Recap by phillip woo

Sight Believer jumped well to lead from gate nine, cornered near two lengths on top and kept finding to easily hold off the favourite Calling With Love for a third career win. Calling With Love settled third and one off the rails from the widest gate, straightened three deep and kept plugging away without ever looking like catching the winner. Hello Kimberley was handy in the run without cover three deep from a wide gate, straightened five wide and got up 100m out for a placing. Meridian Treasure held the rails on the back of the leader and kept plugging away to inject value into the First-4. Mega Champion made his run one off underneath Hello Kimberley and kept on one-paced when popped the question. Cheetah Boy was allowed to find his feet at the rear and made some ground without menacing down the far outside upon straightening. Affluence Of Rain was hammered late in betting but came up flat in the drive after losing ground when badly copping a check in midfield at the 700m. Well-punted late, Gaoling Lucky Star was gone at the 300m and eased down close to home after travelling worse than midfield and near two off the rails following a sluggish break.
