Recap by phillip woo

Private Road produced an unacceptable performance last month on the dirt but was back to his winning ways with a return to the turf at Happy Valley. He was nicely rated between gallopers in fifth, straightened four wide and finished well to get up in the shadows of the post to remain unbeaten in three rides for jockey Tye Angland. Punted late, Romancing Tamar travelled ahead of midfield on the rails, took the shortest route around to hit the lead 100m out and was pegged back late. Happy Seven crossed from a wide gate to sit outside the leader Mustang in second, assumed the lead three deep and grudgingly gave way late while tending to lay out to just miss second off a big weight. Viva Guy made his run behind midfield and on the rails, swung the final bend five wide, was short of room between Happy Seven and Private Road at the 100m and kept up a steady gallop late to fill the frame in fourth. Real General appeared to be trying to avoid heels throughout the run while travelling worse than midfield and two deep with cover, swung the final bend widest out and stayed on reasonably well without threatening to hit the placings. Brilliant Chariot enjoyed the run of the race behind the leader, straightened one off the fence and fought on rather one-paced with every conceivable chance. Mustang dictated an even pace and weakened in the three path soon after straightening.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (086) - TAI LAM CHUNG HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650 Meters SPLENDID CHAMPION was withdrawn on 11.10.11 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter EAST OCEAN (Apprentice M L Yeung).

Before being allowed to race again, SPLENDID CHAMPION will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

FORTUNE COOKIE began awkwardly and then shortly after the start was crowded for room between REAL GENERAL which shifted out and VIVA GUY which was taken in by BRILLIANT CHARIOT.

PRIVATE ROAD and EAST OCEAN bumped at the start.

After the 1200 Metres, M!|S MAGIC got its head up and lost ground when being steadied away from the heels of CLASSIC ENERGY.

For some distance after the 1100 Metres, REAL GENERAL was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PRIVATE ROAD.

At the 200 Metres, B Doyle (FORTUNE COOKIE) dropped his whip.

Over the final 100 Metres, VIVA GUY raced in restricted room between HAPPY SEVEN and PRIVATE ROAD.

Throughout the race, EAST OCEAN travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, Y T Cheng stated that he had been instructed to ride MUSTANG positively in the early stages to cross runners to his inside.

He was told that if he were able to cross to the fence, he should steady MUSTANG and allow the anticipated leader, HAPPY SEVEN, to cross MUSTANG which would allow that horse to obtain the box seat.

He said however that after riding MUSTANG along to cross to the fence, HAPPY SEVEN was content to sit to his outside and this resulted in MUSTANG being obliged to lead.

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