Recap by phillip woo

London Luckystar took control 150m out for an emphatic win after a well-executed ride slotting one off the fence in fourth from a wide draw. He relished a return to the Valley 1,650m for a third success from seven C&D starts. Second favourite Jolly Honour split runners late with a strong move from towards the rear to edge Medic Elite for second. The old-timer has caught the eye in his past two starts and can break through shortly. Medic Elite found a couple too good after hitting the front 300m out in a pace-stalking role from a tricky gate. It was another honest effort, but he may be close to his mark following a win two starts back. Our Creed was on his tippy toes 100m out after getting his own way in front. He has given a better sight in his past two starts. Joy Master made a steady bid late without menacing from behind midfield. He is more effective at Sha Tin. Flash Famous was making good ground from the rear before running into traffic from the 200m pole. He should have finished closer. Favourite Amazing News had an excuse after getting posted wide without cover better than midfield for the entirety of the race.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (341) - MURRAY HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

JOLLY HONOUR began only fairly, shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of AMAZING NEWS which became unbalanced.

JOLLY HONOUR was then steadied to obtain a position closer to the rail.

From the outside barriers, FLASH FAMOUS and ANGELS HUNTER were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

KARUIZAWA got its head up on a number of occasions and travelled keenly in the early stages when being steadied to obtain cover.

After the 1600 Metres, JOY MASTER momentarily raced in restricted room outside VUKAN after being bumped by AMAZING NEWS which got its head on the side and lay in away from MEDIC ELITE.

Passing the 1300 Metres, VUKAN raced tight inside LONDON LUCKYSTAR which shifted in when being steadied to obtain a position with cover behind MEDIC ELITE.

After passing the winning post on the first occasion, JOLLY HONOUR and ONE STEP AHEAD bumped.

AMAZING NEWS travelled wide and without cover from approaching the 1100 Metres until passing the 600 Metres.

Approaching the 500 Metres, ONE STEP AHEAD and ANGELS HUNTER raced tight as ANGELS HUNTER improved inside KARUIZAWA which commenced to give ground.

In the incident, ANGELS HUNTER became unbalanced.

Approaching the 300 Metres, MEDIC ELITE shifted in and bumped OUR CREED.

At the 300 Metres, VUKAN and AMAZING NEWS brushed.

Passing the 250 Metres, ONE STEP AHEAD was struck across the nose by the whip of H Bowman (JOLLY HONOUR).

FLASH FAMOUS was held up for clear running from passing the 150 Metres until after the 50 Metres.

Because of this, FLASH FAMOUS was not able to be properly tested.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of L Currie (ONE STEP AHEAD) over the concluding stages did not affect the horse's finishing position, he was nonetheless advised to ensure that he continues to ride his mounts out to the end of the race where appropriate circumstances permit.

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