Recap by phillip woo

Spirit Soaring was well rated in fourth and one off the rails, swept to the front five wide at the 100m and kept finding to score a maiden win at his 13 th start. Regency King was giving an easy time on the lead, cornered just over a length on top and found one too good in the dash to the line. Noble Deluxe bided his time fourth from the back along the fence, straightened four deep, shifted further into the clear at the 100m and was finishing up full of purpose to run down Endowing 20m out for third. Endowing parked outside the leader Regency King, cornered in three deep and kept on one-paced over the last 100m with every chance. Euro Swiftly settled midfield and one off the rails, pushed five deep upon straightening and plugged away without menacing. Plunged late, Forgive And Forget eventually settled third from the rear and one off the rails after getting slightly interfered off the jump, swung the final bend widest out and made some ground late when the race was all but over. Finezza settled midfield and on the rails, swung the final corner with three wider out and was disappointing when producing only a mild bid when asked for a response. Favourite Cheer turned the final bend with one wider out and stayed on passed beaten rivals.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (423)-KWAI FONG HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

Trainer C W Chang was fined a sum of $10,000 for breaching Trainers Handbook Regulations in that he entered NEW GLORY for an official barrier trial at Sha Tin on Tuesday, 26 February 2013 when that horse was a Standby Declared Starter for this race.

FINEZZA began awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, FORGIVE AND FORGET was steadied when crowded for room between EURO SWIFTLY and CHEER which was taken out by SPIRIT SOARING which in turn was taken out by REGENCY KING which was directed out by DRAGON FIGHTER.

From wide barriers, NOBLE DELUXE, GOLDEN WIDE and PEPPERMINT were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, NOBLE DELUXE was checked away from the heels of FORGIVE AND FORGET which shifted in slightly after racing tight inside CHEER which itself raced tight inside EURO SWIFTLY.

Approaching the 200 Metres, ENDOWING was awkwardly placed outside the heels of REGENCY KING.

When questioned regarding the performance of CHEER, D Whyte stated that his mount travelled only satisfactorily in the run.

He said CHEER came under pressure to hold its position prior to the 600 Metres and was ridden along shortly after this stage of the race to improve its position.

He said CHEER did not quicken as it had when he had ridden the horse previously and stayed on only one-paced over the concluding stages.

He added, in his opinion, CHEER was disappointing in tonights race.

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

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that DRAGON FIGHTER had lost its right front plate.

A veterinary inspection of PEPPERMINT immediately following the race noted the horse to have blood at the right nostril.

An endoscopic examination was conducted on PEPPERMINT by the Veterinary Officer who reported the horse not to have bled.

CHEER, SPIRIT SOARING and REGENCY KING were sent for sampling.
