Recap by phillip woo

Better Announce stalked the leader Choice Exchequer to his outside, rushed to the front 850m out, cornered a length on top and kept up a good gallop for a maiden win at his 26th start. Choice Exchequer dropped back to enjoy the box-seat after handing up the lead, pulled out three deep with every chance upon straightening and had to settle for second in the end. Super Silks travelled one-out, one-back, rounded the final bend with five deep and ran on steadily for a placing in his Valley debut. Favourite Southchina Command came up flat over the final 100m after travelling three back along the fence. He had no excuses. Very Well made only a mild bid with three wider out after a one-off run with cover in midfield. Safari Magic settled behind midfield and one off the fence, straightened four deep and made some ground without menacing. House Of Luck only held his ground after a handy run along the fence. He had no excuses despite a drop in class.
