Recap by phillip woo

Osvaldo was nicely settled worse than midfield and on the rails, shifted into the clear five wide upon straightening and let down brilliantly to get up in the final 10m for the win over his preferred 1,800m at Happy Valley. Regency Winner bided his time third or fourth from the rear and on the rails, the sea parted for him one off the fence upon straightening, swept to the lead 150m out and found one better in the dying stages. Happy Tumbler made his run at the rear, rallied five wide upon straightening, shifted further out at the 200m and out-finished favourite Mr Bond to just secure third. Mr Bond bided his time second from the rear and one off the rails, took closer order at the 600m, swung the final bend widest out and was really hitting the line with purpose late off a big weight with a step up in trip. Jamesina bided his time second or third from rear and one off the fence, shifted into the clear three deep at the 300m, worked to third at the 50m and swamped in the final few metres for a placing. Business As Usual settled one-out, one-back after handing up the lead to Happy Guys and Hot Shot at the 1,200m, rallied four wide upon straightening and kept on all right without ever threatening. Happy Guys opened nearly a two length advantage at the 250m and the hard run took its toll 100m out. Banksters Bonus settled a handy fourth along the rails, straightened four deep and plugged on one-paced over the last 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (370) - KWUN TONG HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1800 Meters OSVALDO shifted out at the start and bumped BANKSTERS BONUS.

From the outside barrier, HAPPY TUMBLER was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early and middle stages, FREE JUDGEMENT travelled wide and without cover and after the 800 Metres was allowed to improve into a more forward position, however, continued to remain racing wide and without cover.

After the 1000 Metres, JAMESINA was awkwardly placed close to the heels of RIO WILLIE.

After this, JAMESINA proved difficult to settle.

When questioned, Apprentice C Y Ho (HOLIDAY SUN) stated that after the 900 Metres he was positioned behind BUSINESS AS USUAL and he felt that he was maintaining a position one horse off the fence behind that horse.

He said he was unaware that by remaining behind BUSINESS AS USUAL that HOLIDAY SUN had shifted away from a position one horse off the fence which allowed OSVALDO to shift out and obtain a position to the inside of HOLIDAY SUN.

He said making the turn after the 600 Metres HOLIDAY SUN raced tight between OSVALDO and RIO WILLIE which lay in and because of this HOLIDAY SUN was not able to continue to maintain its position between those horses.

Apprentice Ho was advised to ensure that where circumstances permit he maintains advantageous positions and does not allow other runners to improve their positions at his own expense.

After the race, B Prebble voiced concern regarding BUSINESS AS USUALs action.

A veterinary inspection of BUSINESS AS USUAL, HOT SHOT and HOLIDAY SUN after the race did not show any significant findings.

MR BOND, OSVALDO and REGENCY WINNER were sent for sampling.
