Clean running blocked
THERE was plenty of interference at the track yesterday to note down for future reference. Two of the worst sufferers came in the same race with Patrick Biancone's Gun Sin and Geoff Lane's Royal Pride totally taken out of the third event won by Lawrie Fownes' Crown Commander. Both were going very well at the time but it may be that Biancone's Gun Sin is a better betting proposition for the future.
He was forced to come on the inside, having been impeded when Royal Pride was badly hampered on the home turn by the weakening Good Scene.
As Gun Sin cut them down hand over fist in the final 300 metres, Mosse was forced to virtually pull his mount to a halt as he was denied a run on the inside of the Dennis C. H. Yip-ridden Racing Ace. Royal Pride was travelling very easily when he was sent back a good four or five lengths but there is a lingering doubt that he is going to prove an expensive horse to follow. He may be a good work horse who does not find too much when let down in his races. The Gary Ng Ting-keung-trained Gints To Win was another unlucky loser. He was denied the run on the rails by Graceful Win in Golden Luck's race. Basil Marcus then had to check and switch off the rails before rallying Gints To Win to run third, beaten only a head and a neck.
