Recap by phillip woo

Short-priced favourite Happy Era settled fifth and three deep without cover, moved forward to slot in with cover one off in third at the 800m, cornered in four deep and drew clear after hitting the front 200m out to remain unbeaten in three starts. Honey King Prawn showed good gate speed to settle second in the run, worked passed leader Hi Molly at the 120m and held on gamely for second in a promising debut performance. Deep Thinker bided his time third from the rear, cornered in with two wider out and was finishing up well to come up just short for second. Hi Molly went a good clip on the front while leading at the 800m by nearly four lengths, cornered three lengths on top and gave way over the final 150m. Lucky Warrior settled fifth and one off the fence, straightened five wide and stayed on OK. Specked late, Double Dragon held his ground over the final 200m. Smiling Watch kept on one-paced over the last 200m. Step Faster settled behind midfield and two deep with cover, pulled into the clear with three wider out upon straightening and never let down in a disappointing effort with a return to Sha Tin. Fancied late at odds, Costa Del Sol was never on the track and was struggling 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (191) - CHEVALIER LIFTS & ESCALATORS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400 Meters GREAT STORIES and SMILING WATCH began awkwardly.

STEP FASTER and BEAUTY MISSION were crowded for room at the start between LUCKY WARRIOR and COSTA DEL SOL which shifted out.

From a wide barrier, DEEP THINKER was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

GERONIMO MEADOW got its head on the side and lay out making the Home Turn.

After the 300 Metres, SMILING WATCH was momentarily crowded for room inside DOUBLE DRAGON which shifted in.

In the Straight, DEEP THINKER got its head on the side, hung in and proved difficult to ride.

When questioned, C W Wong stated that as he had been instructed to lead on HI MOLLY, he rode the horse along in the early stages to clear runners to his inside.

He said he was able to obtain the lead without having to overly use HI MOLLY, however, once the horse obtained the lead after the 1000 Metres, it commenced to over-race and would not settle.

He said he attempted to have the horse come back underneath him, however, despite his efforts HI MOLLY continued to race fiercely and would not relax.

He added that he would recommend to Mr Y S Tsui, the trainer of HI MOLLY, to consider altering the horse's gear in an endeavour to have it settle better than it did in today's race.

A veterinary inspection of SMILING WATCH and STEP FASTER after the race did not show any significant findings.

HAPPY ERA and HONEY KING PRAWN were sent for sampling.
