Recap by phillip woo

Well-fancied late, Charity Joy worked hard to narrowly lead without cover, built a length advantage three deep at the 250m and held off the late surge of favourite Braveness for a first win at his fifth start. Braveness recovered off a sluggish break to travel a handy fifth, cornered one off the rails and finished up well without getting to the winner. Eastern Promise burled through to hold the rails underneath Charity Joy, stayed to the inside upon straightening and couldn't match strides with the Quinella pair over the final 100m. Oriental Prosper settled without cover in third from a wide gate, straightened four deep and held his ground without ever looking a threat of placing. Hawthorne was handy along the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out and failed to let down when popped the question in a disappointing performance. Triumphant Eagle was posted three-to-four deep without much cover in midfield from a wide gate, rounded the last corner widest out and made some ground without menacing. Calling With Love travelled third from the rear and one off the rails, cornered with one wider out and only kept on passed beaten rivals.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (144)-POPLAR HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

ROCKET LET WIN was bumped at the start by JUN DAO which shifted out.

Shortly after the start, HELENE'S CHOICE, which was slow to begin, was checked when crowded for room between ROMAN WIN and EASTERN PROMISE which shifted out.

After the 300 Metres, BRAVENESS was momentarily inconvenienced when awkwardly placed inside the heels of CHARITY JOY which shifted in.

Approaching the 100 Metres, EASTERN PROMISE momentarily raced tight inside BRAVENESS which in the Straight got its head on the side and hung in under pressure.

The Stewards opened an inquiry into C K Tong's riding of CALLING WITH LOVE, particularly after the 400 Metres.

After taking evidence from C K Tong, Mr C K Chung, assistant trainer allocated to Trainer C Fownes' stable, and Ms F Fownes, personal assistant to Mr Fownes, the inquiry was adjourned until a date to be fixed.

A veterinary inspection of JUN DAO and CALLING WITH LOVE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

CHARITY JOY and BRAVENESS were sent for sampling.
