Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, long-time leader California Legend kept finding to just prevail after being pressured by Gala Night for the opening 500m. He has been racing well and the switch to the Valley 1,800m worked out favourably. Post-time favourite Dionysus Collin flashed home to snatch second sitting third last in the run after getting squeezed out at the start. He's a winner waiting to happen over this course at 1,800m and further. Gala Night stuck on well after serving it up to the winner early on in a pace-stalking role. He's starting to get the hang of things in his past two starts. Early favourite Cheerful Star finished a close fourth but did have every chance following a box-seat run. Old-timer Acclaimed Light had to take hold 50m out after a handy run. He should have finished closer. Tangmere closed off reasonably well near the outside after making his run towards the rear from a tricky gate. He seems to act best over this course and a bottom is not far away.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (376) - OI KWAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Meters

CALIFORNIA LEGEND shifted in at the start and hampered YOU HAVE MY WORD.

DIONYSUS COLLIN and PRETTY BAUHINIA (H N Wong) were badly crowded for room on jumping between TANGMERE and CHEERFUL STAR which got its head on the side and shifted out abruptly.

After this, TANGMERE was steadied to obtain cover.

After the race, H N Wong stated that after being crowded for room, PRETTY BAUHINIA was reluctant to stretch out despite being vigorously ridden along and it was not until after the 800 Metres that PRETTY BAUHINIA was able to obtain a position closer to the main body of the field.

From the outside barrier, DYNASTA was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

When being steadied outside CALIFORNIA LEGEND after the 1400 Metres, GALA NIGHT initially proved very difficult to settle and got its head up until being shifted in behind CALIFORNIA LEGEND near the 1200 Metres.

Approaching the 400 Metres, KING'S MAN was crowded for room inside ACCLAIMED LIGHT which, after improving to the inside of GOOD DAYS, raced tight inside that horse which shifted in marginally after coming under pressure.

Approaching the 100 Metres, ACCLAIMED LIGHT was directed to the inside of CALIFORNIA LEGEND in an attempt to obtain clear running inside that horse.

Near the 100 Metres, CHEERFUL STAR was bumped by ACCLAIMED LIGHT which shifted in when disappointed for running inside CALIFORNIA LEGEND which shifted in.

ACCLAIMED LIGHT was then awkwardly placed close to the heels of CALIFORNIA LEGEND until near the 75 Metres.

Close to the finishing line, ACCLAIMED LIGHT raced tight inside GALA NIGHT.

A veterinary inspection of KING'S MAN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

CALIFORNIA LEGEND and DIONYSUS COLLIN were sent for sampling.
