Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Golden Harvest eventually slotted in with cover one off the rails and five from the back from a wide gate, swung the final bend widest out, laid in under the left whip at the 220m, hit the lead 150m out and drew clear to win with plenty in hand, despite a step up in class. He remains one to follow. Good Good View jumped well to hold a position in fifth along the rails after being restless in the stalls, straightened three deep, ducked underneath a tiring Nordic One to briefly lead at the 200m and kept on gamely for second in his initial run at the Valley. Mi Savvy settled fourth and one off the rails, straightened four deep and stayed on nicely to take third. Joyful The Great had a lot of work ahead of him while cornering with two wider out and with only two behind him, but did find the line well to fill the frame in fourth. He's caught the eye in two of three starts and won't be far off a winning run. Well-backed late, Sea The Pearls settled along the rails behind midfield, straightened four deep and made some ground without menacing. Regency Champion made his run second from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend with one wider out and got going late passed beaten rivals. Ensemble kept on evenly when getting hampered at the 200m

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (710)-THE CRICKET CLUB VALLEY STAKES (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

HAPPY FOREVER, Standby Declared Starter, was withdrawn on 18.6.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore).

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

On arrival at the barriers, the tongue tie carried by GOLDEN HARVEST was refitted.

After being loaded, REGENCY CHAMPION reared, resulting in its rider, C W Wong, losing the use of his left stirrup iron.

Whilst C W Wong was regaining the use of this stirrup iron, GOOD GOOD VIEW reared on a number of occasions.

MASSIVE was slow to begin.

From a wide barrier, GREAT SPIRIT was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After being ridden along in the early stages, REGENCY CHAMPION was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of MI SAVVY which shifted in slightly.

After this, REGENCY CHAMPION was continued to be ridden along, however, failed to muster speed.

Near the 900 Metres, MASSIVE got its head on the side and became unbalanced after making contact with the running rail.

JOYFUL THE GREAT, which was following MASSIVE, was shifted out away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

After the 800 Metres, JOYFUL THE GREAT commenced to race ungenerously and got its head up on a number of occasions when proving very difficult to settle.

GREAT SPIRIT made the turn after the 600 Metres awkwardly and shifted out towards the heels of REGENCY CHAMPION.

Near the 250 Metres, ENSEMBLE was shifted out away from the heels of MI SAVVY which got its head on the side and shifted out away from RIDE ON THE FIRE.

A short distance later, ENSEMBLE was checked and became unbalanced when crowded for room between MI SAVVY and GOLDEN HARVEST (T Berry) which shifted in.

T Berry was advised that whilst MI SAVVY had contributed to this incident by shifting out, nonetheless he was reprimanded for allowing his mount to shift in which further contributed to the difficulties experienced by ENSEMBLE.

At the 200 Metres, SEA THE PEARLS was checked when disappointed for running between NORDIC ONE and RIDE ON THE FIRE, both of which shifted ground when commencing to weaken.

A short distance after the 200 Metres, RIDE ON THE FIRE, which was continuing to give ground, was momentarily crowded for room between SEA THE PEARLS and MI SAVVY which got its head on the side and shifted in.

At the 50 Metres, JOYFUL THE GREAT shifted in towards the heels of MI SAVVY.

Over the concluding stages, JOYFUL THE GREAT raced tight outside MI SAVVY.

The performance of MASSIVE, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, MASSIVE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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

GOLDEN HARVEST and GOOD GOOD VIEW were sent for sampling.
