Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed late, Kiram won a thrilling battle with Go Go Win after taking off at the 600m following a midfield run to poke his head in front at the 350m. He had been knocking on the door all season long and was given a terrific ride by Douglas Whyte. Go Go Win wouldn't go away without a fight after rushing forward to lead from a wide gate. He's always a chance in this grade. Fancied late in betting, Victory Follow Me stayed on nicely following a box-seat run carrying a light weight to fill a placing. He had all the favours. Starlit Knight came on well following a midfield run on the fence to fill a Quartet spot. He appears to have gained some confidence following a brief but successful stint in Class Five. Photon Willie ran on without menacing from beyond midfield. He's in the right grade but prefers a faster ground. Favourite Heroic Guru left things much too late travelling last at one point following a sluggish break. He's capable but untrustworthy.
