Recap by phillip woo

Super Strike continued his consistent run when fending off Mobile King over the final 120m after hitting the front 150m out following a handy run in fifth and one off the rails to chalk up a narrow win with late-market action. Mobile King settled third from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend with one wider out and ran on willingly, despite a tendency to shift inwards to make it a ding-dong finish. Ambassadorship was switch off at the rear from the widest gate, turned the final corner deepest out and ran on willingly. He was returning off a break and will be hard to beat when next stepping out. Optimization Star recovered to settle midfield and on the rails after a sluggish break, came two off upon straightening, drew level for the front at the 200m and found the top-three too smart over the last 100m. Panther Run was strung up in traffic while straightening one off the rails, shifted into the clear at the 250m and ran on steadily. Favourite Let's Goal kept on evenly after getting sandwiched between runners at the 250m. Bosambo had an easy time on the lead but was giving way passing the 150m. Golden Osmanthus travelled on the back of the speed in second and was stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (585)-SOUTH CHINA SEA HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Metres

From wide barriers, MOBILE KING and AMBASSADORSHIP were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1300 Metres, AFRICA LIGHT was momentarily crowded for room inside PANTHER RUN which itself was racing tight inside LETS GOAL.

Near the 400 Metres, OPTIMIZATION STAR was shifted to the inside of COMPACT YARN to find clear running after being momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse.

PANTHER RUN had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Near the 300 Metres, LETS GOAL was hampered when crowded for room inside MOBILE KING (G Mossé) which shifted in.

G Mossé was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care in future.

After this incident, MOBILE KING continued to lay in under pressure.

Near the 150 Metres, PANTHER RUN momentarily raced in restricted room between SUPER STRIKE and MOBILE KING.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of LETS GOAL, D Whyte stated that although he attempted to obtain a forward position, LETS GOAL did not show any early speed despite being ridden along.

He said LETS GOAL did not travel comfortably at any stage and although hampered near the 300 Metres was most disappointing in its failure to run on in the Straight.

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

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

LETS GOAL, SUPER STRIKE and MOBILE KING were sent for sampling.
