Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Bundle Of Joy led early on before Super Fresh took up the running at the 600m, reclaimed the front 300m out and repelled the challenge of Beauty Sparkle to chalk up a second win from three starts in his Valley debut. He remains one to follow. Beauty Sparkle enjoyed the trail on the back of the leaders in third and just off the rails, loomed up with every chance three deep at the 200m and found one too smart in a sound run following a stable change to the Tony Cruz yard. Sky Far travelled ahead of midfield and on the rails, shifted four deep soon after straightening and continued to hang out under pressure while finishing well to take control 10m out for a placing. Super Fresh rolled forward from a middle gate to poke his head on top one off the rails at the 600m, straightened four deep and kept on one-paced over the last 100m. Nobody But You recovered after a slow break to settled near the rails around midfield at the 600m, came four deep upon straightening and kept on reasonably well, despite the early deficit. Diamond Elegance made his run at the rear and along the fence after getting squeezed out a bit at the start, stayed near the inside upon straightening and kept on passed beaten rivals.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (598)-LE FRENCH MAY TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1000Metres

SUPER FRESH shifted out at the start, resulting in CHARITY JOY, AMEDEO and CROESUS all being hampered.

DIAMOND ELEGANCE was crowded for room at the start between SKY FAR and PRECISION KING (Y T Cheng) which was taken in by BEAUTY SPARKLE.

Shortly after this, PRECISION KING got its head on the side and shifted in despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in DIAMOND ELEGANCE being checked when crowded onto SKY FAR.

Y T Cheng reported that in this incident, his saddle shifted back and to the left.

NOBODY BUT YOU was slow to begin.

Passing the 900 Metres, NOBODY BUT YOU was awkwardly placed inside the heels of SKY FAR which got its head on the side and shifted in slightly.

Rounding the Home Turn, CHARITY JOY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PRECISION KING and near the 250 Metres was shifted out away from the heels of that horse.

Approaching the 150 Metres, SKY FAR got its head on the side and shifted out abruptly.

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

Passing the 150 Metres, BEAUTY SPARKLE was shifted out away from the heels of BUNDLE OF JOY which shifted out.

For the majority of the race, MERIDIAN TREASURE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, C Y Ho stated that as AMEDEO was resuming from a break, he had been asked to ride the horse with cover in about midfield if possible.

He said it was felt that being first up since early February, AMEDEO would not be able to finish off the race were it to be ridden for speed tonight from barrier 10.

He said AMEDEO did not handle the track conditions at any stage and rounding the Home Turn became unbalanced in its action.

After the race, Y T Cheng expressed concern over PRECISION KING's action.

A veterinary inspection of PRECISION KING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of AMEDEO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BUNDLE OF JOY and BEAUTY SPARKLE were sent for sampling.
