Recap by phillip woo

Money was spot on for Wealthy Delight who responded well in the stretch drive to get up near the 150m for the win after coming under pressure to pick up from behind midfield 550m out. The writing had been on the wall after filling the frame in two of three prior course-and-distance runs. Sunny Star stayed on well from midfield to finish a clearcut second in his initial Valley run. He's building towards another win. Naboo Star made good ground late for third after biding his time third last from a wide draw. He rarely produces a bad run over this trip. Newcomer Charity Fun caught the eye with a bold move near the outside to fill a placing after trailing the field until the 600m. He looks to have points in hand off his current mark. Xiang Bai Qi ran on without menacing after biding his time fourth from the rear. It was a typical performance. Top-weight Lewis didn't click after a one-out, one-back run as the early favourite. The switch to the Valley backfired. Heavenly Thought was badly held up when the race got serious following a prominent run on the fence. He had an excuse.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (361) - TAI YAU HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Meters

CHEERFUL LEADER jumped out at the start, resulting in BEAUTY SPIRIT being crowded onto SUNNY LAD.

From wide barriers, CHARITY FUN, TOTAL POWER and NABOO STAR, which began awkwardly, were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1300 Metres, CHATER PINS got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of HEAVENLY THOUGHT.

After leaving the 1300 Metres, LEWIS commenced to travel keenly and when being restrained near the 1200 Metres lay in, causing momentary crowding to HEAVENLY THOUGHT which was also being steadied behind the leader SUNNY LAD.

CHATER PINS, which was following, was checked away from the heels of HEAVENLY THOUGHT, shifted out and bumped heavily with SUNNY STAR which became badly unbalanced.

XIANG BAI QI, which was following, was also inconvenienced.

LEWIS continued to travel keenly for some distance after this incident.

After the race, Z Purton stated that LEWIS' failure to settle in the early and middle stages resulted in the horse being unable to finish off the race.
