Recap by phillip woo

Distill settled fourth from the rear and two deep, took off 500m out, cornered in with one wider out and finished up willingly on the back of a suitable pace to get up in the final few metres for an upset win at only his second start with a switch to Happy Valley. Elegance Klammer bided his time second from the rear and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and was hitting the line with purpose to come up just short while shading Real Supreme late for second. Favourite Real Supreme went a good clip while stretching the field out on the speed, straightened nearly two lengths clear and was swamped late in his first run at Happy Valley. Emperor Claudius settled midfield and two deep, rallied six wide upon straightening and kept whacking away late to finish a non-threatening fourth. Leeli's turned the final bend with two wider out and was getting going late in an improved effort. Specked late, Victor Delight came up flat over the last 100m. Happy Tumbler settled third from the rear and along the inside, straightened four deep and kept on passed beaten gallopers. Straight Forward settled behind midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend on the back of Emperor Claudius and kept on one-paced over the final 150m. Holiday Sun settled fifth along the paint, rounded the final bend underneath Emperor Claudius, steadied for a brief moment at the 200m between runners and gave way final 100m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (710) - HO CHUNG RIVER HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650 Meters STRAIGHT FORWARD was crowded for room at the start between SUNRISE and DISTILL, both of which shifted ground.

From the outside barrier, LEELI!|S STAR was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, VICTOR DELIGHT was steadied away from the heels of REAL SUPREME.

Shortly after entering the Straight, ORACLE shifted in and bumped ELEGANCE DESIRE.

Passing the 200 Metres, HOLIDAY SUN was steadied when momentarily tightened for room between VICTOR DELIGHT which shifted out and EMPEROR CLAUDIUS which in the Straight hung in badly and proved difficult to ride.

Before being allowed to race again, EMPEROR CLAUDIUS will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial.

Near the 100 Metres, LEELI!|S STAR was awkwardly placed inside the heels of ELEGANCE KLAMMER which shifted in slightly.

A veterinary inspection of HOLIDAY SUN and STRAIGHT FORWARD after the race did not show any significant findings.

REAL SUPREME, DISTILL and ELEGANCE KLAMMER were sent for sampling.
