Recap by phillip woo

Admiration was settled fifth and one off the fence, was scrubbed up to make ground entering the final bend, hit the straight five wide and finished willingly to overpower Horse Galore 100m out for the win in his dirt debut. He's a top sprinter in the making and remains one to follow on either surface. Horse Galore sat second and just off the fence nearly two lengths behind the runaway leader Romantic City, powered to the front 200m out, but was no match for the winner, but still a clear second. It was a blanket finish of six for third, but it went to Happy Prestige, who came with a bold bid late down the far outside after going back from the widest gate. St Fevre bided his time behind midfield and near the inside after breaking sluggishly, straightened two deep and ran on well to make it tight for third. London China Town was rated fourth and one off the fence, straightened four wide and whacked away late to just miss a placing. Happy Reunion made his run second from the rear after a sluggish breaking, cornered in three wide and finished off with plenty of purpose to just miss a placing. Flashing Aura made his run behind midfield and two deep, swung the final bend six wide and was getting going late. Tuscan Spirit enjoyed the box-seat run and kept plugging on late. King Al Akbar made his run worse than midfield and two deep, rallied five wide and never was making much of an impression late. He's better over a longer trip.
