Recap by phillip woo

Penglai Xianzi rolled forward off a deep trip from the widest gate passing the 800m, straightened a length on top and kept finding to finish level for the win at long odds with Fulfil A Wish, who settled midfield and on the rails, shifted into the clear three deep at the 300m and got up in the final bound. Keen Marie settled fourth and one off the fence, straightened four deep, loomed a winning chance at the 100m and came up just short over the last 50m while just holding Fat Choy Oohlala for third. The latter bided his time behind midfield and two deep, turned the final bend with two wider out and got going late to make it close at the finish. Real Supreme pinged straight to the front from a middle gate, handed up to enjoy the box-seat run at the 900m, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept on OK. Aomen kept on one-paced over the last 150m, while Let Me Handle It pulled into the clear with one wider out and kept on passed beaten gallopers. Beauty Flash hates a wet track. Elegance Klammer was never a factor.
