Recap by phillip woo

In a thriller, Blocker Dee lunged late following a handy run along the fence to put the head down to finish level for the win with Sea Jade to continue his fine form over this Valley trip. He's never one to omit over this course and distance. Firming favourite Sea Jade reclaimed the front 200m out after handing up the lead to Molly's Jade Star and kept on gamely carrying a light weight to remain unbeaten in his four starts over this course and distance despite a rise in class. He's a horse for a course and the winning won't be over yet. Lucky Year stayed on well travelling worse than midfield to finish a close third. The difference in the end was the big weight. Archippus finished strongly travelling third from the rear after copping a check 500m out. He might have gone close to winning in a trouble-free run. Almababy faded following a prominent run without cover. He had excuses but may be near his mark on this surface though did go close to winning two back on the dirt which is an option. Plunged late, Molly's Jade Star was on his tippy toes 150m out after being hustled to lead 700m out from a wide gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (423)-THE HAPPY VALLEY TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 1 - 1200Metres

BORN IN CHINA was withdrawn on 14.2.17 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore).

Before being allowed to race again, BORN IN CHINA will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

ALMABABY began very awkwardly and shifted in, resulting in ARCHIPPUS being steadied way from the heels of that horse.

After this, ARCHIPPUS got its head up on a number of occasions when being steadied to obtain cover.

APOLLO'S CHOICE and LUCKY YEAR bumped at the start.

LUCKY YEAR then shifted out and bumped KEY WITNESS.

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

HAPPY SURVEYS was also steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

MOLLY'S JADE STAR, from the outside barrier, was ridden along for a considerable distance in the early stages to obtain a forward position and raced wide and without cover until after the 800 Metres.

Making the first turn near the 1050 Metres, APOLLO'S CHOICE was crowded for room between BLOCKER DEE and LUCKY YEAR which, after shifting in, then got its head on the side and shifted in further away from ALMABABY.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, STRATHMORE shifted in and bumped ALMABABY.

When the tempo of the race steadied after the 600 Metres, APOLLO'S CHOICE was checked away from the heels of BLOCKER DEE.

LUCKY YEAR, which was racing outside APOLLO'S CHOICE, then raced in restricted room between that horse and STRATHMORE which got its head on the side and lay in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of ALMABABY.

ARCHIPPUS, which was following, got its head up for some distance when being checked away from the heels of LUCKY YEAR.

Then passing the 500 Metres, LUCKY YEAR momentarily raced in restricted room between APOLLO'S CHOICE which continued to be awkwardly placed close to the heels of BLOCKER DEE and STRATHMORE which continued to lay in.

In this incident, APOLLO'S CHOICE became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by LUCKY YEAR.

Passing the 400 Metres, KEY WITNESS shifted out after being checked away from the heels of STRATHMORE.

At the entrance to the Straight, ARCHIPPUS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of LUCKY YEAR.

Passing the 200 Metres, ARCHIPPUS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ALMABABY when being shifted out from behind that horse to obtain clear running.

After the race, it was reported that ALMABABY had bled from both nostrils.

BLOCKER DEE and SEA JADE were sent for sampling.
