2014 Racing Post Analysis :
A one-two for Qatar Racing with HOT STREAK leading home Pearl Secret, the pair well clear. They all raced middle to far side.
Hot Streak, whose top apprentice rider was unable to claim his 3lb allowance, is a tremendously fast horse and, despite being taken on up front by Justineo (who faded to finish sixth), he sustained his challenge to skip clear before easily holding off the runner-up´s late bid. This was a really taking performance from a young, still improving sprinter and, when the emphasis is on speed, European runners at least are going to find him tough to beat.
