Recap by phillip woo

General Iron recovered from a sluggish break to settle fourth along the rails at the 700m, moved to second coming to the final bend, assumed the front 200m out and stayed on gamely for the win with a key drop in class over the Valley minimum for the first time. Short-priced favourite Call Me Achiever travelled second along the rails, peeled four deep upon straightening and kept plugging on to finish a clear-cut second. Nearly halving his quote late, Ocean Roar showed good pace to lead from gate nine, cornered near two lengths on top and was giving way 100m out. Glory Horse settled third and one off the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and only held his ground. Specked late, Happily Time made his run one off the rails in fifth, rallied four deep upon straightening and kept plugging away without menacing in his first go at the Valley. Nobody But You made his run at the tail following a slow break and made some ground late without menacing. Might And Vision travelled along the rails in midfield, stayed near the inside upon straightening and failed to make any impression in the drive.

Before being allowed to race again, BOLD TACK will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

NOBODY BUT YOU began awkwardly.

From a wide barrier, KING ON EARTH was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

When being steadied in the early stages from the outside barrier to obtain cover, CHANS DELIGHT proved difficult to settle and passing the 800 Metres became unbalanced when racing tight outside SUPER GOAL ELITE.

Near the 650 Metres, KING ON EARTH bumped the hindquarters of NOBODY BUT YOU after being crowded for room inside CHANS DELIGHT which shifted in abruptly.

In the early part of the Straight, KING ON EARTH was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GOLDEN CHOICE.

Near the 250 Metres, CHANS DELIGHT was shifted in away from the heels of KING ON EARTH to obtain clear running.

After the race, W M Lai reported that the action of SUPER GOAL ELITE, which finished tailed out, was of concern as it did not travel comfortably at any stage of the race.

A veterinary inspection of SUPER GOAL ELITE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
