Recap by phillip woo

Gracious Ryder stormed home with one wider out after settling one off the fence beyond midfield to grab a maiden win in the last stride at his fourth start. He's always shown promise in his trackwork and the switch to the Valley with Matthew Poon's 10-pound claim was the right mix. Good Companion stayed on very well after being left without cover one off in fourth 750m out to make it close in the end. It was a better run with the blinkers coming off and he might be able to get away with a race before season's end over this Valley trip. Post-time favourite Grace Heart was collared late after hitting the front 200m out following a box-seat seat run. It was a good effort in defeat carrying top weight and he should remain competitive when next stepping out. Pearl Warm Warm ran on to finish a distant fourth following a midfield run. The big weight was a hurdle and the mile might suit him better. Dr Race rallied late after settling near the back from a wide gate. He's actually hit the line well in his past two runs from outside alleys and needs to be kept safe when he draws a proper gate. Sunny Orient made some ground without menacing after travelling behind midfield following a slow break.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (729)-LYNDHURST HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

SUNNY ORIENT began only fairly.

SUPER DUKE shifted out at the start and bumped GRACE HEART.

TRENDIFUL was crowded for room on jumping between GOOD COMPANION and RUMINARE which shifted in.

In this incident, GOOD COMPANION became unbalanced after being bumped by TRENDIFUL.

TRENDIFUL lost its left front plate shortly after the start.

From wide barriers, DR RACE and SCARBOROUGH FAIR were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Throughout the race, OUR HONOUR travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of LOVE CHUNGHWA immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and an endoscopic examination also showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, LOVE CHUNGHWA will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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