Recap by phillip woo

Jumping co-favourite with good betting support, Happy Index cleared from gate nine to lead at the 1,000m, cornered a half-length on top and kept on gamely for the win at only his second start in a pace-dominated race. He's got room for improvement and will be winning more races on either surface. My Whisky settled one-out, one-back after dipping at the break, straightened three deep and wore down Delish 100m out to take second. Delish enjoyed the box-seat run, stayed to the rails upon straightening and kept on well for a placing. Shanghai Pioneer made his run behind midfield and two deep and was the only one making any serious ground to fill the frame in fourth. Rainbow Seeker settled three back and two deep to the outside of Lucky Boy, rounded the final bend five wide and made only a mild bid. Equal favourite Fiery Raider was under the pump with two wider out and was making no impression in a flat performance. Lucky Boy found little under the whip and gave up the chase the last 100m. Oyster made no impression.
