Recap by phillip woo

Turin Champion relished a return to the dirt for a second win on the surface from his past four starts. He travelled nicely ahead of midfield and one off the fence, held up for a run upon straightening until bursting through a gap to take control 100m out. Darpana settled third from the rear and two deep, cornered with two wider out and ran on well under a big weight to wear down short-priced favourite City Delight. City Delight jumped well before assuming the box-seat run behind the leader Ming Hoi Glory, worked to the lead four deep at the 200m and went down fighting. Fiery Raider travelled effectively one-out, one-back, rounded the final bend five wide and stayed on one-paced with every chance. Oyster was posted three deep and behind midfield, swung the final bend widest out and was running on well when the race was all over. Specked late, Lucky Boy was handy along the rails behind City Delight, shifted three deep at the 250m and kept on one-paced. Shanghai Pioneer switched sharply into the clear at the 250m and was running on late without threatening. Ming Hoi Glory worked hard to eventually lead at the 800m from a wide gate, cornered narrowly on top from Spicy Shrimp and was gassed 100m out. Wasabisabi badly missed the start and made no impression. Ho Ho Dash had to take a hold and was never tested.
