Recap by phillip woo

Croatia settled second from the rear and one off the rails, made his move 600m out, swung the final bend with one wider out and finishing strongly get up 80m out for a first win at his 21st start. He was suited by the wet going. Glorious Avenue made his run one off in midfield, rallied four deep and ran on steadily to wear get into the runner-up spot 50m out. Well-punted late, Everyone's Choice went straight to the front from gate one, straightened two lengths on top and grudgingly gave way late. Rank outsider, Fluke switched off second from the rear from a wide alley, cornered three from the right and was doing some nice work late to snatch fourth from Perfect Triumph, who peaked on a his move 50m out following a rail's run in midfield. High Speed Metro settled one off the rail behind midfield after missing the kick, cornered four-to-five deep and made some ground without menacing.
