The time wasn’t very good considering Ifraaj had a clear run all the way. The pace looked steady until the winner quickened away from the others who were getting in each other’s way. A canny ride from Frankie. Visually impressive, certainly, but I wouldn’t put too much trust in the solidity of the form. Next time it might be somebody else’s turn to steal the race.

I hope that’s as true over two Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â mile five as it is over seven…..
