Recap by phillip woo

Alpinefield settled midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend five deep, poked his head in front at the 150m and edged clear in deep stretch for a first win with a return to blinkers at his second start under the guidance of Richard Gibson. Ambassadorship settled one-out, one-back, straightened three deep and got up in the final few metres for second. Agiaal made his run behind midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with three wider out and finished up nicely to grab a placing close to home. Holmes Legend did it very tough without cover in third from a wide gate, briefly led 150m out and was swamped in deep stretch. He'll be hard to beat from a good alley. Spinning Dancer was doing some nice work late to just finish out of the placings. Medallist was handy along the rails, rounded the final bend four deep and only held his ground in the drive. Real Generous travelled underneath Agiaal in the run, rounded the final bend five deep and plugged away without menacing. Backbench Blues made some ground late down the outside from the back of the field. Ambitious Champion was up vying for the lead along the rails with Emperor Claudius through genuine fractions, was fourth and one off upon straightening and stopping 150m out.

Approaching the 200 Metres, ALPINEFIELD got its head on the side, shifted in and brushed AMBASSADORSHIP, causing that horse to be awkwardly placed outside the hindquarters of HOLMES LEGEND.

Near the 150 Metres, AMBASSADORSHIP raced tight inside ALPINEFIELD.
