Recap by phillip woo

Plunge late Happy Ichiban got up near the 100m for a maiden win at his ninth start after parking one off in second behind the leader Mischievous Sundae from a wide gate. It was his best run to date with a return to the turf in blinkers at his second run in Class Five. Favourite Mischievous Sundae found one just too good after clearing to the lead from a middle draw 1,400m out. He proved a last-start second was not a fluke. Winners Brother kept grinding away to finish third after a box-seat run. It was a better effort than his past couple with a return to the Valley 1,650m from a better draw. Golden Cannon had to barge his way between rivals 150m out to come from last for fourth after his usual slow start. Second favourite Virtus Star ran on without menacing from behind midfield. He's placed three times this season but is limited. Money Winner held his ground after a oneodd run in midfield. Kwaichung Brothers will sleep well after a torrid run.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (800) - POK FU LAM HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

BREAK RECORD was withdrawn on raceday afternoon by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice due to the horse becoming fractious when being transported to Happy Valley.

Before being allowed to race again, BREAK RECORD will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GOLDEN CANNON was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, GOLDEN GENERAL and GREEN ENVY were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, GOLDEN GENERAL and GREEN ENVY, which improved quickly to be racing inside the heels of KWAICHUNG BROTHERS, raced tight between that horse and MONEY WINNER.

Then passing the 1300 Metres, GOLDEN GENERAL was crowded for room between MONEY WINNER and GREEN ENVY which, when continuing to race tight inside KWAICHUNG BROTHERS, got its head on the side and shifted in away from that horse.

After being crowded for room, GOLDEN GENERAL then commenced to race keenly and got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of VIRTUS STAR passing the 1200 Metres.

After this, KWAICHUNG BROTHERS travelled wide and without cover and after the 700 Metres was allowed to improve its position to briefly obtain cover near the 500 Metres.

Near the 450 Metres, GREEN ENVY was inconvenienced and raced tight outside DASHING GRACE which was taken out by VIRTUS STAR which was shifted to the outside of HAPPY HOUR to improve.

Passing the 200 Metres, GOLDEN GENERAL was shifted to the inside of MONEY WINNER after being disappointed for running between that horse and GOLDEN CANNON which was shifted in away from the heels of KWAICHUNG BROTHERS to obtain clear running.

For the majority of the race, DASHING GRACE travelled wide and without cover and then in the Straight gave ground.

The performance of DASHING GRACE, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, DASHING GRACE 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 GREEN ENVY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HAPPY ICHIBAN and MISCHIEVOUS SUNDAE were sent for sampling.
