Recap by phillip woo

Winner's Delight settled behind midfield and two off the rails, got going out wide at the 400m, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished willingly to grab Verdane on the wire for the win as the firming favourite. He's still open to improvement and can head higher. Verdane settled midfield and two off the rails, rolled forward to lead at the 750m and was beaten a whisker while coming out a clear second. Goldland Dancer settled midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and finished well to grab a placing 100m out. Tai Po Fortune took the sit in the box-seat after leading early on, stayed near the inside upon straightening and only held his ground in the drive. Xilai Xianzi bided his time third from the back along the rails, straightened two off the fence and made some ground late without threatening. Danesouth eventually worked to the lead at the 1,200m, took the sit when headed at the 700m, came one off upon straightening and was giving way over the final 200m. El Grande was wasn't really picking up under pressure when getting hampered 250m out.
