Recap by phillip woo

Fancied to jump equal favourite Great Harvest kept on gamely after hitting the front 100m out following a dream run to continue his solid form over this Valley trip. He'll remain in the grade off a bigger weight but can win again. Co-favourite Stormtrouper flashed home late to finish a close and clear-cut second after biding his time fourth last three deep with cover. He's heading in the right direction now and will be saluting shortly. Punted late Happy Gathering ran on swell near the inside to fill a placing after a one-off run worse than midfield. He relished a return to the course and distance of two late-season placings and might be worth trying over a further trip. Whiskey Neat grudgingly gave way after working hard to eventually lead from a wide draw. It was another honest effort. Plikclone left things too late after getting posted deep without cover towards the rear from a tricky gate. He had an excuse. What A Legend didn't find anything when asked for an effort following a prominent run. He needed the outing. Plunged late Spicy So Good folded to finish last after a wide without cover run the entire trip in midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (33) - SHUM WAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

WITTY SCHOLAR and ROYAL AGILITY began only fairly.

On jumping, PLIKCLONE was awkwardly placed inside the heels of LORIZ which shifted in.

In the early stages, COURAGEOUS DRAGON was steadied to obtain cover.

After being steadied in the early stages from the outside barrier in an attempt to obtain cover, SPICY SO GOOD was then required to race wide and without cover throughout the race.

Passing the 800 Metres, LORIZ became unbalanced of its own accord when momentarily racing tight inside WHISKEY NEAT.

Near the 650 Metres, STORMTROUPER and PLIKCLONE raced tight and bumped on a number of occasions as STORMTROUPER improved to be racing behind MOONLUCK and K C L Leung, the rider of PLIKCLONE, which was initially racing behind and outside of STORMTROUPER, attempted to prevent STORMTROUPER from shifting out and taking PLIKCLONE wider.

After this, PLIKCLONE travelled wide and without cover.

After the 550 Metres, HAPPY GATHERING (M Chadwick) was awkwardly placed behind WHAT A LEGEND.

After the race, M Chadwick reported that when having to be steadied away from the heels of WHAT A LEGEND, his saddle shifted to the left, placing him at a disadvantage for the remainder of the race.

Rounding the Home Turn, HAPPY GATHERING was held up when very awkwardly placed close to the heels of WHAT A LEGEND.

STORMTROUPER raced close to the heels of MOONLUCK passing the 400 Metres and shifted in marginally away from the heels of that horse, resulting in COURAGEOUS DRAGON being inconvenienced.

After having difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight, STORMTROUPER was shifted to the inside of LORIZ after the 300 Metres and when improving into tight running between LORIZ and WHAT A LEGEND bumped WHAT A LEGEND.

Passing the 300 Metres, MOONLUCK was directed out away from the heels of SPICY SO GOOD to obtain clear running.

Passing the 200 Metres, HAPPY GATHERING raced tight inside WHAT A LEGEND which shifted in.

LORIZ lay out under pressure in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of SPICY SO GOOD, LORIZ and MOONLUCK immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GREAT HARVEST and STORMTROUPER were sent for sampling.
