Recap by phillip woo

Talley Close was parked on the back of the leaders in third, shuffled back to fifth and one off approaching the 800m, cornered in five wide, forced deeper by with three wider out at the 200m and out-finished favourite Cosmic Boom 50m out for the win with a drop in grade and switch to Happy Valley to cap a popular Quinella result. Cosmic Boom eventually settled one-out, one-back, cornered in five wide, tended to lay about under pressure and stayed on well to be clear second. Specked late, Lucky Turbo went straight to the front, cornered a half-length on top, was headed 50m out and kept on gamely to just hold third. Super Plus pressed forward from a wide gate to eventually get outside the leader Lucky Turbo at the 800m, peeled five wide upon straightening and gave a good sight to make it close for third. Adoration made his run behind midfield and two-to-three deep, rounded the final bend four deep and was battling away late to get up for a minor pay cheque with a step back in trip. Import My Name Is Bond travelled at the rear and one off the fence, cornered in two deep and made some progress late to just miss a pay slip in an improved performance at his fifth start. Jumbo Gold was faltering over the final 200m. Carry The Zeal was taken back from a wide gate at the start, still only had two beaten while cornering widest out at the 250m and never did fire.
