Recap by phillip woo

Gift Of Lifeline quickened nicely to overhaul Very Sweet Orange despite losing ground travelling midfield after clipping the heels of Flying Monkey 500m out for a maiden win at his fourth start. Very Sweet Orange established a good margin rounding the final bend leading on his own from gate one but couldn't hold the winner. He was given every chance off a feather weight. Punted late The Createth came on well near the inside after settling fourth from the back to just edge Le Terroir for third. He'll be a force to be reckoned with if he can draw a proper gate. Le Terroir finished very well near the outside to make it close for the last place position setting last from a wide gate. Jolly Bountiful ran on without menacing from behind midfield. He had a big weight and prefers a firmer surface. Wonderful Journey came up one-paced following a prominent run. The big weight was his undoing but is in the right grade again.
