Recap by phillip woo

Perfect Match held off Fast Most Furious for the win after clearing out to lead on the fence 1,000m out from a wide gate. He's won six of 11 starts, including five of six over this trip, and can head higher. Fast Most Furious finished nicely after a deep run with cover behind midfield. He's racing very well this season. It was a surprise return to form by Morethanlucky, who wouldn't go down without a fight after poking his head in front briefly 300m out following a wide and without cover run near the speed. Jolly Banner ran on well after making his run just underneath Fast Most Furious from a middle draw. Flying Thunder closed well widest out after being ridden for luck at the rear from a tricky gate. Both Good Standing and the late-plunged Hezthewonforus only plodded after perfect runs on the back of the speed. They are both trying to find the right mark again.
