Recap by phillip woo

Maroon Prince settled a prominent fourth in the run and two-to-three deep with cover, rounded the final bend five wide and quickened well to take control 150m out with the switch to the all-weather track the key to this win. Flying China was switched off at the rear, swung the final bend widest out and was finishing nicely to get up for second in the final few metres. Late-fancied favourite Supreme Hong Kong settled third from the rear and three deep from a good gate, swung the final bend with two wider out and was rallying late to snatch third. Time Winner sat on the back of the speed in third and one off the fence, briefly went to second at the 30m and was swamped late in a pleasing debut effort. Oyster never obtained cover in midfield, rallied with one wider out and was making a steady bid late to make it close for the minors. Forza led or shared the lead one off the fence at the 800m from a wide gate, cornered a half-length on top and grudgingly gave way. He must be kept safe next time out from a good gate sprinting on either surface. Early favourite Good Hong Kong settled behind midfield and one off the fence, cornered four deep and was doing his best work late. Punted late, El Grande made some progress late without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (246) - SAI WAN SHAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200 Meters GOOD HONG KONG stumbled at the start.

FIERY RAIDER, which was leaning on the inside of its barrier as the start was effected, began awkwardly.

FORZA was crowded for room at the start between MAROON PRINCE and OYSTER which shifted out.

From the outside barrier, HAPPY FRIENDS was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, SUPREME HONG KONG failed to muster speed.

Passing the 1000 Metres, SUPREME HONG KONG was awkwardly placed inside the heels of OYSTER.

In the early part of the Straight, TIME WINNER got its head on the side and lay in.

For the majority of the race, OYSTER travelled wide and without cover.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of T Angland (GOOD HONG KONG), 7th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horses finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of FIERY RAIDER, T Clark stated that after beginning only fairly, he had to ride the horse along in the early stages to take up a forward position.

He said after being able to obtain the lead passing the 1000 Metres, FIERY RAIDER, which was up in grade today, was taken on in the lead by FORZA.

He said because of this the horse travelled only fairly and after responding satisfactorily to his riding in the early part of the Straight weakened over the final 200 Metres.

He added that, in his opinion, the step up in grade combined with the fact that FIERY RAIDER was not able to get a soft lead could account for the horses disappointing performance.

A veterinary inspection of FIERY RAIDER after the race did not show any significant findings.
