Recap by phillip woo

Noble De Best was in no hurry at the back from gate 11, shifted into the clear five deep upon straightening and quickened nicely to get up in the final bob of heads for the win. He was suited by the good pace up front. Circuit Star settled three back and one off the fence, swung the final bend with two wider out, worked to the lead 200m out and was touched off in the last stride in a much-improved effort. Chancellor eventually settled with the gun run behind the good pace of Country Charm and Cheers Joy at the 800m, straightened three deep and kept on gamely to make it a blanket finish at the wire. It was a nice effort in defeat and he may not be finished yet following a penalty following a narrow Sha Tin win last time out. Favourite My Home Town eased back to settle midfield and on the rails, bumped while cornering three deep and only held his ground with every chance to finish a distant fourth. Ming Hoi Treasure settled second from the rear and along the rails, shifted off plodding runners five deep at the 150m and finished up well when clear. Fortune Winner made his run behind midfield and on the rails, came off a tiring Country Charm at the 200m and kept on all right thereafter without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (303)-CAUSEWAY HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 3 - 1650 Metres CHEERS JOY began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of CIRCUIT STAR which became unbalanced.

A short distance after the start, ENTHUSING was buffeted and lost ground when crowded for room between CHEERS JOY which shifted out and FUN HEROES which shifted in.

In the early stages, CHEERS JOY was left racing wide and without cover and near the 1000 Metres was allowed to stride forward into a position outside the lead.

Near the 800 Metres, FUN HEROES was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 600 Metres, CIRCUIT STAR shifted in and bumped MY HOME TOWN.

Near the 500 Metres, CIRCUIT STAR was awkwardly placed close to the heels of EASY TO RICH.

MING HOI TREASURE was unable to obtain clear running in the early part of the Straight and after the 50 Metres was shifted out across the heels of EASY TO RICH which was giving ground.

Near the 300 Metres, MY HOME TOWN was momentarily disappointed for running between CHANCELLOR and EASY TO RICH which shifted in.

Over the concluding stages, CIRCUIT STAR and CHANCELLOR raced tight.

Also over the concluding stages, FLUKE was awkwardly placed outside the heels of MING HOI TREASURE.

When questioned, M Chadwick stated that at its most recent start the horse was able to obtain a relatively soft lead, however, tonight he had to make use of COUNTRY CHARM in the early stages to cross CHANCELLOR to his inside.

He said after crossing that horse and obtaining the lead after the 1200 Metres, CHEERS JOY then improved its position after the 900 Metres to be racing outside COUNTRY CHARM and when this happened, COUNTRY CHARM would not relax as it did at its most recent start.

He said COUNTRY CHARM came under pressure at the 300 Metres and then weakened over the concluding stages.

He added that whilst COUNTRY CHARM appeared disappointing on face value, the circumstances of tonight's race were in contrast to that of its most recent start.

A veterinary inspection of COUNTRY CHARM after the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of CHEERS JOY after the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of EASY TO RICH after the race did not show any significant findings.
