Recap by phillip woo

Gold Talent settled three back along the rails, hit the front five deep at the 80m and held off the late surge of Bear Pop for the win. Bear Pop was ridden cold second from the rear from a wide gate, shifted into the clear with one wider at the 300m and finished well to grab second. Late-fancied favourite Sparkling Sword settled one off ahead of midfield, swung the final bend six deep and kept grinding away to grab third on the wire from Jade Pippo, who plugged away one off the fence after enjoying a rail's run on the back of the speed. All Ways Best had only one beaten coming to the final bend, straightened three deep and was getting going late when the race was all but over while shifting out under pressure in a pleasing debut effort. Athena Baby swung the final bend widest out and only kept on one-paced over the final 200m. Early favourite Secret Agent yielded ground 200m out after working hard from a tricky gate to sit outside the leader Hard Ball Get, who was giving way 150m out after finding the front from gate 14.
