Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Triumphant Dragon was given a lovely ride to land a spot one-out, one-back from a wide gate, rounded the final bend five deep and quickened nicely to get up 150m out for a fourth win at both courses this term. Indigo Way settled second from rear and deep with cover, swung the final bend widest out and nailed Spirit Soaring for the Quinella spot. Spirit Soaring was pestered for the lead by Better Announce to his outside after leading from gate nine, straightened a length clear and grudgingly gave way when headed. One Of A Kind settled deep with cover in midfield, turned the final bend with one wider out and just outfinished Navel Orange for a First-4 spot. Navel Orange dropped to the fence at the back from a wide gate, pushed into the open with two wider out and got going late. Oxford Charley travelled third from the rear and one off the rails, stayed near the inside and made some ground late. Master Viking was handy in the run along the rails, stayed to the paint and was stopping 150m out in a disappointing run as the firming second favourite. Superking Dragon never let down after making his run fourth from the rear and deep with cover ahead of runner-up Indigo Way.
