Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Flying Silver kept on gamely after claiming the front from Rainbow Light rounding the final bend following his speed-chasing run for back-to-back wins following stepping up to the Valley 1,800m. The three-year-old has come into his own now and can win again. Smiling Time was gaining with every stride to come up a neck short after his rail run in midfield. He is racing well this season. Happy Angel stayed on well for a placing after his prominent run along the fence. He has given a good sight in back-to-back outings with late-market action. Rainbow Light grudgingly gave way after clearing to the lead from gate nine. It was not a bad effort carrying more weight over a longer trip following his win. Punted late, Perfect To Great from near last and widest out ran on to finish next best without menacing the top four. He was suited by the conditions, which favoured those horses in midfield or further forward. Keen Unity held his ground after his rail run in midfield. He went a shade better following his downgrade. Owners' Star ran on without menacing after being ridden cold from gate 12.
