Recap by phillip woo

Vintage Hussler was best into stride on the outside fence, before settling in second or third, reclaimed the front 200m out and drew clear for a nice win. Favourite Castle Hero was handy to the speed near the outside fence, switched in sharply for a clear run at the 150m and stayed on well for second. Red Lucky Star settled in midfield and the centre of the course, switched further out at the 200m and ran on well to edge out Heartland in the final bob of heads for third. Heartland settled near the rear and on the outside fence after jumping midfield, worked to third at the 100m and was pegged on the line for third. Space Race was handy to the speed and kept away one-paced over the final 100m. He's had too many hard runs and may need a break. Trend Master made his run second from the rear and kept on OK in his debut. Ponderosa worked his way into the lead at the 800m, was under pressure to hold his narrow advantage at the 400m and gave way 100m out. He had irregular heart rhythms and was declared a second time bleeder. Pounded late in the betting, Keen Tactics made his run second or third from the rear after a sluggish break, had to steady off Red Lucky Star at the 200m and was again tight for room behind Ponderosa 50m out. Supreme Jewellery gave up the chase.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (303) - THE LOK SIN TONG CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1000 Meters At declaration time, K C Leung was declared as the rider of both SPACE RACE and TREND MASTER.

It was established that K C Leung had a firm commitment to ride TREND MASTER.

As such, the Stewards permitted Apprentice T H So to be substituted as the rider of SPACE RACE.

For this declaration error, K C Leung was fined $2,000.

MERRY ANNIVERSARY blundered badly on jumping.

TREND MASTER was slow to begin.

KEEN TACTICS was slow to begin and then shortly after the start was crowded for room between PONDEROSA which shifted in and HANNIBAL BARCA which was taken out by SUPREME JEWELLERY.

RED LUCKY STAR was unable to obtain clear running from approaching the 500 Metres until after the 300 Metres.

Near the 200 Metres, LONGWAH RISING and SUPREME JEWELLERY, which were giving ground, were hampered when crowded for room between SPACE RACE which hung out and CASTLE HERO (Apprentice C Y Ho) which was directed to the inside of PONDEROSA to obtain clear running.

Apprentice Ho was severely reprimanded and advised that this was the third occasion today that the Stewards had had to speak to him in respect of a matter involving aspects of his riding.

He was advised that he must ride with more care than he has in todays races.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that PONDEROSA had bled from both nostrils and was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being permitted to race again, PONDEROSA will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SUPREME JEWELLERY, D Beadman stated that his mount travelled very strongly in the early and middle stages.

He said after the 400 Metres he commenced to ride SUPREME JEWELLERY along and the horse immediately got its head up and was reluctant to stretch out.

He said despite being ridden along SUPREME JEWELLERY did not respond and although the horse was hampered near the 200 Metres, it was nonetheless most disappointing in the manner in which it weakened out of the race over the final 300 Metres.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of CHARITY SPIRIT, G Mossm stated that he had ridden the horse in a gallop in the lead up to todays race and that work, in his opinion, had been fair.

He said after following SPACE RACE in the early and middle stages, he placed CHARITY SPIRIT under pressure after the 400 Metres.

He said after initially responding to his riding, the horse commenced to give ground near the 350 Metres and was most disappointing in its failure to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of CHARITY SPIRIT, XI YING MEN and SUPREME JEWELLERY after the race did not show any significant findings.

VINTAGE HUSSLER and CASTLE HERO were sent for sampling.
