Recap by phillip woo

Speedball Romantic City had been off the ball for some time, but got down to a suitable mark with a step back in trip for a nice win. He led as expected from gate five, cornered two lengths on top and kept up a strong gallop to the line. Hawthorne settled a handy fifth along the inside, straightened two deep and stayed on well to hold second. Windicator Star blew the start by nearly four lengths, was still last at the 200m and closed furiously down the outside to make it close for second. He has improved on his three outings and won't be far off a win. Early favourite Red Lucky Star settled midfield and on the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and was swamped late for a placing with every conceivable chance. Prosperity Aethon travelled third from the rear and along the inside, straightened three deep and went to the line well in an encouraging debut performance. Glory Horsie settled a prominent fourth and one off the fence, cornered in four deep and kept on one-paced over the final 150m. He's possibly on his mark now. Fancied late to jump favourite, Eastern Promise travelled worse than midfield and one off the fence, switched into the clear with three wider out at the 300m and never did let down when asked for an effort with the blinkers added in his first run for this season.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (142) - DALLAS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000 Meters WINDICATOR STAR, which was restless in the stalls, began very awkwardly and lost a considerable amount of ground at the start.

Before being allowed to race again, WINDICATOR STAR will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial.

PROSPERITY AETHON (W C Marwing) was slow to begin.

W C Marwing reported that his saddle shifted back shortly after the start.

SUPER GOAL ELITE was crowded for room at the start between GLORY HORSIE and ROMANTIC CITY which shifted out.

Shortly after the start, FASTPLUS HERO got its head on the side and shifted out, resulting in ORIENTAL PROSPER being checked when crowded for room inside LUCKY TURBO.

Passing the 900 Metres, RED LUCKY STAR and EASTERN PROMISE bumped due to both horses shifting ground.

For some distance after this, EASTERN PROMISE and RED LUCKY STAR raced tight.

Passing the 600 Metres, EASTERN PROMISE was checked when crowded for room inside GLORY HORSIE which, after shifting in and crowding the running of EASTERN PROMISE, was then taken in slightly by LUCKY TURBO (H W Lai) which shifted in.

When EASTERN PROMISE was checked, that horse shifted out, resulting in FASTPLUS HERO being crowded for room inside ORIENTAL PROSPER.

In the circumstances, H W Lai was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he leaves sufficient racing room for runners to his inside in future.

Near the 150 Metres, PERFECT MOMENT was checked away from the heels of SUPER GOAL ELITE.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that RED LUCKY STAR had lost its left front plate.

Also after the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on FASTPLUS HERO at the request of Trainer D Cruz.

The Veterinary Surgeon reported that this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, FASTPLUS HERO will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of ORIENTAL PROSPER and EASTERN PROMISE after the race did not show any significant findings.

EASTERN PROMISE, ROMANTIC CITY and HAWTHORNE were sent for sampling.
