Recap by phillip woo

Dragon Dance led and never looked back following a stable change. It was a strong win and he might be able to step up off a light weight in a higher grade. Well-backed late, Sports Master closed well to easily grab second after settling worse than midfield from a wide gate. It was a solid effort stepping back in distance but prefer him over a longer trip. Punted late Perfect Choice ran on steadily along the inside to finish a clear-cut third. He's shown improvement following a downgrade in both outings this term. Favourite Actuariat just got the bob down for fourth over Happy Sound following a handy run one off the fence. Happy Sound left things too late after settling third last from a wide gate. He's capable but not reliable. Richcity Fortune had little left in the drive after covering ground near the speed from a tricky gate. He had excuses. Raichu had every chance following a prominent run. He's better suited over the 1,200m.

Before being allowed to race again, VICTOR EMPEROR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

HAPPY SOUND began awkwardly and then, despite being ridden along for a considerable distance in the early stages, failed to muster speed.

FIRST BEAUT and RICHCITY FORTUNE bumped at the start.

A short distance after the start, PERFECT CHOICE shifted out and bumped FIRST BEAUT, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

From the outside barrier, COUR VALANT was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the first turn after the 600 Metres, COUR VALANT got its head on the side and lay out badly.

Approaching and passing the 200 Metres, ACTUARIAT was awkwardly placed outside the heels of RAICHU which shifted out marginally under pressure.

Throughout the race, RICHCITY FORTUNE travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of RAICHU and FIRST BEAUT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ACTUARIAT, DRAGON DANCE and SPORTS MASTER were sent for sampling.
