Recap by phillip woo

Stoltz just got up to deny long-time leader Classic Unicorn for the win after a one-off run better than midfield to make it three wins and two seconds from as many starts over this Valley trip. He's a true 1,000m specialist. Classic Unicorn gave a bold sight in front carrying a light weight to nearly cause a boil over. It was clearly his best run of the campaign. Early favourite Nervous Witness had his chance after a box-seat run but the big weight took its toll in the end. Voyage Warrior just failed to get up for third after a one-off trip in midfield. He's produced a good effort in each of his three runs over the Valley 1,000m this term. Explosive Witness motored late from near last to pick up a minor cheque. It was a pleasing effort after a stop-start campaign troubled by leg issues. We The South weakened over the final 100m after a pace-stalking run. He requires rating relief. Hong Kong Win ran on without menacing after finding the fence in midfield mid-race. He rarely produces a bad run but is looking for a return to Class Three. Grateful Heart made only a mild bid travelling behind midfield on the fence. He couldn't follow up an upset win over this trip in February. Atomic Force was a non-factor after a slow start.
