Almandin Horseform Rising ten-year-old Who Shot Thebarman Horseform scored a welldeserved win in this race after finishing second twice previously. He settled back in 13th place in the large field, tracking a solid tempo before Blake Shinn moved him up (wide with cover) approaching the 600m. He put in his run, wide out, rounding the home turn, got to fourth at the 200m and finished gamely to grab victory on the post.

New Zealandtrained stayer Zacada Horseform settled beyond midfield, got along the inner rounding the home turn and, after getting a great rails run, took the lead at the 200m only to be caught in the last few strides for second, beaten a nose.

Another New Zealand-trained stayer Sir Charles Road Horseform raced ninth place, got along the rails coming to the home turn, briefly got to the front at the 300m and then fought on nicely under his limit weight (50kg) for third.

Auvray Horseform had a good trip in eighth place on the rails, improved well (between runners) coming to the home turn, went to fourth at the 200m and battled on to hold that position, beaten just over a length.

The favourite Almandin Horseform raced back in 12th place, improved (wide with cover) nearing the 600m but then just kept battling on under his top weight (57kg) for eighth, beaten just over five lengths.
