Recap by phillip woo

The battle-hardened Speedy Sandy quickly established a two-length margin after 50m, despite running into a headwind; was pressed underneath at the 700m by Excel Oneself, shook that one off and edged clear at the 200m for a maiden win at his fourth start. Newcomer Real Fit was handy in the centre of the course near the far side and really got going inside the final 100m to nail another first-time Fire Starter on the line for second. Fire Starter picked up under the pump to get to second at the 150m and condition gave way 50m out. Fantastic Kaka made his run worse than midfield after breaking awkwardly near the far side from gate one before doing some nice work late in a pleasing debut. Favourite Ah Bo travelled fore of midfield and near the stands side and came up one-paced when popped the question.

After the 500 Metres, GOOD YIELD was awkwardly placed close to the heels of REAL FIT and then after the 400 Metres was again awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPILY TIME.

At the 50 Metres, EAGLE KING shifted in a considerable amount of ground abruptly when being checked away from the heels of AH BO and EXCEL ONESELF.

As a consequence of EAGLE KING's abrupt shift, HAPPILY TIME was checked and GOOD YIELD was hampered.

After the race, D Whyte stated that AH BO raced greenly and shifted ground on a number of occasions during the event.

AH BO, SPEEDY SANDY and REAL FIT were sent for sampling.
