Recap by phillip woo

Sugar settled third along the stands side, switched underneath Regency Ho Ho for clear running at the 350m and wore that one down 30m out for the win in his season debut. Early favourite Regency Ho Ho mustered nicely from an inside alley to eventually lead near the outside fence, opened up near two lengths at the 200m and grudgingly gave way late. Best-backed to jump favourite, newcomer Trendiful made his run in midfield and near the stands side after a sluggish break before running on well for a placing. Longwah Amber made his run fourth from the rear and near the far side following a slow break, before making good ground late in a pleasing debut performance. Fresh Air made some ground late without menacing.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of REAL FIT, M Chadwick stated that his mount travelled very well in the early and middle stages.

He said however that at about the 400 Metres REAL FIT became unbalanced in its action after putting in an awkward stride.

He said after this he rode the horse along and near the 200 Metres it again became unbalanced in its action.

He added after this the horse gave ground noticeably and was most disappointing in the manner in which it failed to close off the race.

He said on pulling up he was of the opinion that REAL FIT initially felt short in its action, however, the horse then trotted back to the unsaddling area satisfactorily.

A veterinary inspection of REAL FIT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
