Recap by phillip woo

Pleasure Gains settled second from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend widest out and let down like a good horse to win with something in hand. He remains one to follow. Approve eased back to settle third at the 600m after stalking the speed, worked to the front at the 150m and found one too classy in the end. Supreme Essence bided his time third from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend with one wider out and was finishing up nicely to make it close at the finish. Amazingly travelled behind midfield and on the rails, was in traffic four deep upon straightening, worked into the clear at the 100m and stayed on nicely for fourth. He was terribly unlucky not to have gone closer. Elegance Klammer travelled worse than midfield and one off the rails, worked forward when the anchor dropped to get to second at the 800m, straightened three deep with every chance and was flat over the final 150m. Well-punted late, Supreme Flight only held his ground over the last 100m. Bullish Boy rushed forward from a wide gate to lead outright exiting the first bend, was softened at the 800m by Elegance Klammer, cornered a length on top and was stopping 100m out. Favourite Flying Elite only kept on evenly over the final 200m.

After this, GLORIOUS RYDER was taken across behind runners.

As the start was effected, AMAZINGLY lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently began only fairly.

From the outside barrier, PLEASURE GAINS was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the 900 Metres, ELEGANCE KLAMMER was taken into a position without cover by FLYING ELITE which, when commencing to prove difficult to settle, shifted away from the heels of SUPREME FLIGHT which was awkwardly placed close to the heels of APPROVE.

After this, FLYING ELITE continued to prove difficult to settle for some distance and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BLOSSOM DAILY.

Near the 850 Metres, EMPEROR CLAUDIUS, which was proving difficult to settle, was steadied away from the heels of FLYING ELITE.

At the 300 Metres, AMAZINGLY was checked and shifted in when disappointed for running between BLOSSOM DAILY and EMPEROR CLAUDIUS.

Approaching the 200 Metres, EMPEROR CLAUDIUS was steadied when crowded for room between FLYING ELITE and BLOSSOM DAILY which, when commencing to give ground, shifted out slightly under pressure.

SUPREME FLIGHT had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and after the 200 Metres was shifted to the inside of the heels of ELEGANCE KLAMMER to continue improving.

Passing the 150 Metres, AMAZINGLY was crowded for room between ELEGANCE KLAMMER and BLOSSOM DAILY which, when weakening, got its head on the side and shifted in away from SUPREME ESSENCE which shifted in in advance of BLOSSOM DAILY.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of FLYING ELITE, T H So stated that when the pace slackened after the 1000 Metres, FLYING ELITE commenced to over-race for a short distance but then travelled better after shifting away from the heels of SUPREME FLIGHT.

He said FLYING ELITE came under pressure at the 500 Metres and after briefly responded to his riding was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race.
