Recap by phillip woo

Amber Dragon settled nicely one off the fence in fourth from a wide gate, charged to the front at the 250m and kept on gamely for the win. Happy Surveys bided his time four back along the fence, pushed out six deep soon after straightening and finished nicely to grab second 60m out. Super Talent travelled midfield along the rails, worked to second four deep at the 150m and just held off Gonna Run for a placing. Gonna Run travelled second from the rear and came on nicely widest out after pulling off heels for a clear run widest out at the 230m. Travel Ambassador got shuffled back to last coming to the final bend, then was held up until switching into the open 250m out and ran on well in a pleasing debut. He'll want a further trip in time. Triumphant Light made only a mild bid after travelling deep on the course third from the rear. Kynam had no excuses following a dream run. Young Watchman was hard ridden to lead at all costs from gate 11 and was struggling 150m out. Young Dreamer faded after travelling worse than midfield following an awkward break.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (082)-TAILORBIRD HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Metres

As the start was effected, YOUNG DREAMER lifted its front feet off the ground and began only fairly.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, LAUGH OUT LOUD failed to muster speed.

Making the first turn near the 900 Metres, LAUGH OUT LOUD was taken out by TRIUMPHANT LIGHT which, when proving difficult to settle, shifted out away from the heels of TRAVEL AMBASSADOR.

After this, TRIUMPHANT LIGHT was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 500 Metres, TRAVEL AMBASSADOR became unbalanced when attempting to improve into tight running between YOUNG DREAMER and HAPPY SURVEYS which shifted out.

Rounding the Home Turn, TRAVEL AMBASSADOR was awkwardly placed close to the heels of YOUNG DREAMER when unable to improve from behind that horse.

TRAVEL AMBASSADOR was then held up for clear running after the 300 Metres.

After the 300 Metres, GONNA RUN was shifted to the outside of LAUGH OUT LOUD after being disappointed for running between that horse and TRIUMPHANT LIGHT.

GONNA RUN was then awkwardly placed close to the heels of LAUGH OUT LOUD for a short distance.

When questioned regarding his riding out of GONNA RUN over the concluding stages, C Y Ho stated that after obtaining clear running GONNA RUN was finishing off the race strongly.

He said he rode the horse out including with the whip and last used the whip on the horse at about the 50 Metres.

He said as GONNA RUN was finishing at its top, he did not believe it was necessary to continue riding the horse with the whip and for this reason he continued to urge it forward vigorously hands and heels in the run to the line.

C Y Ho was advised that where circumstances permit he has an obligation to ride his mounts out to the best of his ability, particularly where finishes in the placings are concerned.

He was further advised that whilst his riding of GONNA RUN over the final 50 Metres did not constitute a breach of the Rules, nonetheless he must ride his mounts out in such a manner so as to leave no room for query.

When questioned, K C Leung stated that he had been asked to lead on YOUNG WATCHMAN from the outside barrier as there was not much anticipated speed in the race.

He said it was therefore hoped that the horse would be able to work its way forward and dictate the tempo of the race.

He said after having to be aggressively ridden in the early stages to cross runners to his inside, YOUNG WATCHMAN did not settle and got its head up on a number of occasions as he attempted to steady the tempo of the race.

Mr C S Shum, the trainer of YOUNG WATCHMAN, said that KYNAM and BUSINESS AS USUAL were the only horses that he anticipated would take up forward positions in the race and therefore he felt that there was an opportunity for YOUNG WATCHMAN to lead.

He said prior to being imported into Australia, YOUNG WATCHMAN had raced successfully from forward positions and he therefore felt that the opportunity presented itself today for the horse to be ridden in a similar manner.

A veterinary inspection of YOUNG WATCHMAN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of KYNAM immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

SUPER TALENT, AMBER DRAGON and HAPPY SURVEYS were sent for sampling.
