Tauranga was very fractious at the start, losing several lengths by commencing slowly. Crow's Nest made the early running from Blair Royal, Bachelor's Art and Herring Gull. After half a mile Blair Royal joined the early leader, drawing to the front a furlong later. Although Herring Gull mounted a challenge approaching the distance, Blair Royal repelled it with ease, winning by 3 lengths, with two lengths between Herring Gull and Bachelor's Art.
