Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Yee Chong Baby kept on gamely after working his way to the front 180m out to win following a pace-stalking run outside Dream Come True to win his debut. Magic Legend flashed home late one from the right to finish a close second after settling one off worse than midfield 600m out. He has been a disappointment but is very well rated off some past wins. Healthy Luck stuck on well for a placing following a prominent run. He does appear from his past two runs to be back on track. Golden Dash zipped home late after laying in under pressure to nearly place after a patient ride fourth from the rear in his first run back following a bleeding attack. Fairy Twins had his chance chasing the leaders. He needs to find an easier Class Three. Hong Kong Bet made some ground without menacing from beyond midfield. Frustrated faded travelling deep without cover fore of midfield. He had excuses but this wasn't going to be an easy test.

GENERAL: 1.

17 April 2019 Happy Valley Racemeeting - Race 7 (591) The Stewards tonight interviewed Mr A S Cruz, the trainer of CIRCUIT GLORY, regarding the instructions he provided to K Teetan in this race.

Mr Cruz confirmed that he had instructed Jockey Teetan to ride the horse positively and lead given that it had previously been successful when ridden in this manner.

He said he studied the field and believed the CIRCUIT GLORY would have more speed than other runners in the race and felt that the horse would be able to obtain the lead without having to be hard ridden to do so.

He said as DIVINE UNICORN was having its first race start in Hong Kong, he was unaware of that horse's racing pattern and was of the opinion that DIVINE UNICORN contesting for the lead had required Jockey Teetan to make more use of CIRCUIT GLORY in the early and middle stages to obtain the lead which resulted in the race being run at a tempo faster than anticipated.

He added however he was satisfied that K Teetan had ridden CIRCUIT GLORY in accordance with his instructions.
