Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Gurus Dream settled worse than midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out, swept to the lead 250m out and repelled the challenge of Tour De Force over the final 150m for a nice win in a good time. Tour De Force settled fifth and one off the rails, barged his way three deep into the clear at the 400m and finished up nicely to make it close at the wire. Ka Ying Kid settled midfield and on the fence, came one off upon straightening, worked to third under the hard pounding at the 150m and just held off the surging favourite Sea Diamond in a much-improved second-up performance. Sea Diamond eventually settled fourth from the rear and near the inside, came three off upon straightening, switched into clear running at the 350m and ran on steadily late. Mac Row bided his time a distant last from a wide gate and was finishing up well. Victory Master settled behind midfield and one off the inside, swung the final bend with three wider out and kept on passed beaten gallopers. Fionn's Treasure sat outside the genuine pace of Super Plus, worked to the front three deep at the 350m and was stopping 150m out. Green Eagle didn't offer much in the drive to the line with money coming on late.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (416)-CITIBANK MPF SERVICES HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1400Metres

VICTORY MASTER began only fairly and then in the early stages failed to muster speed.

From a wide barrier, MAC ROW was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

SEA DIAMOND was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

MAC ROW had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and again approaching the 200 Metres.

Approaching the 200 Metres, FIONNS TREASURE was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of TOUR DE FORCE which shifted in.

Throughout the race, ST YAZIN travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding his riding out of SEA DIAMOND, 4th placegetter, over the concluding stages, T Clark stated that he had placed his mount under pressure in the Straight and the horse was finishing off the race only fairly.

He said when contesting 3rd placing with KA YING KID over about the final 100 Metres, he continued to ride SEA DIAMOND out with the whip in the left hand, however, the horse was only holding its position outside KA YING KID.

He said close to the line, rather than continue to use the whip behind the saddle, he waved the whip at the horse in the left hand and continued to push strongly with his right hand right to the end of the race.

He said he did this in order to extract a final effort from SEA DIAMOND over the concluding stages.

After considering Jockey Clarks explanation and after viewing all the available videos, the Stewards were satisfied that he had continued to ride SEA DIAMOND out to the end of the race in accordance with the Rules of Racing and accepted his explanation.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of GREEN EAGLE, W M Lai stated that he had to make some use of the horse in the early stages to take up a forward position behind the speed as instructed.

He said although GREEN EAGLE travelled three wide, it had cover and travelled well until rounding the Home Turn.

He said at this time he shifted his mount to the outside of ST YAZIN into clear running and immediately placed it under pressure.

He said however that GREEN EAGLE, after initially responding to his riding in the early part of the Straight, came under pressure near the 350 Metres and then was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to close off the race.

A veterinary inspection of GREEN EAGLE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of FIONNS TREASURE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SEA DIAMOND, GURUS DREAM and TOUR DE FORCE were sent for sampling.
