Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite Seasons Bloom made a sterling move after a deep run with cover behind midfield to win with something in hand. He had put the writing on the wall after a terribly unlucky first-up run and there's a lot more upside to come. California Whip produced a bumper debut but found one too smart following a one-out, one-back run carrying top weight. He's got a future in Hong Kong and will get further as well. A Beautiful couldn't gave a decent sight after finding the front from a wide gate but had to settle for third in the end. He hasn't been far off the mark in two recent outings at this level but is likely going to need a drop in grade for a return to the top. Jade Fortune finished well after travelling behind midfield to fill a Quartet spot. He's naturally coming to hand with racing and won't be too far off a winning run over this trip or possibly a mile. Diamond King had an off day when failing to let down following a midfield run despite a suitable rise in trip. Likely leader Kingsfield was posted deep without cover following a sluggish break from a wide gate and succumbed inside the final 200m.

Passing the 300 Metres, HAPPY JOURNEY was shifted in away from the heels of EXCEL ONESELF.

When questioned regarding the performance of KINGSFIELD, D Whyte stated that after becoming badly unbalanced at the start, KINGSFIELD was able to take up a forward position without having to do too much work.
