Recap by phillip woo

Simply Fluke showed a good turn of foot to come from last to take control 30m out for back-to-back wins. He was suited by the pace but the penny has suddenly dropped for him in recent runs at this level. The Runner nearly defied a wide run with cover better than midfield to salute after hitting the front 100m out. He continues to race well despite bad draws. Classic Posh ran on well from behind midfield to fill a placing. It was another solid effort carrying more weight following a last-start win. Majestic Star just won a battle for fourth after getting held up early straight following a prominent run. It was a better effort after an unacceptable performance last start. Harmony N Home ran on steadily after a rails run in midfield to just miss a first four spot. It wasn't a bad effort. California Concord came up flat 100m out after moving to a share of the lead 200m out following a pace-stalking run from a wide draw. He needs to draw a better gate. Early favourite Equaletta Blitz faded badly after going forward three deep to challenge for the lead carrying top weight. Post-time favourite Compassion Spirit only beat a few from towards the rear. He's gone off the ball in his past three starts.

He added after the race EQUALETTA BLITZ again did not feel comfortable in its action.
