Driver Redmond Doucet dashed the 1-5 favourite to the point heading to a :29.1 first quarter with Rockemsockem Scott settling into second and Thunder Alley into third. The field remained in single-file order through a :58.2 half and to three-quarters in 1:27.1 before Rotten Ronnie wrapped the job a 2-1/4-length winner in a 1:55.4 mile. Rockemsockem Scott held second while Dam Lucky grabbed third from Thunder Alley.
