Recap by phillip woo

In a race for the sweepers, roughie Chaparral Star came on strongly one from the right travelling second last to nail Ambitious Speedy in the last stride for the win. The step up in distance and return to the turf at his second start in the grade was the key to victory. Ambitious Speedy had travelled a position ahead of the winner in the run, poked his head in front 20m out and was nipped late. He rarely produces a bad run in this grade. Post-time favourite Superior Boy found a couple just too good after weaving a run near the inside following a rail-hugging run behind midfield. It's only a matter of time before he strikes in this class. Rochford was swamped late after giving a good sight in front rushing forward from an outside gate. On the back of his three starts on both surfaces, there appears a win in him in this grade. Early favourite Newswire Free was short of room late after recovering from a sluggish break to sit worse than midfield on the fence.
