Recap by phillip woo

Speedy pressed on to sit outside the leader Gorgeous Life through moderate fractions, levelled up two deep for the front at the 200m and wore that one down 50m out with a return to his preferred 1,400m. Firming favourite, Gorgeous Life dropped anchor while quickly hitting the front from gate 10, straightened nearly a length on top, was challenged at the 200m and went down narrowly under a good battle. Mega Castle settled one-out, one-back, rallied four wide upon straightening and stayed on well to just take third. Alp's Glory settled fifth and one off the fence, swung the final bend five wide and kept on one-paced with every chance. Specked late, Epee De Hua settled three back and on the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening tight for room behind the leading pair and was never tested. General Danroad travelled behind midfield and on the rails, peeled five wide at the 350m, ducked to the fence for a clear run passing the 200m and kept on without threatening. Glittering was a handy third along the rails, straightened three-to-four-deep and plugged on evenly over the final 150m. Just Good was never better than fourth deep and only held his ground. Surrounded He wasn't suited by the pace.
