Recap by phillip woo

Well-tried late Island Winner got up near the 100m following a dream run in the boxseat for a first win at his eighth start. He enjoyed a switch to the Valley at his second start in the grade and it wasn't a strong form race. Roman Odyssey overhauled favourite Excel Delight in the final stages for second after a one-out, one-back run. He was well rated on some past minor placings. Excel Delight grudgingly gave way after straight near two lengths on top after finding the front 750m out. He's made a good impression in back-to-back runs following a downgrade. La Bomba gave way 100m out after stalking the speed one off from a wide gate. It was another honest effort over this Valley trip but the gate cost him on this occasion. Whistle Up ran on steadily to nearly fill the frame following a midfield run on the fence. It was a return to form on his past few starts. Exponents ran on without menacing after making his run one from the back.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (237) - FRIGATEBIRD HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Meters

When being unloaded from the transporter after arriving at Happy Valley from Sha Tin, EVER STRONG became fractious, slipped and got down.

Acting on veterinary advice that EVER STRONG had sustained a laceration to the left elbow and was not suitable to race, that horse was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, EVER STRONG will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

The Veterinary Officer reported that on arrival at the Start CHEEKY BEE was found to be lame in the right hind leg and accordingly was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, CHEEKY BEE was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, CHEEKY BEE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

EXCEL DELIGHT began awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, EXPONENTS shifted out and bumped FLYING MONKEY.

Also shortly after the start, JIMSON THE DRAGON shifted out and was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of ISLAND WINNER.

From a wide barrier, EXPONENTS was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 950 Metres, FLYING MONKEY momentarily raced in restricted room inside LA BOMBA which, after shifting in, was then directed out to relieve the tightening to FLYING MONKEY.

Near the 850 Metres, JIMSON THE DRAGON and BANDY bumped, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

Near the 750 Metres, CHARITYDREAM was awkwardly placed outside BANDY which continued to race tight outside JIMSON THE DRAGON.

After the 700 Metres, FLYING MONKEY was left racing wide and without cover and making the turns after the 600 Metres lay out.

WHISTLE UP made the turn after the 600 Metres awkwardly and shifted out, resulting in JIMSON THE DRAGON being bumped and becoming unbalanced.

CHARITYDREAM, which was following JIMSON THE DRAGON, shifted out away from the heels of that horse in consequence, resulting in EXPONENTS being hampered and taken wider.

Approaching the 200 Metres, LA BOMBA was awkwardly placed outside the heels of ISLAND WINNER (K C Leung) when being taken out by that horse which shifted out under pressure.

K C Leung was reprimanded and advised in similar circumstances he would be expected to stop riding and straighten his mounts.
