Recap by phillip woo

Second favourite Garlic Yeah quickened nicely near the inside after travelling third from the rear to claim victory 200m out. The rise in trip, switch to the Valley and Joao Moreira was the key to a first top-three result from nine starts following a couple of improved mile efforts. He can win another. High Speed Metro came on well near the inside after getting steadied 600m out travelling at the rear to grab second despite an unfavourable pace. He continues his good form of late. Malayan Pearl stayed on well following a handy run for a placing. He needed this run following a November failure with blood in his trachea and will have to be one to keep safe when next stepping out over the 1,800m or 2,000m at either track. Thumped late at a price, Gorgeous Again produced one of his better efforts despite being pestered for the lead from the start to his outside by Safari Magic but will need to back this run up with another positive effort. The bird had already flown for favourite Rock The Tree who never gained a clear run travelling in midfield until the 150m and can be forgiven for this run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (262)-SHAM SHUI PO HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

FRANCE VALOUR was slow to begin.

ISLAND FLYER began awkwardly.

GORGEOUS AGAIN and SWEET BEAN bumped on jumping.

Shortly after the start, GARLIC YEAH got its head on the side and shifted in towards the hindquarters of ROCK THE TREE.

MY FOLKS and HIGH SPEED METRO were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 1550 Metres, SWEET BEAN shifted in and bumped FRANCE VALOUR, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

Passing the 1200 Metres, HIGH SPEED METRO momentarily raced in restricted room inside GARLIC YEAH.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, MY FOLKS was checked away from the heels of SWEET BEAN after getting its head on the side and shifting out away from GARLIC YEAH.

HIGH SPEED METRO, which was following, got its head up when being checked away from the heels of MY FOLKS in consequence.

Rounding the Home Turn, MALAYAN PEARL was steadied away from the heels of SAFARI MAGIC which was taken out by GORGEOUS AGAIN which got its head on the side and lay out.

ROCK THE TREE had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Passing the 300 Metres, ISLAND FLYER shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of INNOVATIVE WINNER which became unbalanced.

Near the 250 Metres, MY FOLKS was shifted to the outside of WIN CHANCE after being disappointed in running between that horse and FRANCE VALOUR.

After this, MY FOLKS lay out under pressure.

Throughout the race, FRANCE VALOUR travelled wide and without cover.

After the winning post, O Doleuze dismounted from INNOVATIVE WINNER.

INNOVATIVE WINNER was subsequently examined by the Veterinary Officer who said the horse had lost its left hind plate (approaching the 1400 Metres) with a resultant injury to the outside of the left hind foot.

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

A veterinary inspection of ROCK THE TREE and SAFARI MAGIC immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ROCK THE TREE, GARLIC YEAH and HIGH SPEED METRO were sent for sampling.
