Symbolize brought the field into the straight, to be challenged by Ecurie, who went into a clear lead more than 400m out. Jungle Rock was the first to emerge from the pack, but Model Man was in full flight and gaining ground fast. Ecurie was still in front with a furlong to go, but had no answer when challenged by Model Man,  who won by a widening ¾ length.  Jungle Rock's effort spluttered a little in the closing stages, but he was good enough to hold third from a fast-finishing Uncle Percy.
