Recap by phillip woo

Drifting in the market, Forza rolled forward three deep to eventually settle one off the rails in second at the 650m, poked his head in front three deep at the 100m and just held on for the win to make it three successes on the trot. Favourite Happy Champion settled nicely in midfield and one off the rails, straightened five deep and was cutting back the margin with each stride to just fall short. Well Done led as expected off a feather weight, cornered nearly two lengths clear and came up on the short end of a blanket finish. Lord Dragon settled behind midfield and one off the rails, turned the final bend with three wider out and let down reasonably well to get up next best. He's more effective over the 1,400m. Supported late at odds, No Ties made his run fourth from the rear and one off the fence, straightened three-to-four deep and was getting going late when the race was all but over. Good Hong Kong was ridden with patience third from the rear from a wide gate, turned the final corner with two wider out and made some ground late without menacing. Novel Start settled three deep without cover in midfield and was battling on one-paced at the 200m after corning widest out. Victory General was struggling 150m out in a disappointing effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (015)-REPULSE BAY HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

ONE MORE KNIGHT began awkwardly, shifted in and in doing so made contact with the hindquarters of WELL DONE which was being turned out across the running of ONE MORE KNIGHT.

TIME WINNER knuckled over at the start after beginning very awkwardly, shifted in and made contact with the hindquarters of LORD DRAGON which became badly unbalanced.

As the start was effected, FORZA lifted its front feet off the ground and began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, NO TIES, CROATIA and GOOD HONG KONG were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Making the first turn near the 1000 Metres, CROATIA got its head up and shifted out abruptly across the heels of GOOD HONG KONG, resulting in CROATIA having to be checked and losing significant ground.

The racing manners of CROATIA were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, CROATIA will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial around a bend.

After the 900 Metres, TIME WINNER shifted in towards the running rail and became unbalanced.

After the 700 Metres, NOVEL START was left racing wide and without cover.

In the Straight, GOOD HONG KONG lay in under pressure.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of VICTORY GENERAL, Z Purton stated that the horse travelled on and off the bridle throughout the race.

He said making the turn after the 600 Metres VICTORY GENERAL became unbalanced in its action and after this came off the bridle.

He said he placed the horse under pressure rounding the Home Turn, however, VICTORY GENERAL did not respond to his riding and was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race.

He added whilst VICTORY GENERAL did shift ground on a number of occasions in the Straight, the horse had done this previously when giving ground in its races.

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

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

FORZA and HAPPY CHAMPION were sent for sampling.
