Recap by phillip woo

New Deerfield has come right after a recent gelding operation. He was switched off third from the rear and one off the fence, cornered in five wide and quickened up nicely to get up 20m out for an upset victory. Mi Savvy settled second and one off the fence, swept to a narrow lead four deep passing the 200m and kept on gamely for second. He relished a return to the Valley with a move to blinkers. Firming favourite Braveness enjoyed the box-seat, narrowly hit the lead one off the fence at the 250m and went down fighting with a step up in distance. It was a nice effort in defeat on a track with a bias for the wider part of the course. Perfect Finish recovered to settle behind midfield and on the rails after clearly missing the jump from a wide gate, stayed to the inside upon straightening and ran on steadily late to fill the frame. He remains one to keep safe when next stepping out. Great Spirit settled worse than midfield and one off the fence, turned the final bend with two wider out and made some progress late without menacing. Genuine Leader straightened four deep and made some ground late without threatening. Sea The Pearls was never better than four deep without cover in midfield and can be forgiven for this run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (406)-YUEN LONG HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

Just prior to the start being effected, PERFECT FINISH became fractious and as the gates were released was slow to begin.

SEA THE PEARLS began only fairly and shortly after the start was crowded for room between CARRY THE ZEAL and XI YING MEN which shifted in.

From the outside barrier, GENUINE LEADER was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Making the first turn after the 1000 Metres, SEA THE PEARLS commenced to travel keenly, got its head on the side and shifted out.

Then passing the 900 Metres, SEA THE PEARLS continued to over-race and shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of LOADS OF JOY.

After this, SEA THE PEARLS continued to prove difficult to settle when travelling wide and without cover.

Near the 700 Metres, LOADS OF JOY was shifted away from behind MI SAVVY after racing close to the heels of that horse and after this travelled wide and without cover.

Near the 50 Metres, PERFECT FINISH was steadied away from the heels of BRAVENESS after getting its head on the side and shifting out.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on GENUINE LEADER at the request of Trainer A T Millard.

The Veterinary Officer reported that this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, GENUINE LEADER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of CARRY THE ZEAL after the race did not show any significant findings.

BRAVENESS, NEW DEERFIELD and MI SAVVY were sent for sampling.
