Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Fair Wind settled fore of midfield and one off the rails, straightened four deep and wore down second favourite Grand Plus just 30m out for back-to-back victories on the dirt track. Grand Plus went forward to settle a distant second in the run, advanced to the front 150m out and found one too good in the end. Confucius Elite settled third and two off the rails without cover from an awkward gate, rounded the final bend five deep and stayed on well to make it close for a second place. Easy Success went back from an outside alley, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished willingly to secure a Quartet spot. Mister Marc travelled third from the rear and one off the rails, pushed into the clear with one wider upon straightening and was doing his best work late without menacing. He will be definitely one to keep safe with a drop in grade. Specked late, Nazakat's Lad was bowling along the front, cornered near four lengths on top and was stalling 150m out. Jun Ju was ridden cold from the widest gate, swung the final bend deepest out and only passed beaten rivals. Maroon Prince settled midfield along the rails, stayed to the inside when straightening and was not bridging the gap late.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (718)-SHA KOK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

EXCITABLE BOY began only fairly.

NATURAL EIGHT began awkwardly, shifted out at the start and in doing so bumped the hindquarters of CONFUCIUS ELITE which became unbalanced.

From wide barriers, EASY SUCCESS and JUN JU were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 1100 Metres, MISTER MARC lost ground when being steadied away from the heels of DANEWIN WINNING.

MISTER MARC had difficulty obtaining clear running rounding the Home Turn.

Throughout the race, CONFUCIUS ELITE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, M Du Plessis stated that he had been asked to obtain a forward position on NAZAKAT'S LAD but if possible to obtain cover and it was felt that NAZAKAT'S LAD may be able to shift across to race towards the rail but that FAIR WIND, which was drawn wider than NAZAKAT'S LAD, may be ridden forward to lead which would provide NAZAKAT'S LAD with the opportunity to take a trailing position behind that horse.

He said in accordance with his instructions, he rode his mount along for a short distance after the start to cross GRAND PLUS to his inside.

He said when he did this NAZAKAT'S LAD immediately took charge and despite his endeavours would not relax and travelled too keenly in the lead.

He said this resulted in NAZAKAT'S LAD establishing a considerable margin over the remainder of the field, however, NAZAKAT'S LAD refused to respond to his attempts to have it settle.

He added he had viewed videos of the horse's previous runs and had noted that over the 1200 Metres NAZAKAT'S LAD had previously proved difficult to settle and this was also advised to him by Mr K W Lui, the trainer of the horse, prior to the race.

He said after the race he suggested to connections that they consider dropping NAZAKAT'S LAD back in distance to 1000 Metres and also consider removing the blinkers as the horse is racing far too keenly in this equipment over 1200 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of MAROON PRINCE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FAIR WIND and GRAND PLUS were sent for sampling.
