The daughter of Kadabra, laid down all the fractions :26, :55.1, 1:22.4, 1:50.2. Hannelore Hanover (Yannick Gingras) would try to take the lead before the first quarter but she had to settle for the pocket trip. She would follow the whole way.

The favourite Pasithea Face S would make her bid first over on the back stretch heading for the turn but she just didn't have it today. Last week she set the track record (1:50.4) but ended up fourth best today.
