Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Golden Treasure was hustled to hold a position behind midfield and one off the rails, was asked to pick up ground passing the 600m, hit the straight with one wider out, swept to the lead 80m out and won eased down. Classic Boy powered to the front five deep at the 200m and found one better on the day. Best Noodle was finishing nicely late down the middle of the track to snare a placing. Fancied late, Super Caga travelled a handy fifth and one off the fence, straightened three deep and only held his ground over the final 100m. Gilded Flight was caught off the track on the speed from the widest gate, rounded the final bend five wide and gave way over the final 100m. Mirage R was rated three back along the fence, was briefly short of room upon straightening near the inside and made some ground late. Storm's Destiny was running on late without threatening. He's best in Class Five over the 1,800m on this surface. Quantum Express rushed through along the inside to lead them up at the 1,400m with Scent Of Osmanthus and Gilded Flight to his outside, was still a length on top at the 250m and gave way 150m out. Happy Score enjoyed the box-seat run and was fading with no excuses over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (105) - SAM TUNG UK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650 Meters CLASSIC BOY began awkwardly.

After the 800 Metres, STAR SON shifted in, resulting in BROTHERS IN ARMS being taken in onto the hindquarters of MIRAGE R which became unbalanced.

After the 700 Metres, BROTHERS IN ARMS became unbalanced when racing in restricted room between STAR SON and MIRAGE R.

At the 400 Metres and again passing the winning post, MUSTANG became badly unbalanced.

When questioned, Y T Cheng stated that from barrier 14 he had been instructed to be positive on GILDED FLIGHT in the early stages and attempt to cross runners to his inside.

He said it was felt that GILDED FLIGHT would resent the kickback on tonight's All Weather Track surface if it was ridden behind runners and it was hoped that the horse would have sufficient speed to be able to obtain a forward position close to the rail.

He said however that horses drawn to the inside of GILDED FLIGHT showed superior speed in the early stages despite him riding GILDED FLIGHT along.

He said because of this GILDED FLIGHT was required to race three wide and without cover throughout the race.

Trainer B K Ng, who was not present at tonight's racemeeting, will be interviewed prior to the Happy Valley racemeeting next Sunday, 23 October 2011 in respect of the instructions given to Jockey Cheng.

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

GOLDEN TREASURE and CLASSIC BOY were sent for sampling.
