Recap by phillip woo

Aquila was still plenty green but edged clear at the 200m after stalking the leader Best Smile one off the fence from a wide gate for a maiden win at his third start and first under leading rider Zac Purton. He had no trouble handling the Valley bends and there's more improvement to come. Best Smile kept on well for second after driving to the lead from an inside gate in a promising debut. Favourite Look Eras kept plugging away to fill a placing following a box-seat run after jumping a tad slow. He's as honest as the day is long but has had trouble winning. Aurora Pegasus ran on all right after saving ground in midfield. He's still a work in progress but is crying out for a longer trip. Flying Monkey made some ground late without menacing from behind midfield. He can produce an odd good run now and then. Red Brick Fighter got going from near last to finish mid-pack. It was a better effort with a switch to the Valley but he requires more time and experience.
