Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed late, Valiant Dream out-battled War Of Courage after poking his head in front 150m out for a second win over this course and distance at this level from eight starts. He'll need to lift on his earlier form in Class Three. War Of Courage was pressing favourite Smart Of Youth for the lead near the centre of the course, established a narrow advantage 400m out and wouldn't go down without a fight. Colonel stayed on well to place 150m out after switching inside for a clear run 350m out following a handy run on the grandstand side. Smart Of Youth was on his tippy toes 200m out after leading on the stands side. It was a better run second-up after coming out of a September defeat lame. Plunged late Ka Fortune was doing some nice work late but had trouble staying in touch at the rear for the most part. Tang Treasure made some ground after travelling behind midfield on the grandstand side. It was a better with a return to the straight 1,000m.
