WHITTAKER –

Trotter had post 10, left, tucked, went first over into a quick third quarter and held well

Trotted a strong middle-half power-brushing to the lead, held the place gamely

TAMAYO –

Left quickly, yielded, regained at the half and held on gamely against the bias

FALL BLISS –

Left alertly, yielded, was shuffled, finished well late

CIVILIZED HANOVER –

STONEBRIDGE ROCKET –

Was used hard to secure the lead past a :54.4 half, took on immediate pressure from the tough winner and held okay against the bias

Razor sharp 7yo blasted to the lead in :25.3, set a hot clip and dug in bravely to win in 1:48 flat on a below-freezing night

ROCKIN THE HOUSE*** -

Left from post 7 and was parked to the lead in :26, yielded and was badly shuffled back, finished gamely in :26.4

GET IT NOW*** –

Three deep from post 9 while one of several horses out in the flow early, took the lead past the half, yielded to strong pressure and held okay
