Recap by phillip woo

Viva Hunter responded nicely to overhaul Voyage Star 50m out for a comfortable win following a rails run in midfield at just his fourth start. He did end last season on a positive note and there's likely another win or two in him this season. Well-backed to jump favourite Voyage Star did everything right but get the win after briefly finding the front 60m out following a box-seat run. He can breakthrough shortly if not in Class Five. Sunny Baby worked home well to fill a placing after biding his time fourth from the rear. He appears to have shown improvement during the off-season and clearly wants a further trip. Early favourite Smart Wongchoy gradually faded after hitting the front 350m out stalking the leader Turbo Power one off the fence from a tricky gate. He'll likely come on for this run. President's Choice ran on without menacing from the rear of the field. Expect him to find his mark shortly in this grade. Specked late Turquoise Alpha came up one-paced when asked for an effort following a handy run. He requires a longer trip. Touch Faith was a non-factor after a wide without cover run better than midfield. He had an excuse.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (7) - YI TUNG SHAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

VOYAGE STAR shifted out abruptly at the start, resulting in TELECOM CHEETAH being crowded for room inside TURQUOISE ALPHA which became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by TELECOM CHEETAH.

SUNNY BABY and PRESIDENT'S CHOICE bumped at the start.

From a wide barrier, PACKING KINGDOM was steadied shortly after the start to obtain cover.

After travelling a short distance, SUNNY BABY and PRESIDENT'S CHOICE raced tight between TURQUOISE ALPHA and LEAN LEGEND which at this stage was racing tight inside SMART WONGCHOY.

Near the 850 Metres, VIVA HUNTER was steadied away from the heels of VOYAGE STAR which got its head up when being checked away from the heels of TURBO POWER (Apprentice C L Chau).

Apprentice Chau was told to ensure that he does not ease the tempo too quickly.

After this, VOYAGE STAR travelled keenly and was awkwardly placed behind TURBO POWER.

At the 400 Metres, PACKING KINGDOM, LEAN LEGEND and SUNNY BABY were all hampered and taken wider by VIVA HUNTER (K C Leung) which shifted out to obtain clear running.

K C Leung was severely reprimanded and told that in similar circumstances he must ensure that he exercises far more care than he did on this occasion when shifting ground so as not to cause unnecessary interference to other runners.

At the entrance to the Straight, TURQUOISE ALPHA was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of TOUCH FAITH when being shifted to the outside of that horse.

Approaching the 200 Metres, PRESIDENT'S CHOICE had difficulty obtaining clear running when being shifted to the outside of TURQUOISE ALPHA.

Throughout the race, TOUCH FAITH travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of LEAN LEGEND immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

A veterinary inspection of TOUCH FAITH immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

VIVA HUNTER and VOYAGE STAR were sent for sampling.
