Recap by phillip woo

Jun Huo quickened nicely five deep after landing a perfect spot one-out, one-back to get up 120m out for a fourth win in his first start at the Valley from 11 outings. Late-fancied favourite, Pikachu ran on nicely near the inside to grab second 20m out after travelling three back along the fence. He'll be winning shortly. Photon Willie finished willingly five deep after travelling third from the rear along the inside to make it close for a Quinella spot despite a rise in grade. Twin Delight kept the pace genuine outside Fat Choy Hong Kong, pressed to the lead 200m out and was giving ground 100m out. Friends Of Ka Ying ran on reasonably well five deep after a patient ride at the tail of the field from a wide gate. Star Majestic was making a decent bid late with two wider out after travelling fourth from the rear. Early favourite Circuit Land never got into the act after a deep run near the back in his first start at the Valley. Fat Choy Hong Kong was stopping 150m out after dictating the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (563)-THE EWO CHALLENGE TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 2 - 1650Metres

KHAYA was withdrawn on 12.4.16 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (swollen left front fetlock).

Before being allowed to race again, KHAYA will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

FRIENDS OF KA YING began awkwardly and from the outside barrier was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Shortly after the start, FAT CHOY HONG KONG, when being ridden along, shifted in and bumped CIRCUIT LAND which in turn shifted in and made contact with STAR MAJESTIC.

Passing the 1300 Metres, CIRCUIT LAND was bumped by STAR MAJESTIC which shifted out away from the heels of JUN HUO.

PIKACHU was badly held up for clear running from on straightening until near the 150 Metres.

Close to the finishing line, FRIENDS OF KA YING an STAR MAJESTIC bumped.

Throughout the race, AMBER DRAGON travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the performance of CIRCUIT LAND, Z Purton stated that he was left racing in a three wide position in the early stages and it was not until AMBER DRAGON shifted in in advance of CIRCUIT LAND after the 1000 Metres that he was able to obtain cover.

He said after the 600 Metres he was not able to improve his position as AMBER DRAGON was only just maintaining its position.

He said he attempted to shift to the inside of that horse to follow STAR MAJESTIC through passing the 500 Metres, however, as FRIENDS OF KA YING improved its position to be racing to the inside of CIRCUIT LAND, he was not able to shift in.

He added this resulted in CIRCUIT LAND and FRIENDS OF KA YING racing tight near the 450 Metres.

He said he was therefore required to shift CIRCUIT LAND out passing the 400 Metres after which the horse finished off the race only fairly.

He added whilst CIRCUIT LAND may have appeared disappointing, he believed that there were circumstances which explained the horse's run.

A veterinary inspection of CIRCUIT LAND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

JUN HUO and PIKACHU were sent for sampling.
