Recap by phillip woo

Well-punted late, Perpetual Joyance has been sparingly raced with soundness issues but made it back-to-back wins when getting up 50m out after peeling out at the 200m following a midfield run. If he pulls up well, he should remain competitive on either surface up in class off a lightweight. Trump finished nicely two from the right after travelling third from the rear. He was suited by the tempo up front but will be winning shortly if he remains in the grade. Bumble Baby kept grinding away after peeling outside the struggling favourite Beauty Connection at the 150m to place following a box-seat run. He might be a better runner next campaign when a year older. Beauty Connection attacked the leader Rugby Diamond, gained a clear margin 300m out and was on his tippy toes 100m out. He's performing consistently over this Valley trip but isn't smart enough to win near the top of the weights. Kwaichung Brothers came on well after straightening one from the back. The tempo aided him but it was a clearly better run at only his fifth start. Second-time starter Lunar Zephyr kept on all right after being posted near the speed without cover until the 600m from a wide gate. He's headed in the right direction.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (474)-LOCKHART HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Metres

HORSE SUPREMO began very awkwardly and lost ground.

Shortly after the start, TRUMP was steadied to obtain cover.

FOXBAT became unbalanced shortly after the start when bumped on the hindquarters by KWAICHUNG BROTHERS which was taken out by BUMBLE BABY.

In this incident, KWAICHUNG BROTHERS was hampered when crowded for room between FOXBAT and BUMBLE BABY.

After travelling a short distance, HORSE SUPREMO shifted out away from the heels of BEEKELY, resulting in CROWN AVENUE being inconvenienced.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, BEEKELY was hampered when crowded for room between TRENDIFUL which lay in and BUMBLE BABY which got its head on the side and hung out making the turn.

Near the 450 Metres, BEEKELY got its head on the side and lay in away from the heels of TRENDIFUL, resulting in FOXBAT being checked when crowded for room outside PERPETUAL JOYANCE.

In the early part of the Straight, BUMBLE BABY was held up for clear running.

Passing the 250 Metres, BEEKELY shifted out marginally and bumped TRUMP which was inclined to lay in, resulting in TRUMP becoming unbalanced.

Passing the 200 Metres, CROWN AVENUE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FOXBAT.

Near the 150 Metres, TRUMP shifted in abruptly under pressure, resulting in BEEKELY being momentarily inconvenienced.

Also near the 150 Metres, KWAICHUNG BROTHERS, which was finishing off the race well, was shifted in away from the heels of LUNAR ZEPHYR in an attempt to improve into tight running between LUNAR ZEPHYR and RUGBY DIAMOND.

Prior to being able to establish this run, KWAICHUNG BROTHERS was checked when RUGBY DIAMOND was taken out by BUMBLE BABY which got its head on the side and shifted out further after improving into tight running between RUGBY DIAMOND and BEAUTY CONNECTION.

Throughout the race, LUNAR ZEPHYR travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, J Moreira (TRENDIFUL) reported that after placing his mount under heavy pressure rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, TRENDIFUL commenced to give ground and did not feel comfortable in its action.

He said as he was concerned that the horse may have bled, he eased it down over the final 200 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of TRENDIFUL immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

The performance of TRENDIFUL, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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