Recap by phillip woo

Bullish Friend held the fence in third, stayed to the inside upon straightening and quickened nicely to get up in the final 10m for a third victory from his past five starts. Plunged late, Bundle Of Joy went forward to vie for the lead from gate 13, before slotting one off without cover in second behind Xi Ying Men at the 800m, reclaimed the front 350m out and found one better in the dying stages. It was a huge effort with the step up in class and trip and he remains one to follow. Favourite Exciting Dream settled second from the rear and two off the rails from gate 12, swung the final bend widest out and was hitting the line with purpose. He'll be winning in no time. Master Sommelier settled three deep in midfield, rounded the final bend five deep and peaked on his run 100m out in a pleasing debut effort. Santa Fe Sun was taken back from the widest gate to settle a distant last, peeled three-to-four deep soon after straightening and was hitting the line full of running in a promising debut effort. He must be kept safe when next stepping out. Specked late, debutant Amber Dragon will come on for this run and can't be overlooked when next lining up. Beauty Sparkle was flat. Everyone's Choice was twice bothered in the run and proved a nuisance to those travelling behind him.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (505)-PAK SHA O HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

SMART VOLATILITY was withdrawn on 30.3.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter BULLISH FRIEND.

Before being allowed to race again, SMART VOLATILITY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

From wide barriers, EXCITING DREAM and SANTA FE SUN were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1000 Metres, BEAUTY SPARKLE, which was racing tight outside SMART KIDS, was steadied away from the heels of BULLISH FRIEND (C W Wong) which shifted in when not quite clear.

C W Wong was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

In the early and middle stages, SANTE FE SUN raced greenly.

Making the first turn after the 900 Metres, EVERYONE'S CHOICE, which was racing greenly, shifted in towards the running rail and became unbalanced.

EVERYONE'S CHOICE then got its head on the side and hung out badly across the heels of BULLISH FRIEND which resulted in EVERYONE'S CHOICE having to be severely checked by its rider.

BEST JADE TRIUMPH and STEP FASTER, which were following EVERYONE'S CHOICE, were shifted out at this time which resulted in EASY SUCCESS, which itself was racing ungenerously, being checked when crowded for room inside MASTER SOMMELIER which throughout the race travelled wide and without cover.

In this incident, SMART KIDS, which was racing outside EVERYONE'S CHOICE, was crowded for room inside BEAUTY SPARKLE which became unbalanced after being bumped by SMART KIDS.

Then near the 700 Metres, EVERYONE'S CHOICE, which was racing tight to the inside of SMART KIDS and MASTER SOMMELIER, was severely checked and lost ground after becoming badly unbalanced due to making contact with the rail when reluctant to maintain its position inside SMART KIDS.

A veterinary inspection of EVERYONE'S CHOICE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The racing manners and performance of EVERYONE'S CHOICE, which finished tailed out, were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, EVERYONE'S CHOICE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial around a bend and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

BEST JADE TRIUMPH, which was following EVERYONE'S CHOICE, was shifted out to avoid the heels of that horse, resulting in STEP FASTER being taken wider.

AMBER DRAGON, which was following STEP FASTER, was checked away from the heels of that horse and EXCITING DREAM, which was racing to the outside of AMBER DRAGON, was taken wider.

Rounding the Home Turn, XI YING MEN got its head on the side and hung out.

Over the concluding stages, BUNDLE OF JOY shifted out under pressure.

When questioned, A Suborics stated that when giving ground in the latter part of the Straight, ULTIMATE WINNERS' action deteriorated and the horse did not appear comfortable.

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

Before being allowed to race again, ULTIMATE WINNERS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

EXCITING DREAM, BULLISH FRIEND and BUNDLE OF JOY were sent for sampling.
