Recap by phillip woo

Firming late, Rumba King was handy without cover in the run, cornered five deep, hit the front 250m out and kept on willingly for an easy win over his preferred trip. Late-fancied favourite Winning Instinct settled third from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished strongly to grab second close to home. Great Sky settled behind midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with two wider out, briefly hit second passing the 50m and just shrugged off Cheetah Boy for a placing. Cheetah Boy travelled fourth and one off the rails, had three further out upon straightening and stayed on reasonably well to just miss a placing. En Civil kept on evenly following a box-seat run. Sight Believer made his run three back along the rails, cornered four deep and failed to find when popped the question. Early favourite Caga Force assumed the lead from You Are The One at the 1,050m, cornered a whisker on top and was stopping badly at the 200m in his initial run with blinkers for his new trainer.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (031)-LEK YUEN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

As the start was effected, SIGHT BELIEVER lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently began only fairly.

Then a short distance after the start, SIGHT BELIEVER was steadied away from the heels of CHEETAH BOY which shifted out.

WINNING INSTINCT shifted out at the start, resulting in CAGA FORCE being hampered.

ALL WIN BOY was tardy to begin.

After the 600 Metres, SIGHT BELIEVER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of EN CIVIL.

Rounding the Home Turn, GREAT SKY and CHEETAH BOY raced tight due to CHEETAH BOY shifting out to obtain clear running.

In the Straight, CHEETAH BOY got its head on the side and lay out under pressure, resulting in GREAT SKY being inconvenienced in the early part of the Straight and again near the 100 Metres.

Throughout the race, RUMBA KING travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, D Whyte reported that he was unable to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of CAGA FORCE.

He said the horse travelled satisfactorily in the early and middle stages, however, after coming under pressure near the 400 Metres was most disappointing in the manner in which it weakened out of the race in the Straight.

Mr C S Shum, the trainer of CAGA FORCE, was unable to offer any explanation for the horse's disappointing performance other than it may not have been suited by the addition of blinkers.

He said he had studied the videos of CAGA FORCE, which was having its first start for his stable tonight, and he was of the belief that the horse was not finishing off its races.

He said it was for this reason that he applied blinkers to the horse.

He said CAGA FORCE's track work in this piece of gear had indicated that it would benefit from wearing it, however, in tonight's race, he felt the horse was inclined to race too keenly with the blinkers and therefore he would consider altering the horse's gear in its future starts.

A veterinary inspection of CAGA FORCE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of CAGA FORCE was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, CAGA FORCE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of SIGHT BELIEVER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

RUMBA KING and WINNING INSTINCT were sent for sampling.
