Recap by phillip woo

California Rad won eased down after hitting the front near the 200m following a pacestalking run. He's really come into his own for three wins and a second following a gear change to blinkers. Shamport closed well from midfield to finish a clear-cut second. He's run well in defeat three times following a rise in class. Loriz wouldn't go down without a fight after finding the front 1,000m out from gate 10. It was a pleasing first effort in the grade. Favourite Compassion Spirit just failed to place after a rail run behind midfield. Like the latter, it wasn't a bad first go in the grade following back-to-back wins. Telecom Puma only plodded after a dream run in the box-seat. He's struggling to recapture the form that earned him a win in September. Cue The Music couldn't lift when asked for an effort following a one-out, one-back. Beauty Spark ran on without menacing after settling one from the back. He gave them too much of a head start.

CUE THE MUSIC and VICTORY IN HAND bumped at the start.

VICTORY IN HAND then shifted out, resulting in COMPASSION SPIRIT being taken out and becoming badly unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by STAY CHILL which was checked when crowded for room inside BEAUTY SPARK which shifted in despite the efforts of its rider.

In this incident, VICTORY IN HAND also became unbalanced after bumping with COMPASSION SPIRIT.

JOLLY GOOD HEART shifted in abruptly at the start and bumped KEEP YOU WARM which became unbalanced, shifted in and made contact with the hindquarters of LORIZ, causing that horse to become unbalanced.

From wide barriers, PING HAI GALAXY and JOLLY GOOD HEART were steadied and shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1100 Metres, VICTORY IN HAND got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of CUE THE MUSIC.

For some distance after the 1100 Metres, JOLLY GOOD HEART proved very difficult to settle when being steadied to obtain cover.

Near the 1050 Metres, BEAUTY SPARK momentarily raced in restricted room between STAY CHILL which was awkwardly placed outside COMPASSION SPIRIT and PING HAI GALAXY which shifted in marginally.

Approaching the 900 Metres, JOLLY GOOD HEART shifted in abruptly when continuing to prove very difficult to settle.

After the 850 Metres, KEEP YOU WARM travelled wide and without cover.

Passing the 850 Metres, PING HAI GALAXY raced tight outside COMPASSION SPIRIT which shifted out.
