Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Brilliant Dream landed a nice spot one off in fourth, swept to the lead five deep at the 120m and kept on well for the win despite a tendency to lay in under pressure. Numero Uno allowed Kynam to cross for the lead before sitting outside that one at the 900m, reclaimed the front 200m out and kept on gamely for second. Kynam cornered a half-length on top and grudgingly gave way when headed. Beauty Journey sat in the box seat, straightened three deep and kept plugging away without getting to the placegetters. Marvel Tribe travelled deep with some cover behind midfield from a wide gate, swung the final bend two from the right and ran on steadily without menacing. Strathtay made only a mild bid after travelling between horses worse than midfield. Jun Gong was one-paced after rail's run in midfield. Newcomer Born In China never got into the act after travelling without cover third from the rear after drawing widest out as the second favourite.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (204)-CHEVALIER SENIOR HOUSING HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Metres

STRATHTAY began awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, JUN GONG was crowded for room between BEAUTY JOURNEY and KYNAM which was taken out by NUMERO UNO.

Also shortly after the start, WEALTHY FORTUNE was steadied when crowded for rom between BEAUTY JOURNEY and BRILLIANT DREAM which shifted in.

A short distance after this, BRILLIANT DREAM was bumped by PERCY JACKSON which shifted in.

After racing in restricted room between HAPPY AND HEALTHY and MARVEL TRIBE, FUN TAPESTRY was shifted across behind runners shortly after the start.

From a wide barrier, DOUBLE POINT was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 1300 Metres, FUN TAPESTRY was checked away from the heels of PEARL WIN.

Rounding the Home Turn, JUN GONG got its head on the side and lay in.

Near the 200 Metres, PEARL WIN was shifted in away from the heels of STRATHTAY.

U Rispoli (JUN GONG) dropped his whip at the 150 Metres.

Throughout the race, HAPPY AND HEALTHY travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, H W Lai stated that he had been asked to obtain a midfield position with cover on PEARL WIN if possible.

He said it was felt that due to the makeup of the field with a number of speedy runners being drawn inside PEARL WIN, if the horse were to be ridden to obtain a forward position as had been the case in the past, there was a likelihood that PEARL WIN would be left racing wide and without cover.

He said with the anticipated early speed it was hoped that the field would break up and that PEARL WIN would be able to obtain a midfield position, however, due to the circumstances of the race in the early stages, he was obliged to settle back further than had been intended to obtain cover as PERCY JACKSON, which was drawn to his immediate inside, initially began well before being steadied in the early stages.

When questioned regarding the performance of BORN IN CHINA, D Whyte stated that it had been intended for BORN IN CHINA to be ridden on the pace as horses ridden in forward positions had appeared to be advantaged by today's track, however, he was asked not to ride BORN IN CHINA too vigorously to achieve this.

He said after initially parading satisfactorily, BORN IN CHINA, which was having its first race start in Hong Kong, became fractious behind the barriers and sweated badly and after being placed in the barriers would not stand still.

He said he initially rode BORN IN CHINA along in the early stages, however, with a number of runners including MARVEL TRIBE and HAPPY AND HEALTHY, which were drawn inside BORN TO WIN, maintaining their positions, he felt that he would have had to make too much use of the horse to clear those horses and that were BORN IN CHINA to be ridden along to do this, it could have been left racing wide and without cover.

He said he therefore attempted to shift the horse across behind runners in the early stages and obtain a position with cover.

He added BORN IN CHINA initially proved difficult to settle when being steadied, however, he was able to obtain cover behind MARVEL TRIBE near the 800 Metres.

He said after this BORN IN CHINA travelled only fairly and after being shifted to the outside of runners in the early part of the Straight did not finish off the race.

He said whilst BORN IN CHINA was disappointing, the fact that it sweated up badly behind the barriers and then was obliged to race further back in the field than had been intended, the horse, in his opinion, did have some excuses.

A veterinary inspection of BORN IN CHINA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BRILLIANT DREAM and NUMERO UNO were sent for sampling.
