Recap by phillip woo

Debutant Fionn's Glory showed good pace to challenge for the lead three off the stands side after breaking from gate five, assumed the lead at the 300m and fought off Solar Spirit over the final 150m, despite shifting about, for the win as the favourite. Solar Spirit made his run in midfield and one off the outside fence after being steadied at the 900 by Kowloon East King, produced a good response when asked at the 350 to draw nearly level at the 150m and found one too good in the end in an encouraging debut. Kowloon East King jumped awkwardly, switched sharply at the 900m, shifted back to the centre of the course at the 300m and stayed on well in an improved second-up performance. Diamond Knight made his run behind midfield after copping a sharp bump at the break, had to check off heels at the 400m, switched sharply out of a traffic jam into the clear two off the stands side at the 300m and was finishing up nicely. He was desperately unlucky. City Of Lights gave way over the last 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (627) - ATV NEWS HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Meters On arrival at the Start, it was noted that CHAMPION RANGER had sustained a mild cut to the right hind fetlock.

CHAMPION RANGER was examined by the Veterinary Officer and found to be suitable to race.

DIAMOND KNIGHT, which was fractious in the barriers, was slow to begin.

FIONNS GLORY and SPEECHMAKER bumped at the start.

Shortly after the start, BARCELONA TOO and CITY OF LIGHTS raced tight outside SOLAR SPIRIT which got its head on the side and shifted out away from KOWLOON EAST KING which itself was shifting out at this time.

Near the 400 Metres, DIAMOND KNIGHT was badly checked when crowded for room between GOLDEN INSIGHT and CHINA ANGEL which shifted in after being bumped by KOWLOON EAST KING which itself was taken in by CITY OF LIGHTS which got its head on the side and hung in marginally despite the efforts of its rider.

No action was taken.

Approaching and passing the 100 Metres, GLORY WIN and DIAMOND KNIGHT (D Whyte) made contact on a number of occasions due to DIAMOND KNIGHT getting its head on the side and hanging out.

D Whyte was advised that he must endeavour to do his utmost to prevent his mounts from shifting ground wherever possible.

FIONNS GLORY and SOLAR SPIRIT were sent for sampling.
