Recap by phillip woo

Firming late, Berlinski tracked the leader Star Of Bond one off the rails, advanced to the front three deep at the 200m and kept on well for the win. Star Of Bond pressed forward to lead from the widest gate, cornered a length on top and grudgingly gave way. Odds-on favourite Eye On You enjoyed the box-seat run, came one off upon straightening and just got by King Of Household late for third in his initial run in Hong Kong. King Of Household settled fifth and one off the rails, pushed out three-to-four deep coming to the final bend, advanced to third at the 200m and peaked on his run in the final 50m. Lucky Day was a distant last after a sluggish break, still had all ahead of him at the 300m, angled into the clear with one wider at the 200m and ran on all right without menacing. Sparkling B settled midfield along the rails, straightened near the inside and only held his ground. Psychologist faded after a no-cover run near the speed.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (635)-YUEN CHAU TSAI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

LUCKY FOLLOW ME was withdrawn on 16.5.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore).

MIGHTY K was also withdrawn on 16.5.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetence).

SLICK BULLET, Standby Declared Starter, was withdrawn on 16.5.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (sore right front fetlock).

MR GINGER was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (swollen right front fetlock).

Before being allowed to race again, LUCKY FOLLOW ME, MIGHTY K, SLICK BULLET and MR GINGER will all be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

LUCKY DAY was slow to begin and despite being vigorously ridden along failed to muster speed and then in the middle stages became detached from the main body of the field.

Approaching the 600 Metres, PSYCHOLOGIST was taken wider by KING OF HOUSEHOLD which shifted to the outside of BERLINSKI.

When questioned, C Y Ho stated that he had been instructed to shift PSYCHOLOGIST across behind runners in the early stages as the horse had raced best when being ridden from off the speed.

He said PSYCHOLOGIST began very well today and at no stage did he ride his mount along, rather he steadied PSYCHOLOGIST in the early stages in an attempt to comply with his instructions.

He said however that as the tempo of the race in the early stages was slow, PSYCHOLOGIST over-raced and he was not able to steady it and shift across behind runners despite his endeavours.

He said because of this PSYCHOLOGIST was left racing wide and without cover throughout the race when ridden in a more forward position than had been intended.

He added however that PSYCHOLOGIST's positioning in today's race was due to the manner in which the horse began and the tempo of the race in the early stages.

EYE ON YOU, BERLINSKI and STAR OF BOND were sent for sampling.
