Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Diamond Brilliant overhauled long-time leader Whiskey Neat 250m out for the win following a pace-stalking run. It's just his second win from 25 starts but he's always a chance at this level and goes very well for Zac Purton. Whiskey Neat wouldn't go down without a fight after clearing to the front 1,000m out from an awkward gate. It was another fine effort without saluting this season. So Awesome ran on steadily following a rails run better than midfield to fill a placing. He's as honest as the day is long without winning. Sparkling Star ran on very well to fill the frame after his usual spot towards the rear. It was a good effort in his first start following a bleeding attack in September. Touch Faith came up one-paced over the final 150m following a box-seat run. He had his chance but was only having his second ever start. Iron King made headway late after biding his time three deep second from the rear. He'll need to draw a better gate to be competitive at this level. Vigor Champ came up one-paced after slotting one off in midfield from a wide draw. He's likely on or near his mark following a win two runs back.

Passing the 800 Metres, SO AWESOME was checked away from the heels of TOUCH FAITH.

Near the 250 Metres, SO AWESOME was shifted out away from the heels of TOUCH FAITH which shifted out under pressure.

SPARKLING STAR, which was following SO AWESOME, was shifted to the inside of that horse passing the 200 Metres to continue improving.

DIAMOND BRILLIANT and WHISKEY NEAT were sent for sampling.
