Recap by phillip woo

Mr Vanilla bided his time fourth from the rear near the rails, peeled out coming to the final bend and finished willingly with two wider out to take control 150m out for a maiden win at his 13th start following a riding change to Joao Moreira. Favourite Goldweaver was handy along the rails, dashed to the front three deep at the 200m and found one too good in the end. Zachary settled fourth from the rear, took off 900m out to get to fifth at the 700m, had to steady at the 500m, swung the final bend with two wider out and responded well to get up for a placing. Viva Guy came widest out after travelling second from the rear and ran on nicely to grab a Quartet spot. Glamorous Ryder made his run at the tail of the field and did have to steady close to home when making progress near the inside. Everspring travelled midfield along the rails, bumped twice while pulling out with three wider out at the 250m and ran on steadily thereafter. Good Thinker was one-paced following a midfield run. Mobile King and Archer's Bow struggled a long ways out after vying for the lead through strong fractions.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (347)-TUNG LUNG CHAU HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

MOBILE KING began awkwardly and shortly after the start was bumped by ZACHARY which shifted out, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

After this, ZACHARY was ridden along, however, failed to muster speed.

From the outside barrier, GLAMOROUS RYDER was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1200 Metres, GOLDWEAVER got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of MOBILE KING.

Near the 1100 Metres, REAL GENERAL was checked away from the heels of CASA JUNIOR.

GOOD THINKER, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

Also near the 1100 Metres, EVERSPRING was steadied away from the heels of GOLDWEAVER.

For some distance after the 1100 Metres, GOLDWEAVER got its head up when it remained awkwardly placed close to the heels of MOBILE KING.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, CASA JUNIOR raced tight between MOBILE KING and ARCHER'S BOW which became unbalanced and shifted in slightly.

ZACHARY, which was following ARCHER'S BOW, was hampered in consequence.

At the 500 Metres, MOBILE KING was momentarily crowded for room inside CASA JUNIOR which got its head on the side and lay in.

For some distance after the 500 Metres, GOLDWEAVER was checked away from the heels of MOBILE KING which was giving ground.

EVERSPRING, which was following GOLDWEAVER, was checked near the 400 Metres and GOLDEN OSMANTHUS, which was following EVERSPRING, was also checked in consequence at this time.

Rounding the Home Turn, GOLDWEAVER then raced tight between MOBILE KING which was continuing to give ground and GOOD THINKER.

Passing the 300 Metres, EVERSPRING was crowded for room when attempting to improve into tight running between ARCHER'S BOW and ZACHARY, both of which shifted ground.

In this incident, EVERSPRING bumped heavily with the hindquarters of ZACHARY, causing both horses to become badly unbalanced.

Over the concluding stages, GLAMOROUS RYDER, which shifted out, was awkwardly placed inside the heels of ZACHARY which shifted in under pressure.

Because of this, GLAMOROUS RYDER was not able to be ridden out right to the end of the race.

For the majority of the race, ARCHER'S BOW travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

When questioned, Apprentice K C Ng stated that he had been asked to ride GOLDEN OSMANTHUS more conservatively from barrier 10 as it was anticipated that tonight's race would be run at a strong tempo as there were a number of horses engaged that had previously taken up forward positions in their races.

Z Purton (MOBILE KING) advised that after being instructed to obtain a forward position, he had to make considerable use of the horse in the early stages to clear runners to his inside.

He said he attempted to steady the tempo of the race in the middle stages having in mind the work that MOBILE KING had had to do in the early part of the race, however, it was taken on in the lead after the 800 Metres when both CASA JUNIOR and ARCHER'S BOW improved to his outside.

He added after MOBILE KING was momentarily crowded for room at the 500 Metres, the horse then came off the bridle and weakened out of the race.

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

The performance of MOBILE KING, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

A veterinary inspection of ARCHER'S BOW immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of ARCHER'S BOW, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, ARCHER'S BOW will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

MR VANILLA and GOLDWEAVER were sent for sampling.
