Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Great Spirit settled at the rear following a sluggish break in a race run at a genuine tempo, peeled into the clear with one wider out upon straightening and finished up willingly to topple late-fancied favourite Dehere's The Love in the final few metres for a second win from his past three on this surface with the crucial claim of Dicky Lui Cheuk-yin. Dehere's The Love made his run behind midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with two wider out, worked to the front at the 150m and just found one too good in the end. Smart Man bided his time ahead of midfield and one off the rails, rallied six deep upon straightening, nearly drew level for the front at the 150m and kept on gamely to be a clear third. Ambitious King rolled forward after missing the kick to settle near the rails in fifth behind a solid tempo, worked to the front three deep at the 250m and couldn't keep things going over the final 100m. Choice Treasure peeled four deep upon straightening and kept plugging away without menacing. He's one to keep safe with a return to sprinting at the Valley. Rumba King was up with the leaders early on, and made some progress without menancing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (305)-SOUTH WALL HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

AMBITIOUS KING, which was fractious in the barriers, was slow to begin.

GREAT SPIRIT was crowded for room at the start between MEDALLIST and DEHERE'S THE LOVE which shifted out.

Approaching the 800 Metres, MEDALLIST and DEHERE'S THE LOVE bumped when taken wider by SMART MAN which shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of AMBITIOUS KING.

Throughout the race, FUN TAPESTRY travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

Also throughout the race, TURIN CHAMPION travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of GREEN ZONE and FUN TAPESTRY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GREAT SPIRIT and DEHERE'S THE LOVE were sent for sampling.
