Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed Happy Good Guys responded well to grab victory near the 500m after a dream run in the box-seat. The rise in trip and gear change worked the oracle after failing without excuses in two prior starts. Ares closed nicely to get the head down late for second after a deep run without cover behind midfield. Gunnar was on his tippy toes inside the last 100m after getting his own way in front. Amazing finished well near the inside to fill the frame after making his run second from the rear after breaking in the air from a wide gate. Regency Poet stayed on well from midfield to just miss a Quartet spot. He's shown some ability to place in two of his five starts but is still a work in progress. Old-timer The Show ran on without menacing from near the back. He prefers a faster pace. Favourite Victory Mastery never let down after making his run one-off behind midfield. The short break following a placing last week might have worked against him.
