Recap by phillip woo

Drifting in the betting, Sweet Bean came from last with a move at the 650m to win going away at the 200m to ring up an eighth career win in Class Five. The pace was genuine and he had been knocking on the door in his past two starts. Enjoyable Success came from midfield to just grab second from Jin Jin King. He relished a return to the dirt and step-up in distance. Punted late, Jin Jin King kept on gamely after dictating the run. He was suited by the downgrade. Little Fantasy stayed on reasonably well after slotting one-out one-back from a tricky gate to just hold a Quartet spot. He had been racing honestly on both surfaces without winning. Travel Ambassador came from near last down the outside to just miss fourth. He's a winner waiting to happen at this level and just needs a better gate. Dragon Warrior disappointed yet again following a prominent run on the fence. Favourite Lucky Shiny Day never fired travelling one-off in midfield.

MI BLANCO began only fairly.

From a wide barrier, SWEET BEAN was then shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

From a wide barrier, TRAVEL AMBASSADOR was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, MASTER BERNINI, which was being ridden along, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CORRE RAPIDO which was being steadied to obtain cover behind LITTLE FANTASY.

Making the turn after passing the winning post on the first occasion, ENJOYABLE SUCCESS raced tight inside LUCKY SHINY DAY which got its head on the side and lay in.

A short distance after this, ENJOYABLE SUCCESS and LUCKY SHINY DAY raced tight inside CORRE RAPIDO which shifted in before being directed out abruptly to relieve the tightening to both horses.

After the 1400 Metres, MI BLANCO momentarily raced in restricted room between GORGEOUS AGAIN and MASTER BERNINI which shifted in before being shifted back out to relieve the tightening to MI BLANCO.

COURT RULER travelled wide and without cover until passing the 1100 Metres at which time the horse was able to shift in to race outside the lead.

Near the 1000 Metres, MASTER BERNINI was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 800 Metres, MI BLANCO got its head on the side and shifted in of its own accord, resulting in the horse being awkwardly placed outside the heels of GORGEOUS AGAIN.

Passing the 450 Metres, DRAGON WARRIOR raced tight inside PENZANCE which, after initially shifting to the outside of JIN JIN KING, then commenced to lay in.

Passing the 300 Metres, ENJOYABLE SUCCESS was shifted to the inside of LITTLE FANTASY after being disappointed for running between that horse and CORRE RAPIDO.
