Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Born In China won going away 150m out after a one-off run in midfield to beat a strong field. He loves this Valley trip. House Of Fun got up to grab second 100m out following a prominent run. He's honest but keeps finding one or a few too good sprinting at both tracks. California Whip closed off well to get the bob down late for third following a patient ride beyond midfield. He's stayed on well with a step back in distance to place in his past two starts but doesn't have much upside off his current mark. Topweight Archippus closed nicely to just miss a placing after losing some ground when inconvenienced 600m out travelling second from the rear. He doesn't know how to run a bad race over this course. Perpetual Joyance got going two from the right without menacing following a patient ride third from the rear. He's had a terrific campaign but the rise in class for this test was too rich.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (443) - THE HAPPY VALLEY TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 1 - 1200Meters

ARCHIPPUS was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

From the outside barrier, SUPER FLUKE was also steadied shortly after the start and shifted across behind runners.

SEVEN HEAVENS, which was being steadied to obtain cover, was bumped shortly after the start by MR GENUINE which shifted out.

In this incident, MR GENUINE became unbalanced due to the contact on the hindquarters by SEVEN HEAVENS.

Shortly after the start, SEA JADE and BORN IN CHINA bumped.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, ARCHIPPUS was crowded for room inside PERPETUAL JOYANCE which got its head on the side and lay in away from CALIFORNIA WHIP.

At this time, PERPETUAL JOYANCE was also awkwardly placed outside the heels of SEVEN HEAVENS which shifted out marginally making the turn.

After the 500 Metres, HOUSE OF FUN and BORN IN CHINA bumped due to HOUSE OF FUN being awkwardly placed close to the heels of SEA JADE which raced tight inside MR GENUINE.

Passing the 450 Metres, ARCHIPPUS got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SEVEN HEAVENS (M Chadwick) which was being steadied so as to shift out away from the heels of HOUSE OF FUN.

When SEVEN HEAVENS shifted out, PERPETUAL JOYANCE was shifted out away from that horse and across the heels of CALIFORNIA WHIP.

SUPER FLUKE, which was following PERPETUAL JOYANCE, was directed away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

M Chadwick was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

For some distance approaching and passing the 200 Metres, SEA JADE raced tight inside E-SUPER when improving into tight running inside that horse.
