Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on choice, Designs On Rome was patiently ridden second from the rear with arch-rival Able Friend a position closer, circled the field out wide at the 700m, cornered with one deeper out, simultaneously hit the front with Able Friend at the 200m and out-dueled that one in a thriller for the win. He's a top performer over 1,800m and further and remains one to follow. Firming late in betting, Able Friend took the shorter route home four deep upon straightening, drew nearly level at the 150m and went down fighting tooth-and-nail. He lost nothing in defeat and looks a very hard one to beat on the top stage at a mile. Dibayani lacked the conditioning of his rivals, but produced a sensational run of his own to come from the tail of the field after switching off from the widest gate to loom a winning chance 150m out before flattening 50m out to come home a clear-cut third. Mr Gnocchi stuck on reasonably well for a First-4 spot. Flame Hero came up one-paced under the left whip over the final 200m. Wayfoong Express ran on steadily late in a pleasing performance.
