Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Sugar City bided his time behind midfield and nearly three deep with cover after getting crowded at the start, shifted into the open with three wider out at the 400m, forced widest out by Unbeatable Guts at the 300m and let down well when balancing up to run down Wah May Baby in the shadows of the post for an overdue win. Wah May Baby did have to work to eventually lead from a wide gate, cornered a length on top and grudgingly gave way with a drop in class. Unbeatable Guts was a bit keen while travelling fore of midfield and one off the rails with first-time blinkers, swung the final bend six deep and kept on reasonably well despite a tendency to wander in the drive for a placing. Motif sat one off in second, cornered three deep and was caught late for a placing after coming up one-paced over the final 100m. Plenty Of Speed travelled without cover the entire trip in third from the widest gate, straightened four deep and kept on all right. It was a decent effort after a drop in class.

From wide barriers, ISLAND FLYER, WINNING TALENT and AZTEC EMPIRE were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 1200 Metres, AMAZING ALWAYS raced tight inside NO REGRETS which got its head on the side and lay in.

Then after the 900 Metres, AMAZING ALWAYS lost ground when again crowded inside NO REGRETS which shifted in marginally when racing greenly.

WINNING TALENT, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

After the 1000 Metres, DRAGON ENERGY commenced to get its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY FRIENDSHIP.

DRAGON ENERGY then continued to prove difficult to settle and near the 900 Metres was checked away from the heels of HAPPY FRIENDSHIP.

Making the turn after the 900 Metres, UNBEATABLE GUTS raced in restricted room between DRAGON ENERGY and CASTLE KNIGHT which was racing tight inside PLENTY OF SPEED.
