Recap by phillip woo

Punted late Rule Thee finished nicely following a one-off run in midfield to just overhaul Rickfield for a first win at his 10th start. Rickfield found one too good after hitting the front 120m with a move from near the back at the 600m. He's a winner waiting to happen over the Valley 1,800m if he remains in this class. Early favourite Ensuring stuck on well following a handy run to make it a blanket finish on the wire. He's itching to breakthrough in his four outings this term but keeps finding one or a couple too good. Super Chic grudgingly gave way after dictating a steady tempo. He's run well for fourths in his past three on both surfaces but may be more effective over the 1,800m or 2,000m. Happy Contender ran on reasonably well after travelling third from the rear. Honest sort but has trouble winning. Goodheart Success kept on alright following a rail run fore of midfield in his first attempt over this trip.
