D’Orsogna Family-Roma Cup, Group 3 : Ascot - 18th May 2019

Vital Silver wins D’Orsogna Family-Roma Cup Group 3 $150,000 at Ascot, 1200m.


The Daniel and Ben Pearce-trained gelding Vital Silver scored a good first-up win in a closely fought finish.

He began well and settled outside the leader (Great Shot), challenged at the home turn, got to a narrow lead inside the final 100m and then fought best to win in by a short neck.

The favourite Galaxy Star settled back in second last place on the rails in the ten-horse field, eased deeper and into clear running at the 200m and then zoomed home for a late-closing second in a smart and unlucky first-up performance.

Great Shot showed is usual pace to lead and led the field until the final stages and then held on well for a close-up third.
