Recap by phillip woo

Co-favourite King's Trooper finished nicely after saving ground in midfield following a troubled start to take control 100m out for a first win at his fifth start. Equal-favourite Gift Of Lifeline came from a detached spot early on to just run down Confucius Day by a lip for second. It was a huge run in defeat and he'll be winning shortly. Confucius Day took the lead pressing the pace from Smart Of Youth at the 250m and kept on gamely for a placing. Generous Heart finished well to fill the frame after travelling fourth from the back. He's near a bottom. Punted late Lightning Steed came up one-paced following a boxseat run. He rarely produces a bad run but has trouble winning. Thou Shall Sing wasn't in his usual spot up front but did run on nicely after settling third from the back from an awkward gate. Newcomer Smart Of Youth was coming back to the field 150m out after showing good gate speed to lead from gate seven. He'll need more experience.
