Recap by phillip woo

King Mossman was nicely rated after crossing to the lead, was still on top by two lengths at the 200m and kept up a good gallop to fend off favourite Bear Hero for the win, despite giving the latter 15 pounds. Favourite Bear Hero eventually made his run a close fourth along the fence, angled off King Mossman soon after straightening and was closing the gap in a nice effort with a rise in trip. Aerosa dropped over from the widest gate to settle one-off the fence near the speed, straightened to the outside of Bear Hero and kept on gamely to hold Regency Luck for third. He's got more improvement to come and will head higher in the ratings. Regency Luck was never better than three deep, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished off nicely. He had put the writing on the wall in a trial with a blinker and looks to have come into his own. Keen Wongchoy made his run third from the rear and near the inside, rounded the final bend five wide and made some ground without threatening. Connoisseur's Pick was still last at the head of the straight and got going in a much-improved performance.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (009) - DRAKE HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters STORM UNICORN and FAST FORWARD were slow to begin.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, KEEN WONGCHOY, which was endeavouring to obtain a position between REGENCY LUCK and STORM UNICORN, was checked when unable to obtain the position due to STORM UNICORN shifting out when awkwardly placed outside the heels of CLASSIC BOY.

Approaching the 700 Metres, BONDI LAD commenced to over-race and was steadied away from the heels of SEA PRINCE which itself was awkwardly placed close to the heels of AEROSA.

Also approaching the 700 Metres, KEEN WONGCHOY got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of CLASSIC BOY.

Near the 250 Metres, SEA PRINCE was steadied when disappointed for running between GOOD LUCK WIN and SMART FORTUNE which shifted out and away from AEROSA which itself shifted out.

After this, AEROSA continued to shift ground outwards under pressure.

After the race, K C Leung (SMART FORTUNE) stated that he had been instructed to ride the horse quietly, however, SMART FORTUNE began well and took up a forward position without being made use of to do so.

He said however that he was not able to obtain cover on SMART FORTUNE and raced wide throughout.

Following the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that CONNOISSEURS PICK had lost its left hind plate.

A veterinary inspection of SEA PRINCE after the race did not show any significant findings.

KING MOSSMAN and BEAR HERO were sent for sampling.
