Recap by phillip woo

Always Wonderful settled fifth and one off the rails, straightened four deep and finished well to overhaul leader Trendiful just 20m out for a maiden win at his 13th outing. Favourite Trendiful easily found the front from gate one, straightened a length on top and was tippy-toeing inside the final 100m. Crunched late in betting, Enjoy The Fun settled fore of midfield along the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and outfinished Shanghai Pioneer for a placing. Shanghai Pioneer travelled one off the fence behind midfield, made his move coming to the final bend and ran on steadily with three wider out. Trillion Treasure weakened inside the last 150m after sitting one off in second. He has had a lot of hard racing and may need to take a break. Elegant Frames was ridden cold from a wide gate, shifted into the open four from the right at the 300m and made some ground without menacing. Natural Eight did not make much of an impression four deep after saving ground behind midfield despite a gear change to blinkers. Ribot Legacy settled three deep with cover in midfield, swung the final bend five deep and failed to lift when popped the question.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (431)-FA HUI HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Metres

On jumping, ELEGANT FRAMES was crowded for room between DELIGHT FORTUNE and DARK CORE which shifted out.

ELEGANT FRAMES then got its head on the side and shifted out further, resulting in DELIGHT FORTUNE being inconvenienced.

After this, ELEGANT FRAMES and JOYFUL LUCK were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Shortly after the start, ALWAYS WONDERFUL shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of ENJOY THE FUN which became unbalanced.

Approaching the 900 Metres, NATURAL EIGHT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ENJOY THE FUN.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, DELIGHT FORTUNE shifted in and raced tight outside JOYFUL LUCK.

Near the 450 Metres, JOYFUL LUCK and DELIGHT FORTUNE again raced tight as JOYFUL LUCK shifted out into clear running.

At the 400 Metres, RIBOT LEGACY, which was travelling keenly, got its head up when being checked away from the heels of MIGHTY GAINS.

At the 200 Metres, NATURAL EIGHT was steadied and shifted to the inside of ENJOY THE FUN (Apprentice C Y Lui) which shifted out when not quite clear.

Apprentice Lui was advised to exercise more care.

Also at the 200 Metres, M Chadwick (TRILLION TREASURE) momentarily dropped his left rein.

Throughout the race, DARK CORE travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on JOYFUL LUCK at the request of Trainer C W Chang.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, JOYFUL LUCK will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned, D Whyte stated that RIBOT LEGACY travelled keenly throughout the race.

He said after being checked away from the heels of MIGHTY GAINS at the 400 Metres, RIBOT LEGACY became unbalanced and after this did not close off the race when placed under pressure and was disappointing.

A veterinary inspection of RIBOT LEGACY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ALWAYS WONDERFUL and TRENDIFUL were sent for sampling.
