Recap by phillip woo

Go Sandy Go settled five back along the fence, angled into the open six deep at the 300m and quickened nicely to gobble them up 30m out for a win following a gear change. So Caffe settled three back and one off the rails with cover, worked to the front four deep at the 150m and was swamped late. Good Method travelled a position closer than Go Sandy Go along the rails, rounded the final bend and closed off well to add some value to the tierce. Glorious Ryder got going nicely with one wider out to add some spice to the Quartet. Electronic Phoenix was ridden cold at the rear from a wide gate and was making good ground furthest out in the drive to the wire. Rock The Tree stayed on all right despite being held up early.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (772)-BEING FAMOUS HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Metres

On arrival at the Start, Z Purton expressed concern regarding the action of UNICORN.

UNICORN was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said, after the necessary consultations, that the horse was suitable to race.

TOWERING STORM began awkwardly and bumped GLORIOUS RYDER which shifted in.

A short distance later, TOWERING STORM and UNICORN were crowded for room between SUPERKING DRAGON and GLORIOUS RYDER which again shifted in.

ISLAND FLYER began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, ELECTRONIC PHOENIX was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 300 Metres, UNICORN was shifted out away from the heels of GOOD METHOD.

Passing the 100 Metres, SO CAFFE (M Chadwick) shifted out under pressure and raced tight inside GO SANDY GO.

When SO CAFFE was shifting out, M Chadwick dropped his right rein.

Throughout the race, UNICORN travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of HIGH WARRIOR, G Mosse stated that as it had been explained to him that HIGH WARRIOR takes some time to quicken when placed under pressure, he was asked to have it race forward of midfield to allow it the opportunity to work into the race rather than having to show a turn of foot.

He said HIGH WARRIOR travelled well and he expected the horse to finish off the race strongly, however, when placed under pressure HIGH WARRIOR was disappointing in its failure to respond to his riding.

He said he was not able to offer any reason for the horse's disappointing performance.

A veterinary inspection of HIGH WARRIOR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The Stewards opened an inquiry into H W Lai's riding of GOOD METHOD particularly in the Home Straight.

After taking evidence from H W Lai, Mr C S Shum, the trainer of that horse, the Stewards adjourned the matter until a date to be fixed.

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

UNICORN, GO SANDY GO and SO CAFFE were sent for sampling.
