Recap by phillip woo

The well-fancied Hero Star kept finding in front for a comfortable win after turning the final bend a length on top. He had been knocking on the door with seconds in two prior starts. Wood On Fire kept on well to just hold off Gallant Waking for second after pressing the pace from gate 12. It was a solid effort despite giving the winner 17 pounds. Gallant Waking ran on nicely after saving ground in midfield to just miss second by a whisker. He was able to get on track with a return to the Valley following a break. Shadow Runner came on nicely two from the right to fill the frame at a price after travelling three deep towards the rear from a wide draw. He rarely produces a bad run. Hercules ran on without menacing near the inside after biding his time four back on the fence. He's looking forward to the summer break. Firming favourite Durham Star came up one-paced travelling one-off in midfield. It was an out-of-character run after three eye-catching placings following a win. Perfect Peach made headway down the outside but left things much too late after settling last from an awkward gate. Don't give up on the three-year-old just yet. Timestorm disappointed after a box-seat run.
