Doria, the favourite, set a challenging early pace, attempting to use her stamina to make all. Judea lay second, alongside Kashmir, while Tut Tut felt the pace was too hot early on. After a mile Judea took closer order and began to draw away entering the straight. She won in a canter by 2 1/2 lengths, with just a short head dividing Doria and Kashmir.
