2 12 TYCOON JEWELLERY (E473) A Hamelin H/TT Raced midfield along the rail. Moved away from the inside near the 500m mark, shifted wider entering last section when over 3L behind before closing strongly in final stages to move to second inside final 75m.
3 4 MARADO (E245) M Chadwick B Raced in midfield between runners for the majority. Eased wider on straightening, closed well in final furlong to move to third in late stages.
4 7 KASI FARASI (B385) H Bentley TT Drifted back to race worse than midfield along rail. Continued in second half, just under 4L from the lead entering last section before closing off well between runners in final stages to steal 4th late.
5 1 OSCAR GLORY (E109) Z Purton CP Had a nice position in midfield away from the rail. Eased three wide passing 600m, entered last section 2L from lead before pretty much holding that deficit all the way to line.
6 10 WOODFIRE BRO (G115) M F Poon H/TT Began a length slow before steadying near the 900m & racing 4th last on rail. Continued near the tail on straightening when 5L behind, didn't have the clearest run mid-straight before closing well in late stages.
7 5 RAINBOW LIGHT (E051) R Maia B/TT Raced on the leaders back for the majority. Was badly held up from on straightening until near the 100m mark before hitting the line well in late stages. Unlucky.

9 2 EZRA (C056) H T Mo B Had no early speed & raced at the tail & then second last along rail from the 800m. Stayed close to the inside on straightening when over 5L behind before passing a few tiring rivals but still being well beaten.
10 9 VOYAGE STAR (C098) A Badel V/TT Raced prominent before being crossed by leader near 900m then racing between runners in a line of three at the front. Raced tight with rival runner near 300m mark before emptying near 200m & weakening quickly in last furlong.
11 3 LIFELINE VISION (E318) K C Leung -- Shifted behind runners & raced second last before being relegated to last nearing the 850m. Shifted to be the widest runner on straightening when 6L from the lead before making no real headway in the straight.
12 13 KING OF THE COURT (E384) C Y Ho CP/TT Drifted back to third last when racing three wide with cover. Continued in second half when 5L form the lead on straightening before failing to make any headway in final section & being beaten same margin on line.
13 8 PERFETTO (G198) L Ferraris -- Raced just worse than midfield but was trapped racing three wide throughout. Forced four wide just prior to straightening when about 4L form the lead before weakening in final 300m to be well beaten second last.
14 6 STAR OF YUEN LONG (C303) H W Lai B/TT Pushed forward but was forced to race three wide without cover outside the leaders. Stopped badly in straight & was long last.
