Recap by phillip woo

Matthew Poon Ming-fai did not panic on leader Good Companion when shaded to his outside by Very Rich Man at the 800m, retook the front rounding the final bend and staged off a challenge by Roman Odyssey for a third win this term. The writing had been on the wall in his past two starts. Roman Odyssey finished well following a prominent run on the fence. He should be able to get away with a race at this level next season. Bundle Of Energy came with a bold move after settling fourth from the rear to finish a very close third in a vastly-improved effort at this third start. Punted late Love Chunghwa closed nicely along the inside settling last from a wide gate. He can pop up at any moment off his current mark. Dr Race had his chance following a midfield run on the fence. He's more effective over the 1,000m. Favourite Formula Galore came to win the race at the 200m travelling one-off with cover worse than midfield but peaked on his run 100m out.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of LUNAR ZEPHYR, D Whyte stated that his mount travelled in a similar manner in the early and middle stages to its last start.
