Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite, Good Smile tracked the speed in second on the fence, stuck to the inside upon straightening, wore down Fairy Dragon to hit the lead 100m out and kept on gamely to just hold for a maiden win at his 18th start. Racing Legend settled behind midfield and just off the rails, straightened two deep, shifted further into the clear at the 120m and finished well to make it a bob of heads at the line with the drop in grade and stable change. He looks capable of winning at this level. Punted late, Gracytom made his run second from the rear and two deep, was still last and widest out at the 200m and flashed home nicely to figure in the placings. Fairy Dragon punched forward from the widest gate to lead at the 800m, straightened a length and a half on top and was tipped off in the shadows of the post for third with late-punter support. Victory General travelled ahead of midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend six wide and ran on well, before peaking 50m out. Tycoon Taylor travelled fourth from the rear, straightened nearest the inside and made some ground late without threatening. Young Supreme made his run at the rear after blowing the start, pushed four wide at the 300m and was steadied 50m out when making a nice bid late. Joyful Joyful was caught three deep in midfield, straightened five wide, lay in under pressure and came up flat over the final 200m.
