Recap by phillip woo

Sensationally-backed Plikclone fought off Blazing Partners after hitting the front 200m out following a wide with cover run worse than midfield to score a maiden win at his 11th start. Blazing Partners came out of a jam passing the 300m following a rail run better than midfield to make it a thrilling battle over the last 100m. He was unlucky last start and again here. One Step Ahead came with a ducking-and-weaving run from towards the rear to place at massive odds. It was clearly his best run to date but did get a race run to suit. Yes We Can ran on nicely to fill the frame after a patient ride second from the rear. He proved an improved run in July was not a fluke. Lucky Guy made some ground without menacing following a rail run in midfield. It wasn't a bad effort carrying top weight. Early favourite Master Galaxy was stopping 150m out after leading one off the fence at a genuine tempo outside Laos Enlightenment from a middle draw. He had an excuse.
