Recap by phillip woo

Viva Guy followed the lead of Glorious Victory to circle the field from beyond midfield 900m out to sit outside the leader Just Pleasant at the 650m, advanced to the front with two wider out at the 100m and kept on gamely to chalk one up for the old-timers. Keen Tactics settled near the inside in midfield, straightened three deep and closed off well to just edge out Mizzen Grey by a whisker for second. Mizzen Grey enjoyed a lovely run on the back of the speed near the fence, eased out four deep upon straightening and stayed on well to battle out the minors. Favourite Oxford Charley had only two beaten rounding the final bend four from the right, ducked underneath runners for a clear run at the 200m and ran on steadily thereafter to snatch fourth on the wire. Glorious Victory came from last to sit one off behind the leaders 800m out, swung the final bend widest out and kept grinding away to just miss a Quartet spot. Just Pleasant only succumbed 100m out in an improved run on the speed with cheek pieces. Sweet Bean had no excuse following a handy run with cover.
