Recap by phillip woo

Nobody But You was pulling along the fence in second or third after jumping alertly, angled into the clear three deep at the 250m and quickened nicely to take control 60m out for an overdue win after seconds in his past three starts. True Courage was travelling third and one off the fence from a wide gate, worked to the front from Secret Of Winning at the 200m and kept on nicely for second. He's improved on his four starts and won't be far off a win. Golden Bauhinia settled second from the rear after a sluggish start, worked into the clear with two wider out at the 200m and finished up nicely to grab third in the final 20m. Specked late, D Day Super landed one off the fence and worse than midfield from the widest gate, swung the final bend with one wider out and stayed on reasonably well to just miss a placing. Hannibal Barca flew the gates before settling fourth near the fence, straightened four deep and only held his ground in the dash to the line. Secret Of Winning worked hard from a wide gate to eventually take up the running on the front at the 800m, straightened a half-length on top and was giving way passing the 150m. China Good settled third from the rear, swung the final bend with two wider and only kept on passed beaten rivals.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (299)-CLEVELAND HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Metres PLAIN RED BANNER was withdrawn on 8.1.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetance).

Before being allowed to race again, PLAIN RED BANNER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GOLDEN BAUHINIA, which was fractious in the barriers, began awkwardly and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of GREAT ALEXANDER which shifted in.

TELECOM CHIEF began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, D DAY SUPER was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 800 Metres, GREAT ALEXANDER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HANNIBAL BARCA.

After the 800 Metres, RED LUCKY STAR was steadied away from the heels of NOBODY BUT YOU (T H So) which shifted in when not properly clear.

T H So was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

A short distance after this, RED LUCKY STAR shifted out away from the heels of NOBODY BUT YOU, resulting in D DAY SUPER being awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse.

Making the first turn after the 600 Metres, GREAT ALEXANDER got its head on the side and hung out and near the 400 Metres was awkwardly placed outside the heels of HANNIBAL BARCA which itself was awkwardly placed close to the heels of NOBODY BUT YOU which was steadied after attempting to shift away from the heels of SECRET OF WINNING.

In this incident, NOBODY BUT YOU bumped the hindquarters of TRUE COURAGE which became unbalanced.

Near the 250 Metres, HANNIBAL BARCA was momentarily awkwardly placed outside the heels of NOBODY BUT YOU which shifted out to obtain clear running.

Near the 200 Metres, Apprentice K C Ng (SECRET OF WINNING) dropped his whip.

Near the 50 Metres, TRUE COURAGE and NOBODY BUT YOU brushed as a result of both horses shifting ground.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of RED LUCKY STAR, a favourite for tonight's race, M L Yeung stated that the horse travelled strongly until rounding the Home Turn.

He said at this time he shifted RED LUCKY STAR out to make its finishing run and he anticipated that the horse would finish off the race strongly, however, RED LUCKY STAR quickly came under pressure and despite being ridden out in the Straight did not respond to his riding and over the final 100 Metres gave ground.

He said RED LUCKY STAR, in his opinion, was very disappointing in tonight's race.

A veterinary inspection of RED LUCKY STAR after the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea and also found the horse to have overreached on the outside of the left hind heel.

Before being allowed to race again, RED LUCKY STAR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of GREAT ALEXANDER after the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of MULTIEXPRESS after the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had lost its left front plate.

RED LUCKY STAR, NOBODY BUT YOU and TRUE COURAGE were sent for sampling.
