Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Designs On Rome was patiently ridden third from the rear and one off the rails, circled the field four deep at the 650m, swung the final bend with one wider out and wore down stablemate Military Attack in the final few strides for a Derby/QE II Cup double and likely claim Horse Of The Year honours. He's a real superstar. Military Attack was handy in the run and one off the rails, roared to the front near the inside at the 250m and just lost out while shifting ground in a thriller. Vercingetorix settled midfield and one off the rails, was shuffled back to near last approaching the final bend, was kept in a pocket with one wider out until barging his way out at the 250m and ran on nicely to secure a placing 150m out. Firming late as the second favourite Epiphaneia was posted three deep in fourth without cover by Military Attack, straightened four deep and kept plugging away to hold down a First-4 spot. He was unlucky. Dibayani switched off at the tail from the widest gate, came widest approaching the final bend and stayed on very well. Packing Whiz travelled second from the rear along the rails and stayed on passed beaten rivals along the inside. Same World set an honest clip on the lead, cornered a length on top and was stopping 250m out. Dominant settled midfield and three deep with cover, straightened five deep and never let down. He's better over the 2,400m. Uncoiled was gone at the 300m after a box-seat run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (581)-THE AUDEMARS PIGUET QEII CUP - Group One - 2000Metres

From the outside barriers, PACKING WHIZ and DIBAYANI were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Despite being vigorously ridden along in the early stages, UNCOILED was slow to muster speed.

VERCINGETORIX was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

DOMINANT also had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Approaching the 200 Metres, SANSHAAWES, which was giving ground, was momentarily crowded for room between SAME WORLD which shifted out under pressure and EPIPHANEIA which, after initially shifting in of its own accord, was taken in marginally by DESIGNS ON ROME.

After the 200 Metres, MILITARY ATTACK shifted out and brushed DESIGNS ON ROME.

VERCINGETORIX was shifted out away from the heels of DESIGNS ON ROME, resulting in DIBAYANI having to be steadied away from the heels of that horse after the 150 Metres.

For the majority of the race, EPIPHANEIA travelled wide and without cover.

DESIGNS ON ROME and MILITARY ATTACK were sent for sampling.
