Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Follow The Wind settled third near the rails, advanced to the front 400m out and kept on nicely for the win. It was a good effort after tracking a good pace. Young Happy was ridden for luck at the rear, was widest out at the 400m and closed off nicely to get the bob on Fortune Territory for second. Fortune Territory did eventually find some cover three deep behind midfield, went to second five deep at the 200m and grudgingly gave way late in an improved performance with a drop in grade. He'll be winning soon. Southchina Command travelled behind midfield and one off the rails, angled into the clear five deep at the 300m and ran on reasonably well to fill a Quartet spot in an improved run following the removal of blinkers. Jun Ju did seem to get caught up behind runners upon straightening after travelling third from the rear and made some ground with clear running over the final 150m. Colourful Profit travelling handy in the run and was only one-paced

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (391)-BILLET EXPRESS HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1600Metres

On entering the track, Y T Cheng was momentarily dislodged from BAMBOO DANCE.

COOL PAL shifted out at the start and bumped SOUTHCHINA COMMAND.

From wide barriers, ELECTRONIC GOSPEL and JUN JU were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 600 Metres, KING OF SMARTS was steadied when disappointed for running between COSMO ONE which was steadied in the lead and FOLLOW THE WIND which improved quickly around KING OF SMARTS.

After this, COLOURFUL PROFIT raced in restricted room inside KING OF SMARTS which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of CHANS DELIGHT.

Approaching the 500 Metres, ALL MY BENEFIT was awkwardly placed outside the heels of KING OF SMARTS when racing in restricted room inside SOUTHCHINA COMMAND.

At the entrance to the Straight, KING OF SMARTS was steadied when crowded for room between COLOURFUL PROFIT and CHANS DELIGHT which improved to be racing inside COOL PAL.

JUN JU was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and passing the 300 Metres was steadied and shifted to the outside of THE ONLY KID after being disappointed for running between that horse and SOUTHCHINA COMMAND which shifted out.

After this, JUN JU raced tight and made contact with ELECTRONIC GOSPEL when attempting to improve into tight running between that horse and THE ONLY KID.

Near the 150 Metres, CHANS DELIGHT got its head on the side and shifted in under pressure.

When questioned regarding his riding of COSMO ONE particularly in the middle stages, K Teetan stated that he had been asked to take up a forward position.

He said it was explained to him that it was acceptable to race outside the lead, however, if circumstances allowed, he should obtain the lead.

He said in accordance with his instructions, he rode COSMO ONE along in the early stages, however, he had to ride it along more than he had hoped as FOLLOW THE WIND, which had drawn inside COSMO ONE, was also ridden along aggressively in the early stages to take up a forward position.

He said it was not until after the 1200 Metres that COSMO ONE was able to establish a sufficient enough break over FOLLOW THE WIND to cross that horse and he commenced to shift across to race outside the leader KING OF SMARTS near the 1100 Metres.

He said he continued to allow COSMO ONE to improve its position into the outright lead and just prior to the 900 Metres he had a look to his inside and observed he had established more of a margin over KING OF SMARTS than he expected, however, at this time he immediately commenced to steady the tempo on COSMO ONE as he was aware that the horse was running faster than he had hoped.

He said after the 800 Metres and particularly towards the 600 Metres he was able to steady the tempo on COSMO ONE, however, the horse had had to do more work in the early stages than he expected.

He further stated that when stepping up in distance to 1600 Metres of today's race, COSMO ONE proved somewhat difficult to settle, particularly after having to be ridden along in the early stages.

K Teetan was severely reprimanded for a lack of judgement particularly after the 1200 Metres.

He was advised that, in the opinion of the Stewards, he should have made more of an effort to steady his mount given that the race was being run at a very quick tempo.

He was further advised to ensure that he rides his mounts in such a manner so that they are able to finish off their races as best as they are able.

A veterinary inspection of COOL PAL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

COLOURFUL PROFIT, FOLLOW THE WIND and YOUNG HAPPY were sent for sampling.
