Recap by phillip woo

Again the lead was the place to be. Late-fancied Almababy got to the front 1,050m out from favourite Top Bonus, turned the final bend three lengths on top and kept up a strong gallop to open his win account at his seventh start and first at the Valley. Top Bonus found one too good after handing up the lead following a good start. Beauty Kingdom travelled near the inside behind midfield after a sluggish break, straightened near three deep and closed off reasonably well to grab a placing 100m out. Mission Possible made a steady bid with three wider out following a midfield run with cover one off the fence to just miss a placing. Red Kylin got going widest out after travelling among the markers. Golden Chopsticks peaked on his run 100m out following a prominent run along the fence. He was in need of the outing following a break. Looks Like The Cat made only a mild bid with one wider out after travelling fifth from the rear. Craig's Fortune went amiss 550m out following a deep run in midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (618)-SUFFOLK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

On arrival at the Start, LOOKS LIKE THE CAT and RED KYLIN, which made contact with a rail on leaving the Parade Ring, were examined by the Veterinary Officer who said that both horses were suitable to race.

LOOKS LIKE THE CAT began awkwardly.

BEAUTY KINGDOM lost ground when crowded for room on jumping between MISSION POSSIBLE and ALMABABY which shifted out.

LANG TAI SING and RED KYLIN bumped at the start.

A short distance after the start, RED KYLIN and LANG TAI SING were crowded for room between GREAT RUN and AIMING HIGH, both of which shifted ground.

LANG TAI SING and RED KYLIN were then steadied from wide barriers and shifted across behind runners.

AIMING HIGH lost its right front plate near the 1000 Metres.

For some distance after the 1000 Metres, BEAUTY KINGDOM was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS.

Making the turn near the 950 Metres, RED KYLIN got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of GREAT RUN.

After the 900 Metres, CRAIG'S FORTUNE was left racing wide and without cover and passing the 600 Metres gave ground abruptly and was retired from the race.

HIGH VOLATILITY and GREAT RUN, which were following CRAIG'S FORTUNE, were shifted in away from the heels of that horse near the 550 Metres as CRAIG'S FORTUNE gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of CRAIG'S FORTUNE immediately following the race found that horse to have bled from both nostrils.

After the 700 Metres, BEAUTY KINGDOM improved into tight running between GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS and LOOKS LIKE THE CAT.

BEAUTY KINGDOM and LOOKS LIKE THE CAT then raced very tight and bumped on a number of occasions for some distance approaching the 600 Metres.

RED KYLIN and LANG TAI SING, which were following, were steadied in consequence.

Near the 550 Metres, BEAUTY KINGDOM was then awkwardly placed close to the heels of MISSION POSSIBLE.

A veterinary inspection of LOOKS LIKE THE CAT immediately following the race confirmed the horse to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that GREAT RUN was lame in its left front leg.

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

ALMABABY and TOP BONUS were sent for sampling.
