Recap by phillip woo

Hypersonic was patiently ridden second from the rear and two off the rails from a wide gate, took off passing the 800m to get to midfield coming to the final bend, cornered with two wider out and ran down Eagle Power 100m out for a second straight all-weather track victory, despite a step up in distance. Firming favourite Eagle Power was posted three deep without cover in fourth, rolled to the front five deep at the 250m and found one better on the day. It was a nice effort in defeat and he remains one to follow on this surface. Mr Medici travelled four-to-five deep with some cover behind midfield from a wide gate, rounded the final bend with three wider out and finished up nicely to inject value into the tierce. He was suited by the wet conditions. Free Judgement was doing his best work late to nail Wah May Star for a First-4 spot. Wah May Star rolled forward from a wide gate to lead at the 1,400m through genuine fractions, came to the final bend two lengths on top and was yielding ground over the final 150m. .

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (247)-SHAN PUI RIVER HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650Metres

At the time of declarations, W C Marwing was declared to ride GOOD CHOICE at 115 lbs plus 2 lbs allowable overweight.

Following the running of Race 7, W C Marwing advised that he would not be able to ride GOOD CHOICE at the declared weight.

It was ascertained that there was no other eligible rider who was able to ride GOOD CHOICE at its allocated weight even with allowable overweight.

Mr S Woods, the trainer of GOOD CHOICE, advised the Stewards that he was comfortable for W C Marwing to ride GOOD CHOICE 3 lbs overweight.

Acting under the powers of Rule 82(3), the Stewards approved for Jockey Marwing to ride GOOD CHOICE 3 lbs overweight and an announcement was made to this effect.

W C Marwing was subsequently fined the sum of $5,000.

SILVER GRECIAN was slow to begin.

CHEETAH BOY began awkwardly.

Near the 1300 Metres, GIANT'S STEPS got its head up when travelling keenly and awkwardly placed close to the heels of SUPREME FALCON.

Throughout the race, EAGLE POWER travelled wide and without cover.

The performances of PACKING OK and CHEETAH BOY which finished tailed out, were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, PACKING OK and CHEETAH BOY will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned, D Whyte stated that SILVER GRECIAN, in his opinion, did not perform in the race as it did not appreciate the significant amount of kickback that it received.

A veterinary inspection of SILVER GRECIAN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on GIANT'S STEPS at the request of Trainer W Y So.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea and confirmed the horse to be a "roarer".
