Recap by phillip woo

Wild Boy hit the front 130m out after a handy run with cover from a tricky gate and kept on gamely for an overdue win after a few unlucky runs among his opening five starts this term. He should remain competitive at the top of the weights with a claimer engaged or off a featherweight in Class Three over this Valley trip. Favourite Never Better ran on nicely from behind midfield to just miss. He's always a chance over this course and distance. Confucius Spirit stayed on well following a midfield run to just snare third ahead of Powermax in a pleasing first run for his new stable. He doesn't have much upside but certainly can get away a weak race over the same trip. Powermax kept plugging away to just miss the placings after being left without cover in midfield at the 800m from a wide gate. He's caught the eye in three outings and will be winning shortly. Unique Joyful was swamped 100m out after briefly finding the front 150m out following a pace-stalking run from a wide gate. He rarely runs a bad race but doesn't have much upside to come. Generous Bobo got shuffled back by the erratic and tiring Electronic Empire which cost him any chance of getting up for a placing.
