Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Lucky Nine was nicely rated in midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend six deep, cruised to the lead at the 250m and kept on nicely for the win. Time After Time was patiently ridden, switched into the clear widest out at the 400m and finished up strongly to take second with a step up in grade. He remains a sprinter to follow up to 1,400m. Admiration travelled ahead of midfield and on the fence in fifth, straightened two deep and kept on nicely to edge out Cerise Cherry for third with a step back in distance. Cerise Cherry was posted deep with some cover behind midfield from a wide gate, cornered in with two wider out, worked to second at the 100m, before peaking 60m out. It was a nice effort in defeat and he remains one to keep safe in sprints next time. Flying Blue barged his way into the clear at the 200m and kept on well with the move to blinkers. Super Easy cornered in four deep with every chance and gave way over the final 150m. Captain Sweet is possibly on his mark now. Little Bridge was eased down over the final 150m.

When questioned regarding the performance of LITTLE BRIDGE, Z Purton stated that his mount travelled reasonably throughout the race, however, finished off the race only fairly when placed under pressure in the Straight.
