Recap by phillip woo

Punted late Lotus Strikes Back was given a gem of a ride saving ground in midfield, pulled out coming to the final bend and let down well to run down Willie Way 130m out for a first win at his 10th start this term. He had fallen to a competitive mark off a lighter weight but will likely find it harder when next stepping out in the middle of the grade. Willie Way circled the field to lead 770m out and wouldn't go down without a fight in a return to form after disappointing three times following two Class Four wins. The rise in trip suited him. Odds-on favourite Mambo Rock finished well despite a chequered passage after travelling five back along the fence. He lost no admirers in defeat. General Sherman closed off well from behind midfield to fill a Quartet spot. The big weight continues to be a hurdle after a win four runs back. Cloud Nine kept on all right following a box-seat run. He hasn't disappointed but continues to find a few too smart at this level. Happy Rocky made good ground following a four back run along the fence. Veteran's starting to find some form again and can pop up at any time over the 1,800m or further at either track.
