Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Richcity Fortune easily drew away for a cozy win after easily finding the front from a tricky gate. He relished a return to the Sha Tin 1,200m at his second run in the grade but will again find things harder with a return to Class Four. Bernard's Choice closed off nicely near the inside after travelling second from the rear to grab second 150m out. She had produced a better run last start with a return to the Sha Tin 1,200m so another positive effort was no surprise. Telecom Boom didn't gain a clear run until the 260m after a rails run in midfield and finished up reasonably well thereafter to edge out Great Speed for a placing. He's failed to menace on a win line but has come home with a pay slip in four of seven sprints this term. Great Speed was given all favours in the boxseat but only boxed on one-paced. He rarely runs a bad race but is more effective at the city venue. Lean Journey ran on without menacing after a deep run travelling near the back. He got too far back in the run. Starry Starlies got by stragglers after settling last in the run from a wide gate. He didn't appreciate the muddling pace.
