Recap by phillip woo

Good Boy Boy held the fence on the lead from Hawthorne to his outside, assumed a clear lead at the 500m, straightened two lengths on top and drew away over the final 100m for a cozy win off a light weight. Charles The Great travelled fourth from the rear and two deep, shuffled further back to second last approaching the final bend, cornered in four deep, pushed into the clear with two wider out at the 200m and was hitting the line with purpose to shade El Zonda in the final stride for second. Early favourite El Zonda travelled worse than midfield and two deep, straightened four deep and ran on well to snare third from Oriental Prosper in the shadows of the post for third. Punted late, Oriental Prosper settled third and one off the fence, pushed four wide rounding the final bend, worked to second at the 200m and was swamped in the final 10m for a placing. Bear Hero swung the final bend with one wider out and made some ground late without threatening in his course debut as the late-fancied favourite. Super Plus settled a handy fifth and one off the fence, rounded the final bend with three wider out and kept on evenly to just miss out on some minor prize money. Charity Spirit settled midfield and on the rails, straightened two deep and only held his ground in the dash to the line.
