Warm favourite and multiple Group winner Galaxy Star left it to the very last stride to get up by a nose here, taking her win tally to 13 (in 19 starts) and earnings of $1,546,000.
She was second last early on then down the back found herself last of five remaining runners (after Royal Strata lost her rider).

Jockey William Pike got busy from the 600m but she took an age to get interested and into the straight had plenty to do. Inside the 150m her chances looked hopeless but she accelerated quickly then stretched her neck right on the line.

Gatting sat second past the 1000m, moved up to take over entering the straight and looked the winner everywhere but on the line.

Cappo D'Oro was fourth (rails) turning in and kept up a solid run to the line for third from Great Shot who held fourth after leading them in to the straight
