Recap by phillip woo

Fancied late to jump favourite, Sterling City eventually slotted in with cover in midfield at the 800m, rounded the final bend five deep, swept to a narrow lead at the 150m from Bullish Champion and just brushed that one aside to raise in his game to another level with a Group Two success. Bullish Champion settled one off in second, assumed the front 350m out and went down fighting. Charles The Great settled behind midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished up nicely for a placing. Early favourite Frederick Engels made his run third from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend widest out and ran on reasonably well under a big weight. He'll be a force to be reckoned with off a set weight. California Bounty ensured the pace was good on the engine, cornered nearly a length on top and outclassed inside the final 150m with a step up in grade and distance. Best Eleven enjoyed a nice run along the rails, straightened three deep and wasn't good enough when push came to shove. Solar Great switched off at the rear from a wide gate, still had a tonne of work ahead of him after straightening with one wider out and made some headway late without menacing.
