Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Valiant Elegance was too good after getting his own way in front for a second straight win over the Valley 1,200m. He was the only one on paper with any speed and made them pay, but he will likely find things harder in Class Three next time out. Veteran Ambitious Heart kept on gamely for second after working forward from a tricky gate to stalk the speed. It was clearly his best run of the campaign but he was well rated off his current mark. Winning Icey ran on well for a placing after biding his time fourth last from an awkward gate. It was a good effort in a race run to suit the speed. Harrier Jet just failed to place after a one-out, one-back run. It was another honest effort by the 10-year-old. Jiangxi Stamina came from near last and widest out to just miss a top-four spot. It was a good run on the back of a slow pace carrying nine pounds more following a win. Run The Table made a mild bid without threatening after a rails run in midfield. Prefer him in Class Five. Salutation plugged on without ever looking a chance after a one-off run behind midfield. He's destined for Class Five. Punted late, Happy Forever weakened after getting caught wide without cover fore of midfield. He had an excuse.

He said in accordance with his instructions he rode PERFECT PEACH along in the early stages, however, PERFECT PEACH was left racing wide and without cover outside HAPPY FOREVER after the 1100 Metres.

He said as he felt like he would have had to do too much work to continue forward of runners to his inside to obtain a position closer to the rail, he elected to steady his mount after the 1000 Metres to obtain a position with cover behind HAPPY FOREVER.

He added that PERFECT PEACH, which was having only its 4th race start tonight, raced greenly and then when coming under pressure prior to the 400 Metres lay in towards the heels of SALUTATION which resulted in PERFECT PEACH being awkwardly placed behind that horse.

He said in the Straight PERFECT PEACH then did not finish the race off.
