Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Marvel Hero quickened nicely after pulling out following a rails run behind midfield to win going away 100m out for a second time from as many Valley runs this term. He remains one to follow over this course. Happy Spirit continued his fine Valley form despite a rise in grade to close off well to finish a clear second following a midfield run. He's always a chance over the mile or 1,800m at this track. Speedy Longwah stayed on well travelling outside Happy Spirit to fill a placing to continue his honest form over this course. Mr Genuine just out-finished Goodheart Success after travelling near the back to snare a Quartet spot. He's at his best off a good pace over the 1,200m. Goodheart Success came on strongly from the tail of the field. He's given a decent sight in two mile runs on both surfaces this term and appears to be bottoming out in the handicaps. Eastern Express found nothing following a box-seat run in his Valley debut. The fast pace was his undoing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (370)-CHATER HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650Metres

Shortly after the start, DYNAMISM shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of GOODHEART SUCCESS.

DYNAMISM was then shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier.

Also from wide barriers, MR GENUINE, GOODHEART SUCCESS and DUKEDOM were all steadied in the early stages and shifted across to obtain cover.

A short distance after the start, EASTERN EXPRESS and SPEEDY LONGWAH bumped.

Near the 1600 Metres, SPEEDY LONGWAH raced tight between FANTASTIC KAKA and EASTERN EXPRESS which shifted in.

In this incident, FANTASTIC KAKA became unbalanced when bumped by SPEEDY LONGWAH.

FANTASTIC KAKA then shifted out, resulting in SPEEDY LONGWAH being crowded for room and taken out onto EASTERN EXPRESS which also became unbalanced.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, MCQUEEN was left racing wide and without cover.

MCQUEEN was allowed to improve its position to settle outside the lead near the 1000 Metres.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, GOODHEART SUCCESS was crowded for room inside MR GENUINE (N Rawiller) which shifted in.

N Rawiller was advised to exercise more care.

Approaching the 700 Metres, DUKEDOM was taken wider by MR GENUINE which improved to the outside of the heels of DYNAMISM.

Near the 550 Metres, GOODHEART SUCCESS momentarily raced tight inside MR GENUINE which lay in.

At the entrance to the Straight, DYNAMISM was shifted out away from the heels of EASTERN EXPRESS.

Approaching the 400 Metres, HAPPY SPIRIT and SPEEDY LONGWAH raced tight as HAPPY SPIRIT attempted to shift out away from the heels of MCQUEEN.

Passing the 150 Metres, DYNAMISM was steadied when disappointed for running between FANTASTIC KAKA and MR GENUINE which, when improving into tight running inside PACKING LLAREGYB, was taken in by that horse before PACKING LLAREGYB was shifted out to relieve the tightening to MR GENUINE.

Close to the finishing line, PACKING LLAREGYB and GOODHEART SUCCESS raced tight.

Because of this, both PACKING LLAREGYB and GOODHEART SUCCESS were not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

After the race, S de Sousa stated that, in his opinion, EASTERN EXPRESS raced awkwardly at Happy Valley at its first time of asking.

He said the horse was unbalanced when rounding the turns and because of this was not comfortable during the race.

A veterinary inspection of EASTERN EXPRESS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of SANTA FE SUN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MARVEL HERO and HAPPY SPIRIT were sent for sampling.
