Recap by phillip woo

Highland Dragon took the sit one off in second or third after jumping very well, reclaimed the front soon after straightening and edged clear to score a maiden win at his 23rd start. Favourite Spicy Shrimp was handy in the run and one off the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and ran on steadily to grab second 80m out. He had no excuses. Mega made his run at the tail following a slow break, rounded the final bend widest out and finished willingly to edge Flying Keeper for a placing with money coming for him late. Flying Keeper made his run behind midfield along the rails, stayed on the paint upon straightening and ran on all right. Daily Double settled three back along the fence, peeled four deep upon straightening and kept plugging on without menacing over the final 100m with every chance. China Good settled second from the rear, rounded the final bend six deep and ran on passed beaten rivals. Lucky Red dictated the running passing the 800m, straightened narrowly on top and was giving way 150m out in a disappointing effort. Happy Goal was never on the course worse than midfield from a wide gate and was beaten a long ways out.
