Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Country Star kept up a strong gallop after hitting the front 200m out chasing one-off in second to chalk up a remarkable fifth win over this course from eight starts this term. There's likely more improvement to come from the three-year-old. Telecom Brothers stayed on nicely to finish a close second following a dream run. He's taken the next step with a solid result at his second run in the class. Punted late, Super Hoppy finished strongly down the outside after a patient ride third from the rear to nearly grab second. He really gets along under Zac Purton. Almababy stayed on well following a prominent run to add some value to the Quartet. He has been racing well over this course and distance this term. Fabulous One gradually faded after being headed for the lead at the 200m. It wasn't a bad run but he's still trying to find his mark. Super Turbo made some ground late from the back without menacing. The big weight anchored him.
