Recap by phillip woo

Hall Of Champ rallied nicely to get up in the final few strides after travelling no better than three and four deep towards the rear for the most part from a wide gate. The key was a return to Class Four. Super Mission found one just too good after hitting the front 350m out chasing the speed without cover from the widest gate. He has been knocking on the door and can break through at any moment. Newcomer Big Two stayed on well to finish a distant third after a deep run better than midfield from a wide draw. It was an encouraging effort and he'll certainly come on for this run. City Legend ran on well to fill the frame after switching into the open 350m out following a one off run worse than midfield. It was another solid performance after back-to-back wins. Ernest Feeling wasn't beaten too far in the end after a tactics change to share the lead one off the fence from a wide draw. It was another positive performance. Red Brick Fighter held his ground travelling one off better than midfield. He does appear from his past few runs to be on his mark.
