Having his second start this preparation, after winning the Kilmore Cup (Listed, 1600m) in November, Manuel Horseform scored a surprise all-the-way win, his eighth win in 23 starts and his first at Group 1 level.

He had little trouble in finding the lead and Luke Currie was able to set a reasonable mid-race tempo before Manuel got a break on turning for home. He then held off all challengers to win well, with a half-length advantage at the post.

The favourite Kementari Horseform , who was resuming, raced in seventh place, one off the rails, moved up nearing the home turn, was in a challenging position at the 200m and kept fighting on to deadheat for second with Land Of Plenty Horseform who ran on well from eighth at the home turn in a good effort at his second run back.

Brave Smash Horseform was a handy fifth, one off the rails, challenged strongly at the 200m before battling on well for a close-up fourth, finishing just in front of Best Of Days Horseform who was sixth rounding the home turn and then held on well for fifth, beaten less than a length in a sound first-up effort.
