Recap by phillip woo

Snitzel Kid was ridden to eventually lead at the 900m, moved nearly two length clear while turning the final bend three deep and kept finding to score a nice win. Drifting in the betting, How Speedy recovered to settle behind midfield and near the inside at the 800m after a slow break, stayed to the paint upon straightening and quickened well to easily get into the Quinella spot at the 100m. Great Pegasus eventually found a position three back and on the rails after jumping with the leaders, cornered four-to-five deep and wore down the late-fancied Pure Force in the final bob of heads to round out the trio. Pure Force was posted three deep better than midfield, stroke forward to second outside the leader at the 600m, rounded the final bend five wide and grudgingly gave way late. Specked late, Empire City made his run fourth from the rear and near the rails, came two deep upon straightening and ran on steadily late, despite the return to Class Four. Plunged late, Sight Lover was parked behind midfield and three deep with some cover, rounded the final bend widest out and made some progress late without menacing. He continues to be anchored by a big weight in recent runs.
