Recap by phillip woo

Nice Folks was patiently ridden at the rear, cornered six deep and quickened nicely, despite tending to hang out under the left whip, to get up 30m out for back-to-back course-and-distance successes. Punted late, Supreme Flight made his run second from the rear, turned the final bend with three wider out and ran on nicely to take second. Bet On Me went forward from gate 10 to dictate the running, straightened a length on top and was swamped in the late stages. Forever Elation made his run third from the rear along the inside, rounded the final bend five wide and was finishing up with purpose. Freak Zone loomed a place chance at the 200m and ran out of condition over the final 100m in an encouraging debut. Helene Fun Star was down in grade, but didn't find much over the final 150m after a travelling on the back of the speed. Favourite Classic Jewellery was eased down 250m out. Firming late, Willing One failed to respond when asked for an effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (729) - THE CMA HK BRANDS AND PRODUCTS EXPO CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1400 Meters From the outside barrier, MAKE A FORTUNE was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, WILLING ONE raced tight between FREAK ZONE and HELENE FUN STAR which shifted in.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, HAPPY SEVEN was slow to muster speed.

SUPREME FLIGHT was held up for clear running rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight.

Near the 300 Metres, CLASSIC JEWELLERY was crowded for room between ABSOLUTE FANTASY and SUPREME FLIGHT which shifted out to obtain clear running.

Passing the 300 Metres, FOREVER ELATION had some difficulty obtaining clear running.

Near the 50 Metres, FREAK ZONE was bumped by FOREVER ELATION.

A short distance later, FREAK ZONE was steadied away from the heels of NICE FOLKS which shifted in.

For the majority of the race, ABSOLUTE FANTASY, CIRCUIT STAR and MR GINGER all travelled wide and without cover.

M Du Plessis (BET ON ME) reported that he had been instructed to position that horse in about midfield if possible, however, BET ON ME began very well and although he did not ride the horse along in the early stages, it assumed a forward position.

He said he felt that it would not have been reasonable to restrain BET ON ME to obtain the position as instructed, therefore he allowed the horse to cross runners to his inside and race in the lead.

When questioned, W Pike stated that he had been instructed to attempt to obtain a midfield position on SUPREME FLIGHT, but he was to ensure that the horse had cover as it had previously proved difficult to manage when unable to obtain cover.

He said as the start was effected, SUPREME FLIGHT began awkwardly and lifted its front feet off the ground.

He said after this he rode his mount along in an endeavour to make up lost ground, however, there were a number of runners positioned to his inside and as he had been instructed to ensure he obtained cover, rather than continuing to race wide, he elected, after the 1200 Metres, to steady SUPREME FLIGHT with a view to obtaining a position with cover behind CLASSIC JEWELLERY.

He said however that he was not able to shift in behind that horse due to NICE FOLKS being positioned to his inside, but nonetheless he was able to obtain cover behind CIRCUIT STAR.

He said the circumstances of today's race resulted in SUPREME FLIGHT racing further back than had been intended.

A veterinary inspection of CLASSIC JEWELLERY and WILLING ONE after the race revealed that both horses were displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being permitted to race again, CLASSIC JEWELLERY and WILLING ONE will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

CLASSIC JEWELLERY, NICE FOLKS and SUPREME FLIGHT were sent for sampling.
