Recap by phillip woo

Level Player was posted three deep without cover in midfield, rounded the final bend with two wider out and finished up willingly to claim victory 40m out to land a betting move. Admiral Lord made his run behind midfield along the rails, was held up behind the tiring Ambitious Champion until getting to that one's outside for a clear run at the 250m and dashed nicely thereafter to snatch second on the line. He was a good horse beaten. Plunged late, Amber Dragon led early before settling one off in third passing the 1,400m, worked to the front three deep at the 150m and peaked on his run 50m out. Lucky Omens went back from a wide gate, came to the final bend with one behind him and three off the rails, switched into the clear with one wider at the 150m and ran on steadily to fill a First-4 spot. Short-priced favourite Let Me Go jumped well to find himself on the speed and one off the rails, was briefly posted three deep without cover when copping a bump from Amber Dragon at the 1,200m, sat outside the leader Ambitious Champion thereafter, assumed the front 300m out, came up flat at the 200m and giving ground 100m out. He's better ridden with patience.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (289)-LANTAU PEAK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Metres

DOUBLE GLORY began awkwardly and then was buffeted for room shortly after the start between ADMIRAL LORD and AMBITIOUS CHAMPION.

LET ME GO shifted out at the start and bumped LEVEL PLAYER.

From wide barriers, IMPERIAL CONCORDE and LUCKY OMENS were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the 1500 Metres, AMBITIOUS CHAMPION was allowed to stride forward into the lead when left racing wide.

Near the 1100 Metres, LEVEL PLAYER was left racing wide and without cover.

In the early part of the Straight, LUCKY OMENS got its head on the side, lay in and proved difficult to shift to the outside of DOUBLE GLORY into clear running.

After this, LUCKY OMENS continued to race with its head on the side.

ADMIRAL LORD was unable to obtain clear running until passing the 300 Metres.

At the 100 Metres, AMBER DRAGON and LEVEL PLAYER bumped due to both horses shifting ground.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that he had been instructed to ride LET ME GO in a position behind the speed with cover if possible.

He said it was anticipated that today's race would be run at a slow tempo, however, he expected DOUBLE GLORY and possibly IMPERIAL CONCORDE to take up forward positions and therefore it may be available for LET ME GO to obtain a position with cover behind those horses.

He said LET ME GO jumped very well and after DOUBLE GLORY was not able to show sufficient speed to lead, he was left with no option other than to allow his mount to maintain its position.

He added shortly after the start he observed AMBER DRAGON being ridden into a forward position and he shifted across with that horse, however, PERCY JACKSON maintained its position behind AMBER DRAGON which left LET ME GO racing without cover in the early stages.

He said when AMBITIOUS CHAMPION was allowed to improve its position near the 1500 Metres, he had hoped for that horse to have raced to the outside of AMBER DRAGON which would have provided LET ME GO with cover, however, AMBITIOUS CHAMPION continued forward into the lead.

He added when LET ME GO was subsequently taken into a three wide position without cover by AMBER DRAGON which shifted away from the rail approaching the 1300 Metres, he allowed LET ME GO to stride forward to race outside AMBITIOUS CHAMPION rather than remain racing three wide and without cover.

He said the circumstances of the race resulted in LET ME GO having to be ridden in a forward position without cover.

Trainer J Moore confirmed that he had instructed Jockey Purton to ride LET ME GO behind the speed with cover if possible.

A veterinary inspection of LET ME GO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of AMBITIOUS CHAMPION immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LET ME GO, LEVEL PLAYER and ADMIRAL LORD were sent for sampling.
