Recap by phillip woo

Holmes Legend drove forward to settle one off in second at the 1,400m, cornered in four deep and took control 100m out for a first win at his ninth start. He's improved after joining the Chris So yard and can head higher. Late-fancied favourite Redwood Baby settled behind midfield and one off the rails, could improve when appearing to want to between runners at the 600m, rounded the final bend six deep and finished up willingly to make it interesting at the wire, despite the step up in class in a moderately run race. He looks a talented individual and can head a lot higher. Golden Addiction was given a good ride to find a position one-out, one-back, rolled to the front four deep at the 200m and found a couple just too good in the end. It was a nice run in defeat, despite a rise in class. Royal Partner settled three back along the rails, angled into the clear with three wider out upon straightening and ran on steadily to grab a First-4 spot close to home. Noble Boy settled second from the rear and one off the rails after getting hampered soon after the start, rallied four deep upon straightening and had to slam on the brakes 50m out when surging late. Axiom set an even pace after rolling to the front at the 1,400m, cornered narrowly on top and was stopping 150m out.
