1 11 FLYING HIGH (E204) M Chadwick TT Jumped only fairly, waited with towards the rear along the stand's rail, ran on powerfully passing 300M, produced the fastest 400M finish of the day to nail the leader near line.
2 9 CHEVAL VALIANT (E336) Y L Chung B/H/TT Sped to the lead and soon crossed to the stand's side, built a clear margin halfway, kept on well under 7lb claimer only to be nailed by winner close home.
3 2 METRO WARRIOR (D387) L Hewitson B Chased the clear leader, roused along 350M but lacked the needed response, battled on to take a non-threatening 3rd.
4 8 SEASONS WIT (H223) Z Purton B1/TT Gradually moved forward to be 3rd on settling, waited with until 250M but found less than expected, soon no threat to first 2, just missed 3rd in a photo finish.
5 3 PLEASANT ENDEAVOR (E114) K C Leung B In 4th place 3-4Ls off the runaway leader, kept on same pace final 400M, failed to threaten first two.
6 1 RUN RUN COOL (E322) H Bowman PC Not hurried after the start, reserved at the rear 7Ls off the pace, stayed on mildly over final 400M and never dangerous.
7 5 CALIFORNIA RAD (D147) M F Poon B/TT From draw 14 moved up along the stand's rail to race in midfield, battled on one paced final 400M, never a serious threat. (Bled.)
8 4 NICCONI COUNTY (G208) S De Sousa TT Settled behind midfield, 7Ls off leader at 400M, made limited progress only.

11 10 READY TO WIN (E422) L Currie XB/TT Always near the rear, hung in over final 400M and proved difficult to ride, failed to progress.
12 12 SILVER SONIC (H171) C Y Ho TT1 Towards the rear down center of the track, not quickened passing 400M, failed to factor.
13 14 TALENTS SUPREMO (H133) K Teetan XB Badly crowded for room at start, restrained towards the rear, failed to keep pace passing 400M, weakened. (Jockey : no cover during race being the reason for disappointing run.)
