Recap by phillip woo

Fancied late to start favourite in his debut, Sea Diamond rushed forward from a wide gate to settle fourth and three deep early one, before slotting in with cover two deep at the 600m, rounded the final bend four wide, peeled further out for a clear run at the 360m and finished off well to take control 50m out in a promising performance. He's still green, but has the talent to head higher. Mr Award settled third and two deep, cornered in four deep, hit the front 250m out and kept on gamely to be a clear second with a return to Class Four. He's got more wins in him. Giggles Forever settled behind midfield and on the fence, straightened three deep and got going to get up for a placing in the final 10m. Why Not travelled fourth from the rear and two deep from a wide gate, straightened four wide and finished up well to finish just outside the placings in a pleasing debut. He's got some ability of his own and remains one to follow. Serendipity travelled fifth along the fence, straightened three deep, moved to third at the 200m and was swamped in the final 10m for a placing. Quite Confidence travelled ahead of midfield and one off the fence, straightened four deep on the heels of Sea Diamond, pushed further into the clear at the 300m and made steady ground. He's improving with racing. Early favourite Silver Dragon came up one-paced in the dash to the wire.

When questioned, A Suborics stated that as TOAST FOR TROPHY had not been finishing off its races when ridden to obtain forward positions, it had been decided to ride the horse more conservatively today.

He said it was hoped that TOAST FOR TROPHY would be able to obtain a position in about midfield.
