Most of these were very nicely backed, in particular the winners.
First up we had Pepertree Lane who went off at 11/2, and looked to make all, but couldn't manage it.
Life Of A Luso came next, after starting at 7/2, rewarded that support with a terrific late burst to win by almost a length, after looking like he was struggling a couple of fences from home.
Desert Shine was a bit short of room at Goodwood, but wouldn't have won, finishing 6th after going off at 13/2
Carhue Princess was there or thereabouts, albeit pushed along, when her rider lost his irons, and she was pulled up after that.
Then came Diamonpeg, who was very well backed right into 7/2, and put in a great front running performance to repel all challengers and win by just over three lengths.
Confirmation of results with prices (advised --- SP)
Pepertree Lane, 7th/12, 10/1 --- 11/2
