Recap by phillip woo

Specked late at odds Speedy Longwah wore down Packing Llaregyb 100m out for an upset win after settling one-out, one-back. The key to victory was a return to his favourite mile trip at the Valley where he is now a five-time winner. Packing Llaregyb moved to second after travelling midfield at the 700m, led 230m out and found one too good in the end. It was a good performance off a big weight after a second on the dirt and he can breakthrough shortly. Dynamism made his bid out wide to finish a distant third following a midfield run. He continues his honest form over this course but keeps finding one or a few too good. Encounter tended to wander under pressure near the outside in the drive after travelling in the second half of the field but still got up to snatch fourth in a promising debut. He'll appreciate a further trip as well. Sensation stayed on well to just miss a Quartet spot after a deep run without cover the entire trip travelling fore of midfield. He might be on his mark yet after a win three back over the Sha Tin 1,400m. Latefancied favourite People's Knight struggled to pick them off after travelling second from the rear behind muddling early fractions in his first run over the course. Early favourite So Caffe broke down 800m out.
