Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed late Young Legend took control 60m out after enjoying a lovely run in the box-seat for a third win from 18 starts. It was a terrific training feat after a fetlock issue in November. Ping Hai Galaxy came home well for second after making his run one-out, one-back. It was a good result after coming out of a trial last month lame and it appears that he has the tools to build on a win two back over this trip. Favourite Diamond Brilliant was hustled to the front, cornered two lengths on top and was on his tippy toes 50m out. He's building towards a win. Good For You made a steady bid from midfield but didn't beat much to take fourth. He's better suited in Class Four. Punted late Beauty Amigo was yielding ground 150m out to finish a distant fifth stalking the speed from a wide gate. He does appear from his past two starts to be turning the corner. Jumbo Happiness ran on without menacing after a deep run with cover behind midfield.
