Recap by phillip woo

Finn Maccool was able to avoid the broken down Can Do while settling worse than midfield and just off the rails at the 600m, straightened three deep, pushed into the clear six deep at the 350m and wore down Gift Is Gift 20m from the line for an upset win. Gift Is Gift was cast widest out on the speed from gate 12, held a narrow lead at the 600m, cornered a head on top of Flying Together underneath him, drew a length clear at the 150m and could hold the winner. Highland Dragon settled fifth and one off the fence, straightened four deep, moved to second at the 100m and kept on a clear third. Smart Kids was posted behind midfield and three deep and was doing his best work late to grab fourth just ahead of Happy Ceramibo and Carry The Zeal. Happy Ceramibo was posted three deep ahead of midfield, was able to just avoid Can Do at the 600m, swung the final bend six deep and got going in the final 100m. Carry The Zeal settled third and along the inside after challenging for the lead, straightened three deep and didn't have much to offer over the final 200m with every chance. Firming favourite Can Do unseated his rider Douglas Whyte - causing severe interference to those travelling behind him, including Lucky Record (unseating Umberto Rispoli), Bernard's Choice and First In Command, who never recovered.
