Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Super Form came on well after travelling fore of midfield to wear down Premium Champion 80m out for a second first-up win from three runs over this Valley trip despite tipping the scales 31 pounds heavier. He'll certainly come on for this run and remains one to follow at a mile and further over this course. Premium Champion nearly stole the race after taking off from the back to lead 650m out. He touched bottom with an easy Class Five win at his final start and can continue to work his way higher this term over a mile to 2,000m. Enormous Honour got going at the 700m after travelling near the back to fill a placing in his first run in the class. He goes well at both tracks and will be winning shortly. Crown Avenue stuck on reasonably after chasing Sparkling Sword's moderate pace. He's ready for a return to his preferred dirt surface. Late-fancied favourite Works Of Art kept on evenly following a box-seat run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (33) - NEW YORK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Meters

On arrival at the Start, K C Leung expressed concern regarding the action of SPINNING DANCER.

SPINNING DANCER was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said the horse was lame in the right hind leg and as such was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of SPINNING DANCER.

Before being allowed to race again, SPINNING DANCER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

NEWSWIRE FREE began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, ENORMOUS HONOUR and PREMIUM CHAMPION were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, SPARKLING SWORD lay in, brushed the running rail and became unbalanced.

At the entrance to the Straight, WORKS OF ART shifted out and was awkwardly placed inside the heels of SUPER FORM.

When questioned, M L Yeung stated that he was instructed to take advantage of TRENDY WIN's inside barrier and have the horse positioned in about midfield if possible.

He said whilst he was asked to take advantage of barrier 1, he was also instructed not to make too much use of the horse in the early stages and have it racing where it was comfortable so that it was able to finish off the race.

He said after beginning well TRENDY WIN was able to obtain a position behind the leader SPARKLING SWORD.

He said when a margin developed between SPARKLING SWORD and TRENDY WIN approaching the 1300 Metres, he felt that he would have had to make some use of TRENDY WIN to continue to follow SPARKLING SWORD and therefore prevent WORKS OF ART from shifting in in front of TRENDY WIN.

Having in mind that he was asked to ride the horse in about a midfield position, he did not believe it was in the best interests of TRENDY WIN to ride the horse along and therefore he allowed WORKS OF ART to cross TRENDY WIN at the 1200 Metres.

He added at all stages TRENDY WIN travelled comfortably and after initially responding well in the early part of the Straight the horse then finished off the race only one-paced over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of WORKS OF ART immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

WORKS OF ART, SUPER FORM and PREMIUM CHAMPION were sent for sampling.
