Recap by phillip woo

Shanghai Pioneer was patiently ridden fourth from the rear and along the rails, straightened three deep in traffic, barged his way out five off the fence at the 200m and let down nicely to take control 10m out for the win with a key drop in grade for a maiden success at his 22nd start. Favourite Turin Champion bided his time third from the rear and two-to-three deep with cover, swung the final bend with one wider out and was finishing best of all late to edge out Marvel Plus in the final bound for second. He's ready to win at this level. Marvel Plus was prominently along the fence in fourth, worked to the lead two deep at the 100m and was swamped late with a drop in grade for his new trainer. Fast Intentions travelled in midfield and along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening, eventually shifted into the clear outside of Marvel Plus at the 200m and ran on reasonably well to finish just outside the placings with some late-backing. Fairy Dragon had to work a bit to lead from gate 10 at the 850m, straightened a length on top and gave way over the final 100m. In the market late, Hey Ha Master enjoyed a comfortable run three back and one off the fence, cornered in four deep and whacked on one-paced over the final 100m with every chance. Bingo Bingo was posted three deep and worse than midfield, hit the straight with two wider out and was struggling 200m out.
