Recap by phillip woo

Invictus settled behind midfield along the rails, shifted into the clear with three wider out soon after straightening and let down nicely to take control 150m out for the win with a return to Class Four. Skip Court settled fourth from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend widest out and hit the line with purpose to come out a clear second. Good Thinker was handy in the run along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and plugged on to just hold the late-fancied China Delight for third. China Delight switched off from a wide gate at the tail of the field, swung the final bend with one wider out and was doing his best work late. He's always a chance over this Valley trip. Favourite Mazandaran wasted a good gate yet again when peaking on his run five deep at the 100m following a one-out, one-back run. Young Talent was posted deep without cover worse than midfield, circled the field to lead 980m out, cornered a length on top and was giving way 150m out. Medic Kingdom didn't see out the mile distance after leading early on. Oyster broke down 500m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (153)-SHUM WAN HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

Shortly after the start, SKIP COURT shifted in and bumped INVICTUS, resulting in that horse being taken in onto the hindquarters of GOOD THINKER.

For a short distance after this, INVICTUS raced in restricted room between SKIP COURT and GOOD THINKER.

From wide barriers, CHINA DELIGHT and HOLY MAC were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Also in the early stages, NEW PET was shifted across behind runners.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, OYSTER got its head up and proved difficult to settle when awkwardly placed close to the heels of MONTE CASTELLO.

After being left racing wide and without cover near the 1300 Metres, YOUNG TALENT was allowed to stride forward into the lead after the 1200 Metres.

After the 1100 Metres, MONTE CASTELLO was taken wider by MAZANDARAN which shifted away from the rail.

After the 800 Metres, HOLY MAC was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, INVICTUS commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of OYSTER.

Then approaching the 500 Metres, OYSTER was galloped on by INVICTUS, resulting in that horse being dragged down behind and being retired out of the race.

When OYSTER broke down, INVICTUS and NEW PET were hampered whilst BE THERE AHEAD was inconvenienced and SKIP COURT was forced wider.

YOUNG TALENT hung out making the Home Turn and then continued to lay out for the remainder of the race.

Upon straightening, INVICTUS shifted out and bumped HOLY MAC.

In the early part of the Straight, GOOD THINKER raced tight inside MEDIC KINGDOM which lay in.

Also in the early part of the Straight, CHINA DELIGHT got its head on the side and lay in.

Near the 250 Metres, MONTE CASTELLO was momentarily awkwardly placed outside the heels of YOUNG TALENT due to both horses shifting ground.

A veterinary inspection of MEDIC KINGDOM and YOUNG TALENT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MAZANDARAN, INVICTUS and SKIP COURT were sent for sampling.
