Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Bamboo Dance settled behind midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend five from the right and finished willingly to take control 150m out for a win at his seventh outing. Street Cat was held up behind midfield until working into the open at the 180m and quickened nicely thereafter to easily claim second prize with a return to Class Five. Zachary landed a nice spot in midfield with cover from a wide gate, worked to second at the 100m and had to settle a position further back in the end. Joy Together settled one off in fourth, worked to the lead three deep at the 250m and grudgingly gave way late. Telecom Prince ran on with purpose to just run down Global Fame for a pay slip. Global Fame had every chance four deep upon straightening following a one-off run worse than midfield and was only one-paced over the last 150m. Oriental Fantasia went clear to lead uncontested at the 1,400m, cornered a length on top and was yielding ground 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (653)-CHEERS HONG KONG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1600Metres

At declaration time, A Suborics was declared as the rider of both ZACHARY and YOUNG HAPPY.

It was established that A Suborics had a firm commitment to ride ZACHARY.

As such, the Stewards permitted H W Lai to be substituted as the rider of YOUNG HAPPY.

For this declaration error, Trainer D E Ferraris was fined $2,000.

CROATIA was withdrawn on 28.5.15 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter HONG KONG FAT.

As previously advised, CROATIA will be subjected to an official veterinary examination before being allowed to race again.

YOUNG HAPPY, which was leaning on the inside of its stall as the start was effected, was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, GOOD THINKER shifted in and bumped HAPPY KAISER.

From the outside barrier, SOUTHCHINA COMMAND was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 1400 Metres, HONG KONG FAT was awkwardly placed outside the heels of YOUNG HAPPY.

GOLDEN OSMANTHUS lost its left hind plate at the 1100 Metres.

STREET CAT had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

In the Straight, TELECOM PRINCE hung in under pressure.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of HAPPY KAISER, M L Yeung stated that he had ridden the horse in work in the lead up to today's race and that work was good.

He said after obtaining a trailing position, HAPPY KAISER travelled only fairly and after being placed under pressure in the Straight was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to respond to his riding.

He said the only possible explanation he could offer for HAPPY KAISER's disappointing run was the fact that the horse did not appear to be completely comfortable racing inside other horses.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPY KAISER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that GOLDEN OSMANTHUS had bled from both nostrils.

A veterinary inspection of GOOD THINKER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BAMBOO DANCE and STREET CAT were sent for sampling.
