Recap by phillip woo

Loyal Baby kept on gamely slipping away by two lengths rounding the final bend after surging to the lead three wide 850m out for a second career win over this course and distance. Amazing One Plus just outdashed Storm Legend with one wider out for second from behind midfield. He is always a chance over this Valley trip. Storm Legend came on nicely down the outside from near last to nearly take second. He has trouble winning but it was another honest performance. Comet Splendido ran on steadily for fourth without menacing the top three following a rail run in midfield. The big weight took its toll. Maldives was doing his best work late when the race was all but over after making his run one from the rear. It was a typical effort this season. Winning Dragon whacked on one paced, straightening two from the right after a handy run one off the fence. He was anchored by the top weight after back-to-back wins. Win Win Fighter ran on without menacing along the inside, travelling five back on the fence. He failed to hold his own yet again at this level following a Class Four win.
