Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Prince Harmony flew the start from a middle draw, established a near twolength lead upon straightening and kept up a strong gallop to make it three on the trot despite a rise in class. He's built for the Valley and can head higher. Jolly Convergence kept closing the gap late following a box-seat run. The 11-pound swing in the weights was the difference in the end and he isn't far off a sprint success over this course. Peace N Prosperity just held off The Supreme for a placing following a one-out, one-back run. He's always a chance over this Valley trip. The Supreme finished nicely after travelling fourth from the rear to snatch fourth on the wire from Back In Black. He has been knocking on the door in recent runs at both tracks and a win is on the horizon. Back In Black ran on steadily following a one-off run in midfield. He's come down plenty in the handicaps after winning five times last season and removal of the blinkers appeared to help. Victory Machine was never involved after badly missing the kick. It didn't matter, he's better in Class Four.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (712)-VIOLET HILL HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

VICTORY MACHINE began very awkwardly and lost a considerable amount of ground at the start and then for the majority of the race was detached from the field.

A veterinary inspection of VICTORY MACHINE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of VICTORY MACHINE was considered unacceptable.

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

PACKING STONES began only fairly.

WAYFOONG VINNIE shifted in at the start and bumped PEACE N PROSPERITY.

From the outside barrier, RIGHT HONOURABLE was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 850 Metres, WAYFOONG VINNIE proved very difficult to settle and for some distance approaching and passing the 800 Metres got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of BACK IN BLACK.

Passing the 600 Metres, THE SUPREME was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PACKING STONES.

In the early part of the Straight, PACKING STONES was awkwardly placed outside the heels of BACK IN BLACK which shifted out to obtain clear running.

Passing the 250 Metres, JOLLY CONVERGENCE raced tight inside TIMELY ARRIVED.

For the majority of the race, PACKING STONES travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, C Murray, the rider of MOST BEAUTIFUL, stated that he had been asked to ride the horse quietly in the early stages from barrier 10.

Mr C S Shum, the trainer of MOST BEAUTIFUL, will be interviewed regarding the instructions he provided to Jockey Murray prior to the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 11 June 2017.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that TIMELY ARRIVED had bled from both nostrils.

A veterinary inspection of PACKING STONES immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

PRINCE HARMONY and JOLLY CONVERGENCE were sent for sampling.
