Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late to jump favourite, Noble Desire kept on gamely after jumping alertly from gate four to ring up a second win from his past three starts. He had been in good form all season long. Punted late, Beauty Cheers stayed on well to grab second 150m out following a prominent run along the fence. He had every chance but it was a better effort on his past couple of well-fancied runs. Early favourite Telecom Rocket ran on steadily to fill a placing after biding his time worse than midfield on the fence. It was another honest performance. Chiron filled the frame but peaked on his move from towards the rear 50m out after a sluggish start. He's naturally coming to hand in his three starts but expect him to show his true colours next season. Flaming Passion made up plenty of ground late near the inside after settling last from the widest gate. He's clearly shown ability in his six starts and can bob up at any moment. Baltic Whisper came up flat over the last 100m after stalking the winner one off the fence. He's still searching for a bottom. Good Shot ran on without menacing settling behind midfield from an awkward gate. He's disappointed in his past three starts after ringing up seconds in two of three earlier runs.
