Tryster claims Classic with fast finish
Report: Lingfield, Friday
Coral Easter Classic All-Weather Middle Distance Championships Conditions Stakes (Class 2) 1m2f, 4yo+
TRYSTER scythed down Complicit in the final furlong in stylish fashion as Charlie Appleby and Godolphin completed a treble on the card.
Sent off the 1-2 favourite, William Buick was content to sit out the back in a race lacking obvious pace.
Jim Crowley did his best to slip the field on Complicit, but had no answer to Tryster's turn of foot in what was ultimately a cosy victory.
Crowley had led under sufferance on Complicit, but he tried to make it work to his advantage, having wound up the pace from half a mile out. Coming off the home turn, he attempted to get away, and did get a break on the field.
However Tryster was too good, and Buick said: "That's his run-style and we were hacking out back.
"He can sprint better than most and we'll see a lot more of him."
Appleby added that the four-year-old, who is unbeaten in five starts this year including the Winter Derby, will now have a break and he is confident he will prove as effective on turf.
Complicit was 5-1 second, with Grendisar, who had also come from off the pace, taking third at 4-1.
Earlier on the card, Appleby won the sprint with the progressive Pretend, and the three-year-old mile with Four Seasons.
