Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Windicator Star's key to victory was a clean break with a gear change to pacifiers and a tongue-tie. He settled behind midfield and one off the fence, cornered in four wide and quickened nicely to take control 100m out for a cozy win. He can head higher. Super Fresh sat on the back of the speed, before assuming the lead along the fence at the 600m, straightened three deep with a half-length margin on rivals and found one to good while tending to shift out under pressure over the last 100m. Gold Racer settled fifth and just off the rails, swept to third at the 100m and kept on nicely to be a clear third. Fancied late to jump favourite, Bundle Of Love settled fifth and one off the fence, swung the final bend with one wider out and made some ground late to easily grab fourth in the last 50m. Serendipity settled worse than midfield and on the rails, stuck to the inside upon straightening and overhauled Gold Edition in the late stages for some prize money. Gold Edition sat on the back of the speed in fourth along the inside, moved to second one off the fence at the 200m and was running on empty at 100m.

WINDICATOR STAR and GOLD RACER bumped at the start.

Near the 600 Metres, SERENDIPITY shifted in and bumped the running rail.

Shortly after entering the Straight, FOREVER JOYFUL got its head on the side and shifted in towards the heels of HAWTHORNE which itself shifted out slightly.

Throughout the race, FOREVER JOYFUL travelled wide and without cover.
