Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Legendary Dragon was beautifully rated in the run fourth along the rails, hit the lead one off at the 200m and edged clear for back-to-back course-and-distance wins. Moneymaker settled worse than midfield and on the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept on nicely along the inside to repeat a runner-up performance behind the winner. Loads Of Joy punched the breeze while prompting the pace of Mr Vigorous, cornered in four deep, put his head in front for third at the 100m and kept on gamely to just hold third. Mr Vigorous showed good speed to lead along the fence through steady fractions, straightened three deep nearly a length on top and kept on well when headed 100m out to just miss a placing. Happy Ha Ha made his run fourth or fifth from the rear and two deep, rounded the final bend four deep and was finishing up nicely while shifting off Loads Of Joy and Mr Vigorous at the 100m. He's got a good turn of foot and will be getting his time in the limelight in due time. Master Key got going late when the race was all but over. Bould kept on one-paced with every chance with a drop in grade. Smart Kids was again tight for room between runners at the 100m. He had excuses. Specked late, Make It made his run at or second from the rear and two deep, rounded the final bend five wide and wasn't making much of an impression late.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (404) - THE POLICE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1200 Meters MASTER RIO, Standby Declared Starter, was withdrawn on 13.2.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (sore left eye).

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

MR VIGOROUS and SMART KIDS bumped shortly after the start.

From wide barriers, SUNNY FAY and WINNING BOY were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1000 Metres, MASTER KEY shifted out when being steadied away from the heels of HAPPY DRUMMING which for the majority of the race travelled wide and without cover.

In the middle stages, MAKE IT proved difficult to settle and for some distance after the 900 Metres was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY HA HA.

Making the turn at the 600 Metres, LEGENDARY DRAGON was bumped and became unbalanced when crowded for room inside BOULD MOVER which got its head on the side and lay in despite the efforts of its rider.

MONEYMAKER, which was following LEGENDARY DRAGON, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

Also making the turn at the 600 Metres, SUNNY FAY shifted in and brushed the running rail after being awkwardly placed inside the heels of HAPPY HA HA.

Near the 300 Metres, SMART KIDS was steadied when disappointed for running between BOULD MOVER and HAPPY DRUMMING, both of which shifted ground.

SMART KIDS then had difficulty obtaining clear running and for some distance after the 200 Metres raced in restricted room between BOULD MOVER and HAPPY DRUMMING.

Over the concluding stages, SMART KIDS was again steadied when crowded for room between BOULD MOVER which was taken out by HAPPY HA HA and HAPPY DRUMMING which got its head on the side and shifted in when awkwardly placed inside MASTER KEY.

Passing the 300 Metres, WINNING BOY was steadied away from the heels of MASTER KEY which itself shifted out away from the heels of HAPPY DRUMMING.

Approaching the 50 Metres, MAKE IT was steadied away from the heels of HAPPY HA HA (M L Yeung) which shifted out to obtain clear running.

M L Yeung was reprimanded and advised to be sufficiently clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Over the concluding stages, MONEYMAKER was awkwardly placed inside the heels of LEGENDARY DRAGON.

A veterinary inspection of SMART KIDS after the race did not show any significant findings.

LEGENDARY DRAGON and MONEYMAKER were sent for sampling.
