Recap by phillip woo

Super Strike settled second from the rear, took off 900m out to sit deep in second at the 600m, straightened four deep and wore down the gutsy Enjoy The Game in the final 20m to score a much-needed win for the stable. Enjoy The Game was posted deep without cover beyond midfield, rolled forward to share the lead with Ever Shiny 1,500m out, shot clear 750m out, cornered two lengths on top and grudgingly gave way in the run to the wire. Mobile King shared the lead early on until settling in a handy spot from the widest gate, rounded the final bend three deep and stayed on well to make it close at the finish. High Speed Metro settled third from the rear after a slow break, swung the final bend with one wider out and was making good progress to fill a Quartet spot. Yeung Sing was posted deep without cover near the speed until slotting in one-out, one-back, rounded the final bend with two wider out and stayed on all right to just miss a First-4 spot. Electronic Gospel made only a mild bid following a one-off run behind midfield. Zero Energy Act only held his ground after hugging the rail behind midfield. Favourite Sweet Bean was prominent along the rails, dropped back to midfield coming to the final bend and failed to lift when popped the question.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (718)-NG FONG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 2200Metres

GLORIOUS VICTORY was withdrawn prior to the race by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (fever).

Before being allowed to race again, GLORIOUS VICTORY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Prior to the race, SWEET BEAN was examined by the Veterinary Officer who reported that the horse had sustained a superficial laceration to the nose in the holding stalls.

An examination of SWEET BEAN found that horse to be suitable to race.

HIGH SPEED METRO and ENJOY THE GAME were slow to begin.

MOBILE KING stumbled at the start and then became unbalanced when bumped by CULTURAL CITY which began awkwardly and shifted out.

ZERO ENERGY ACT began awkwardly.

SWEET BEAN lost its right hind plate passing the 2100 Metres.

Approaching the 1700 Metres, YEUNG SING commenced to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed close to the heels of MOBILE KING.

YEUNG SING then shifted out to avoid the heels of MOBILE KING and was consequently allowed to stride into a more forward position after being left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, MOBILE KING was steadied away from the heels of YEUNG SING which got its head on the side and shifted in away from ENJOY THE GAME.

Near the 400 Metres, ZERO ENERGY ACT was held up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SWEET BEAN which was held up behind EVER SHINY which came under pressure In the early part of the Straight, ELECTRONIC GOSPEL lay in under pressure.

The performance of EVER SHINY, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

When questioned regarding the performance of SWEET BEAN, Z Purton stated that due to the good tempo of the race SWEET BEAN was never able to travel comfortably.

He said he holds some reservations as to whether SWEET BEAN is effective at the 2200 Metres and the tempo of the race did not enable him to give the horse a comfortable run to see out the distance.

He said he attempted to shift to the outside of EVER SHINY near the 500 Metres, however, SWEET BEAN was not travelling well enough to improve at this time and this allowed MOBILE KING to improve around SWEET BEAN.

He added whilst his mount was awkwardly placed close to the heels of EVER SHINY near the 400 Metres, the horse was already under pressure and in the Straight did not respond to his riding.

He said whilst SWEET BEAN was disappointing in tonight's race, he was of the opinion that there were some factors associated with the horse's failure to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of SWEET BEAN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of SWEET BEAN, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

SWEET BEAN, SUPER STRIKE and ENJOY THE GAME were sent for sampling.
