Kid Kapone led the field from the jump up until the final turn before Adaptor surged to the lead. But it was mare Show Bling with jockey Damien Oliver who caught Adaptor at the line. A photo was needed with the nod going to Show Bling by just from 0.1 of a length from Adaptor. A photo was also needed to determine third place, with Cavendish eventually scoring the place by 0.1 of a length from Can Do in fourth.
The win tonight is the third in a row now for 4-year-old mare Show Bling, trained by Mick Price, who has won of 4 races from 18 career starts.
