Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Little Bird shot clear approaching the 200m after leading narrowly outside Esuper for a second Valley win this term. His natural gate speed is a huge advantage over this course. Dragon Pioneer kept on nicely for second tracking the leaders one off the fence. He was suited by the draw over his favourite course and distance. Specked late Goko just out-finished Noble Delight for third travelling one-off behind midfield. It was his best run in eight starts after an opening day win at Sha Tin. Noble Delight was short of room late which likely cost him a placing after making his run on the fence behind midfield. He's itching to salute. E-super succumbed 100m out after sharing the lead on the fence. He's not too far off a bottom. Most Beautiful stayed on without ever looking a chance following a one-off run in midfield. Happy Victory couldn't lift sitting handy with cover from a wide gate in his Valley debut. Prefer him at Sha Tin.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (440) - TAI PO HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Meters

MOST BEAUTIFUL began only fairly.

From the outside barrier, DEMONS ROCK was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

FAIRY TWINS and NOBLE DELIGHT were also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

A short distance after the start, DIAMOND MASTER was steadied away from the heels of DRAGON PIONEER which shifted out when being ridden along.

Passing the 500 Metres, DIAMOND MASTER was awkwardly placed behind CALIFORNIA GUNGHO.

C Y Ho (DRAGON PIONEER) dropped his whip approaching the 100 Metres.

Near the 50 Metres, MOST BEAUTIFUL and HAPPY VICTORY raced tight.

Over the concluding stages, NOBLE DELIGHT raced very tight outside E-SUPER (N Callan) which shifted out under pressure.

N Callan was advised that in similar circumstances he should stop riding and straighten his mounts.

In this incident, NOBLE DELIGHT was struck over the nose by the whip of N Callan.

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

LITTLE BIRD and DRAGON PIONEER were sent for sampling.
