Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed late Smiling Success had enough stamina to go all the way after quickly finding the front from gate 13 to open his win account at start nine. He put the writing on the wall following a downgrade last start. Early favourite Winwin Thirtythree couldn't catch the winner but kept on well to finish a clear-cut second after a prominent run without cover the entire trip from a tricky gate. Big Bully ran on well after making his run five back and one off the fence to grab second in deep stretch. Post-time favourite The Full Bloom ran on late near the inside but was always on his back after hopping in the air at the jump. He was well rated but keeps finding ways of beating himself. Humble Steed had every chance following a box-seat run. He's limited. Golden Cannon stayed on okay after a wide run without cover beyond midfield the entire trip. Blazing Partners made some ground down the outside after making his run second from the rear.
