Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Amazing Chocolate quickened nicely to win going away 80m out following a deep run with cover beyond midfield for a third win from five starts after joining the Tony Millard yard. Post-time favourite Ka Ying Excellent got up for second without threatening the winner after a one-out, one-back run. He's still open to improvement and can get away with a race shortly in this grade. Marvel Dragon found a couple too good after moving to the front 200m out stalking the leader from a wide gate. The Rock ran on well after settling fifth from the back. He's made a good impression in both starts. Awe came from near last and widest out to pick up a pay slip. It was his best run to date. Le Terroir failed to menace but was running on well near the inside after a patient ride third from the rear. He does appear from his past three of four starts to be returning to form.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (758) - ALEXANDRITE HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Meters

PAKISTAN FRIEND was withdrawn on 18.6.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (fever) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter CHAIRMAN LO.

Before being allowed to race again, PAKISTAN FRIEND will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

On arrival at the Start, it was noted that HIGH RISE SOLDIER had shifted its left front plate.

After this plate was refitted, HIGH RISE SOLDIER was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

PRECIOUS EXPRESS began only fairly.

GLORIOUS LOVER shifted out at the start and bumped THE ROCK which in turn shifted out and inconvenienced AMAZING CHOCOLATE.

After this, despite being ridden along in the early stages, AMAZING CHOCOLATE failed to muster speed.

From the outside barriers, AWE and CHAIRMAN LO were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Despite being hard ridden in the early stages, LE TERROIR failed to muster speed.

Apprentice C L Chau (TAKING AIM) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 1300 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of KA YING EXCELLENT, resulting in that horse being directed in onto FLYING VICTORY which was unnecessarily hampered and lost ground and in turn was taken in onto HIGH RISE SOLDIER and PRECIOUS EXPRESS, causing those horses to also be hampered when crowded for room.

In this incident, LE TERROIR, which was racing inside PRECIOUS EXPRESS, was inconvenienced.

Apprentice Chau was suspended from riding in races for the racemeeting to be conducted at Happy Valley on Wednesday, 8 July 2020.

As such, Apprentice Chau is eligible to resume race riding on Thursday, 9 July 2020.

In addition, Apprentice Chau was fined $15,000.

After the 1000 Metres, FLYING VICTORY was left racing wide and without cover.

Approaching the 700 Metres, HIGH RISE SOLDIER commenced to travel keenly and was steadied away from the heels of GLORIOUS LOVER.

Passing the 400 Metres, Apprentice C Wong (AWE) dropped his right rein.

Approaching the 200 Metres, CHAIRMAN LO was shifted in away from the heels of FLYING VICTORY which shifted in after initially laying out earlier in the Straight.

Throughout the race, GLORIOUS LOVER travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, M L Yeung reported that after SUPER QILIN came under pressure near the 600 Metres, the horse made an abnormal breathing noise.

He said after this SUPER QILIN gave ground noticeably.

A veterinary inspection of SUPER QILIN immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

The performance of SUPER QILIN, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, SUPER QILIN will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of HIGH RISE SOLDIER and FLYING VICTORY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

AMAZING CHOCOLATE and KA YING EXCELLENT were sent for sampling.
