Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed Shining Ace got up 50m out for the win after getting the run of the race in the box seat for a third win from 11 starts. He was able to build on a recent placing. Dancing Fighter found one too good after surging to the front 250m out travelling prominent without cover the entire trip from a wide gat. It was a huge run in defeat in his first outing in this grade. Buoyant Boy dashed well from midfield to fill a placing. He rarely produces a bad run over this Valley trip and will certainly come on from this run. Perfect Pair ran on reasonably well after a patient ride fourth from the back. The 1,200m was still inadequate but it was a better run second-up here. Breeders' Sky gradually faded over the final 100m after stalking the leader My Ally. He's shown some progress in his two starts this term. Favourite My Ally plodded over the final 200m after being hustled to lead from a middle gate. Starlight ran on without menacing from behind midfield.
