Recap by phillip woo

Fearless Fire produced a perfectly timed run to deny Turin Warrior after a rails run in midfield. He had been out of form but won on this card last year off a higher mark and appreciated the return to blinkers. Turin Warrior was just outdashed along the inside after a well-executed ride saw him find the fence behind midfield from gate 10. He's a winner waiting to happen with seconds in two of his past three starts. United Endeavors found a couple just too good after moving to the front 150m out following a prominent run one off the fence. It was a return to form at his fourth outing this term. Favourite Killer Instinct ran on late to fill the frame after biding his time fifth last. He continues to mix his distances without succeeding. Punted late, Kowloon Great ran on without threatening after settling second last from a wide draw. It was a typical performance. Happy Jai Jai came up flat when asked for more following a box-seat run. He couldn't build on a last-start placing. Lucky Missile made headway late down the outside after fading back to last from gate 12.
