Recap by phillip woo

Sichuan Exec jumped smoothly to lead uncontested early on from gate 12, had company when Smart Ball poked his head in front at the 900m, reclaimed the front upon straightening, built a two-length advantage at the 200m and just held off the late surge of firming favourite Big Four for the win with money coming for him late. Big Four settled behind midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend six deep and was closing with every stride to make it interesting in the finish. Smart Ball tracked the leader one off before going forward to attack the leader at the 900m, was head at the top of the straight and kept battling on to just hold newcomer Gaoling Lucky Star for third. Gaoling Lucky Star travelled midfield and one off the rails, rallied four deep upon straightening and ran on steadily to just miss a placing. He looks to have a nice future in Hong Kong and will need to be kept safe over 1,400m and a mile when next stepping out. Plentiful travelled fore of midfield along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and made some progress to pick up a pay slip without ever looking like getting into the placings. Great Sky swung the final bend widest out and was doing his best work late without menacing. Plunged late, Great Charm was patiently ridden two off the rails second from the back, rounded the final bend with one wider out and ran on without threatening.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (408)-GRAND DELIGHT HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Metres

Whilst in the saddling stalls, BERLINI had its right hind plate refitted.

BERLINI was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

GREAT SKY proved difficult to load.

As this was second occasion this season that the horse had performed in such a manner at the barriers, the Stewards ruled that GREAT SKY must barrier trial satisfactorily prior to its next race start.

Whilst GREAT SKY proved difficult to load, BERLINI became fractious and got its right front leg over the adjoining stall.

BERLINI was removed from the barrier stalls and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of BERLINI.

As this was the second occasion on which BERLINI had been withdrawn due to being fractious in the barriers, the Stewards ruled that it will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination prior to its next race start.

SEA WARRIOR and GREAT CHARM bumped heavily at the start.

GREAT CHARM was then taken across behind runners in the early stages.

LOVING STAR was checked when crowded for room at the start between SMART BALL and ROCK THE TREE which shifted out.

GAOLING LUCKY STAR and NOBLE DE BEST bumped on jumping.

From the outside barrier, GREAT SKY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1300 Metres, GAOLING LUCKY STAR and ROCK THE TREE bumped, resulting in GAOLING LUCKY STAR becoming unbalanced, shifting out and making contact with the hindquarters of SUPREME FALCON which became unbalanced.

M Chadwick (SMART BALL) was severely reprimanded for directing his mount out away from the heels of SICHUAN EXEC after being crossed by that runner approaching the 1000 Metres which resulted in SMART BALL and SEA WARRIOR making contact on a number of occasions and both horses becoming unbalanced.

M Chadwick was advised that he must show due care when shifting ground in similar circumstances and it is incumbent upon him to steady his mount away from heels rather than shifting out and making contact with other runners.

After the 900 Metres, SUPREME FALCON was left racing wide and without cover.

For some distance after the 150 Metres, LOVING STAR was checked away from the heels of SEA WARRIOR which was giving ground.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SEA WARRIOR, B Prebble stated that despite being becoming unbalanced near the 1000 Metres when bumped by SMART BALL, SEA WARRIOR travelled well in a forward position.

He said however that SEA WARRIOR came under pressure rounding the Home Turn to maintain its position and in the Straight, despite being ridden out, gave ground.

He added after the race SEA WARRIOR appeared to be mildly distressed and to be breathing heavily.

A veterinary inspection of SEA WARRIOR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings other than a superficial wound to the left front leg.

The performance of SEA WARRIOR, which finished last, was considered unacceptable.

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

SICHUAN EXEC and BIG FOUR were sent for sampling.
