RANTING moved in early, checked after brushing with a foe when the leader crossed in front into the turn, raced under a tight hold especially with the left-rein early on the bend, shifted to the two path while in dead-aim of the leading trio at the five-sixteenths, had leveled out some at this juncture, was asked at the quarter-pole then espied an open seam between foes into upper stretch, bumped with rivals on both sides while making a bid as both of her combatants made the hole tighter, bullied through with good courage to take the lead inside the furlong marker and proved best under a strong hand-ride to the wire.
