Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Travel Guide enjoyed the box-seat run, stayed near the inside upon straightening, hit the front 150m out and drew clear for a cozy win. Easy Ahead dictated the run from the outset through even fractions, straightened a length on top and kept on gamely to just hold second. Goldmen Y Y settled behind midfield and on the rails, rallied five wide upon straightening, ducked inside Good Fellow at the 150m and out-dashed that one to grab third. Good Fellow settled fifth along the paint, shifted into the clear five wide at the 250m and ran on steadily to just miss a placing. He can get away with a run at this level. Record High sat one off the fence in second, cornered in four deep and came up flat in the last 100m with every chance. Specked late, Young Hero settled behind midfield and on the rails, straightened three deep and made some ground late without threatening to figure in the placings. Hollywood Kiss settled behind midfield and outside Young Hero in the run, rounded the final bend with one wider out and made some progress late, despite a gear change to blinkers and drop in grade.
