Recap by phillip woo

Firming late Sichuan Boss came on strongly near the outside after travelling one-off behind midfield to grab victory 50m out. He had been threatening all season long at both tracks and should remain competitive near the top of the grade. Post-time favourite Glory Star came home a clear second following a prominent run. He appreciated the step back in distance and appears to have the tools to win one soon in this grade. Contribution capitulated late after assuming the front mid-straight following a breeze-punching run outside Top Act from a tricky gate. Early favourite Good Choice Ahead was only plodding when getting hampered 100m out by Sichuan Boss following a midfield run. He's knocking on the door but might require a class drop to open his win account. Enjoy Life jumped well to occupy the box-seat but failed to let down when push came to shove. He's more effective when ridden patiently midfield or slightly worse at Sha Tin.
