Recap by phillip woo

Happy Seven was given an easy time on the lead after his likely pacemaker buddy Bumper Strike was slow into stride, straightened nearly two lengths on top and kept finding to score a fairly comfortable win in a pace-oriented race. Viva Guy slotted in fifth along the rails, rounded the final bend four deep and wore down Bumper Strike late for second. Bumper Strike straightened three deep and kept on well for a placing. Snitzel Kid travelled comfortably in fourth and one off the fence, swung the final bend five wide and ran on well, before coming up one-paced over the final 100m. Hong Kong Fat enjoyed the box-seat run behind a crawling pace and kept up a steady gallop to pick up some prize money. Jolly Wongchoy swung the final bend with one wider out and was finding the line reasonably well. He was the only one making any ground late and appears ready to turn the corner off his current mark. Fastplus Master made his run in midfield and along the rails, straightened four deep and kept on one-paced. He's better off a light weight. Good Looking Watch was rated ahead of midfield and two deep and kept on evenly in the straight run without ever looking a threat. Saddlers Lodge bided his time at the rear, swung the final bend widest out and never was a factor. Baitiwu was snagged back to settle last or second from the rear, cornered in four deep and never did let down.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (291) - ICE HOUSE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650 Meters VIVA GUY began awkwardly.

FASTPLUS MASTER was crowded for room at the start between BUMPER STRIKE and BAITIWU, both of which shifted ground.

From wide barriers, SPEEDY WARRIOR and SADDLERS LODGE were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 1200 Metres, MINGS HERO was steadied away from the heels of GOOD LOOKING WATCH which shifted in.

At the entrance to the Straight, Y T Cheng (SPEEDY WARRIOR) dropped his whip.

At the 200 Metres, SADDLERS LODGE was struck across the nose by the whip of T Clark (JOLLY WONGCHOY).

A veterinary inspection of BAITIWU after the race revealed that horse to be lame in the left front leg.

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

SNITZEL KID, HAPPY SEVEN and VIVA GUY were sent for sampling.
