Recap by phillip woo

Waldorf showed a scintillating turn of foot to get up in the final few strides to overhaul favourite Highland Fortune following a patient ride second from the rear. He loves this trip and was suited by the good pace in front. Highland Fortune did everything right but get the win after hitting the front 100m out following a midfield run. He's really turned his career around following a switch to the Valley. Shining Ace fanned wide out than he probably would have liked at the top of the straight following a one-off run in midfield but still finished nicely to beat Winning Method for third. Winning Method closed well to just miss a placing after settling one-off behind midfield from a wide gate. He does appear to have room to head higher off his current mark. Punted late Victoriam ran on steadily to just finish out of the placings after a one-off run better than midfield. It was always going to be a harder test carrying more weight following a last-start win.
