Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite Brilliant Chariot travelled ahead of midfield and one off the rails, cornered in four deep, ducked inside for a clear run at the 250m, narrowly hit the front 100m out and kept on willingly to score a maiden success at the 16th start. Supreme Tycoon had trouble staying in touch at the back after going back from a wide gate, swung the final bend with one wider out and stretched out nicely to make it close for the win. Hei Hei Posh was ridden third or fourth from the rear and two deep, rounded the final bend widest out and was hitting the line with purpose to pick up a placing with a key step up to the mile. Toy Story was rated a handy fifth and one off the rails, cornered in six wide, drew level nearly six deep for the front at the 150m and was swamped 50m out for a placing. Something Special made his run third from the rear and along the inside, stayed near the paint upon straightening, loomed a chance at the 200m and came up flat in the final 100m. Billion went a steady clip on the lead, straightened three deep and a length on top and was giving way inside the final 150m. Joyful Winner II was tight for room between runners at the 200m and kept on one-paced. Early favourite Yuan's Fortune was ridden along to stay in touch at the 500m, rallied five wide upon straightening and never looked likely, despite being short of room 100m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (382) - TAI YUEN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650 Meters EUPHEMISM was slow to begin.

TRACK LIGHTNING and BRILLIANT CHARIOT bumped at the start.

From wide barriers, SOMETHING SPECIAL and SUPREME TYCOON were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, BRILLIANT CHARIOT became unbalanced.

Near the 1200 Metres, NICKU was left racing wide and without cover and after the 900 Metres was allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead.

When being steadied in the lead after the 1200 Metres, BILLION proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

Near the 1100 Metres, YUANS FORTUNE got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of TOY STORY.

At the entrance to the Straight, SUPREME TYCOON and HEI HEI POSH raced tight.

At the 300 Metres, BRILLIANT CHARIOT was shifted in to obtain clear running after having to be steadied when disappointed for a run between NICKU and JOYFUL WINNER II.

Passing the 300 Metres, SOMETHING SPECIAL momentarily raced tight inside TRACK LIGHTNING.

Passing the 200 Metres, NICKU was eased when crowded for room between JOYFUL WINNER II which was racing tight to the inside of TOY STORY and BILLION which shifted out slightly under pressure.

Over the concluding stages, JOYFUL WINNER II was awkwardly placed close to the heels of TOY STORY.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of YUANS FORTUNE, C W Wong stated that, from barrier 3, he had been asked to position YUANS FORTUNE in midfield if possible.

He said after riding his mount positively in the early stages he was able to obtain a position close to where he was instructed to settle.

He said that approaching the 800 Metres he had to ride YUANS FORTUNE along to maintain its position between BRILLIANT CHARIOT and EUPHEMISM as YUANS FORTUNE was reluctant to hold its position between those horses.

He said after this YUANS FORTUNE did not travel well and was under constant pressure in an attempt to improve its position.

He added although YUANS FORTUNE was not able to obtain clear running over the final 100 Metres and because of this was not able to be ridden out, the horse was well beaten at this time.

A veterinary inspection of YUANS FORTUNE after the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in the horses trachea.

A veterinary inspection of TRACK LIGHTNING after the race revealed that the horse had bled from both nostrils.

BRILLIANT CHARIOT and SUPREME TYCOON were sent for sampling.
