Three years down the track. this race has sort of settled in to the racing calendar. The race has lots of prizemoney. All nine placegetters over the three years that the race has been running have been horses of high quality: Mystic Journey. Hartnell, Alizee, Regal Power, Superstorm, Melody Belle, Mugatoo, Russian Camelot, Behemoth.
It may well be a quirky way the field is put together but surely what matters is the final result and, so far, that result is A1.
