Recap by phillip woo

Firming to jump odds-on, Mighty Giant won eased down after rolling to the front 300m out following a pace-stalking run from gate 14 for a second win from five starts. My Winner made up heaps of ground late down the outside to snatch second after badly missing the kick. He's always capable of big runs but is his own worst enemy. Super Winner kept on very well to nearly hold the Quinella spot after setting a genuine pace in front. He's building towards a win. Happy Warrior just finished out of the placings after being cast deep without cover in midfield for the most part. Lasting Friendship made up a good deal of ground late after a patient ride third from the back. It was a return to form. Star Majestic ran on without menacing from behind midfield. The old-timer beyond his better days and he'll likely need to drop lower in the handicaps to improve his chances. Golden Four kept on rather one-paced travelling behind midfield and one-off the fence.
