Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Fortune Territory travelled behind midfield and one off the rails, angled into the open four deep upon straightening, switched off heels twice while making ground and got up 100m out for the win. Best Jade Triumph was ridden cold from a wide gate, swung the final bend deep on the course and finished willingly to run down Everyone's Choice 40m out for second. Plunged late in bettering, Everyone's Choice went forward from the widest draw to sit outside the leader Positive Energy, assumed the front four deep at the 300m and tended to lay out under pressure. Optimization Star settled three deep with cover behind midfield, rounded the final bend five deep and ran on without threatening the placegetters. Solar Boy only held his ground following a box-seat run. Forest Colours bided his time third from the rear and one off the rails, gave up trying to get to the outside three from the right at the 300m, then had to check off heels five deep at the 200m before making some ground.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (459)-VITAL KING HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Metres

WINNING BOY was checked when crowded for room shortly after the start between CHANS DELIGHT and HAPPILY TIME which, after bounding in the air as the start was effected and beginning awkwardly, then shifted out.

WINNING BOY was consequently shifted across behind runners.

From a wide barrier, BEST JADE TRIUMPH was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 1200 Metres, HAPPILY TIME was awkwardly placed close to the heels of EVERYONE'S CHOICE (N Callan) which shifted in when not quite clear.

N Callan was advised to exercise more care.

IDYLLIC WIND, which was following HAPPILY TIME, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse for some distance approaching the 1100 Metres.

After this, HAPPILY TIME proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed behind EVERYONE'S CHOICE.

SECRET IDENTITY travelled wide and without cover until after the 800 Metres at which time the horse was ridden forward to cross to race outside the lead.

After the 800 Metres, CHANS DELIGHT was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 350 Metres, OPTIMIZATION STAR was shifted to the inside of HAPPILY TIME which was commencing to give ground.

Approaching the 300 Metres, WINNING EXPRESSO raced tight between BEST JADE TRIUMPH which shifted in and FOREST COLOURS which was endeavouring to improve to the outside of CHANS DELIGHT which shifted out under pressure.

Then near the 300 Metres, FOREST COLOURS was directed to the inside of CHANS DELIGHT when disappointed for running between that horse and WINNING EXPRESSO.

Approaching the 200 Metres, WINNING BOY was steadied when crowded for room between OPTIMIZATION STAR and SECRET IDENTITY which shifted out marginally when giving ground.

Passing the 200 Metres, FOREST COLOURS was steadied when disappointed for running between IDYLLIC WIND and HAPPILY TIME which shifted out when continuing to give ground.

After the race, H W Lai expressed concern regarding the action of IDYLLIC WIND during the race.

IDYLLIC WIND was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said there were no significant findings.

Before being allowed to race again, IDYLLIC WIND will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPILY TIME immediately following the race revealed the horse to have sustained superficial wounds on the left hind leg and to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.

FORTUNE TERRITORY and BEST JADE TRIUMPH were sent for sampling.
