PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Green Reign went better with excuses latest in blinkers from two failures over the Sha Tin 1,200m. He's fitter and hopefully a switch to the Valley can produce a desirable result. Winning Method put the writing on the wall in blinkers three back in his initial C&D run with a wide and without cover third behind a pair of dead-heat winners and was never headed in a recent win in a strong form race. He's tactically versatile and can repeat despite gate nine. Speed Vision will be fitter for five unproductive sprints and returns to the level of three front-running wins from five C&D outings last term. He'll try to wire them from gate 10 with the claim well utilised. Fresh Power is better than the form reads after jumping from wide draws in back-to-back runs in this grade following a win over the Sha Tin 1,200m. He's a light-weight hope.

TROUBLE IN RUNNING

GREEN REIGN (D140)passing the 900M was awkwardly placed close to heels Near the 750M was shifted out away from heels of that horse and in doing so bumped a runner Rounding the Home Turn raced tight when improved to the outside of a runner At the entrance to the Straight raced tight Near the 350M bumped a runner and became unbalanced after being crowded for room - Race 296 RELENTLESS ME (A178)after leaving the Parade Ring but prior to entering the track became very fractious, reared and momentarily got its right front leg over a rail Then continued to be fractious and dislodged its rider without incident A vet exam immediately after the incident cleared that horse to proceed to the Start at which time a further vet exam was conducted by the vet who said that although the horse had sustained small cuts to the inside of the right front cannon, the horse was suitable to race - Race 232 FRESH POWER (B067)near the 1100M was steadied to obtain a position with cover after initially being ridden along from a wide barrier In the early part of the Straight was held up for a run and approaching the 300M was directed to the outside of runners to obtain clear running - Race 296 FIRST RESPONDER (C205)after the race was examined by the vet who said an endoscopic exam showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea - Race 288
