Azagal has had 9 starts for 2 wins, and 3 placings. She is trained by Tim Easterby, and came in to the race a hot favourite.
Race report "Held up on the stands' side, chasing the leaders 3 furlongs out, led over 1 furlong out, headed just on the inside of the final furlong, but kept on gamely towards the finish."
There were 21 hopefuls in the race all racing for the pot of gold! The winner Morning Post is by Acclamation, a high-class multiple sprinter at 2 & 4, with an excellent source of precocious and speedy 2YOs.
