Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Lucky Omens travelled fourth from the rear and one off the rails after jumping tardily from gate one as is usual, cornered three deep and finished willingly to get up in the shadows of the post for the win. He loves this trip. Ambitious Champion enjoyed the box-seat run, pushed out five deep upon straightening and finished well to make it a thriller on the wire. Industrialist Way sat outside the lead France Valour, grabbed a narrow lead at the 200m and was swamped late in the final few metres. Supreme Fresh travelled effectively one-out, oneback, scraped to the front three deep at the 400m and finished on the bottom of a blanket finish. Turbo Jewellery swung the final bend six-to-seven deep and ran on steadily.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (269)-PAK TAM AU HANDICAP - Class 3 - 2000Metres

Trainer P F Yiu was fined the sum of $2,000 for declaring C Y Ho as the rider of AMBASSADORSHIP after having been advised by Jockey Ho that he would be unable to ride the horse at the allocated weight.

As such, the Stewards permitted Apprentice C Y Lui to be substituted as the rider of AMBASSADORSHIP.

LUCKY OMENS was slow to begin.

When being steadied in the early stages in order to be shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier, ARCHIPPUS got its head up on a number of occasions.

At the 500 Metres, WILLIE INVICTUS (K C Leung) shifted out and bumped AXIOM, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

TRAVEL SUPER in turn was shifted out away from the heels of AXIOM and bumped SELKIRK STAR, resulting in that horse being hampered and taken wider.

K C Leung was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground.

Rounding the Home Turn, AMBITIOUS CHAMPION was awkwardly placed close to the heels of INDUSTRIALIST WAY.

Over the concluding stages, SUPREME FRESH was awkwardly placed when racing tight between AMBITIOUS CHAMPION and INDUSTRIALIST WAY which shifted out marginally under pressure.

In the Straight, TRAVEL SUPER hung in and proved difficult to ride.

For the majority of the race, AXIOM travelled wide and without cover.

U Rispoli (BEST SHOW) was again reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SELKIRK STAR, W M Lai stated that, as instructed and consistent with its previous races, he shifted SELKIRK STAR across behind runners in the early stages from the wide barrier.

He said although SELKIRK STAR was required to race in a three wide position for the majority of the horse, the horse at all times had cover and travelled comfortably in the early and middle stages.

He said SELKIRK STAR continued to travel well until after the 500 Metres at which time the horse became unbalanced after being bumped by TRAVEL SUPER.

He said after this, he balanced SELKIRK STAR back up and immediately placed the horse under pressure, however, it did not respond to his riding.

A veterinary inspection of SELKIRK STAR immediately following the race revealed the horse to have a continuous epiglottic entrapment.

A veterinary inspection of FRANCE VALOUR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

A veterinary inspection of TRAVEL SUPER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LUCKY OMENS and AMBITIOUS CHAMPION were sent for sampling.
