Recap by phillip woo

Hero Star kept on nicely for the win after surging to the lead 150m out following a pace-stalking run. He's really turned the corner to win two of his past four starts following a return to the Valley 1,200m. Sight Hero ran on well to finish a close second following a prominent run. It was solid first effort over this course after placing in two of five Sha Tin runs. Happily Friends plugged on reasonably well for third after a rail run better than midfield. It was another honest performance. Good Buddy did have to check close to home with a bold move from towards the rear. He's heading in the right direction after hitting the line well in his past two of four starts. Chikorita made some ground after a rail run five back to pick up a pay cheque. On the back of his past two starts, he might be close to a bottom. Punted late, Ares had every chance following a box-seat run. It was a disappointing performance despite a return to the level of a win in October. Favourite Star Of Wuyi ran on without menacing after getting posted deep towards the rear from a wide draw. He had an excuse.
