Recap by phillip woo

Fancied late in betting, You Read My Mind settled fourth and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with two wider out and really stretched out well over the final 150m to nail the favourite The Prince in the shadows of the post in his first run at the Valley and first test in open company after a promising Griffin campaign. He remains one to follow and will be suited over a longer sprint. The Prince mustered speed to eventually assume the lead from Sichuan Charm and Charity Joy at the 700m, built a margin of two lengths at the 200m and just found one too classy in the end. Charity Joy was posted three deep on the speed without cover from a wide gate, cornered five deep and stayed on gamely to just hold third. He's got some ability and will need to be kept safe next time out from a proper gate. Windicator Power settled midfield and one off the rails after recovering from a sluggish break at the 800m, worked into the clear with one wider out upon straightening and was making a good bid late to just miss a placing. Newcomer Sichuan Charm showed good gate speed to lead early on, before settling one out in second at the 700m, straightened four deep and condition only gave way 50m out. He'll be winning races in Hong Kong.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (033)-SHUM WAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

NOBODY BUT YOU began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped THE PRINCE on jumping.

MASSIVE shifted out at the start and hampered CHARITY JOY.

Approaching the 800 Metres, EASTERN PROMISE, which was being shifted across behind SEASONS STAR, struck the heels of that horse and blundered badly, resulting in its rider, Apprentice C Y Lui, almost being dislodged.

Apprentice Lui was shown video replays of the incident, in the presence of the Clubs Race Riding Instructor, and advised in future to ensure that he is aware of the circumstances of the race as they unfold and to apply the appropriate amount of judgement.

A veterinary inspection of SEASONS STAR immediately following the race revealed that horse to have sustained a wound over the inside of the right hind heel bulb.

Throughout the race, CHARITY JOY travelled wide and without cover and for some distance after the 800 Metres got its head up and proved very difficult to settle when being restrained to obtain a position with cover.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres and again making the Home Turn, SPITFIRE got its head on the side and lay out.

For some distance approaching and passing the 500 Metres, EASTERN PROMISE got its head on the side when awkwardly placed close to the heels of MASSIVE which shifted in when racing greenly.

YOU READ MY MIND and THE PRINCE were sent for sampling.
