Recap by phillip woo

Tai Sing Yeh settled three back along the rails, peeled into the clear six deep upon straightening and quickened nicely to take control 100m out for a seven career win over this Valley trip following a return to his former mentor Manfred Man Ka-leung. Bullish Friend dictated the running from a good gate, cornered a length on top and kept on gamely when headed to just hold off firming favourite Super Jockey for second with the claim of Dicky Lui Cheuk-yin well utilised. Super Jockey settled one-out, one-back in the run, straightened five deep and kept grinding away, despite a tendency to drift inwards to just miss the Quinella spot in his first run at the Valley following a sharp rise in the ratings. Tour De Force enjoyed the box-seat run, stayed to the inside upon straightening and couldn't make any impression. Perfect Finish swung the final bend with two wider out and was getting going late without menacing.

BULLISH FRIEND began awkwardly and got its head up.

IMPERIAL ROME was slow to begin.

TAI SING YEH shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of WITHINMYHEART which became unbalanced.

TOUCH GO began awkwardly and then despite being vigorously ridden along in the early stages failed to muster speed.

In the early stages, SUPER JOCKEY proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions and approaching the 1000 Metres became unbalanced after striking the heels of BULLISH FRIEND.
