Recap by phillip woo

Post-time favourite Powermax overhauled early favourite Loriz 100m out for a fifth career win over this Valley trip following a perfectly-executed ride on the back of the speed. Iron Boy found one too good with a move along the fence following a midfield run. He's racing well without winning. Brilliant flashed home late to snatch a placing after a patient ride fourth from the rear. It was his best run to date but he did show a similar burst to go close over this trip in July. Loriz hit the lead 250m out after stalking the genuine pace of Nice Fandango but was on his tippy toes 50m out. He wasn't able to counter a rise in weight for a last-start win. Forever Sharp was doing some nice work late from behind midfield. It was an improved run second-up with the blinkers coming off in his initial Valley run. Lotus Breeze left things too late after making his run at the rear of the field. He needed the run following a short break and the 1,400m suits him better.
