Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Forgive And Forget slotted in one off the fence in midfield from a wide gate, shifted off the rails three deep at the 150m and responded instantly to take control 50m out for the win with a key return to Class Four. Punted late, Addole found a one-out, one-back spot, straightened four deep and finished well to make it close. Best Hope went forward from a wide gate to settle one off in second, briefly hit the front three deep at the 100m and found the top two too good in the end. King Of Reason succumbed 100m out after a decent gallop on the lead from a wide gate. Strathtay settled behind midfield and near three deep, swung the final bend with three wider out and made some ground without menacing. Heartily Wins never ran on following a box-seat run. Diamond Friends made only a mild bid after travelling behind midfield and one off the fence. Dashing Fortune never got in with cover in midfield, straightened with one wider out and only plodded over the final 200m. Skip Trial never was a factor after missing the kick. Loyal Craftsman was withdrawn at the gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (608)-HO CHUNG RIVER HANDICAP - Class 4 (Special Conditions) - 1650Metres

On arrival at the Start, K Teetan expressed concern regarding the action of LOYAL CRAFTSMAN.

LOYAL CRAFTSMAN was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was lame in the left hind leg and accordingly was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of LOYAL CRAFTSMAN.

Before being allowed to race again, LOYAL CRAFTSMAN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SKIP COURT was slow to begin.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, MEDIC MASTER and DIAMOND FRIENDS raced tight inside DASHING FORTUNE which got its head on the side and lay in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FORGIVE AND FORGET.

After the 400 Metres, HEARTILY WINS became unbalanced of its own accord and brushed the running rail.

The performance of DOUBLE POINT, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

Apprentice K C Ng (KING OF REASON), 4th placegetter, was reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

When questioned, G Mosse stated that he had been instructed to be as handy as possible on DASHING FORTUNE.

He said accordingly he gave the horse a good warm up behind the barriers, however, despite being vigorously ridden along in the early stages, DASHING FORTUNE did not show any early speed and was only able to take up a position in about midfield.

He said passing the winning post on the first occasion he was left racing in a three wide position when DIAMOND FRIENDS and MEDIC MASTER maintained their positions to the inside of DASHING FORTUNE.

He added he did give consideration to allowing his mount to stride forward mid-race, however, he did not believe DASHING FORTUNE was travelling well enough to make a mid-race move.

He said DASHING FORTUNE came under pressure after the 600 Metres and then gave ground noticeably in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of DASHING FORTUNE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FORGIVE AND FORGET and ADDOLE were sent for sampling.
