Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Romantic Touch gobbled up from near last and widest out to win going away 30m out. It was a terrific performance on a leader's track and he will be winning more races. Enthusiasm enjoyed the box-seat run, worked to the lead two deep passing the 200m and found one too good in the end. Santa Fe Sun enjoyed a nice run one off in fifth, rallied five deep upon straightening and stayed on a non-threatening third in his initial run at the Valley. Formula Won settled behind midfield and one off the rails, cornered three deep, had to alter course underneath Enthusiasm 100m out and stayed on a clear-cut fourth. Albiceleste settled behind midfield and three deep with cover, swung the final bend two from the right and ran on without menacing. He is starting to find his legs and needs to be kept safe when next stepping out over a mile or 1,800m at this course. Firming late to jump as favourite, Full Talent worked to clear for the lead rounding the first bend, then was pressured by Regency King at the 600m and was yielding ground over the final 150m. Regency King drew level soon after straightening for the lead and was giving way 200m out. Beauty Lead made some ground late near the inside after travelling a distant last in the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (336)-WONG NAI CHUNG HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650Metres

VICTORY MASTER lifted its front feet off the ground at the start and was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, BEAUTY LEAD and ALBICELESTE were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

FORMULA WON had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and then after being shifted to the inside of the heels of FULL TALENT after the 300 Metres then raced in restricted room between that horse and ENTHUSIASM for a short distance.

Then near the 100 Metres, FORMULA WON was shifted to the inside of ENTHUSIASM (N Callan) which shifted out under pressure.

N Callan was advised to exercise more care.

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

When questioned regarding the performance of REGENCY KING, B Prebble stated that he had to make some use of the horse in the early stages to obtain its customary forward position.

He said passing the winning post on the first occasion REGENCY KING had pressure applied to it by FULL TALENT and then after being crossed by that horse near the 1300 Metres the horse was inclined to travel strongly and would not relax.

He said although REGENCY KING weakened in the latter stages of the race, he felt that this was due to the amount of work the horse had to do in the early stages and because of this he felt that its run was not as disappointing as it first appeared.

A veterinary inspection of REGENCY KING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, an endoscopic examination was not able to be conducted on the horse due to being fractious.

A veterinary inspection of FULL TALENT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FULL TALENT, ROMANTIC TOUCH and ENTHUSIASM were sent for sampling.
