1 10 SUPER CONTENTED (H251) K De Melo TT Soon led, took them along slowly, had a slight advantage turning home, kept kicking to line and found enough to hold on.
2 7 MR ALADDIN (H386) K Teetan CP Bumped at the start, stayed prominent behind leaders, poised to strike at 400M, kept closing but held by leader / winner towards the line.
3 4 SERANGOON (H296) H Bentley CP/TT Settled ahead of midfield, in 5th place ridden along 450M, did well under pressure to grab a placing, nearest at the line.
4 12 PALACE PAL (G172) M F Poon V Dropped back to race in the 2nd half of the field, pushed along inside 500M, made up a lot of ground in the run home to claim 4th, nearest finish.
5 5 FOREVER GLORIOUS (G229) C Y Ho B/TT Prominently ridden, followed leader on outside, vied for lead 400M, no match for leader mid-straight, no extra and lost several places final stages.
6 9 STRONGEST BOY (H027) Z Purton B/TT From wide draw taken back, settled in the back half of the field, 6Ls to make up 400M and closed off well, still in contention for a minor placing when not able to be ridden out late.
7 1 PRECISE EXPRESS (D198) Y L Chung H Held up in midfield along the 2-path, under the pump 450M, kept on without threatening in the straight.
8 8 FLYING SILVER (E478) B Avdulla TT Tracked leader, handy enough turning home but wasn't able to get into the finish, weakened mid-straight. (Jockey : raced keenly early and middle stages with the race being run outside of standard time.)
9 6 CASA COSMO (G436) L Hewitson CP-/XB-/B2/TT Adopted a rearward position, plenty to do turning for home, failed to make any real progress.
10 3 LOOKING COOL (G151) A Atzeni CP Bumped on jumping, obtained a midfield position 4-5Ls off the pace, failed to finish off in the straight. (Blood in trachea.)
11 11 VINCY (B213) M L Yeung SR/TT Switched off to race at the rear, couldn't keep up home turn, soon beaten.
