Recap by phillip woo

Master Key handed up the lead to Hero's Win at the 1,200m, reclaimed the front at the 400m and kept increasing the advantage for an overdue win with a key 10-pound claim. He has turned the corner for the better and remains a danger off a light weight in the next grade. Lucky Nistelrooy travelled a bit keenly in fourth and just off the fence, straightened near the inside and kept on gamely to hold off Mochi for second. Mochi settled behind midfield and two deep, rallied four deep upon straightening and was grinding away late. Sohna was posted three deep without cover to the outside of Mochi, straightened five wide and stayed on well to fill the frame in fourth. King On Earth made his run second from the rear, pushed widest out at the 300m and ran on well when the race was all over. Favourite Longwah Kid travelled two and three deep ahead of midfield, avoided a collision four deep with Harvest Dancer, who took a bit step around the 600m, hit the straight to the outside of Mochi and found little under a left whip.
