Recap by phillip woo

Master Viking went to the front 200m out after stalking the speed one off the fence and held off the late surge of Confucius Spirit for a fifth win from 17 starts over this Valley trip. He had put the writing on the wall in earlier runs so a victory was not a surprise on a track that's favoured those up front. Confucius Spirit was closing with every stride after travelling fore of midfield to make it close on the wire. He's gone close in six of eight after a stable change and will be saluting shortly. Firming favourite Clever Spirit was finishing nicely two from the right after a rails run travelling behind midfield. He's a winner waiting to happen and might have the option of Class Five when he steps out again. Gold Talent stayed on a non-threatening fourth following a box-seat run. Wild Boy ran on steadily following a one-off run settling beyond midfield. He's had a lot of racing but is always a chance in this class. Smart Salute ran on late after missing the start from a wide gate. He was second in two prior starts and it's best to put a pen through this run. Very Rich Man worked too hard to find the front from a wide gate. His terrific gate speed is an asset and is not one to dismiss when he draws a gate.
