Recap by phillip woo

No Ties settled three back along the rails in midfield, straightened three deep and split runners to take control 100m out for a maiden win at his 25th start. Danesouth settled third from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend widest out and finished willingly to make it close on the wire. Punted late to jump favourite, Billion Gains enjoyed the gun run, drew level for the front along the rails at the 200m and came up one-paced final 100m. Master Gunner settled second from the rear, straightened two off the rails and ran on steadily with clear running to snatch fourth ahead of Optimization Star, who settled at or next-to-last following a slow break and was doing his best work late. The latter seems to go better at Sha Tin. Oriental Fantasia weakened final 200m after dictating an even pace. Marvel Plus settled outside No Ties in the run, came out three deep with cover at the 800m, circled the field at the 500m to eventually poke his head in front at the 200m and peaked on his run 100m out. Winning Advantage settled fifth and one off the rails, pushed into the clear with three wider out at the 200m and only held his ground. Early favourite Hong Kong Fat travelled behind midfield and one off the rails, and gave up the chase following a bad check between runners at the 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (427)-FA HUI HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

MASTER GUNNER was slow to begin.

OPTIMIZATION STAR began awkwardly and shortly after the start was steadied when crowded for room between HONG KONG FAT and NO TIES which shifted out.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, DANESOUTH failed to muster speed and approaching the winning post on the first occasion was taken across behind runners to obtain cover.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, IT CAN ONLY BE YOU was hampered when crowded for room inside NO TIES which got its head on the side and shifted in when awkwardly placed inside the heels of MARVEL PLUS.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, IT CAN ONLY BE YOU became unbalanced when momentarily crowded for room inside NO TIES which again got its head on the side and shifted in marginally.

After the 500 Metres, WINNING ADVANTAGE raced tight between NO TIES and GOOD TIMES ROLL which shifted in marginally when MARVEL PLUS improved to its outside.

Approaching the 150 Metres, HONG KONG FAT was checked when crowded for room between DANESOUTH which shifted in marginally and GOOD TIMES ROLL which, after being bumped by WINNING ADVANTAGE (C Y Ho), shifted out considerably away from that horse.

C Y Ho was severely reprimanded and advised that whilst GOOD TIMES ROLL had over-reacted to the contact with WINNING ADVANTAGE, nonetheless he should have made a far greater effort to straighten his mount sooner than he did on this occasion.

In the Straight, MARVEL PLUS lay in under pressure.

For the majority of the race, GOOD TIMES ROLL travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of HONG KONG FAT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BILLION GAINS, NO TIES and DANESOUTH were sent for sampling.
