Recap by phillip woo

Lovely Boy went forward from a wide gate to settle one off a length away in second behind Joyful The Great, rushed to the front 200m out and kept on well for back-to-back wins despite a rise in grade. Pikachu bided his time behind midfield and one off the rails with cover, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished with purpose to grab second at only his third start. He's one to keep an eye on this season. Master Sommelier barged his way out five deep at the 300m following a rail's run in midfield and finished off reasonably well for a placing. Good Good View stayed to the inside upon straightening after travelling along the fence behind midfield and ran on steadily without menacing the placegetters. Happy Champion made his run third from the rear and was doing some nice work late with one wider out. Big Four was patiently ridden second from the rear and deep on the course, swung the final bend widest out and ran on without menacing. Joyful The Great couldn't keep up the gallop when headed after dictating the run through steady fractions.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (027)-SHENZHEN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

At the time of declarations, Z Purton was notified as the rider of WORLD CITY.

It had subsequently been established that Jockey Purton was not properly engaged to ride that horse and was unable to fulfil the engagement as he would not be able to make the horse's allocated weight of 120 lbs.

Accordingly the Stewards approved for W M Lai to be substituted as the rider of WORLD CITY.

Trainer T P Yung was fined the sum of $4,000 for failing to properly engage Z Purton as the rider of WORLD CITY prior to declaring him as the rider of that horse.

NAUGHTY BABY was slow to begin.

GREAT RUN, which was leaning on the outside of its stall, began awkwardly.

Despite being vigorously ridden in the early stages, MIGHTY EQUUS took time to muster speed.

For some distance passing the 1000 Metres, WORLD CITY got its head up on a number of occasions when proving very difficult to settle.

MASTER SOMMELIER had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and approaching the 300 Metres made contact with MIGHTY EQUUS when improving into tight running between that horse and WORLD CITY.

At the 400 Metres, PIKACHU was shifted out away from the heels of ULTIMATE WINNERS.

Over the final 200 Metres, PIKACHU got its head on the side and lay in under pressure.

A veterinary inspection of NAUGHTY BABY and WORLD CITY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MASTER SOMMELIER, LOVELY BOY and PIKACHU were sent for sampling.
