Recap by phillip woo

Secret Agent was positively ridden one off in second from the widest gate, cornered three deep and quickened well to win going away at the 180m to land a betting plunge. Mi Savvy settled one-out, one-back, straightened four deep and flashed by Grace Heart 80m out for second. Grace Heart went straight to the front from a wide gate, cornered two lengths on top and was grudgingly giving way over the last 100m. Cheers Victories settled one off in midfield, went forward three deep at the 500m, cornered five deep and kept plugging away to fill the frame. China Power was grinding away following a one-off run in midfield to pick up a minor pay cheque. Precious Gem made some ground from near the back. Firming favourite Friends Of Yan Oi was never properly tested in the run to the wire when twice copping a check after travelling behind midfield along the rail after jumping slowly. He had excuses. Rugby Diamond never let down three from the right upon straightening after travelling one off behind midfield.
