Recap by phillip woo

Family Interests recovered following a sluggish break to settle fore of midfield and one off the rails at the 1,000m, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished off well to get up close to home for a maiden win with money pouring into him late. It was only his fifth start and he has the tools to head higher. Joyful The Great enjoyed the box-seat run, advanced to the front near the inside at the 150m and found one too good in the end in a positive performance with a return to Class Four. Tomodachi cleared from gate eight 900m out to dictate the running, cornered nearly two lengths on top and grudgingly gave way late. Well-punted Hayhay settled fourth and one off the rails when hampered by Longwah Amber at the 850m, peeled five deep upon straightening and kept grinding away to just hold Happy Champion for a First-4 spot. Early favourite Longwah Amber hampered Hayhay when ridden along the from the widest gate to park second and one off the rails at the 800m, cornered three deep and kept on evenly over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (677)-HOLLY HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

FAMILY INTERESTS began only fairly.

HAPPY CHAMPION began awkwardly and shortly after the start was shifted across behind runners.

From wide barriers, YOU KNOW I WIN and CARRY THE ZEAL were also taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After initially being taken out by JOYFUL THE GREAT shortly after the start, POWER COOL shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of FRESH AIR which became unbalanced.

Near the 900 Metres, HAYHAY became unbalanced as a result of being heavily bumped on the hindquarters by LONGWAH AMBER which shifted in momentarily.

At the 400 Metres, YOU KNOW I WIN was checked away from the heels of POWER COOL.

For some distance after the 100 Metres, FRIENDS OF YAN OI was steadied after being disappointed for running between HAYHAY and LONGWAH AMBER which shifted out away from TOMODACHI which shifted out under pressure.

Then near the 50 Metres, FRIENDS OF YAN OI was shifted to the inside of the heels of LONGWAH AMBER to obtain clear running.

Close to the finishing line, LONGWAH AMBER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of TOMODACHI.

Because of this, LONGWAH AMBER was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

For the majority of the race, FRESH AIR travelled wide and without cover.

The Stewards opened an inquiry into W M Lai's handling of HAPPY HOMING.

After taking evidence from W M Lai and Mr C H Yip, the trainer of that horse, the inquiry was adjourned until a date to be fixed.

A veterinary inspection of POWER COOL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FAMILY INTERESTS and JOYFUL THE GREAT were sent for sampling.
