Recap by phillip woo

Fancied late, Straight Forward sat on the back of the crawling pace of Euro Swiftly in second and one off the fence, rallied three wide upon straightening, worked to the lead 100m out and kept up a good gallop for back-to-back wins following a stable change. King Of Reason enjoyed the box-seat, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept on gamely to just edge favourite Silver Grecian for second. Silver Grecian settled a handy fourth and one off the fence, cornered in five wide and stayed on reasonably well off a big weight in his course debut. Happy Tumbler settled three back and on the rails, peeled five wide upon straightening and finished up nicely to fill the frame in fourth. Well-punted late, Finezza made his run fourth from the rear and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and made some progress late without menacing. He was not suited by the pace at all. Euro Swiftly found himself in an unfamiliar spot on the lead through crawling fractions, straightened nearly two lengths on top and couldn't keep up the gallop over the final 150m in a disappointing performance. Fun Rider bided his time third from the rear and near the inside, straightened four deep and never did fire. He wasn't happy about the pace. Specked late, Mr Bond's rider Ben So Ting-Hung was having a handful trying to stay on board as horse's saddle slipped at the 650m.
