At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Godolphin's imported US-bred 6YO gelding It's Somewhat (Dynaformer-Sometime, by Royal Academy) registered his fourth stakes victory since arriving in Australia when scoring by 4.8 lengths for trainer John O'Shea in the $150,000 Gr3 Craven Plate (2000m) for 3YO+, over 7YO French-bred entire Spiritjim (Galileo-Hidden Silver, by Anabaa) & 6YO NZ-bred gelding Pinstripe Lane (Pins-Singasong, by Danasinga). It's Somewhat, who boasted excellent European form around the likes of Gr1 winners Mukhadram and Trading Leather before he arrived in Australia, advanced his record to 6 wins (including the Gr2 Ajax Stakes, Gr3 Neville Sellwood Stakes & Gr3 Liverpool City Cup) 9 placings (including the Gr1 Coral Eclipse, Gr2 Royal Lodge Stakes & Gr3 Gordon Stakes) from 28 starts for $868,929 earnings.
