Recap by phillip woo

Fortune Bravo was not rushed early on while travelling one off in fifth, circled the field at the 1,000m to hit the front 600m out, cornered two lengths on top and kept on gamely off a light weight for a fourth career win over this trip. Bright Concept went forward from a wide gate to punch the breeze on the leader's back, straightened three deep and kept on a clear second. Colourful Profit was posted without cover in midfield, improved his position 600m out and got up five deep at the 150m for a placing. Very Well was taken back from a wide gate to settle three deep at the rear, swung the final bend with two wider out, had to steady at the 250m and made some ground thereafter to just get up for a Quartet spot. Yeung Sing was ridden for luck at the back of the field and was got going late down the far outside. Natural Eight settled behind midfield and one off the rails, shifted ground at the 300m and plugged on after balancing up five deep. Favourite New Pet enjoyed a lovely run on the back of the speed along the fence, got shuffled back to behind midfield by the tiring Intellectual Glide at the 600m and did not lift when asked for an effort three deep upon straightening. Intellectual Glide gave way when headed 600m out after setting some honest early fractions.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (469)-CAUSEWAY BAY HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

Shortly after the start, VERY WELL was crowded for room between KHARU and BRIGHT CONCEPT which shifted in.

After this, VERY WELL was ridden along, however, failed to muster speed and approaching the winning post on the first occasion was shifted across behind runners.

Also shortly after the start, NATURAL EIGHT shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of KING OF EARTH which became unbalanced.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, KHARU was slow to muster speed.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, KING ON EARTH got its head on the side and shifted in despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in YEUNG SING being checked and losing ground.

Passing the 1400 Metres, TAI PO FORTUNE, which was being steadied, was crowded for room between BRIGHT CONCEPT and INTELLECTUAL GLIDE which shifted out.

For some distance after the 1100 Metres, KING ON EARTH commenced to prove very difficult to settle and when being checked away from the heels of NATURAL EIGHT shifted in and bumped YEUNG SING which became unbalanced.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, INTELLECTUAL GLIDE became unbalanced of its own accord.

After this, INTELLECTUAL GLIDE commenced to lose ground, resulting in NEW PET being hampered and losing ground.

MY SURPLUS and YEUNG SING, which were following NEW PET, were checked in consequence.

After this, INTELLECTUAL GLIDE continued to give ground, resulting in NEW PET being taken back through the field.

Near the 250 Metres, VERY WELL was briefly crowded for room between KHARU and NATURAL EIGHT which shifted out.

Over the concluding stages, TAI PO FORTUNE raced tight inside NATURAL EIGHT.

In the Straight, COLOURFUL PROFIT raced with its head on the side and KING ON EARTH hung in and proved difficult to ride.

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

A veterinary inspection of INTELLECTUAL GLIDE and NEW PET immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

NEW PET, FORTUNE BRAVO and BRIGHT CONCEPT were sent for sampling.
