Recap by phillip woo

It was a brilliant ride by Joao Moreira to quickly get Dancing Fighter settled one-out, one-back from a wide gate before taking control near the 200m to ring up a second straight win and third from six starts. He had the tools to win another in this grade. Newcomer Amazing Kiwi out-duelled favourite Joyful Union over the last 150m out for second after handing up the front to sit box-seat behind Island Shine. It was a very good debut run by Amazing Kiwi and he has room to climb higher off his mark of 69. Joyful Union came up one-paced over the final 100m after looming a chance following a rail run better than midfield. The big weight took its toll late. Buoyant Boy ran on steadily to fill the frame after recovering from a sluggish break to settle midfield on the fence 600m out. He's honest but has trouble saluting off his current mark. Punted late Namjong Sings kept on all right despite being cast without cover the entire trip fore of midfield.
