VOYAGE STAR and GO FOR TEA both began awkwardly.
HANG’S DECISION shifted in at the start and bumped SUPER MISSION which was crowded for room outside LIFELINE VISION.
NAMJONG CORTEZ shifted in at the start and bumped A A AGILITY. After this, A A AGILITY was shifted across behind runners.
Shortly after the start, RUNNING GLORY shifted out and raced tight inside LIFELINE VISION.
Despite being vigorously ridden along in the early stages, VOYAGE STAR took some time to muster speed.
At the entrance to the Straight, GOOD RUNNER was positioned close to the heels of ISLAND SURPRISE when held up for clear running and then passing the 400 Metres GOOD RUNNER was directed to the outside of FIRE BALL to obtain clear running.
VUKAN was badly held up for clear running from passing the 300 Metres until after the 200 Metres.
HANG’S DECISION was unable to obtain clear running over the final 200 Metres and because of this was not able to be tested.
In the Straight, AMIGOS GIGGLE hung out under pressure.
Throughout the race, FIRE BALL travelled wide and without cover.
A veterinary inspection of VOYAGE STAR immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer” which had previously been reported.
GOOD RUNNER, RUNNING GLORY and LIFELINE VISION were sent for sampling.
