Recap by phillip woo

Villa Fionn held Viva Popcorn at bay over the last 100m for the win after hitting the front 150m out following a perfect run better than midfield on the fence. He was knocking on the door and took full advantage of gate one. Viva Popcorn ran on strongly near the inside to make it close on the wire. He's close to adding to an earlier win in Class Five. Jolly Honour let down well to get up for third 100m out after making his run four back on the fence. He's always a chance over this course and distance. Chater Pins closed nicely from the rear of the field to fill the frame. He keeps promising but has yet to even deliver a placing in his 17 starts. Punted late Viva Hunter gradually faded after rolling forward to sit one off the leader Faithful Trinity from a wide draw. It wasn't a bad effort carrying top weight following a win. Faithful Trinity was giving way in the run to the wire after dictating the run from gate seven. He's not easy to get right. Total Power ran on without menacing travelling one from the rear. He ran below expectations but his rider Jerry Chau Chun-lok is going through a dry spell. Favourite Dr Winning never let down after a oneoff trip behind midfield. It was a disappointing run following a last-start win.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (313) - PATERSON HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Meters

HEAVENLY THOUGHT shifted out at the start and bumped FAITHFUL TRINITY.

ILLUSTRIOUS and VIVA POPCORN bumped on jumping.

VIVA POPCORN was then steadied to obtain cover.

CHATER PINS was crowded for room on jumping between FREE FOAL and VIVA HUNTER which shifted in.

After this, from a wide barrier, CHATER PINS was shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, ILLUSTRIOUS and FREE FOAL bumped.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, CHATER PINS got its head up when travelling keenly and awkwardly placed behind TOTAL POWER.

Approaching the 400 Metres, FOXHUNTER WAY momentarily raced in restricted room when improving into tight running between TOTAL POWER and ILLUSTRIOUS which, after shifting out when giving ground, shifted in marginally after bumping FREE FOAL.

Rounding the Home Turn, TOTAL POWER was shifted out away from the heels of HEAVENLY THOUGHT.

TOTAL POWER then raced tight inside FREE FOAL at the entrance to the Straight when having difficulty obtaining clear running behind DR WINNING.

For the major part of the race, ILLUSTRIOUS travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground and finished tailed out.

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

The performance of ILLUSTRIOUS was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, ILLUSTRIOUS will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
