Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Little Giant sat handy on a dirt track playing favouritism for those in the first half of the field and wore down Pablosky 100m out to win going away following to continue his rise in the handicaps despite a switch to the dirt. The dirt track He's destined for better things. Punted late Pablosky wouldn't go away without a fight after assuming the lead 200m out following a pace-stalking run from a wide gate. He can run a big race on turf as well but is a winner waiting to happen on this surface. Blocker Dee kept on a distant third following a prominent run. Outside his favourite Valley track, he does go well enough on this surface but may be on his mark. King Genki closed off reasonably well from midfield to snatch fourth but clearly requires a further trip on this surface. Perpetual Joyance closed well after travelling third from the rear. He hasn't been far off the mark in two of three outings this term but does seem to find a few too good at this level.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (117) - HAKKA CULTURE HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Meters

MEGA RED was withdrawn on 13.10.17 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (left front tendon injury) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter BLOCKER DEE (N Rawiller).

Before being allowed to race again, MEGA RED will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

PERPETUAL JOYANCE shifted out at the start and bumped DRAGON GENERAL, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

WAH MAY FRIEND and DRAGON MASTER bumped on jumping.

From wide barriers, both DRAGON MASTER and CONVINCIBLE were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain a position closer to the rail.

Near the 900 Metres, DRAGON GENERAL was steadied away from the heels of STAR OF YAN OI which shifted in.

Making the turn near the 700 Metres, LITTLE GIANT was awkwardly placed inside the heels of BLOCKER DEE (N Rawiller) which got its head on the side and lay in.

N Rawiller was advised to make every endeavour to provide runners on his inside with comfortable racing room.

JOYFUL MOMENTS, which was following, was inconvenienced in consequence.

Rounding the Home Turn, JOYFUL MOMENTS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of LITTLE GIANT.

Passing the 150 Metres, LITTLE GIANT raced in restricted room inside PABLOSKY.

PERPETUAL JOYANCE lay out under pressure in the Straight.

Throughout the race, WAH MAY FRIEND travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, K C Ng stated that he was instructed to be positive on JOYFUL MOMENTS and obtain a forward position.

He said because there were a number of horses in the race which had previously led, he was advised not to engage in a speed battle, rather to obtain a trailing position behind the leader if possible.

He said JOYFUL MOMENTS began awkwardly and got its head up and then, despite being ridden along, failed to muster speed and was crossed by LITTLE GIANT a short distance after the start which resulted in JOYFUL MOMENTS racing further back in the field than had been intended.

A veterinary inspection of DRAGON GENERAL and DRAGON MASTER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LITTLE GIANT and PABLOSKY were sent for sampling.
