Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Ruletheroost just held off Management Star after shooting to the front from Salto Olimpico 100m out following a one-off run in midfield to ring up a second win from his past three starts. Management Star dashed nicely when gaining a clear run after repeatedly bumping with Above approaching the 200m following a midfield run on the fence. He's been racing well all season long. Salto Olimpico wouldn't go down without a fight after rolling to the lead from gate five. He thrives over this Valley trip. Enjoy Life had his chance following a box-seat run in his first try over the Valley 1,800m. The trip was a bit too far. Plunged late Good Days just failed to fill the frame with a move one from the right travelling behind midfield. He hasn't produced a bad run in his 11 starts this term but struggles to find that extra gear. Sangria was getting going late without menacing near the outside following a patient ride second from the back. He's still trying to find his mark.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (571) - DONGZHIMEN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Meters

HOLY UNICORN was withdrawn on 9.4.19 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter ENJOY LIFE.

Before being allowed to race again, HOLY UNICORN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

MANAGEMENT STAR began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of ABOVE.

GARLIC YEAH shifted out at the start and inconvenienced GOOD DAYS and KING'S MAN.

LUCKY SHINY DAY, which was racing outside KING'S MAN, got its head on the side and shifted out away from that horse, resulting in SMART BABY being crowded for room inside SANGRIA.

After this, from outside barriers, KING'S MAN, LUCKY SHINY DAY, SMART BABY and SANGRIA were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Despite being ridden along for some distance in the early stages, GARLIC YEAH failed to muster speed.

At the entrance to the Straight, SANGRIA and GOOD DAYS bumped.

At the 300 Metres, MANAGEMENT STAR (C Y Ho) was shifted to the outside of LITTLE ISLAND in an attempt to improve outside that horse and inside ABOVE.

As MANAGEMENT STAR shifted out, LITTLE ISLAND, which was racing in advance of MANAGEMENT STAR, shifted out marginally.

This resulted in MANAGEMENT STAR and ABOVE bumping on a number of occasions as both horses were unbalanced due to the initial contact.

After obtaining running to the outside of LITTLE ISLAND near the 250 Metres, ABOVE and MANAGEMENT STAR continued to make contact on a number of occasions due to both horses shifting slight ground when unbalanced.

C Y Ho was reprimanded and told to ensure that he exercises due care when shifting out to obtain clear running so that undue pressure is not put on other runners.

In the Straight, GARLIC YEAH lay in under pressure and was reluctant to shift to the outside of ENJOY LIFE.

This resulted in GARLIC YEAH not being able to be fully tested at times in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of ABOVE immediately following the race found that horse to have sustained a small wound to the inside of the left front pastern.

A veterinary inspection of LUCKY SHINY DAY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

RULETHEROOST and MANAGEMENT STAR were sent for sampling.
