Recap by phillip woo

The well-backed Glorious Artist just out-finished Preciousship over the final 100m after pushing into the open 300m out following a patient ride third from the rear to ring up a fifth career win over this course and distance. He has a terrific record under Zac Purton. Preciousship made it interesting at the finish after travelling four back on the fence. It was his best run in a while with a switch to the dirt. Hongkong Great grudgingly gave way after working hard to finally clear out into the lead from a wide gate 800m out. It was a huge run in defeat despite a rise in class and he'll be hard to beat from a better gate. Favourite Elusive State ran on to fill the frame without menacing the top three following a rails run ahead of midfield. The big weight anchored him following a win last start. Kings Shield kept plugging away to earn a minor cheque after easing out of a speed duel to chase the leader along the fence. He does appear to be on his mark. Punted late, Red Desert just held his ground following a prominent run. He's not a miler. Specked late, Californiadeepshot never let down after a one-off trip in midfield.
