Recap by phillip woo

Telecom Supremo settled in the box-seat along the rails, advanced to the front 300m out and kept up a good gallop to the wire. Hear The Roar was ridden cold at the rear, swung the final bend widest out and let down well to grab second 100m out. Enjoy The Game was posted without cover in third, straightened five deep and ran on steadily to wear down Bamboo Dance in the shadows of the post for a placing. Bamboo Dance settled behind midfield along the rails, straightened nearly three deep and kept grinding away to just miss a placing. Namjong Turbo assumed the front from Liberal Of Mind after parking one off in second, worked to the front 600m out and knocked up inside the 200m. Favourite Mobile King settled midfield and two off the rails with cover, made some ground early straight with two wider out and came up flat 250m out. Perfect Triumph failed to live up to a win on his season debut when making no impression from near the back despite a favourite pace. Liberal Of Mind knocked up after dictating a good pace.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (075)-TONG FUK HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

ENJOY THE GAME began awkwardly.

Passing the 1500 Metres, a piece of lead being carried underneath the saddle of K Teetan (ENJOY THE GAME) was dislodged.

It was subsequently ascertained that this piece of lead weighed 0.2 lb.

After initially weighing out at 119 lbs, Jockey Teetan weighed in at 118.9 lbs.

As the Rules provide that a rider is allowed 1 lb underweight, weighed-in was declared on the numbers semaphored by the Judge.

It was subsequently established that the piece of lead became dislodged as a result of the use of a defective lead bag which was supplied to Jockey Teetan by the Jockeys' Room valet.

This piece of gear was confiscated and the appropriate official was spoken to regarding the maintenance of gear.

The performance of LIBERAL OF MIND, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

When questioned regarding the performance of MOBILE KING, N Rawiller stated that he had been instructed to lead or be close to the lead if possible.

He said however that as the start was effected, MOBILE KING lifted its front feet off the ground and because of this lost ground, resulting in the horse having to race back in the field and in a three wide position.

He said whilst MOBILE KING did not close off strongly, he felt that this was due to the circumstances given that MOBILE KING was not able to assume a forward position in the race.

A veterinary inspection of MOBILE KING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of PERFECT TRIUMPH which was successful at its last start, W M Lai stated that the horse travelled fairly in the run and after initially quickening in the early part of the Straight, the horse's run ended at about the 200 Metres.

He said having this in mind, he recommended to connections that the 1800 Metres of today's race may have been too far at this stage of the horse's career and that PERFECT TRIUMPH may be better suited by being brought back in distance to 1600 Metres, a distance at which it was successful at its most recent start.

A veterinary inspection of PERFECT TRIUMPH immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that FLUKE had sustained a cut to the left front fetlock.

MOBILE KING, TELECOM SUPREMO and HEAR THE ROAR were sent for sampling.
