Recap by phillip woo

Confidently-backed late to jump favourite, Star Of Bond easily found the lead from gate five, was tackled by Key Witness at the 700m, cornered a half-length on top, was headed by All The Best at the 250m and game fought back to regain victory 50m out to remain unbeaten in three starts for rookie trainer Benno Yung this season. Tango Fire settled fourth and one off the rails, swung the final bend five-to-six deep and kept coming late to snare second close to home. All The Best enjoyed a sweet run on the back of the speed, worked to the lead 250m out and condition just gave out in the final 50m in a pleasing debut. He appears to have a bright future in Hong Kong. Tarzan I Am travelled fifth and one off the rails, straightened four deep and was running on reasonably well over the final 100m to just edge Sparkling B for fourth. Rolled-up in betting, Sparkling B was patiently ridden third from the rear and one off the paint, swung the final bend with one wider out and was doing some nice work late. Early favourite Key Witness was posted without cover three deep near the speed, was still in a tussle for the front at 150m and succumbed 50m out. Formula Won settled midfield along the rails, rounded the final bend three-to-four deep and was getting going late without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (441)-COLOANE HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

ALL THE BEST was difficult to load.

Before being allowed to race again, ALL THE BEST will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

INTELLECTUAL GLIDE lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected, shifted out and in doing so bumped SPARKLING B which began awkwardly.

TARZAN I AM began awkwardly, shifted in and in doing so made contact with ALL THE BEST on two occasions, causing that horse to become unbalanced.

From the outside barriers, CHEERS JOY and BEAUTY AHEAD were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, TANGO FIRE was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of STAR OF BOND.

STAR OF BOND got its head on the side and hung out rounding the Home Turn.

At the entrance to the Straight, CHEERS JOY was shifted out away from the heels of FORMULA WON.

When questioned, M Chadwick stated that he had been instructed to ride KEY WITNESS positively in the early stages and take up a forward position.

He said it was hoped that KEY WITNESS would be able to race in about 3rd or 4th position if the circumstances of the race in the early stages proceeded as anticipated.

He said in accordance with his instructions he rode his mount aggressively in the early stages, however, a number of runners to his inside were also ridden positively and he had to make more use of KEY WITNESS to cross runners to his inside and ultimately obtain a position outside the leader STAR OF BOND.

He added KEY WITNESS then travelled satisfactorily, however, came under pressure at the 200 Metres.

He said whilst the horse did not close off the race, he attributed this to the amount of use that he had to make of KEY WITNESS to cross runners to his inside in the early stages.

Trainer A S Cruz stated it had been hoped that although KEY WITNESS started from barrier 9, the horse would be able to obtain cover in a forward position.

He said although KEY WITNESS came from the rear of the field at its most recent start when successful, it had not been intended for the horse to be ridden in that manner and his instructions to Jockey Chadwick were identical to those given to its rider at its last start when the circumstances of the race resulted in the horse being ridden well back.

He said whilst he was disappointed that KEY WITNESS had not been able to be ridden with cover today, he felt that the circumstances of the race in the early stages resulted in the horse having to be ridden outside the lead as it was travelling very wide in the run to the first turn.

He added, wherever possible, KEY WITNESS will be ridden with cover in the future.

A veterinary inspection of G-ONE LEADER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

STAR OF BOND and TANGO FIRE were sent for sampling.
