Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Sterling City settled nicely behind midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with two wider out and let down nicely off a light weight to wear down Bullish Champion 50m. Well-punted late, Bullish Champion has been fighting soundness issues, but again showed tremendous fight after hitting the front 250m out after settling one-out, one-back for a game runner-up performance at only his second start for the season. Admiration kept on gamely for a placing. Time After Time had to steady when crowded at the 250m and kept on nicely thereafter in a blanket finish for fourth. Penglai Xianzi recovered following a tardy start to settle behind midfield and on the rails at the 1,000m, straightened four deep and ran on steadily. Captain Sweet enjoyed the gun run on the back of the speed and was one-paced with every chance over the final 150m off a big weight. Zaidan made some late ground without menacing. Charles The Great was posted three deep. Aashiq was kept honest on the lead by Leading City, cornered a half-length on top and was stopping 200m out.
