Recap by phillip woo

Thumped late, Absolute Fantasy was given a patient ride, improved his position four deep at the 500m, cornered in with two wider out and quickened nicely to take control 30m out for the win with a drop in grade. Ming Hoi Treasure was given a torrid run without cover in fifth, straightened with three deeper out, briefly hit the lead 60m out and found one better on the afternoon. Go Lucky Go was ridden at the rear from a wide gate, swung the final bend widest out and was hitting the line with purpose with a drop in class. Favourite Connoisseur's Pick saved ground in midfield and along the rails, straightened one off the fence with every chance and kept on one-paced. He's yet to salute in 15 starts and is not one to take at short odds. Dark Secret settled behind midfield and on the rails, kept to the fence upon straightening and kept on well along the fence in an improved effort. Rainbow Seeker travelled one-out, one-back behind the honest pace of Toy Story, straightened four deep and came up flat over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (539) - JIANGUOMEN HANDICAP - Class 4 (Special Conditions) - 1650 Meters BUMPER STRIKE was withdrawn on 14.4.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore foot) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter HEI HEI POSH (B Prebble).

Before being allowed to race again, BUMPER STRIKE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

DARK SECRET, which was leaning on the outside of its stall, began awkwardly and lost ground.

ROMANCING TAMAR began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, ABSOLUTE FANTASY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early stages, HEI HEI POSH raced with its head on the side and was inclined to lay out.

Near the 1100 Metres, MING HOI TREASURE was left racing wide and without cover.

HOME WITH GLORY had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Near the 150 Metres, DARK SECRET and CONNOISSEURS PICK bumped after racing tight.

The Stewards interviewed B Prebble, the rider of HEI HEI POSH, after Mr C S Shum, the trainer of that horse, lodged a complaint with the Stewards in respect of Jockey Prebbles demeanour following the race.

B Prebble stated that HEI HEI POSH did not travel well at any stage of todays race and its action deteriorated in the Home Straight when it was under pressure.

B Prebble acknowledged that he had not provided an adequate amount of feedback to Mr Shum regarding the manner in which HEI HEI POSH had raced today and expressed a measure of contrition for failing to fulfil his obligation in this respect.

B Prebble was told that he must at all times conduct himself in a professional manner.

A veterinary inspection of HEI HEI POSH and ISTIDE after the race did not show any significant findings.

CONNOISSEURS PICK, ABSOLUTE FANTASY and MING HOI TREASURE were sent for sampling.
