Recap by phillip woo

Special M finished strongly to get up in deep stretch for the win after switching off heels for a clear run 200m out following a one-off run better than midfield. He's come into his own in his past few starts and remains perfect in two course-and-distance runs. Favourite Stoltz just held on by a lip for second after surging to the front 150m out following a speed-chasing run. He's caught the eye in both starts and will be saluting shortly. Newcomer Gold Marquis couldn't keep a straight line but finished strongly down the far outside to finish a very close third after a three-wide run with cover behind midfield. He appears to have a bright future after winning once each at 1,200m and 1,400m from three starts in New Zealand. Be Ready ran on steadily after a rails run beyond midfield to fill the frame. He's in the right grade but is best suited over the Valley 1,200m. Harmony Fire just held his ground when asked for an effort after a handy run along the fence. The big weight likely took its toll on this occasion despite a return to the level of three past wins. Heart Conquered wasn't too far off the finish in the end after a prominent run without cover the entire trip from a tricky gate. He had an excuse.
