Recap by phillip woo

Massively hit at the jump, Happy Beauty defied a deep run with cover beyond midfield to run down Winning Controller one from the right in the final few metres to notch a second win from 14 starts. The lighter weight under claimer Matthew Poon Ming-fai and step back in distance was the right mix. Favourite Winning Controller lost nothing in defeat after hitting the front 170m out following a well-executed run in midfield. He'll be saluting shortly. Don Wongchoy stayed on nicely for a placing after being left without cover four deep in midfield at the 600m. He's turned the corner in his past two starts. Punted late Kwaichung Brother peaked on his move from behind midfield at the 100m. He isn't far off a win at this level. Gold Talent closed nicely widest out after settling at the tail of the field. He keeps running on without menacing the winner.

Near the 900 Metres, AMBITIOUS SPEEDY was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 900 Metres, WINNING CONTROLLER commenced to travel keenly and got its head up when awkwardly placed behind REGENCY HONEY which was being steadied to allow MASSIVE POWER to cross.
