Recap by phillip woo

All Victory was on the back of the speed in third or fourth along the fence, swept to the lead two deep at the 200m and fought off a challenge from Best Win over the final 100m to prevail by a whisker with a switch to Happy Valley following a hard run at Sha Tin on opening day. Best Win was posted three deep in fourth, improved a position and was only one off approaching the final bend, swung the final bend with two wider out and gave a good sight to find one better on the evening. Glory Horsie stalked the leader Benefactor in second, rallied four deep upon straightening and came up one-paced over the last 100m with every chance. Shahjee jogged along in midfield and between runners, straightened five deep and made a steady bid late to just miss a placing as the firming second favourite. Flying Smart settled behind midfield and on the fence, straightened three deep, ducked inside when the gap close at the 100m and kept on all right. Benefactor went a good clip when clearing for the lead from gate 10, straightened a length on top and was giving way over the final 100m. Specked late, My Goal was posted three deep and third from the rear and never a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (035) - OI MAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters Shortly after the start, GOOD FELLOW and SMART KIDS were crowded for room between MASTER RIO which shifted out and BEST WIN which shifted in after being bumped by MY GOAL which itself shifted in after becoming unbalanced when bumped by BENEFACTOR.

After this, MY GOAL was ridden along to obtain a forward position, however, did not show sufficient speed and making the turn after the 1000 Metres was taken across behind runners to obtain cover.

After the 1000 Metres, BEST WIN got its head on the side and hung out for a short distance.

After the 600 Metres, SHAHJEE and MASTER RIO bumped, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

Also after the 600 Metres, SMART KIDS raced in restricted room between FLYING SMART and MY GOAL.

The Stewards considered a protest/objection lodged by Apprentice C Y Ho, the rider of FLYING SMART, which finished 5th, against first placed, ALL VICTORY (M Chadwick), alleging interference to his mount approaching the 150 Metres.

After taking evidence from all parties concerned and after viewing the official videos, the Stewards found that approaching the 150 Metres FLYING SMART, which was establishing running between ALL VICTORY and BENEFACTOR, made contact with BENEFACTOR which at this time got its head on the side and shifted in marginally.

A short distance later, FLYING SMART was steadied and shifted to the inside of ALL VICTORY when disappointed for running between BENEFACTOR and ALL VICTORY which shifted out.

Having in mind the contributing influence of BENEFACTOR'S shift as well as the margin between FLYING SMART and ALL VICTORY at the end of the race, the Stewards could not be comfortably satisfied that had the interference not occurred that FLYING SMART would have beaten ALL VICTORY.

Accordingly, the protest/objection was overruled and correct weight was declared on the numbers as semaphored by the Judge.

Throughout the race, MASTER RIO travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that SMART KIDS had lost its right hind plate.

A veterinary inspection of MASTER RIO after the race did not show any significant findings.

GLORY HORSIE, ALL VICTORY and BEST WIN were sent for sampling.
