Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Distinct Commander settled fourth and one off the rails, swung the final bend five deep, shifted in sharply after quickening to lead 200m out and kept on nicely for a maiden win at his ninth start. Joyful Luck settled midfield and three deep without cover from a wide alley, rounded the final bend with one wider out and finished nicely to grab a Quinella spot 50m out. Happy Goal was ridden along under a light weight to cross to the front at the 800m, cornered nearly two lengths on top and grudgingly gave way late to just hold third with money coming for him late. Another late-punted rival, Jolly Posh settled fore of midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend six deep and kept grinding away to just miss a placing. Everyone's Choice settled fifth along the rails, angled one off at the 250m and kept plugging away to finish just out of the placings in a better performance. Shantaraam travelled behind midfield along the rails, rallied four deep upon straightening and made some ground over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (648)-CHEERS HONG KONG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

As the start was effected, PROSPERITY AETHON, which was leaning on the inside of its stall, bounded in the air and consequently was slow to begin.

JUST GOOD began awkwardly and lost ground.

Shortly after the start, DIAMOND START was crowded for room between JOLLY POSH and HAPPY GOAL which shifted out.

From wide barriers, MIGHT AND VISION and GLAMOROUS RYDER were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1000 Metres, EVERYONE'S CHOICE got its head up when travelling keenly.

MIGHT AND VISION lost its left front plate near the 350 Metres.

Passing the 300 Metres, JUST GOOD was shifted out away from the heels of SHANTARAAM when disappointed for running between that horse and HAPPILY TIME which was giving ground abruptly.

Approaching the 200 Metres, DIAMOND START momentarily raced in restricted room between MIGHT AND VISION and PROSPERITY AETHON which was taken out by KOWLOON EAST KING which shifted ground when weakening.

Passing the 100 Metres, EVERYONE'S CHOICE and SHANTARAAM bumped.

Then over the concluding stages, SHANTARAAM raced in restricted room between EVERYONE'S CHOICE and JOLLY POSH which was racing inside the heels of JOYFUL LUCK.

Throughout the race, KOWLOON EAST KING travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, J Moreira reported that after missing the start PROSPERITY AETHON appeared to him to be reluctant to race as the horse did not travel comfortably at any stage of the event.

A veterinary inspection of PROSPERITY AETHON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPILY TIME immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and an endoscopic examination found the horse to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.

Before being allowed to race again, HAPPILY TIME will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on KOWLOON EAST KING at the request of Trainer T P Yung.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, KOWLOON EAST KING will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

DISTINCT COMMANDER and JOYFUL LUCK were sent for sampling.
