Recap by phillip woo

Make It was rated behind midfield and on the rails, shifted into the clear four-to-five deep at the 300m and quickened nicely to get up in the final bob over Diamond Rainbow. Diamond Rainbow showed good speed to sit outside the leader Croesus in second from gate 10, headed and shook that one off at the 200m and was caught in the dying stages at long odds. He's always a chance over this Happy Valley trip. Croesus kept up the battle when narrowly headed at the 200m to go down fighting with a switch to Happy Valley. Team Work was last at the top of the straight and ran on willingly to fill the frame in fourth. Favourite Good Hong Kong making headway late in a bob of heads for fourth. He'll come on further for the experience and may be looking for the 1,400m at Sha Tin. Tang Palace was posted three deep without cover in third from gate 11, cornered in five wide and kept on reasonably well in his course debut. True Valour was a handy fourth and one off the fence, straightened three deep and kept on evenly with every possible chance. Wind Damper was struggling to keep up the gallop over the final 150m. Sun Speedy was ridden to tack on at the rear at the 1,000m and along the rails after badly missing the jump, straightened near the inside and kept on okay without threatening. Plunged late, Hot Pepper made his run fourth from the rear and three deep, cornered in with one wider out and never did fire.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (243) - LAI KOK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200 Meters SUN SPEEDY began very awkwardly and got its head up, resulting in B Prebble becoming unbalanced in the saddle.

Because of this, SUN SPEEDY lost ground.

Shortly after the start, WIND DAMPER shifted out and bumped HOT PEPPER.

MAKE IT, which was racing outside HOT PEPPER, was steadied away from the heels of that horse.

From the outside barrier, TEAM WORK was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Making the turn after the 1000 Metres, WIND DAMPER commenced to over-race and for some distance after this got its head up on a number of occasions when racing ungenerously.

Near the 900 Metres, TEAM WORK shifted out away from the heels of DARK SECRET when travelling keenly.

Near the 700 Metres and again approaching the 600 Metres, HOT PEPPER was checked out away from the heels of WIND DAMPER which continued to race ungenerously.

Passing the 700 Metres, MAKE IT was momentarily crowded for room inside GOOD HONG KONG which shifted in marginally.

Near the 500 Metres, SUN SPEEDY was crowded for room inside DARK SECRET which shifted in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of GOOD HONG KONG.

Passing the 300 Metres, GOOD HONG KONG (D Beadman) got its head on the side and lay out and then after the 200 Metres shifted out, resulting in HOT PEPPER being steadied away from the heels of GOOD HONG KONG.

D Beadman was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

Near the 150 Metres, TRUE VALOUR was awkwardly placed inside the heels of DIAMOND RAINBOW.

Over the concluding stages, WIND DAMPER was awkwardly placed inside the heels of GOOD HONG KONG.

Throughout the race, TANG PALACE travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight got its head on the side and lay out.
