Pearl Ash was quickest into her stride and on settling down led alongside Elunyd, with El Obeid and Noble Princess close up. After 2 furlongs El Obeid took over and led until the field turned into the straight, at which point Elunyd regained the advantage. Inside the distance Miss Hazlewood made rapid progress to mount a challenge to Elunyd, and the issue was settled in a matter of strides when Miss Hazlewood strode on to win by 2 1/2 lengths, with a length back to El Obeid.
