Recap by phillip woo

Co-favourite Bernard's Choice settled behind midfield and one off the rails, peeled four deep upon straightening and let down well to take control 100m out for a maiden win at her 22nd start. Just Mistere was ridden quietly fourth from the rear and two off the fence with cover, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished willingly to nail Bold Tack on the line for second. He'll be winning a race at this level in due time. Bold Tack was handy along the rails in fourth, shifted off heels three deep at the 300m, worked to second at the 100m and kept up a good gallop. It was a good run in defeat on the back of a good pace and he won't be far off a sprint success at either course. Friends Of Yan Oi had no choice but to go back in the run from gate 14, was held up five deep until angling into clear running at the 250m and quickened nicely to get into the frame as the late-fancied equal favourite.
