Recap by phillip woo

Well-punted to jump second favourite, Happy Goal was ridden forward to lead from a wide gate, came to the final bend near two lengths on top and kept on gamely to continue his good purple patch of form of late. Late-fancied favourite Lyric Ace eventually slotted in midfield and one off the rails from a tricky gate, swung the final bend with three wider out, swept to second at the 150m and just held on for the Quinella spot. Early favourite Travel Master settled fourth along the rails, rallied five deep upon straightening and ran on steadily to edge out Bornfree for a placing following a stable change and drop in grade. Bornfree was patiently ridden second from the rear, angled four-to-five deep upon straightening and closed willingly in the final 150m to make it close for a placing. Cosmo One was keen while travelling second along the fence, came one off upon straightening and was yielding ground over the final 100m. Casa Junior came up one-paced over the final 200m along the inside after making a brief move early on in the straight from behind midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (057)-MERRIMENT HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

BORNFREE began only fairly.

FOREST COLOURS shifted in at the start and bumped KING OF SMARTS.

From a wide barrier, SHIFACHI TRADITION was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

In the early stages, LYRIC ACE got its head up when proving difficult to settle.

For some distance after the 700 Metres, LYRIC ACE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of KING OF SMARTS.

Approaching and passing the 200 Metres, FOREST COLOURS got its head on the side and lay in under pressure.

When questioned, Apprentice K C Ng (FOREST COLOURS) said that after obtaining a position behind TRAVEL MASTER at the 1000 Metres, he rode his mount along to maintain that position and so as not to allow LYRIC ACE, which at that time was racing to the outside of FOREST COLOURS, to shift in in front of FOREST COLOURS and obtain cover.

He said however that FOREST COLOURS did not respond to his urgings and rather than continuing to push his mount with the first turn approaching, he elected not to continue to pursue this position.

HAPPY GOAL and LYRIC ACE were sent for sampling.
