Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Optimism came on nicely with two wider out after settling one off in midfield following a sluggish break to get up 80m out for a first win at his 27th start. Giddy Giddy dictated the running, cornered near two lengths on top and just held off Intellectual Glide for second. Intellectual Glide ran on well four deep following a midfield run underneath the winner. Oriental Fantasia grudgingly gave way after pestering Giddy Giddy for the lead. Sparkling Talent closed off nicely with one wider out after a deep run without cover near the back to just miss a Quartet spot in his first run at this level. Specked at odds, Precious Gem was getting going late with three wider out from a position near the back. Highland Dragon came up flat following a handy run with cover. Punted late, Forever Fun failed to respond in the straight drive following a prominent run along the fence. Super King Star never ran on after travelling second from the rear despite a return to the Valley with cheek pieces.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (697)-PO TOI HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

Shortly after the start, OPTIMISM and PRECIOUS GEM bumped.

PRECIOUS GEM was then ridden along, however, failed to muster speed.

After travelling a short distance, SUPER KING STAR was steadied when crowded for room between HIGHLAND DRAGON which shifted in and REAL FIT which, after beginning only fairly, shifted out away from ORIENTAL FANTASIA.

This resulted in SUPER KING STAR racing back in the field and travelling wide and without cover for the majority of the race.

Despite being vigorously ridden along in the early stages, MIGHTY GAINS failed to muster speed.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, MIGHTY GAINS was steadied when crowded for room between PRECIOUS GEM which shifted out and SPARKLING TALENT which was momentarily steadied away from the heels of HIGHLAND DRAGON (G Lerena) which shifted in when not properly clear.

SUPER KING STAR was inconvenienced in consequence.

G Lerena was advised to exercise more care.

Approaching the 200 Metres, PRECIOUS GEM was shifted out away from the heels of REAL FIT.

Passing the 150 Metres, the whip of M L Yeung (INTELLECTUAL GLIDE) was knocked from his grasp by the whip of Apprentice H N Wong (ORIENTAL FANTASIA).

Throughout the race, GOOD LUCK MAN travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of FOREVER FUN and SUPER KING STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

OPTIMISM and GIDDY GIDDY were sent for sampling.
