Rising Glory stole the show when turning last night's second event into a procession from the 200-metre marker - but there were a heap of good runs in behind. The public made Quick Money, from the powerful Ivan Allan stable, the 2.7-1 favourite despite the fact that the son of Military Plume had done little work and was racing at Happy Valley for the first time. Given his light preparation he ran well for fourth and should improve considerably for the outing. Similarly the David Hayes-trained Wonderful Winners, who stayed on strongly just behind the placegetters. He's looking for a mile and will be significantly fitter for the outing. Lekker, now with the promising second-season handler Ricky Yiu, disputed the lead with the very fit Cheerful who was primed for this run. The blowout will also have done Lekker the power of good while Word From Rome was noted staying on pleasingly. Word from Rome has dropped down to a reasonable mark of 41 towards the bottom of Class Four and should figure when pushed up to a mile or farther.
