Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Choice Treasure saved ground in midfield from a good gate, peeled four deep upon straightening, hit the front 150m out and just staved off the late surge of Five Up High for an overdue win. Five Up High settled second after leading early on, swung the final bend five deep and finished well at only his second outing in Hong Kong. Victorius bided his time second from the rear, was forced very wide coming to the final bend after making his move 500m out and closed off furiously to grab a placing. He'll come on for this run and remains one to follow over this Valley trip. Calling With Love was never able to obtain cover three deep worse than midfield despite gate five, improved to sit handy with two wider out and just missed a placing. King Derby made some ground near the inside after settling among the backmarkers. Peace On Earth settled fifth and one off the rails, cornered five deep and ran on steadily without menacing. Hong Kong Dancer was caught deep near the speed from a wide gate, rolled to the front 600m out and was stopping 100m out. En Civil yielded ground following a handy run along the fence. You Are The One was struggling 200m out after punching the breeze in third.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (128)-THE IRELAND TROPHY (HANDICAP) (Sec2) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

ULTIMATE WINNERS shifted in at the start and hampered KING DERBY.

Shortly after the start, FIVE UP HIGH was bumped by PEACE ON EARTH which shifted in after being brushed by CALLING WITH LOVE.

From the outside barriers, MR GENUINE and VICTORIUS were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1000 Metres, EN CIVIL proved difficult to settle when being steadied to allow FIVE UP HIGH to cross into the lead.

In the early stages, HONG KONG DANCER was left racing wide and without cover and after the 900 Metres was allowed to stride forward into the lead.

After the 800 Metres, CALLING WITH LOVE was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, KING DERBY raced tight inside SUMARAND DRAGON which was racing tight inside CALLING WITH LOVE.

Also making the turn after the 600 Metres, MR GENUINE got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of ULTIMATE WINNERS.

Approaching the 500 Metres, KING DERBY was checked away from the heels of CHOICE TREASURE.

Near the 400 Metres, PEACE ON EARTH was awkwardly placed close to the heels of YOU ARE THE ONE after attempting to shift to the outside of that horse before CALLING WITH LOVE improved quickly to the outside of PEACE ON EARTH.

Passing the 250 Metres, SUMARAND DRAGON was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CALLING WITH LOVE when proving reluctant to shift to the outside of that horse.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of YOU ARE THE ONE, J Moreira stated that he was instructed to lead if possible, however, his mount, despite being ridden along, did not show sufficient early speed to cross runners to its inside which were being vigorously ridden to obtain forward positions.

He said rather than persist to try and lead on YOU ARE THE ONE, he initially obtained a position outside FIVE UP HIGH and when HONG KONG DANCER improved around his outside, he allowed that horse to continue on into the lead.

He added YOU ARE THE ONE came under pressure near the 500 Metres and did not quicken as the horse had done in its past races.

He said despite being ridden out in the Straight, YOU ARE THE ONE gave ground and raced very disappointingly.

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

The performance of YOU ARE THE ONE was considered unacceptable.

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

CHOICE TREASURE and FIVE UP HIGH were sent for sampling.
