1 1 WONDER KIT (G455) L Hewitson CP Always prominent, raced just off the pace in a fast run race, vied for lead from 400M, kept responding under top weight and gained upper hand close home.
2 4 TOMODACHI KOKOROE (H303) Z Purton H/TT Jumped well from draw 1, led at good pace, taken on by rival from 400M and vied for lead throughout the straight, grudgingly gave way late.
3 3 CAPITAL DELIGHT (H262) C Y Ho TT Settled midfield, pushed along 450M, moved up 3rd mid-straight, ran on steadily to the line but always held by first 2.
4 7 GAMEPLAYER ELITE (H356) K Teetan SR Switched off to race near the rear, 9Ls to make up 400M, closed off strongly to be nearest at the finish. (Jockey : his mount lay in home straight and proved reluctant to shift to the outside of runners.)
5 5 COPARTNER AMBITION (E218) A Atzeni B/TT Obtained a position ahead of midfield, was closing off the race when checked 200M, ran on well final stages. Nearest finish.
6 2 HOSS (H055) B Avdulla XB/CP1/TT Not hurried early stages, dropped back to race towards the rear, 6-7Ls to make up 400M, stayed on moderately.
7 9 SMOKEY BEAR (E126) K De Melo B/XB/TT Chased leaders, ran on one paced in the straight, never a serious threat.
8 6 WINDICATOR FAMILY (H419) L Ferraris -- Slow to begin, raced in last over 10Ls off the fast pace, closed off well on straightening but left with too much to do.
9 10 SAVVY CHIC (G261) A Badel TT Settled down midfield, wide into straight, ran on fairly final 300M, no threat to leaders.
10 11 FUN N GLORY (G003) M L Yeung E-/TT Moved up chasing leaders in a fast run race, outpaced 250M, soon beaten.
11 12 KILINDINI (E236) K C Leung H/TT From wide draw knuckled over badly on jumping and became unbalanced, wide no cover chasing leaders, run ended 250M and weakened.
12 8 KA YING POWER (H169) Y L Chung H/TT Jumped only fairly and then was bumped after the start, held up behind midfield, under pressure 500M but failed to respond to riding, soon weakened.
