Recap by phillip woo

Epee De Hua was ridden three deep to eventually clear for the lead from gate 12 at the 700m, opened up nearly two lengths at the 200m and stayed on gamely to score in his debut for trainer Tony Millard. Fierce Force was ridden early to occupy a position in fifth and three deep, hit the straight four deep and finished off well to take second. Lucky Army made his run worse than midfield on the rails, eased into the clear three wide upon straightening and ran on well under a light weight to take third. Plunged late, Fairy Dragon was hard ridden to challenge for the lead, before settling second on the rails at the 800m, straightened along the inside and only held his ground over the final 200m. Early favourite Plot Ratio was cast three deep in midfield, rounded the final bend five wide and was disappointing. Great Hero made his run behind midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend three wide and made no impression as the late-fancied favourite. Amazing Choice made his run fourth from the rear and on the fence underneath Great Hero, straightened near the inside and never clicked with nibbling support.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (037) - TO YUEN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200 Meters FIERCE FORCE was slow to begin.

From a wide barrier, MISTER HORSE was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Despite being vigorously ridden along in the early stages, METRO RIDER failed to muster speed and consequently raced back in the field.

For some distance passing the 800 Metres, GREAT HERO got its head on the side and lay in, resulting in AMAZING CHOICE being momentarily crowded for room near the 750 Metres.

Making the first turn approaching the 700 Metres, both LUCKY ARMY and METRO RIDER got their heads up and hung out.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that FIERCE FORCE had sustained a mild wound to the left hock.

A veterinary inspection of GREAT HERO and AMAZING CHOICE after the race did not show any significant findings.

GREAT HERO, EPEE DE HUA and FIERCE FORCE were sent for sampling.
