Caprisca, owned by KH Vachha, went on to beat its closest rival as the racegoers witnessed some astute riding by P Trevor. The three-year-old bay colt by Steinbeck-Xisca, sailed through with a dazzling run to post victory.

In The Potential Champion Plate Terms race, Clymene, ridden by A Sandesh and trained by Faisal A Abbas, defeated Lady Almeda by a huge 6 1/4 lengths.
