Recap by phillip woo

Idyllic Wind enjoyed a lovely run in the box seat from gate two, came two off upon straightening and took control 150m out. Well-punted late, Optimism had a good run three deep after travelling fourth from the rear early on to easily take second with a key drop into Class Five. He will be better suited over 1,200m. Winning Advantage settled third from the rear, swung the final bend five deep and closed off well to inject value into the tierce. Bornfree travelled second from the rear after a sluggish break and finished nicely with one wider out to just miss a placing. King On Earth got going late near the inside after making his run at the tail of the field. Favourite Always Wonderful settled one out, one back, cornered six deep and peaked on his run 100m out. King Tai Sing was never better than four deep without cover behind midfield and kept on alright with one wider out despite the hard run. He's one to keep safe from a good gate. Dark Core and Namjong Surprise faded badly over the final 150m after travelling one-two on the speed.
