Recap by phillip woo

Aerovelocity dashed to the front 100m out after a prominent run and just held off the favourite Lucky Bubbles to reclaim his title as the top sprinter. It was a terrific feat by Paul O'Sullivan to get the eight-year-old back to his best and he'll remain a key player in the upcoming majors anywhere. Lucky Bubbles got further back than expected when having to steady approaching the 800m but still closed furiously when peeling into the open 300m out to make it a thriller on the wire. He's definitely the future of sprinting. Defending champion Peniaphobia grudgingly gave way after dictating the run. It was a terrific run in defeat. Amazing Kids ran on nicely near the inside after travelling second from the rear. He'll remain competitive in the local sprints. Sings Of Blessing was the best of the overseas challengers with a good move late down the outside after settling last from a wide gate.
