Maximum Glamour and Beauty Blaze, who came from the wide draw to finish third, chased after The Thunder, who quickly took the lead out of the gates.
Ajeeth Kumar and Maximum Glamour attacked The Thunder in the last furlong and a half, but soon discovered Beauty Blaze ranging alongside. Maximum Glamour had previously received a contentious ride from Deepak Singh. As she exhausted seasoned campaigner Maximum Glamour, the bay filly showed no symptoms of rust. The presumptive winner then sped off to an easy victory against Maximum Glamour, who wasn't disheartened given that she was ceding ground to her younger adversary. When it mattered the least, Angel Tesoro took the lead but lost to The Thunder for third place.
The second-most-wanted horse, top-weighted Carlisle, driven by Akshay Kumar, ran foolishly the entire distance and eventually faded away after leading until entering the straight. When given powerful hands, Top Diamond finished fifth and might perform well in his own age group.
Through Salisbury and True Marshall, who were both available at slender odds in the betting ring, Akshay had previously pulled off a back-to-back double. Prior to his dual success, Akshay performed poorly while riding Rising Tycoon and Golden Inzio, two runners who were both highly anticipated.
In the second division of the B Vijay Reddy Memorial Cup, True Marshall (Roderic O'Connor - Lombardia) was backed as if victory was a given, and the gelding trained by Srinivas Reddy validated the market's confidence in him.
Soon after the race began, the bay gelding joined the leaders Hard To Toss and Garnet and took the lead over Garnet, who temporarily flattered in the straight after tangling with Hard To Toss. While this was happening, Sk. Rafique made a mistake by changing lanes just as he was about to attack Bangor On Dee. He made the decision to travel the shortest distance, but as Bangor On Dee approached, the gap was closing, forcing him to make his move from the outside. Garnet and Briar Ridge, who proceeded slowly, finished ahead of Leo D'Silva's ward in second place.">
