The Fixer flew to the front from post 7 while pylon-starter Sicario secured the pocket to a :28 opening quarter. Majestic Brayden angled first over from third moving to a :58.1 half with Ole Jack Magic tracking cover from second over and In Secret racing third over.

Up the backside as Majestic Braydon drew alongside The Fixer, driver Jonathan Drury launched In Secret three wide and gobbled ground to three-quarters in 1:27.2 before sweeping to the lead into the final turn.
