Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed Brave Star was too good after assuming the lead from favourite Mr Fun 100m out following a speed-tracking run. He had caught the eye with a near win two back from three earlier starts. Miracles stayed on nicely to win a blanket finish of three for second after a prominent run. He appreciated a switch to the Valley after filling the frame in two of three other starts on the dirt this term. Mr Fun grudgingly gave way after roaring to the front 1,000m out from the widest barrier. He has made a good impression in his two starts from outside draws and will be saluting shortly. Punted late, A Americ Te Specso ran on nicely to just miss a placing by a lip after a rail run in midfield. It was a vastly improved effort third up with a switch to the Valley. Chill Way ran on reasonably well from towards the rear to finish next best without threatening the top four. It was an encouraging debut effort. Smiling City just plodded after getting all the favours in the box seat. He is not genuine. Sight Hero was a non-factor after a slow start.
