Recap by phillip woo

Outsider Celestial Power came on strongly racing one off behind midfield to take control 150m out. He relished a step up to a mile after finding the line reasonably well in two other starts. Punted late Kyrus Unicorn stayed on well for second after being held up for a run until the 200m following a rail run in midfield. He had flashed potential in a couple earlier runs in Class Two. Firming favourite Romantic Combo got up a non-threatening third after a wide with cover run better than midfield from a wide gate. He can bob up at any moment. Sacred Ibis ran on late to fill the frame after showing no speed early on. It was a positive performance after a November defeat with blood in his trachea. Uncle Steve ran on all right after ducking underneath runners for a clear run at the 200m following a patient ride fifth from the back. He's not far off a winning run. Telecom Fighters came up one-paced over the last 100m after a handy run. He's still acclimatising.
