Recap by phillip woo

Mr Marfach was sweating on a run from the outset in third and on the rails, pushed four deep upon straightening, swept to the lead 250m out and kept on real well for the win with a key step up in trip. Supreme Tycoon was deep on the speed from the jump, crossed to the fence 1,800m out, straightened nearly two lengths on top and kept on gamely when headed to hold second. Eagle Spirit shifted into Dalkan at the 200m and finished up well for third as the late-fancied favourite. He was certainly suited by the rise in trip. Dalkan copped a bump three deep at the 200m and stayed on nicely to fill the frame an improved fourth. Young Hero tracked the leaders fourth and one off the fence, swung the final bend with two wider out and kept on one-paced without threatening with the step up in trip. Early favourite Super Strike made his run at the rear, swung the final bend four deep and made some ground without threatening. Solar Wonder made his run fourth from the rear and two deep, hit the straight with one wider out and only pass beaten runners. Watch First made his run behind midfield and three deep, ran into the hind of a tiring Prosperity six wide at the 300m and wasn't doing much thereafter. Mark Good made his run second from the rear, cornered in widest out and never let down with the sharp step up in trip. Prosperity sat outside the leader in second and weakened soon after straightening.

SOLAR WONDER and GREAT SHOW bumped at the start.

After this, despite being ridden along in the early stages, SOLAR WONDER was slow to muster speed.

Near the 2100 Metres, MARK GOOD got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SOLAR WONDER.

Near the 1600 Metres, PROSPERITY, which was racing keenly, was shifted out away from the heels of SUPREME TYCOON which shifted in when barely clear.

In the middle stages, SOLAR WONDER proved difficult to settle and was steadied away from the heels of EAGLE SPIRIT.

Passing the 600 Metres, GREAT SHOW was checked away from the heels of MR MARFACH after improving to the inside of that horse where there was insufficient room.

DALKAN, which was following, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GREAT SHOW in consequence.

Shortly after entering into the Straight, DALKAN was bumped by EAGLE SPIRIT which shifted in away from the heels of PROSPERITY.

Apprentice Ho was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

Throughout the race, WATCH FIRST travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of PROSPERITY after the race did not show any significant findings.
