Recap by phillip woo

Favourite We The South led and never looked back for a comfortable win. He's now a sixtime winner over this Valley trip but it wasn't a strong field. Brilliant Fortune kept on well for second chasing the speed three deep until slotting one off outside the winner from the 600m. He's honest but has trouble winning. Well-backed late, Seizing The Moment got going late for a minor placing after making his run among the backmarkers after a slow start. He's run with merit once at each track but is crying out for a longer trip. Wind Speeder just held his ground settling on the leader's back. It was his best run to date from eight starts trying the Valley 1,200m for the first time. New import Ginson kept on evenly after travelling two-to-three deep ahead of midfield from a wide gate. He had an excuse and do expect him to come on for the run. Good View Clarico weakened chasing the speed one off the fence. He's not racing well and prefers racing at Sha Tin. Spontaneous never came on from towards the rear. He's just not the same horse this season. Newcomer Astro King never looked a chance travelling one from the rear. He'll need time to acclimatise.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (197) - COLINTON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Meters

On arrival at the Start, K H Chan expressed concern regarding the action of GOOD VIEW CLARICO.

GOOD VIEW CLARICO was examined by the Veterinary Officer and passed suitable to race.

SEIZING THE MOMENT began only fairly.

SPONTANEOUS was bumped on jumping by MOERAKI (H T Mo) which began awkwardly and was then taken out by WE THE SOUTH.

In this incident, H T Mo's left foot momentarily slipped out of the stirrup iron.

BRILLIANT FORTUNE shifted out on jumping and inconvenienced GINSON.

Then from the outside barrier, GINSON was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 900 Metres, MOERAKI momentarily raced tight between SEIZING THE MOMENT and SPONTANEOUS which shifted in away from the heels of ASTRO KING.

Making the turn near the 550 Metres, ASTRO KING was shifted out away from the heels of GINSON (B Shinn) which shifted in when not properly clear.

When ASTRO KING shifted out, SPONTANEOUS, which was following, was inconvenienced.

B Shinn was advised to ensure that he is properly clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

After this, ASTRO KING got its head on the side and lay out.

Passing the 175 Metres, MOERAKI got its head on the side and shifted out abruptly under pressure.

Close to the finishing line, SEIZING THE MOMENT raced tight inside BRILLIANT FORTUNE.

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

WE THE SOUTH and BRILLIANT FORTUNE were sent for sampling.
