Recap by phillip woo

Newcomer Blizzard was handy to the speed and three off the rails, worked to share the lead at the 350m with Excitable Boy and took control 200m out with money pouring into him late to make him the post-time favourite. He's a nice find by the trainer Ricky Yiu Poon-fai and will have more wins coming. Mellifluent settled midfield in the center of the course from an inside gate, shifted the heels of Blizzard at the 150m and finished well to grab Excitable Boy 50m out for second. The honest Excitable Boy led two from the outside fence and grudgingly gave way late. Modern Fortune settled fourth from the rear and one off the outside, switched underneath runners at the 400m and ran on nicely to edge out Elegant Frames in a much-improved second-up run. Elegant Frames ran on steadily after travelling worse than midfield and one off the stands side to make it close for a First-4 spot. Hayhay only held his ground after travelling underneath Blizzard. Early favourite Multimax kept on evenly.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (251)-YIN KONG HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Metres

At declaration time, D Whyte was declared as the rider of both HAYHAY and YAT DING WIN.

It was established that D Whyte had a firm commitment to ride HAYHAY.

As such, the Stewards permitted C Y Ho to be substituted as the rider of YAT DING WIN.

For this declaration error, Trainer D Cruz was fined $2,000.

SUM WIN DRAGON was withdrawn on 18.12.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left front foot) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter SILVER MISSION.

Before being allowed to race again, SUM WIN DRAGON will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

MELLIFLUENT began only fairly and then shortly after the start became unbalanced after being bumped by SHOOTING STAR which was taken out by SUCCESS ROAD.

BLIZZARD was slow to begin.

MULTIMAX bounded in the air at the start, then shifted out and bumped TO-KALON.

JOYFUL LUCK, which was leaning on the inside of its stall, began awkwardly.

BLIZZARD travelled keenly in the early stages and got its head up on a number of occasions when being steadied to allow YAT DING WIN to cross.

After the 700 Metres, YAT DING WIN raced in restricted room between EXCITABLE BOY and MULTIMAX which was inclined to lay in.

After the 400 Metres, MELLIFLUENT was steadied out away from the heels of HAYHAY.

Over the concluding stages, MULTIMAX was not able to be ridden out due to being checked away from the heels of EXCITABLE BOY.

A veterinary inspection of YAT DING WIN immediately following the race revealed the horse to have bled from both nostrils.

A veterinary inspection of SUCCESS ROAD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BLIZZARD and MELLIFLUENT were sent for sampling.
