Recap by phillip woo

Winning Mascot made his run worse than midfield and two deep, went forward behind a slackening pace at the 850m to settle three deep in third at the 500m, assumed a narrow lead four deep upon straightening, drew two lengths clear at the 200m and coasted home a class above the rest for a third win from his past four starts. Sunny More shifted three deep off heels at the 700m, swung the final bend five wide and stayed on well to be a clear second. Noble De Best settled third from the rear along the fence, turned the final bend with three wider out, switched off heels into the clear at the 250m and out-finished favourite Grand Elite over the final 200m to snare third. Grand Elite made his run behind midfield and two deep, came out four deep without cover at the 800m, swung the final bend widest out and kept grinding away late to just miss a placing. Dalkan was taken back to last from gate 10, still had a tone of work ahead of him while straightening five wide and did get going late when the race was all but over. He's getting down to a competitive mark, but still looks a better prospect over 1,800m. Tom's Eighth eventually settled fourth from the rear and along the inside at the 800m, straightened three deep and kept on late passed beaten gallopers. Solar Boy dropped anchor after clearing for the lead soon after the break from gate 11, was under siege by Amityship and then Winning Mascot approaching the final bend and was stopping 150m out.
