Riviere set the early pace, closely attended by Indiana, Juliet II and Mallow Maid. After 2 furlongs Mallow Maid took closer order, leading until halfway, but then was a spent force. Juliet II took charge at that point and drew clear to win unchallenged by 4 lengths, with a short head between Nehushta and Morette.
