Recap by phillip woo

Speedy King just held off Super Turbo for an upset win after hitting the front 150m out following a midfield run. Longshot Super Turbo might have gotten up for the win from the rear of the field if not having to switch off the erratic Yee Cheong Baby 50m out. He's certainly capable over this trip and did get a pace run to suit. Odds-on choice Yee Cheong Baby kept on for a placing but repeatedly wandered about under pressure after hitting the front 280m chasing the leader Speed Vision. He might have run a part of race in a huge trial win 12-days back and the big weight didn't help. Tornado Twist finished nicely to just miss a placing travelling fourth from the back. He'll certainly come on for this run. Waldorf closed well from near the back. He needed the run and appears to have room to move higher off his current mark. Cue The Music grudgingly gave way after a prominent run. He has made a good impression in his two starts.

Approaching the 600 Metres, WATER DIVINER (M Chadwick) raced tight inside SUPER TURBO which lay in.

After the race, M Chadwick stated that after this incident WATER DIVINER was reluctant to improve its position inside SUPER TURBO despite him riding his mount along.

He said he continued to ride WATER DIVINER along rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight and it was not until the latter stages of the race that WATER DIVINER commenced to close off the race.

Passing the 600 Metres, SPEEDY KING raced in restricted room inside STORM SIGNAL which got its head on the side and lay in when awkwardly placed behind LOVING A BOOM.
