Recap by phillip woo

Happy Guys was up pressing for the lead before settling one off the fence in second behind the leader Aomen, cornered in two deep, poked his head in front at the 100m from Dan Excel and stayed on willingly for an upset win. Firming favourite, Dan Excel was posted three deep without cover, before slotting in to catch a breather 1,000m out ahead of midfield, rounded the final bend four deep, worked to a narrow lead at the 200m and went down fighting. Carthage settled behind midfield and two deep, shifted into the clear five wide at the 400m and finished up nicely to grab third. Packing Tycoon bided his time second from the rear, cornered in four deep, shifted off heels at the 30m and was doing his best work late to make it close for third, a stride of Same World for fourth. Same World was posted three deep behind midfield, finding cover at the 1,200m, peeled six wide at the 350m and eventually got going late in the final 100m to finish a long neck off third. He'll be looking forward to 2,000m. Carrying roll-up money, Aomen dictated the running at his own pace, cornered in a length and a half on top and was swamped for a placing in the final 50m. Military Attack travelled a handy fourth along the inside, straightened one-to-two off the fence and kept on one-paced. King Of Scots settled fourth from the rear and three deep, cornered in with two wider out and made only a mild bid late. Let Me handle It made his run third from the rear, cornered in widest out and never fired off a big weight.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (452) - LION CITY HANDICAP - Class 1 - 1800 Meters BEAUTY TOUCH was withdrawn on 3.3.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (substantial amount of mucopus in trachea on scoping after track work) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter MILITARY ATTACK (N Callan).

Before being allowed to race again, BEAUTY TOUCH will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After being loaded, HELENE FUN STAR became fractious and reared on a number of occasions.

Before being allowed to race again, HELENE FUN STAR will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

LET ME HANDLE IT was slow to begin.

From a wide barrier, BANKSTERS BONUS was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 1500 Metres, JAMESINA commenced to travel keenly and got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of HELENE FUN STAR.

Near the 1400 Metres, BANKSTERS BONUS was steadied away from the heels of HORACES EMPIRE.

Near the 1000 Metres, KING OF SCOTS was steadied when crowded for room between OLE OLE and CARTHAGE (W M Lai) which shifted in.

W M Lai was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

Near the 500 Metres and again at the entrance to the Straight, CARTHAGE and JAMESINA (Apprentice K C Ng) bumped as a result of JAMESINA attempting to shift out.

Apprentice Ng was advised to exercise care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

MILITARY ATTACK had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Near the 200 Metres, JAMESINA was steadied away from the heels of CARTHAGE which shifted in under pressure.

W M Lai was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care in future.

For the majority of the race, SAME WORLD travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, M Du Plessis (AOMEN) stated that he had been instructed to attempt to find cover on that horse if possible.

He said after having to be ridden along, from barrier 11, AOMEN was then left racing in the lead when no other horse went forward.

He said AOMEN then was inclined to lay in throughout the race.

When questioned, G Mossm stated that he had been instructed, from barrier 13, to ride PACKING TYCOON quietly today as the horse had not been finishing off its races satisfactorily when ridden in a forward position.

He said when ridden off the speed today PACKING TYCOON finished off the race strongly.

A veterinary inspection of LET ME HANDLE IT after the race did not show any significant findings.
