Recap by phillip woo

All runners were travelling no better than two off the rails. President Lincoln settled deep without cover in third, rounded the final bend in the centre of the course, swept to the lead 300m out while drifting near the stands side and kept on nicely for an impressive debut success on a suitable wet track. He appears to have some ability and remains one to follow. Wah May Star travelled a handy fifth and two deep, swung the final bend with three wider out, ducked inside for a clear run at the 200m and stayed on nicely for second as the favourite. Keen Wongchoy made his run fourth from the rear with Groovy underneath him, pushed into the clear widest out at the 300m and revelled in the wet going to get up late to collar Time After Time for third. Time After Time saved ground in midfield, straightened with two underneath him, worked to third at the 50m and was collared late for a placing. Just Fantastic was allowed an uncontested time on the lead, hit the straight three lengths on top and was giving way over the final 100m. Groovy made his run second from the rear, straightened closest the far side and made some ground late without menacing. He's more effective at Happy Valley. Open Sesame made his run behind midfield and on the inside, made some progress approaching the final bend, straightened with four underneath him and kept on one-paced over the last 100m. I Smell Money never looked a threat, while Silver Grecian never and fired and Voile Rouge was struggling 200m out.
