Recap by phillip woo

Smart Kids held the fence on the lead, cornered a half-length on top and kept up a good gallop to easily hold favourite Gamekeepers at the wire for the win. Gamekeepers was well rated in fourth along the fence, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept on second best with every chance. Step Faster settled behind midfield and two deep, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished up nicely to add value to the tierce. Samadhi settled fifth along the rails, peeled into the clear three deep upon straightening and kept on OK. Prolific Champion vied for the lead between runners, straightened three deep and was plugging on evenly over the last 100m. Turf Magic made his run second from the rear and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and was finding the line with purpose. Fresh Air settled fourth from the back along the fence, straightened four deep and made some progress. Uwillbeglorious only kept on passed beaten gallopers. Specked late, Joyful Luck was posted deep on the speed and was coming back to the field over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (108) - KOWLOON BAY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters UWILLBEGLORIOUS was crowded for room at the start between GAMEKEEPERS and STEP FASTER which was taken out by FRESH AIR.

At the 1000 Metres, FRESH AIR was checked away from the heels of SPURS ON.

Despite being ridden along to hold its position inside GAMEKEEPERS after the 800 Metres, SAMADHI was reluctant to maintain its position and lost ground.

After the 200 Metres, GAMEKEEPERS raced tight inside SMART KIDS (Y T Cheng) which shifted in.

Y T Cheng was advised to exercise care in similar circumstances.

When questioned, C K Tong (JOYFUL LUCK) stated that he had been instructed to be positioned outside the leader if possible.

He said accordingly he rode his mount aggressively in the early stages to take up a forward position and when making the first turn was left racing in a three wide position outside PROLIFIC CHAMPION and SMART KIDS.

He said JOYFUL LUCK made the first turn quite awkwardly and on entering the Back Straight it became apparent to him that he would have to make considerable use of JOYFUL LUCK to cross PROLIFIC CHAMPION if that horse continued to maintain its position.

He said therefore he attempted to steady JOYFUL LUCK with a view to shifting the horse in behind PROLIFIC CHAMPION.

He said however that at this time JOYFUL LUCK was travelling keenly and would not come back underneath him as he would have liked, therefore he continued to press forward in the hope that PROLIFIC CHAMPION may steady and allow JOYFUL LUCK to cross.

He said however that PROLIFIC CHAMPION continued to maintain its position inside JOYFUL LUCK and because of this JOYFUL LUCK was left racing three wide and without cover.

He added that at the entrance to the Straight JOYFUL LUCK shifted in and became awkwardly placed outside PROLIFIC CHAMPION and then gave ground thereafter.

C K Tong was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he should, wherever possible, endeavour to ensure that his mounts do not cover unnecessary ground.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that UWILLBEGLORIOUS had lost its right front plate.

SMART KIDS and GAMEKEEPERS were sent for sampling.
