Recap by phillip woo

Romantic City was too swift to lead on his own from gate five, straightened three lengths on top and kept up a good gallop to continue his fine run of form of late for a cozy second win and a second from his past three over this Happy Valley trip. Plunged late to jump favourite, Bundle Of Love was four lengths off the leader in fifth along the inside, worked to second one off at the 150m and held off the late rally of Charity Spirit for the runner-up spot in his course debut. Charity Spirit settled midfield and one off the fence, cornered in four deep and was closing off steadily late to be a clear third off a big weight. Hawthorne travelled a prominent fourth and one off the fence, cornered four deep and kept on reasonably well to fill the frame in fourth. Sir Eagles made his run third from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend four-to-five deep and was getting going late when the race was all but over in a decent effort with a switch to the city track. Early favourite, Windicator Power delayed the start when breaking through the gates. He made his run behind midfield and two deep after getting squeezed out at the start, turned the final bend with two wider out and made some progress late without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eihgt: (239) - CHEK LAP KOK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000 Meters FUJIAN SPIRIT and AMEDEO proved difficult to load.

Before being allowed to race again, FUJIAN SPIRIT and AMEDEO will both be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

After being loaded, WINDICATOR POWER became fractious and broke through the front gates prior to the start being effected.

WINDICATOR POWER was returned to the Start and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

Having in mind the circumstances, the Stewards ruled that prior to being permitted to race again, WINDICATOR POWER will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

WINDICATOR POWER, which began awkwardly, was checked shortly after the start when crowded for room between CHARITY SPIRIT and BUNDLE OF LOVE, both of which shifted ground.

CHOICE TREASURE shifted out at the start and bumped GROOVY.

From the outside barrier, FUJIAN SPIRIT was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Over the final 150 Metres, CHOICE TREASURE was not able to obtain clear running and consequently was not able to be properly tested.

Throughout the race, GROOVY travelled wide and without cover.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of C Y Ho (WINDICATOR POWER), 6th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horses finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SUPER PLUS, K C Leung stated that over the 1000 Metres of tonights race, SUPER PLUS was always off the bridle and never travelled comfortably at any stage.

He said, in his opinion, SUPER PLUS would be much better suited in races over 1200 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of SUPER PLUS after the race did not show any significant findings.

ROMANTIC CITY and BUNDLE OF LOVE were sent for sampling.
