Recap by phillip woo

Good Luck Win crossed to lead along the fence rounding the first bend, set a steady pace while corning in two lengths on top and kept finding to score a cozy win as a late-addition to the race after the withdrawal of Easy Ahead. Ray's Favourite sat on the back of the speed just off the rails in second, straightened two deep and kept on well to hold the runner-up spot as the firming public choice. Chancellor settled third or fourth along the inside, stayed to the fence upon straightening and kept on reasonably well for a placing in his first crack at Happy Valley and the mile. Hong Kong Fat settled fourth and one off in the run, worked to third approaching the final bend, cornered in three deep and whacked on one-paced to hold fourth. Perfect Joy settled in midfield and on the rails, peeled five wide upon straightening and made a steady bid late without threatening. Redoute's Fortune travelled midfield and one off the fence, rounded the final bend four deep and kept on evenly without ever menacing. Brilliant Chariot travelled behind midfield and one off the rails, straightened three deep under pressure and never did let down. Breeze Of Luck spotted them nearly four lengths at the break, was under the whip to stay in touch on a number of occasions and finished up tailed off in a disappointing performance.

BRILLIANT CHARIOT and REDOUTES FORTUNE were slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, HEI HEI POSH was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, REDOUTES FORTUNE raced tight between BRILLIANT CHARIOT and WAYFOONG GOVERNOR which itself was awkwardly placed inside the heels of PRIVATE ROAD.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, BEAUTIFUL SCENERY got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of WAYFOONG GOVERNOR.

Approaching the 1200 Metres, CHANCELLOR got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of RAYS FAVOURITE.

Near the 150 Metres, HONG KONG FAT was steadied away from the heels of CHANCELLOR (M Chadwick) which shifted out under pressure.

M Chadwick was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

In the Straight, HEI HEI POSH got its head on the side and hung out and passing the 100 Metres shifted out towards the heels of REDOUTES FORTUNE, resulting in its rider, T Angland, having to stop riding and straighten.

He said after the 1200 Metres BREEZE OF LUCK commenced to travel better and near the 1100 Metres had to be steadied away from the heels of BEAUTIFUL SCENERY.

He added at no stage of tonights race was BREEZE OF LUCKs action fluent and despite being ridden along it did not respond to his riding.
