Recap by phillip woo

Regency Gem came from last and widest out at the head of the straight after a sluggish start to snatch victory on the wire from Masterwork. He's always a chance at this level and was able back up a positive effort on the dirt on Wednesday. Well-backed Masterwork gave a very cheeky sight on the speed to nearly steal the race in his first run since October. It was his best run to date at just his eighth start. Valiant Elegance kept on reasonably well for a placing after working forward to chase the leader 850m out. It was another good effort following a midweek third on the same surface. Tigerlad kept on gamely for fourth after chasing the speed three-deep without cover from a wide gate. He remains to be competitive on both surfaces following a victory three runs back. Yee Cheong Lucky wasn't far off hitting the frame following a rail run behind midfield. He might not be far off a bottom. Favourite Golden Mission tamely faded after a wide with cover run better than midfield from a wide gate. He didn't seem to appreciate the kick back with a return to the dirt. Lucky Victor came up flat 100m out after a handy run. He has been a disappointment but it was a shade better run.

After the race, J Moreira stated that GOLDEN MISSION did not travel strongly at any stage of the race and felt "flat?? A veterinary inspection of GOLDEN MISSION immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Passing the 350 Metres, DASHING GRACE was shifted out away from the heels of GOLDEN MISSION which was giving ground.

After the race, A Badel was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of SUPREME PATROL which he said that after travelling well then failed to finish off the race.
