Recap by phillip woo

Sichuan Dar was quietly ridden third from the rear from a wide gate, swung the final bend widest out and let down willingly to get up 50m out for an overdue win in his Valley debut after placing in three of eight earlier starts. He relished the strong tempo. Dynamism settled second from the rear, angled off a wall of horses for a clear run with three wider out at the 180m and finished strongly grab second in the shadows of the post. Magical Beauty settled one off the fence behind midfield to the outside of second favourite Photon Willie, got outside a one-paced Precision King five deep at the 150m and closed off steadily to grab a placing in the last stride. Photon Willie quickly improved from behind midfield along the inside to hit the front 150m out and was swamped in deep stretch. Precision King was pestered for the lead by favourite Superoi, cornered a half-length on top and grudgingly gave way. Superoi had to work to sit outside the leader without cover 1,100m, straightened three deep and was giving ground 100m out despite the light weight with a rise in class. Jun Huo had his chance after straightening five deep following a prominent run with cover and came up one-paced over the final 150m. Cheeky Too did get squeezed out soon after straightening after travelling deep without cover fore of midfield and kept on evenly thereafter. Simply Invincible was detached from a wide gate and eased down.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (724)-STAUNTON HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650Metres

JUN HUO shifted out at the start and bumped SUPEROI.

SILVERFIELD began awkwardly and lost ground.

From a wide barrier, DYNAMISM was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

SUPEROI was vigorously ridden along for a considerable distance in the early stages to obtain a forward position and passing the winning post on the first occasion raced tight inside TRAVEL RENYI (C Schofield) which shifted in.

Then near the 1300 Metres, SUPEROI, which continued to be ridden along, was steadied away from the heels of TRAVEL RENYI which again shifted in.

Having considered the circumstances of this incident, the Stewards issued a reprimand to C Schofield and advised him to ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room to runners to his inside in future.

Then after being crossed by TRAVEL RENYI near the 1300 Metres, SUPEROI was shifted out away from the heels of that horse, resulting in BALAY BALAY being taken wider.

SUPEROI then improved its position to be racing outside the lead.

After the 1200 Metres, BALAY BALAY was left racing wide and without cover.

After the 900 Metres, MAGICAL BEAUTY got its head on the side and lay in.

Approaching the 200 Metres, CHEEKY TOO momentarily raced tight between BALAY BALAY and TRAVEL RENYI.

Near the 100 Metres, MAGICAL BEAUTY was awkwardly placed outside the heels of PRECISION KING when improving outside that horse which got its head on the side and shifted out.

Passing the 50 Metres, JUN HUO was awkwardly placed inside the heels of DYNAMISM which raced tight inside SICHUAN DAR.

After the race, C Schofield state that he had to make too much use of TRAVEL RENYI in the early stages to cross runners to his inside.

He said TRAVEL RENYI was stepping up to the 1650 Metres tonight for the first occasion and after having not raced since March, the horse's condition gave out after the 600 Metres and commenced to give ground from this point onwards.

A veterinary inspection of TRAVEL RENYI immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

When questioned, K C Leung (SIMPLY INVINCIBLE) stated that after shifting his mount across behind runners from the outside barrier, SIMPLY INVINCIBLE, which was having its first start at Happy Valley tonight, became unbalanced in its action passing the winning post on the first occasion.

He said after this SIMPLY INVINCIBLE lost ground, so he commenced to ride his mount along prior to the 1300 Metres in an endeavour to have it join the main body of the field.

He said he continued to ride SIMPLY INVINCIBLE along for a considerable distance, however, the horse would not improve its position and again became unbalanced in its action.

He added after the 900 Metres he continued to ride SIMPLY INVINCIBLE along and as the horse had become detached from the field, he was concerned that it may be experiencing internal problems and for this reason he eased it out of the race.

A veterinary inspection of SIMPLY INVINCIBLE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of SIMPLY INVINCIBLE was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, SIMPLY INVINCIBLE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of CHEEKY TOO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SUPEROI, SICHUAN DAR and DYNAMISM were sent for sampling.
