In what was a fast and furious renewal of the Sycamore Stakes, the race took a bit of time to spring into life with Cellist and Channel Maker doing all of the early running. As the field hit the far turn, a wall of horses had gathered in behind ready to launch their challenge. 

For Bold Act, his fate was left to the racing gods, with half a dozen horses in front of him and short of racing room he would need several gaps to appear. 

With the pace starting to collapse, Bold Act was able to pick a seam up the inside rail and gradually shuffled his way forward. 

Making one last push, Jamie Spencer was able to push Bold Act wide and fired him through a gap on Cellist’s outside. He was able to draw alongside deep inside the final furlong and sprinted on by.

With just twenty yards left to run, the move would prove to be decisive and Bold Act would get up to win by a length. 

Cellist would have to settle for second with Limited Liability finishing fast back in third.
