Recap by phillip woo

Glacier Blue defied a deep run without cover in midfield from a wide gate to hit the front six deep and fought off Danewin Express over the last 150m for the win. Danewin Express recovered to travel behind midfield after jumping away slowly, rounded the final bend with one wider out and finished nicely to make it close on the wire. He's run well in both outings this term and will be winning shortly. Imperial Gallantry settled near the back as usual, cornered three from the right and was hitting the line with purpose to make it a bob of heads for second. Plain Blue Banner ran on reasonably well with three wider out after travelling second from the rear to to snatch fourth near the wire. Motif rushed forward to sit outside the leader Bo Duke 700m out, assumed the lead 400m out and grudgingly gave way. Raging Bull tracked the leader near the inside and kept on one-paced over the final 200m. Favourite Happy Agility eased back to sit handy with cover, straightened five deep and never respond under the pump.
