Recap by phillip woo

Danon Smash let down brilliantly to take control near the 100m for the win after settling three-deep with cover worse than midfield. He once again showed the class of the Japanese horses. Gallant old-timer Jolly Banner finished strongly from behind midfield to just snatch second at massive odds in a blanket finish for the minors. Rattan closed well from towards the rear for a placing. His big run was not a surprise after placing in two prior starts. Wishful Thinker just missed a place position with a bold run after getting to the outside for a clear run 300m out following a patient ride at the rear of the field. He is a rejuvenated runner this season under Dennis Yip Chor-hung's guidance. Fat Turtle ran on well near the outside travelling second last to pick up some prize money. He rarely produces a bad run over this trip. Hot King Prawn had his chance after a one-out, oneback run. A win last start after a hard run might have taken the sting out of his legs here.
