Recap by phillip woo

In another race favouring those in front, favourite Amazing Star easily went pillar to post in a class record time after jumping alertly to lead as expected from gate seven. Zero Hedge kept on well following a one-out, one-back run but was no match for the winner. He does appear from his past two starts to have bottomed out. Winning Together closed nicely to nearly snatch second after a patient ride fourth from the rear following a tardy break. Oriental Elite made some ground to fill the frame after saving ground in midfield. He rarely produces a bad run over this Valley trip. Plikclone ran on reasonably well from near the back from a wide gate. It was an encouraging debut performance but he should be showing his true colours down the line over a further trip. Precious Sweetie was disappointed after a one-off run fore of midfield. He ran well below what he's capable of over this Valley trip. Voyage King broke down 150m out after a box-seat run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (182) - DANDELION HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

ZERO HEDGE shifted in at the start and bumped the hindquarters of VOYAGE KING.

THE ABRAXAS shifted out at the start and inconvenienced EXCEPTIONAL DESIRE.

FLYING MONKEY began awkwardly and then from the outside barrier was shifted across behind runners.

Also from wide barriers, PLIKCLONE and WINNING TOGETHER were shifted across behind runners to obtain cover in the early stages.

Making the turn after the 1000 Metres, VOYAGE KING and ZERO HEDGE momentarily raced tight inside PRECIOUS SWEETIE which got its head on the side and hung in despite the efforts of its rider.

Approaching the 900 Metres, VOYAGE KING got its head on the side, shifted in of its own accord and became unbalanced.

ZERO HEDGE travelled keenly in the middle stages.

THE ABRAXAS travelled wide and without cover until after the 600 Metres.

ORIENTAL ELITE became unbalanced near the 550 Metres and passing the 500 Metres was awkwardly placed close to the heels of VOYAGE KING.

Approaching the 100 Metres, VOYAGE KING went amiss.

The rider of PRECIOUS SWEETIE, which was racing outside VOYAGE KING at the time, immediately took evasive measures.

GENERAL CASTLEDALE, which was following, was shifted out abruptly away from VOYAGE KING.

A veterinary inspection of PRECIOUS SWEETIE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

AMAZING STAR and ZERO HEDGE were sent for sampling.
