Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Happy Jai Jai was much too good after hitting the front 200m out following a prominent run on the fence. He should remain in the grade despite back-to-back wins and can salute again. The well-backed Shanghai Grace kept on gamely to hold second when headed for the lead after finding the front 1,250m out from a tricky gate. The return to the Valley nearly paid off for him after performing only fairly three times on the dirt. Gorgeous Inheritor rallied nicely near the inside to fill a placing after a patient ride two from the back. He proved a closing fourth last start over the 1,400m was not a fluke. Great Times came from near last to fill the frame. It was clearly his best run to date from nine starts. Daily Beauty ran on late down the outside to grab some prize money after travelling deep without cover towards the rear from a wide draw. He may be able to get away with a race shortly in this grade but will need to draw a better gate. Pakistan Zindabad just held his ground after a one-off trip better than midfield. He did wake up with a placing last start at Sha Tin but had no excuse trying the Valley mile this time. All You Know weakened after working hard going forward three deep to share the lead 1,100m out from the widest gate. He had an excuse.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that he was not given any instructions on how to ride ALL YOU KNOW from the outside barrier tonight.

He said after ALL YOU KNOW began well and as he was of the opinion that there was not a lot of speed engaged in tonight's race, he elected to ride ALL YOU KNOW positively in the early stages and attempt to obtain a position behind the leaders.

He said after passing the winning post on the first occasion ALL YOU KNOW was left racing in a three wide position in advance of midfield and as it was not possible for him to obtain cover at this stage, he elected to allow ALL YOU KNOW to continue improving its position forward of RUBY STARS after the 1200 Metres to race outside the lead passing the 1100 Metres.

He said when he made the decision to allow ALL YOU KNOW to improve its position, he felt that the pace was commencing to slacken and therefore ALL YOU KNOW was able to improve without having to be ridden along.

He added that after racing outside the lead due to the circumstances of the race in the early stages, ALL YOU KNOW then did not finish the race off over the latter stages.

A veterinary inspection of ALL YOU KNOW immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of CASA KINGDOM immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being allowed to race again, CASA KINGDOM will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
