Recap by phillip woo

Debutant Green Eagle tracked the speed in fourth along the fence, overcame Supreme De Union, who was drifting out at the 200m, three deep at the 50m and kept on nicely from a late-finishing Wiser for a smart win. Wiser settled fourth from the rear and two deep, shifted off a tiring Vital Smart at the 150m and was finishing best of all late to edge Supreme De Union for second. Well-punted late, Supreme De Union led or shared the lead one off the fence from Vital Smart to his inside and Secret Of Winning planted to his outside, moved away by a length three deep at the 300m and got tired while hanging out over the final 200m. Serendipity travelled in midfield and two-to-three deep with cover, straightened three deep and kept on well to fill the frame in fourth. Danewin Tiger settled ahead of midfield and two deep, shifted into the clear six wide at the 250m and stayed on reasonably well to just miss a First-4 spot. He's better at 1,200m. Vital Smart held the rails on the speed, narrowly put a head in front at the 450m, headed soon after straightening and couldn't keep up the gallop over the final 100m. Assure was hard ridden to hold a handy position two-to-three deep near the speed, cornered five wide upon straightening and was gone at the 250m. Favourite Secret Of Winning never had cover three-to-four deep on the speed and was struggling five wide at the 300m.

Also approaching the 800 Metres, SERENDIPITY was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of SUPREME DE UNION.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, LAGO EXPRESS was steadied when crowded for room between VITAL SMART which got its head on the side and shifted out and SUPREME DE UNION.

Near the 100 Metres, ASSURE and LAGO EXPRESS bumped.
