Recap by phillip woo

Pocket Rockets was ridden with patience third from the rear and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and let down willingly to get up in the shadows of the post for an upset win. Intellectualstride travelled in midfield and two deep, badly checked off the heels of Red Lucky Star five wide at the 300m and zipped home seven deep to come up a luckless second in a very encouraging first run at Happy Valley. Glenealy Star finished well to make his presence felt at the finish. Early favourite Danewin Winning drove through to lead soon after the break, set an even pace while holding a length advantage upon straightening, was still on top at the 100m and swamped late. Master Rio was overpowered late for a placing. Sunny Fay going late without threatening. Late-fancied favourite, Perfect Gear travelled ahead of midfield and on the rails, copped a bump three deep by Red Lucky Star at the 250m and made only a mild bid without threatening. Lucky Follow Me travelled worse than midfield and on the fence, had to hesitate five wide behind the reckless Red Lucky Star and never could recover in time to make an impact at the finish. Punted late, Red Lucky Star travelled fourth and one off the fence, was badly off stride when copping a sharp bump by Shahjee at the 300m and gave way over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (190) - THE CHINA SECURITIES GOLDEN BAUHINIA AWARD CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1200 Meters LUCKY FOLLOW ME began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, SUNNY FAY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1100 Metres, INTELLECTUALSTRIDE was steadied away from the heels of DANEWIN WINNING (M Chadwick) which shifted in when not quite clear.

M Chadwick was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

After the 800 Metres, SHAHJEE was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 700 Metres, RED LUCKY STAR shifted in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of KING OF THE DAY.

After this, RED LUCKY STAR continued to race keenly.

Shortly after entering into the Straight, RED LUCKY STAR was checked when attempting to obtain a run between KING OF THE DAY and SHAHJEE (N Callan) which, after shifting out making the Home Turn, then shifted back in.

As the Stewards formed the opinion that RED LUCKY STAR did not fully establish running between KING OF THE DAY and SHAHJEE, no further action was taken, however, N Callan was advised whilst he must at all times ride competitively, he must ensure that when shifting ground, he does not interfere with other horses.

After making contact with SHAHJEE in this incident, RED LUCKY STAR shifted to the inside of the heels of KING OF THE DAY, causing inconvenience to PERFECT GEAR.

INTELLECTUALSTRIDE, which was following RED LUCKY STAR, was also checked away from the heels of that horse as a consequence.

LUCKY FOLLOW ME, which was also following RED LUCKY STAR, was hampered in this incident.

When questioned, M Chadwick stated that he had been instructed not to use the whip in the Straight unless necessary.

He said after leading the race, he rode the horse along vigorously hands and heels in the Straight and as it was finishing off the race only one-paced, he did not believe that it would be in the best interests of DANEWIN WINNING to use the whip on the horse in these circumstances.
