Recap by phillip woo

Smart Declaration took control 100m out for the win following a prominent run. The return to Class Four over his favourite trip was good enough to get him back in the winner's circle for a fifth time in his career. Plunged late Look Eras kept on nicely for second after defying a three-deep run without cover on the speed to lead 150m out. He's really coming into his own sprinting on the Valley turf this season. Noble De Boy came on well near the inside after a patient ride third from the rear to get the bob down for third. He has trouble winning but has only missed a placing once from four outings over this trip. Rookie Star came on well following a midfield run to just miss a placing in his first outing over this track. He's flashed some ability in his six outings but is still a work in progress. Actuariat made some ground down the outside following a one-off run beyond midfield. Old-timer Ocean Roar faded in the drive after being challenged for the lead on both sides.
