Recap by phillip woo

Wah May Star was posted three deep early on in fifth, before slotting in with cover one-off the fence at the 1,000m, shifted into the clear six wide at the 300m and quickened nicely to get up 50m out for a narrow win as the favourite. He is got more improvement to come. Elegance Klammar dropped quickly to the fence second from the rear after breaking from the widest gate, cornered in five wide, shifted into the clear with three deeper out at the 250m and hit the line nicely off a big weight. He's ready to win. Flying In travelled behind midfield and two-to-three deep with cover, rounded the final bend nearly seven wide and kept on willingly under a big weight to make it close at the finish. Dr Win travelled behind midfield and on the rails, shifted into the clear three deep at the 250m and kept on well to just miss out on a placing. Supreme Flight enjoyed the box-seat run and was swamped 50m out. Loving Star made his run behind midfield and two deep, checked off heels and lost ground at the 600m, shifted into the clear with two wider out at the 350m and found the line nicely in a smart debut performance. Mr gave way 100m out. He's sitting on a big run. Viva Freedom was badly held up and never clicked.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (304) - HAU WONG HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400 Meters From the outside barrier, ELEGANCE KLAMMER was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Also from a wide barrier, BERNARDS CHOICE was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Soon after the start, LOVING STAR was hampered when crowded for room between WAH MAY STAR and GOOD STRIKE which shifted in after bumping with DANZULU.

Near the 600 Metres, LOVING STAR got its head up when being checked away from the heels of VIVA FREEDOM.

In this incident, LOVING STAR shifted out and bumped DANZULU.

Near the 350 Metres, WAH MAY STAR raced in restricted room between SHAHJEE and HAPPY AMBASSADOR which shifted in.

VIVA FREEDOM was unable to obtain clear running until near the 100 Metres.

Because of this, VIVA FREEDOM was not able to be properly tested.

Near the 100 Metres, the whip of Apprentice T H So (MR VIGOROUS) was knocked from his grasp by the whip of Apprentice C Y Ho (SUPREME FLIGHT).

Throughout the race, SHAHJEE travelled three wide and without cover.

When questioned, Apprentice T H So said that rounding the Home Turn MR VIGOROUS got its head on the side and lay out.

He said he attempted to have MR VIGOROUS maintain its position close to the fence by placing pressure on the right rein, but despite his efforts MR VIGOROUS shifted out which allowed room for SUPREME FLIGHT to improve quickly to his inside.

Apprentice So was advised that wherever possible he must make every effort to prevent his mounts from shifting ground and which allows other runners to improve their positions.

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

WAH MAY STAR and ELEGANCE KLAMMER were sent for sampling.
