Recap by phillip woo

Specked late, Tomodachi rolled straight to the front from gate one, set a good pace while cornering two lengths on top and kept finding to score well. He made full use of a good gate in a track with a bias more towards speed. Firming favourite Happy Champion settled midfield and one off the rails, pushed five wide upon straightening and ran on willingly to take out second in the final 50m. Specked late, Hinyuen Paladin settled over a length away in second and one off the fence, was back to third at the 600m, and kept on gamely for a placing. Seasons Star settled third from the rear and one off the rails, turned the final bend five deep and finished up well to just miss a placing with the step up to 1,200m. Glorious Sunday was a handy fifth along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and held his ground in the dash to the line in an encouraging debut effort. Speedygonzalez made his run near the tail of the field after breaking slowly, copped a couple of bumps when trying to come out three-to-four deep upon straightening and made some ground late without menacing in his initial run at the Valley. Griffindor made his run behind midfield and on the rails, came one off upon straightening and never was a factor in his debut.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (457)-GLOUCESTER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

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

Also from a wide barrier, SUPREME ESSENCE was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, CAPITAL K was steadied away from the heels of HINYUEN PALADIN which shifted out.

After this, CAPITAL K was ridden along to obtain a forward position, however, passing the 1100 Metres was left racing wide.

After this, CAPITAL K was continued to be ridden along to obtain a more forward position closer to the rail.

When being steadied to obtain a position with cover after the 1100 Metres, SKY FAR got its head up and raced ungenerously and making the turn near the 1000 Metres got its head on the side and hung out.

After the 900 Metres, SPEEDYGONZALEZ travelled keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GRIFFINDOR.

Rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, SKY FAR (M L Yeung) got its head on the side and hung out under pressure.

Then over the concluding stages, SKY FAR shifted in abruptly.

After the race, M L Yeung reported that SKY FAR raced greenly throughout the race.

The racing manners of SKY FAR were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, SKY FAR will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial around a bend.

Passing the 200 Metres, SPEEDYGONZALEZ was shifted out away from the heels of GLORIOUS SUNDAY.

After this, SPEEDYGONZALEZ was badly held up for clear running until passing the 100 Metres.

For the major part of the race, LOADS OF JOY travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that TOMODACHI was distressed.

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

A veterinary inspection of GRIFFINDOR and SKY FAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

TOMODACHI and HAPPY CHAMPION were sent for sampling.
