Stayed on well to take 2nd. Original quote: "Mr Palmtree - After a nice run last time - when fourth at Ludlow on return run - he seems in good form at home, and should be more confident on his second run after a wind op. Ease in grade, plus dropped 5lbs for that last run - Tabitha takes off 5lbs extra too. We are hopeful of at least a place today. 2 1/2 stars."
