Sling Shock (Dan Noble) and Gulf Shores swapped the lead early lead, but it was a quarter-pole move by the eventual winner that proved to be the winning one.
The son of Downbytheseaside cruised to a two-length win over his rival and Vintage Cowboy (Matt Kakaley).
Gulf Shores, a Brian Brown trainee, won for the sixth straight time for Country Club Acres, Diamond Creek Racing and Wingfield Brothers.
