Recap by phillip woo

Old-timer Happy Yeah Yeah settled one off in second after leading early on, reclaimed the lead, rounding the final bend, and kept on gamely despite top weight to notch a 10th win, eighth over this Valley trip, from 58 starts. Firming favourite Wah May Baby fought on well to hold second after clearing to the front 850m out. Happy Life swung the final bend widest out after travelling second from the rear to run down Happy Bao Bei in the final few strides for a placing at only his second start. It was a good effort on a track favouring leaders and he'll be winning shortly. Happy Bao Bei enjoyed the box-seat run, straightened three deep and kept grinding away to just miss a placing. He's returning to form and needs to be kept safe when next stepping out. Generous Bobo only held his ground following a prominent run. Punted late, Lotus Breeze made some ground without menacing with three wider out following a one-off run travelling behind midfield. Specked late, Bolshoi Ballet made only a mild bid near the inside after travelling fourth from the rear. Imperial Champion came up flat after cornering four deep following a one-off run with cover in midfield. Lamarosa travelled three deep without cover fore of midfield from a wide gate, improved to third 300m out and was struggling 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (634)-LE FRENCH MAY TROPHY (HANDICAP) (Sec2) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

GENEROUS BOBO began awkwardly.

LOTUS BREEZE began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped LOVELY DELOVELY.

LOTUS BREEZE then raced in restricted room between LOVELY DELOVELY and HAPPY LIFE which became unbalanced after being bumped by LOTUS BREEZE.

HAPPY BAO BEI and WAH MAY BABY bumped at the start.

From the outside barriers, LANG TAI SING and MR PELE were shifted across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1100 Metres, LOVELY DELOVELY, which was proving difficult to settle, got its head up on a number of occasions when racing tight between LOTUS BREEZE and IMPERIAL CHAMPION (G Lerena) which shifted in.

In this incident, LOTUS BREEZE became unbalanced when bumped by LOVELY DELOVELY.

In assessing not to proceed to issue a charge against G Lerena, the Stewards found that the racing manners of LOVELY DELOVELY had contributed significantly to this incident and accordingly G Lerena was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is properly clear of other runners when shifting ground.

Then making the turn near the 1000 Metres, LOVELY DELOVELY got its head up when proving difficult to settle and racing tight between LOTUS BREEZE and LAMAROSA which, despite the efforts of its rider, got its head on the side and was inclined to lay in.

This resulted in LOVELY DELOVELY losing ground.

After the 900 Metres, IMPERIAL CHAMPION was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY YEAH YEAH.

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

GENEROUS BOBO lost its right front plate near the 600 Metres.

Passing the 500 Metres, HAPPY BAO BEI was awkwardly placed close to the heels of WAH MAY BABY.

GENEROUS BOBO, which was following HAPPY BAO BEI, shifted out away from the heels of that horse, resulting in IMPERIAL CHAMPION racing tight inside LAMAROSA.

After the 450 Metres, LOVELY DELOVELY and LOTUS BREEZE raced tight.

Shortly after entering the Straight, BOLSHOI BALLET was steadied when disappointed for running inside GENEROUS BOBO (C Schofield) which shifted in away from the heels of HAPPY BAO BEI.

C Schofield was advised that whilst the Stewards were satisfied that BOLSHOI BALLET had not fully established running to the inside of GENEROUS BOBO, nonetheless he must exercise care when shifting ground.

Passing the 300 Metres, LOTUS BREEZE shifted out and bumped LOVELY DELOVELY which got its head on the side and was inclined to lay in.

After this, LOVELY DELOVELY continued to lay in and proved difficult to ride.

Near the 150 Metres, LAMAROSA raced tight outside IMPERIAL CHAMPION which shifted out away from HAPPY BAO BEI.

A veterinary inspection of IMPERIAL CHAMPION immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of LAMAROSA immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

HAPPY YEAH YEAH and WAH MAY BABY were sent for sampling.
