Recap by phillip woo

Raging favourite Amazing Star was tested for the lead at times but quickly put them away after leading from a wide gate to comfortably ring up a third straight win over this course and distance despite a rise in class. He remains one to follow. Waldorf came from second last along the inside to fill the Quinella spot. He relished a return to the Valley 1,200m. Punted late Joyful Union ran on nicely from behind midfield to fill a placing. It was another fine effort following a win in a lesser grade. It was a vastly-improved run by Sunset Watch, who nearly got up for a placing after settling last until the head of the straight from a wide gate trying the Valley for the first time. Mr Croissant stayed on without menacing widest out after a one-off run in midfield. He appears from his past few starts to be on or near his mark. Loving A Boom made a mild bid travelling behind midfield on the fence. He's capable but not reliable.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (379) - STUBBS HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Meters

JOYFUL UNION and BEAUTY AMIGO were crowded for room on jumping between MR CROISSANT and LOVING A BOOM which shifted out.

In this incident, JOYFUL UNION became badly unbalanced and lost ground and bumped the hindquarters of BEAUTY AMIGO which in turn bumped MR CROISSANT which became unbalanced.

GUNNISON began awkwardly.

From a wide barrier, SUNSET WATCH was steadied early stages and shifted across behind runners.

GRACEANDMERCY and WALDORF were also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Near the 1050 Metres, MR SO AND SO became unbalanced and lost ground when crowded for room between CUE THE MUSIC and MR CROISSANT which shifted out.

Then near the 1000 Metres, MR SO AND SO was steadied away from the heels of CUE THE MUSIC which shifted in marginally when awkwardly placed close to the heels of GENTLE BREEZE.

Near the 850 Metres, LOVING A BOOM was momentarily crowded for room inside MR CROISSANT which got its head on the side and shifted in away from the heels of GENTLE BREEZE.

After this, LOVING A BOOM travelled keenly.

After the 600 Metres, CUE THE MUSIC was left racing wide and without cover.

K Teetan reported that after CUE THE MUSIC was left racing without cover, his mount came off the bridle and he had to place it under pressure near the 500 Metres to maintain its position.

He said CUE THE MUSIC did not respond to his riding and was disappointing in the manner in which it weakened out of the race.

A veterinary inspection of CUE THE MUSIC immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Rounding the Home Turn, CUE THE MUSIC raced tight outside MR CROISSANT which shifted out.

Passing the 200 Metres, WALDORF was initially directed to the outside of LOVING A BOOM which shifted in under pressure.

When LOVING A BOOM was straightened by its rider, WALDORF was then directed back to the inside of that horse to continue improving.

Near the 100 Metres, GRACEANDMERCY was shifted out away from the heels of LOVING A BOOM.

GRACEANDMERCY then had difficulty obtaining clear running for the remainder of the race.

The Stewards will interview C Y Ho regarding his riding of SUNSET WATCH approaching and rounding the Home Turn prior to the Sha Tin racemeeting to be conducted on Sunday, 2 February 2020.

AMAZING STAR and WALDORF were sent for sampling.
