Recap by phillip woo

Gold Talent was given every chance fifth along the rails, rallied five deep upon straightening and finished well to collar Speedy Longwah at the post for a third win this campaign. Speedy Longwah worked to lead from gate nine through genuine fractions, was headed 600m out, reclaimed the front 100m out and was nipped on the wire in a much-improved run. Go Go Win was ridden along from a wide gate to land a one-off spot in second, advanced to the front 600m out, cornered two lengths on top and grudgingly gave way late. Best Hope plugged away to give the Quartet some value following a box-seat run. Owners' Glory settled worse than midfield along the rails, pushed into the open six deep soon after straightening and was only one-paced over the final 150m. Favourite Mr Vanilla settled one off the fence beyond midfield, rounded the final bend four from the right and made some ground without menacing with a return to Class Four. Twin Turbo had every chance after a one-off run in fourth. Winning Premium did not do much after travelling second last along the rails. Spinning Dancer was deep near the back and never let down with one wider out. Sure Peace was caught without cover from a tricky gate and was struggling 200m out.
