Recap by phillip woo

Valiant Elegance kept on strongly for a comfortable win after going forward very deep to lead 600m out from gate 12. He had been knocking on the door in his past four runs following a downgrade. Chunghwa Jingshen ran on steadily near the inside after a rails run in midfield to grab second near the 50m. He relished a return to the course and distance of a win in November. Flying Monkey kept grinding away to fill a placing without menacing the top two after handing up the lead 800m out to Winner's Heart. He appreciated the step back to the distance of a win two back after a dull 1,200m effort. Ardenode ran on steadily from behind midfield to fill the frame. It was a better effort following a stable change. Firming favourite Telecom Missile got going late near the outside after settling second last after a slow start. He'll need to clean up his act at the start but it was a positive effort in his first start for the Caspar Fownes yard. Seventh Sea made some ground without menacing furthest out after biding his time towards. It was one of his better runs to date from 19 starts. Winner's Heart was gone 150m out after a pace-stalking run. It was a disappointing effort with a return to his preferred Valley 1,000m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (719) - WING LOK HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Meters

As the start was effected, TELECOM MISSILE bounded in the air and consequently lost ground.

This resulted in TELECOM MISSILE racing back in the field.

Before being allowed to race again, TELECOM MISSILE will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

SEVENTH SEA was crowded for room on jumping between ARDENODE and SCENIC SWEETIE, both of which shifted ground.

A short distance after this, SEVENTH SEA was shifted away from the heels of ARDENODE which was taken out by CHUNGHWA JINGSHEN which was in turn taken out by WINNER'S HEART which was carried out by FLYING MONKEY which got its head on the side and shifted out despite the efforts of its rider.

In this incident, ARDENODE was steadied away from the heels of CHUNGHWA JINGSHEN.

DRAGON IN FIELD and BOND A STAR bumped at the start.

SEA MONARCH and VALIANT ELEGANCE bumped on jumping.

After this, from a wide barrier, SEA MONARCH was steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

When being steadied to shift in to a position closer to the rail, SEA MONARCH travelled keenly for some distance approaching and passing the 800 Metres.

Making the turn near the 500 Metres and again rounding the Home Turn, FLYING MONKEY got its head on the side and lay out.

Passing the 400 Metres, BOND A STAR was awkwardly placed behind SCENIC SWEETIE.

At the entrance to the Straight, BOND A STAR shifted out and bumped DRAGON IN FIELD.

SEA MONARCH made the Home Turn very awkwardly.

On straightening, SEVENTH SEA was bumped by TELECOM MISSILE which improved to the outside of DRAGON IN FIELD.

Near the 150 Metres, ARDENODE was shifted out away from the heels of FLYING MONKEY to obtain clear running.

Throughout the race, WINNING WARRIOR travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that SCENIC SWEETIE had sustained a small cut to the left front coronet.

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