Trained by Miss. G Ward. Owned by Mr. J Kippen.

Dormah De Brugere (Dormane x Ballade Folle) hasn’t won at Group level since her juvenile days, but she made no mistake here making her class count to start this season off in a decisive manner for new trainer Georgina Ward who has won this race three times in the last four years. CS Malik (Makzan x Ciarosa) ran a blinder on his first run of the season making all and quickening the pace in the final two furlongs and rallying hard in the final furlong just failing to hold on to the more experienced turn of foot of Dormah, he lost nothing in defeat and heads straight for the Derby Trial in June. Olivphaya (Vert Olive x Phaya) is a very talented mare on her day and she rallied well in the final furlong and kept on for third ahead of the one paced Circuit Chaser.
