Recap by phillip woo

Breeders' Star came on strongly after settling one off in fourth from a tricky gate to win going away 60m out for a second trip success this term. He can remain competitive up in grade over this trip from a proper draw. Thumped late to start favourite, Circuit King was hustled to lead from a wide gate and grudgingly gave way late. He'll be winning if he remains in the grade. Early favourite Golden Achiever closed off well after travelling worse than midfield to make it close for second. It wasn't a surprise performance with a return to the Valley after three tough runs at Sha Tin and he will be saluting shortly. Smart Delight only held his ground over the final 150m after enjoying a box-seat run. It was a decent effort off a long break following a downgrade and he might be ready to turn his career around. Never Better got going late after travelling fifth from the rear to just miss a Quartet spot. He's not a prolific winner but rarely throws a bad race over this Valley trip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (365)-CLUB STREET HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

RADIANT STEED began awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, SPARKLING TALENT was crowded for room between BREEDERS' STAR which shifted out and AMAZING FEELING which shifted in after being bumped by HAYMAKER.

After this, HAYMAKER was steadied and shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier.

Also shortly after the start, GOLDEN ACHIEVER and SMART DELIGHT bumped.

From a wide barrier, NASHASHUK was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 950 Metres, AMAZING FEELING was awkwardly placed close to the heels of RADIANT STEED.

Approaching the 900 Metres, NEVER BETTER, when racing three wide, was steadied and shifted into a position behind GOLDEN ACHIEVER to obtain cover.

Throughout the race, RADIANT STEED travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, H W Lai stated that NATURAL TEAM was inclined to lay out rounding the turns as it had done previously.

He said at the entrance to the Straight NATURAL TEAM shifted out and as he was commencing to test the horse, he received a precautionary call from the rider of the horse positioned outside NATURAL TEAM.

He said he therefore straightened NATURAL TEAM and rebalanced the horse before placing it under full pressure, however, NATURAL TEAM did not finish off the race.

BREEDERS' STAR and CIRCUIT KING were sent for sampling.
