Recap by phillip woo

Sky Hero was well rated on the lead and kept finding to notch a second course-and-distance win this term. The claimer's allowance was worth the weight in gold. Harbour Alert stayed on well following a box-seat run but again had to settle for a bridesmaid role. He deserves a better fate. E-Super ran on steadily to make it close following a prominent run in his first outing on the surface. He's naturally returning to form and is one to keep safe when next stepping out in a sprint on the dirt or at the Valley. Joyful Moments came up one-paced over the final 100m after making a brief bid following a deep run in midfield. He's better suited over a longer trip. Favourite Star Of Yan Oi didn't have much go right, missing the kick and having to duck-and-weave for a run in the straight, only to just miss a First-4 spot. He can be excused for this run. Arizona Blizzard faded after covering too much ground following a handy run from a wide gate. He's another who can be forgiven for the run.
