Recap by phillip woo

Holy Unicorn hit the front 250m out after a no-cover run better than midfield the entire trip and kept on nicely to ring up a fourth win from five starts this term. Jimmy Ting's done a superb job to turn his career around and he appears to have more upside to come. Good Fit came from near last to grab second in the dying stages. He's racing very well this term. Enfolding stayed on well for third after a deep run with cover in midfield. He was suited by the downgrade and switch to the dirt. Art Of Raw moved to third from behind midfield on the fence at the 150m before coming up one-paced 50m out. He's a hard one to get right. Quick Return seemed to peak on his run 100m out with two wider out in the drive following a one-off run beyond midfield. He's yet to salute in 24 starts but is getting down to a dangerous mark. Radiant Bunny ran on all right without menacing from the rear of the field. He's one to keep safe from a better draw.
