Recap by phillip woo

Sparkling Dragon came with a bold move after slotting one-off behind midfield at the 800m to snatch victory in the dying stages. Early favourite Buoyant Boy did everything right but get the win after shooting to the front 100m out following a midfield run on the fence. He responds nicely under Zac Purton. Magic Legend came on strongly widest out from near the back to make it close on the wire. He's been a disappointment but has been threatening to score in recent outings over this course. Joyful Union produced a ducking- and-weaving run to come from last after a tardy break to snatch fourth carrying a big weight. He might have more points in hand after a last-start win. Shining Ace kept on one-paced after being hard ridden to hold a prominent spot. He was set too much of a task stepping up in grade with a switch to the Valley. Harrier Jet wasn't beaten far in the end after a deep run without cover in midfield. He's quite honest over this Valley trip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (785) - LAI CHI CHONG HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

CALIFORNIA ARGENT began awkwardly and then shortly after the start was crowded for room between JUMBO PRIZE which shifted in initially and HARRIER JET which then shifted out.

When racing very wide, MAGIC LEGEND was steadied shortly after the start to obtain cover.

JOYFUL UNION was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Despite being vigorously ridden in the early stages, SPARKLING DRAGON failed to muster speed.

Making the turn near the 1050 Metres, GALLANT RETURN and JUMBO PRIZE raced tight due to both horses shifting ground.

STAR LUCK made the turn near the 1050 Metres awkwardly and shifted out, resulting in SHINING GEM being inconvenienced.

Near the 900 Metres, SHINING ACE (J Moreira) shifted in and crowded HARRIET JET momentarily.

After SHINING ACE was shifted out to relieve the tightening to HARRIER JET, HARRIER JET was again crowded for room near the 850 Metres between SHINING ACE and SHINING GEM which shifted out away from the heels of GALLANT RETURN.

J Moreira was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

SPARKLING DRAGON, which was racing outside HARRIER JET, was inconvenienced in consequence.

Then after the 700 Metres, HARRIER JET was left racing wide and without cover.

Approaching the 500 Metres, SHINING GEM raced in restricted room between BUOYANT BOY and HARRIER JET.

Passing the 300 Metres, GALLANT RETURN was shifted in away from the heels of STAR LUCK.

GALLANT RETURN then raced in restricted room inside STAR LUCK passing the 250 Metres.

After the race, HARRIER JET was found to have blood at the right nostril.

An endoscopic examination of HARRIER JET found that horse not to have bled.

A veterinary inspection of STAR LUCK immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

JUMBO PRIZE, SPARKLING DRAGON and BUOYANT BOY were sent for sampling.
