Recap by phillip woo

Valiant Elegance responded nicely to win going away 20m out despite a change of tactics saw him settle one off forward of midfield. It was a third straight win despite a rise in class. He's in the form of his life and can win again. Magic Phoenix kept on gamely for second after dictating the run from gate three. He had shown patches of ability in his opening six starts. Fancied late to jump equal favourite, Drops of God ran on steadily along the inside after travelling midfield from a wide draw to just edge early favourite Flaming Passion for third. He has been knocking on the door in his past two starts. Flaming Passion kept on one-paced after a box-seat run. He had no excuse but it was another honest performance. Mercurial just held his ground after a prominent run one off the fence to finish next best without menacing the top four. Prefer him in Class Four. Killer Instinct ran on all right after making his run third last from a wide draw. Racing Fighter ran on steadily without threating after saving ground behind midfield. He might be one to keep safe with Class Four looming large. Scotch Tycoon never got into the act after a wide run without cover behind midfield from an awkward gate. He had an excuse.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (678) - KAU SAI CHAU HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

GALLANT CROWN was withdrawn on 17.5.22 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetence) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter CLASSIC POSH (L Currie).

Before being allowed to race again, GALLANT CROWN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

On arrival at the saddling stalls, it was noted that FLAMING PASSION had sustained an abrasion to the left nostril.

FLAMING PASSION was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said that the horse was suitable to race.

As the start was effected, CLASSIC POSH lifted its front feet and began only fairly.

CLASSIC POSH was then inconvenienced by ENCOUNTERED which began awkwardly and shifted in.

SCOTCH TYCOON shifted in at the start and bumped VALIANT ELEGANCE, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

After this, SCOTCH TYCOON was steadied to obtain cover.

Also from the outside barriers, KILLER INSTINCT and FAMILY FOLKS were steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Shortly after the start, RACING FIGHTER raced tight outside FLAMING PASSION which shifted out marginally.

Passing the 900 Metres, CLASSIC POSH raced tight inside ENCOUNTERED which lay in away from SCOTCH TYCOON.

Then after the 800 Metres, ENCOUNTERED momentarily raced in restricted room inside SCOTCH TYCOON which was then shifted out abruptly approaching the 700 Metres to relieve the crowding to ENCOUNTERED.

After this, SCOTCH TYCOON travelled wide and without cover.

FAMILY FOLKS was held up for clear running rounding the Home Turn.

Approaching the 50 Metres, KILLER INSTINCT got its head on the side and lay in, resulting in its rider having to correct his mount.

After the race, K Teetan reported that although SCOTCH TYCOON was required to race in a three wide position and without cover after the 700 Metres, he was of the opinion that the horse was disappointing tonight in that it did not finish the race off after being placed under heavy pressure after the 500 Metres.

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