Recap by phillip woo

Voyage Bubble took closer order three wide to sit around midfield coming to the final bend, responded to put his head in front 150m out and kept finding to just hold off Tuchel for the win. Tuchel made it close on the wire from the box seat. It was another honest performance despite a rise in trip. Favourite Beauty Eternal found a couple just too good after hitting the front 200m out following a prominent run. Keefy kept on well for fourth after setting a slow pace in front. It was a surprise performance. Straight Arron ran on nicely near the inside from behind midfield. He was at the mercy of a slow pace. Sword Point kept on one-paced after being short of room for a good part of the straight tracking Beauty Eternal from midfield. Sweet Encounter plugged on evenly after switching inside for a clear run near the 200m following a rails run from midfield. Super Sunny Sing produced a grinding effort after tracking the winner into the race three deep from behind midfield 800m out. He didn't get the race run to suit.

KEEFY and SWORD POINT bumped at the start.

From wide barriers, ATULLIBIGEAL and FLAGSHIP WARRIOR were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

In the early stages, SUPER SUNNY SING raced wide and without cover and was inclined to race keenly.

Then near the 1400 Metres, SUPER SUNNY SING got its head up when being shifted in to obtain cover behind GALAXY WITNESS.

Near the 1000 Metres, FLAGSHIP WARRIOR, which was racing keenly, was steadied when it improved to the inside of BEAUTYVERSE.

Approaching the 300 Metres, TUCHEL was shifted to the inside of KEEFY to continue into clear running.

Over the concluding stages, SWEET ENCOUNTER could not be ridden out when positioned close to KEEFY when that runner raced tight to the inside of BEAUTY ETERNAL which was taken in by VOYAGE BUBBLE.

Prior to the declaration of weighed-in, the Stewards viewed the patrol films to ascertain if there were grounds for a protest/objection against VOYAGE BUBBLE being declared the winner on behalf of the 3rd placegetter, BEAUTY ETERNAL, following VOYAGE BUBBLE shifting in and bumping BEAUTY ETERNAL near the 50 Metres and BEAUTY ETERNAL racing tight to the inside of VOYAGE BUBBLE over the concluding stages.

When no protest/objection was lodged by the connections and the Stewards were satisfied that there were not sufficient grounds, weighed-in was declared on the numbers semaphored by the Judge.

A Badel reported that in order to ensure that VOYAGE BUBBLE ran a strong 2000 Metres, he was instructed to ride his mount conservatively from its outside barrier.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of H Bowman (SWORD POINT), 6th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horse's finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ensure that he fully rides his mounts out to the finish of the race.

When questioned, H Bowman stated that after following the favourite BEAUTY ETERNAL into the Home Straight, between the 400 Metres and the 300 Metres, he had some difficulty obtaining clear running when BEAUTY ETERNAL did not quicken as he had expected.

He added that as he was placed inside the heels of VOYAGE BUBBLE during that section of the race, he was unable to shift out to obtain clear running and therefore was obliged to remain racing behind BEAUTY ETERNAL.

He further added however once he was able to commence riding SWORD POINT along near the 300 Metres, his mount finished the race off in a one-paced manner to the line.

After the race, C Y Ho (SUPER SUNNY SING) reported that whilst his mount was inclined to race keenly in the moderately run event, he did not believe this was the reason for the disappointing performance of SUPER SUNNY SING.

He added that from the 600 Metres SUPER SUNNY SING was under pressure and did not respond to his riding from that point and finished the race off only fairly.
