Recap by phillip woo

Kung Hei Fat Choi settled midfield and two deep with cover behind the slick fractions of Young Supreme from the widest gate, swung the final bend with three wider out and quickened nicely to take control 100m out to land a betting plunge. Favourite Mega Castle travelled behind midfield and two deep, cornered in with two wider out and finished up well to be a clear second. Koenigsberg travelled a handy fifth along the rails, shifted into the clear four wide soon after straightening and kept on well for a placing with a drop in grade. He appears capable of chalking up a win at this level and may get 1,800m as well. Young Supreme went good fractions on the speed after clearing from gate nine, opened up by fourth lengths at the 800m, was still two lengths on top at the 200m and was swamped inside the final 100m in a surprisingly game effort, despite a rise in trip. M's Magic settled one-out, one-back in the run, cornered in five wide and stayed on rather one-paced. Hua Shi made his run fourth from the rear and along the inside, straightened one off the fence and made some ground late without menacing. Sonofthewest enjoyed the box-seat run, stayed to the paint upon straightening and kept on evenly over the last 200m with every chance. East Ocean made his run second from the rear, rounded the final bend with two wider out and never did fire in his first run for the Peter Ng bik-kuen yard.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (564) - WARWICK HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650 Meters MS MAGIC and SONOFTHEWEST bumped shortly after the start.

A short distance later, AIPODER IMAGE was steadied when momentarily crowded for room between EAST OCEAN and MS MAGIC which shifted in.

From a wide barrier, ICE FIRE was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, EAST OCEAN jumped a shadow on the track and soon after lost ground.

Near the 1300 Metres, FIERY PATROL was checked away from the heels of KOENIGSBERG after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse for some distance.

In this incident, FIERY PATROL shifted out and made contact with MEGA CASTLE which as a result became unbalanced.

At the entrance to the Straight, MS MAGIC shifted out and bumped KUNG HEI FAT CHOI.

Shortly after entering the Straight, HUA SHI was checked when disappointed for running between MS MAGIC which shifted in and KOENIGSBERG which shifted out to obtain clear running.

As the Stewards were satisfied that HUA SHI had not fully established running between MS MAGIC and KOENIGSBERG, no further action was taken.

For some distance passing the 150 Metres, FIERY PATROL was steadied when held up for clear running behind SONOFTHEWEST and inside HUA SHI.

When questioned, M L Yeung stated that he had been instructed to lead on YOUNG SUPREME.

He said after obtaining the lead on the fence after passing the winning post on the first occasion, YOUNG SUPREME proved very difficult to settle and became unbalanced in its action when he attempted to restrain the horse.

He said rather than have the horse continue to over-race, he elected to allow it to stride forward.

He said this resulted in YOUNG SUPREME running at a quicker tempo than he had hoped.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that KOENIGSBERG had lost its left front plate.

A veterinary inspection of EAST OCEAN after the race did not show any significant findings.

KUNG HEI FAT CHOI and MEGA CASTLE were sent for sampling.
