Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Willie Cazals settled at the tail of the field, stayed to the inside upon straightening and quickened well to get up 50m out for a narrow victory with the step up in distance and return to the Valley. Victor Delight made his run one-out, one-back after jumping alertly, swept to the lead with two wider out at the 150m and found one too good in the end. Beauty Touch was taken back to settle second from the rear from a wide gate, swung the final bend furthest out and was running on steadily late to shade Mr Medici for third. Mr Medici settled midfield and one off the rails, turned the final bend with one wider out and ran on steadily to just miss a placing. Plunged late, Lucky Forever was vying four deep early on for the lead, before settling one off in second behind Sunny Ying, cornered in four deep and was swamped in the final 50m for a placing. It was a nice run in defeat and he may be able to pick up a win over 1,800m to 2,200m from a good gate before season's end. Best Show settled third from the rear and along the rails, turned the final bend five-to-six deep and made some ground late without ever looking a threat. Sunny Ying maintained a length advantage rounding the final bend and was stopping 100m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (542)-THE HONG KONG RUGBY FOOTBALL UNION CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 2 - 2200Metres

Acting on a report by the Veterinary Officer that ENDOWING was found to have a swollen left eye when being saddled up for the race, the horse was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

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

WILLIE CAZALS began awkwardly.

Making the turn near the 2000 Metres, SUNNY YING raced tight between VICTOR DELIGHT and LUCKY FOREVER which shifted in.

Rounding the Home Turn, BEST SHOW became unbalanced when being shifted out across the heels of MR MEDICI.

Over the concluding stages, BEAUTY TOUCH got its head on the side and lay in.

Also over the concluding stages, LUCKY FOREVER was awkwardly placed inside the heels of VICTOR DELIGHT.

When questioned, W C Marwing stated that due to the horse carrying a relatively light weight he had been instructed to take up a forward position on SUNNY YING and if the pace of the race was only fair, he had the option of continuing on into the lead.

He said SUNNY YING began only fairly and he had to ride the horse along in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

He said making the first turn he was left racing wide and therefore he allowed SUNNY YING to continue on into a more forward position to obtain a position closer to the rail.

He said that due to the circumstances of the race in the early stages, more use had to be made of SUNNY YING than was anticipated.

He said rounding the Home Turn on the first occasion he was content to allow SUNNY YING to race outside MIGHTY HIGH, however, when that horse was steadied by its rider, he elected to allow SUNNY YING to improve into the lead and dictate the terms of the race.

He added that SUNNY YING travelled comfortably throughout the race, however, came under pressure in the Straight and did not close off as strongly as it had done in recent races.

He said based on the manner in which SUNNY YING failed to close off the race, he was of the opinion that the horse may be better suited ridden behind the speed if circumstances permit.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of REAL GENEROUS, T Angland stated that his mount travelled strongly in the middle stages when the tempo of the race was modest.

He said when the tempo quickened appreciably rounding the Home Turn, REAL GENEROUS did not show a turn of foot and despite being placed under heavy pressure failed to close off the race.

He said he was not able to offer any explanation for the horses disappointing performance, but did note after the race the horse had lost its right front plate.

He added that despite the horse losing a plate, REAL GENEROUS did not feel uncomfortable in its action at any stage during the race.

Mr C H Yip, the trainer of REAL GENEROUS, stated that he was at a loss to explain the disappointing performance.

He said REAL GENEROUS had given him every indication that it would handle the distance of tonights race.

He said although REAL GENEROUS lost a plate at some stage during the race, the horse appeared sound after the race and in light of tonights performance, it is his intention to give it a freshen up.

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

REAL GENEROUS, WILLIE CAZALS and VICTOR DELIGHT were sent for sampling.
