Recap by phillip woo

Mirage R got off quickly to settle fourth and one off the fence, rallied five wide upon straightening and quickened well to take control 100m out. Kensworth Kid settled midfield and one off the fence, improved at 500m, swung final bend with one wider out and finished up well to snare second with a drop in grade. Mr Speedy led through moderate fractions, cornered three deep a length on top, grudgingly gave way late. Starlit Warrior enjoyed box-seat run, briefly hit the front at 250m, lost a placing in deep stretch. Sunseeker settled third from the rear and along the inside, straightened three deep and made some ground late to finish just outside the placings. Wasn't suited by the tempo, won't be far off a win. Super Brand rolled forward from the widest gate to sit outside the leader in second, cornered five wide and came up one-paced over the final 150m. Watch First made his run fourth from the rear and one off the fence, turned final bend with two wider out and only kept on passed beaten gallopers. Early favourite Chantilly settled second from the rear, swung the final bend widest out and never let down. Best-backed late to jump favourite, King Galileo saved ground behind midfield, peeled four deep upon straightening and couldn't find an extra gear. Sabina settled fifth along the inside, came one off soon after straightening and was giving way over the final 150m.
