Recap by phillip woo

The ultra-consistent Utopia Life kept finding after getting away with slow sections in front for a narrow win. It was a deserving second win on the surface but he'll likely find things harder in Class Two. Enshrined just failed to get up after a box-seat run. He took advantage of a better gate after going all right in his past two from outside draws. Raging favourite Sky Show was under the pump before the final bend but still kept on well after stalking the speed to finish a very close third. It was a pleasing effort up in class in his first go on the surface. California Argent only held his ground following a one-out, one-back run to finish a distant fourth. He's just not quite good enough at this level. Winning For All made some ground from behind midfield. It wasn't a bad effort on debut. Good For You ran on without menacing after his usual patient ride third from the back.

Racing Incident Report

After this, GOOD FOR YOU was steadied to obtain cover.

Approaching the 100 Metres, ENSHRINED raced tight outside UTOPIA LIFE.
