Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite, Southern Springs eased into a one-out, one-back spot after jumping well, cornered in four deep, swept to the front 200m out and kept on gamely for the win. He was suited by the step up to the mile with a run underneath his belt. Early favourite Happy Kaiser enjoyed a dream run on the back of the speed underneath Southern Springs, stayed to the inside upon straightening and stayed on gamely to just hold second from the fast-finishing Bamboo Dance, who came on five deep after settled midfield along the fence. Spicy Siam settled fourth from the rear along the rails, stuck to the paint upon straightening and ran on steadily. Namjong Turbo was posted three deep early on before sitting outside the leader passing the 1,200m, straightened three deep and condition gave way over the final 100m. Humongus was making late headway late, while Top Power was one-paced after a three-deep trip in midfield with cover. Horseshoe Fortune didn't make much of an impression, along with Fiery Patrol. Epee De Hua rolled forward one off the fence to assume the lead 1,200m out and was gone 300m out. Smart Guy was never on the course near the speed.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (020)-DONGGUAN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1600Metres

BAMBOO DANCE and SPICY SIAM were slow to begin.

Rounding the Home Turn, EPEE DE HUA got its head on the side and lay out.

At the entrance to the Straight, FIERY PATROL was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of TOP POWER when being shifted to the outside of that horse into clear running.

After the 200 Metres, HUMONGUS got its head on the side and hung in under pressure.

Over the final 100 Metres, SPICY SIAM was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY KAISER.

Because of this, SPICY SIAM was not able to be fully tested in the run to the line.

When questioned, H W Lai stated that, from barrier 3, he had been asked to ride SMART GUY in about 4th or 5th position if possible.

He said after beginning well, he obtained a position one horse off the fence behind SOUTHERN SPRINGS which he expected to shift across to a position on the rail after the 1300 Metres.

He said as SOUTHERN SPRINGS was not clear of HAPPY KAISER after the 1200 Metres, SOUTHERN SPRINGS remained racing in a one-off position and as SMART GUY was racing to the outside of SOUTHERN SPRINGS at this time, SMART GUY was then left racing in a three wide position and after the 1100 Metres was left racing without cover.

A veterinary inspection of SMART GUY immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being allowed to race again, SMART GUY will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that EPEE DE HUA had bled from both nostrils.

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

SOUTHERN SPRINGS and HAPPY KAISER were sent for sampling.
