Recap by phillip woo

After moving to the front 100m out following a prominent run, favourite Hearty Wish kept on gamely for a maiden win at his 14th start. He made full use of gate three after knocking on the door with placings from wide gates in his past two starts. Zacian dashed late down the outside to just pip Le Plus Vite for second after a patient ride third last from an outside draw. He's honest but has trouble winning at this level. Le Plus Vite stayed on well to make it close on the wire after a rails run worse than midfield. It was his best run from seven starts at his second start in the grade. Sunshine Legendary ran on steadily from behind midfield to fill the frame. It was a vastly improved effort following a downgrade. Punted late, Handsome Guys came on nicely along the fence after fading back to last from gate 12. He is not far off a winning run. Cigar Buddies was stopping 100m out after getting pressured for the lead to his outside by U W Brother. He's found it hard carrying big weights in his three starts this term.
