Recap by phillip woo

Punted late We The South led and just held on after straightening two lengths on top to ring up a seventh career win over this trip. He was able to break the duck at his eighth run in the grade after easily saluting last start in Class Three. Kurpany had his chance after peeling off heels for a clear run 250m out but found one just too good after a box-seat run. He's racing well. Voyage Warrior kept on better for placing chasing the speed without cover from a tricky gate. It was a return to form following a downgrade and switch to the Valley. Favourite Keep You Warm got going late to fill the frame after making his run four back with cover one off the fence. It wasn't a bad effort despite a change in tactics and the 1,200m may suit him better. Hong Kong Win had his chance after a handy run but came up one-paced over the last 100m. He just doesn't have points in hand to score around his current mark. Harmony Fire just held his ground after finding the fence in midfield from an awkward gate. He's a Class Three horse. Punted late Handsome Bo Bo ran on without menacing after missing the start. He had an excuse. Plunged late Valiant Dream was a non-factor after drifting back to last at the 700m. He's not a Valley horse.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (278) - FORT HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1000Meters

DROPS OF GOD was withdrawn on 20.12.21 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (swollen left front leg).

Before being allowed to race again, DROPS OF GOD will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After being loaded, HANDSOME BO BO reared and struck the front gate with its right front leg.

When this happened, HARMONY FIRE became fractious and lunged at the front gates which opened, resulting in HARMONY FIRE exiting the barrier stalls via the front gate.

HARMONY FIRE was quickly pulled up, returned to the Start and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

HANDSOME BO BO was slow to begin.

From a wide barrier, GRATEFUL HEART was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Near the 900 Metres, VALIANT DREAM was awkwardly placed outside the heels of WE THE SOUTH when being steadied to obtain cover.

VALIANT DREAM was then inconvenienced when momentarily crowded for room between KEEP YOU WARM and HONG KONG WIN, both of which shifted minimal ground.

This resulted in VALIANT DREAM losing ground.

After the 700 Metres, KEEP YOU WARM and HONG KONG WIN raced tight and brushed, resulting in HONG KONG WIN becoming unbalanced and laying out which inconvenienced KEEP YOU WARM.

KEEP YOU WARM was then steadied approaching the 600 Metres to obtain cover behind HONG KONG WIN when racing wide outside that horse.

After the 600 Metres, HONG KONG WIN was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 300 Metres, KURPANY was shifted out away from the heels of WE THE SOUTH to obtain clear running.

Passing the 100 Metres, HONG KONG WIN raced tight outside VOYAGE WARRIOR which got its head on the side and shifted out under pressure.

KEEP YOU WARM, which was racing outside HONG KONG WIN, was inconvenienced in consequence.

After the race, it was reported that WE THE SOUTH had sustained an abrasion to the right hind leg.

A veterinary inspection of HANDSOME BO BO and VALIANT DREAM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

KEEP YOU WARM, WE THE SOUTH and KURPANY were sent for sampling.
