Recap by phillip woo

Helene Fun Star settled third from the rear and along the fence from gate 12, was briefly held up four deep at the 350m, switched underneath a tiring P olymer Win soon after and got up in the final few strides for the win with market action. Lombardi went a reasonable clip on the speed, cornered nearly two lengths on top and went down fighting with late-betting support. Favourite Holyangelholy settled worse than midfield and on the rails, straightened one off, went to second at the 150m and plugged on evenly over the final 50m. Smiling Watch settled a prominent fourth along the fence, peeled three deep with every chance and kept on one-paced over the final 150m. Pretty Blueberry was still last upon straightening four deep and got going late to finish up a distant fifth in an improved performance. Treasure Gold settled fourth from the rear and two deep, cornered with two wider out, drifted to near the fence under the whip and only slipped passed beaten gallopers. Lucky Warrior was yielding ground over the final 150m with late-market action. Newcomer Sunny Ying was slow into stride.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (265)-LAI YIU HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400 Metres On arrival at the barriers, the tongue tie fitted to TREASURE GOLD was replaced.

SUNNY YING began awkwardly and lost ground.

After this, SUNNY YING was taken across behind runners.

Soon after the start, TREASURE GOLD and HOLY MAC were crowded for room between LOMBARDI which shifted out and WINNING MASCOT which shifted in when being ridden along.

After this, WINNING MASCOT continued to be ridden along, however, failed to muster speed.

SPURS ON proved difficult to settle in the early stages.

Passing the 400 Metres, HELENE FUN STAR was shifted in away from the heels of POLYMER WIN to obtain clear running.

When questioned, Y T Cheng stated that he rode his mount along vigorously in the early stages to obtain a forward position as LUCKY WARRIOR had raced well when ridden this way previously.

He said despite his riding of the horse in the early stages LUCKY WARRIOR did not show the anticipated early speed.

He said he continued to ride LUCKY WARRIOR along for some distance to cross SPURS ON to its inside, however, LUCKY WARRIOR was not able to show sufficient speed to cross that horse adequately and therefore making the first turn LUCKY WARRIOR was left racing wide and without cover for the remainder of the race.

He added that when being ridden along in the early stages, LUCKY WARRIOR made an abnormal breathing noise which worsened significantly when pulling up after the race.

He said that after the race LUCKY WARRIOR appeared to him to be mildly distressed.

A veterinary inspection of LUCKY WARRIOR including an endoscopic examination after the race confirmed the horse to be a roarer.

A veterinary inspection of TREASURE GOLD after the race found that horse to be lame in the left front leg and to have blood at the mouth.

Before being allowed to race again, TREASURE GOLD will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
