Recap by phillip woo

Rule Thee just held off the favourite Bigwood by a whisker after hitting the front 150 out following a midfield run. He had put the writing on the wall in two prior starts and enjoyed the step up to 1,800m. Bigwood just failed to get up following a handy run. He's proving quite versatile and had more upside to come. Tianchi Monster stuck on well for a placing following a box-seat run in a positive first run over this course and distance. Namjong Plus got going late near the outside after having to avoid the stopping Happy Spirit 700m out travelling fourth from the rear. Helene Charisma was badly held up and never properly tested in the stretch drive with his run from near last. Dynamic Eagle wasn't too far away in the end after being forced to show his cards to test the leaders at the 800m following a deep run early on in midfield. Cheerful Giggles was impeded badly at the 700m by Happy Spirit who was stopping badly and can be forgiven for the run.
