Recap by phillip woo

Classa made his run third from the rear and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and quickened nicely to get up in deep straight for the win. Healthy Contender settled three back with cover two deep, rallied five wide upon straightening, hit the front 50m out and found one better in the end. Mister Horse made his run at the rear from a wide gate, turned the final bend with one wider out and was hitting the line with purpose to claim a placing. Noble Twins settled behind midfield and two deep, shifted into the clear six deep at the 250m and stayed on well for fourth. He'll be one to follow up on over 1,800m or 2,000m. Early favourite Brothers In Arms punched the breeze to the outside of the leader Sonofthewest, hit the front three deep at the 150m and came up flat over the final 100m with every chance. Tang Palace settled one-out, one-back in the run, cornered in four deep and kept on one-paced with a step up to the mile and drop in grade. Master Dragon was always off the track around midfield, straightened six deep and kept on one-paced. Gorgeous Ruler came up surprisingly empty as the late-fancied favourite. O'Reilly Magic stayed to the inside upon straightening and found little in another disappointing performance, despite a key riding change to Brett Prebble and return to a tongue-tie.
