Recap by phillip woo

Firming in betting debutant. Dancing Flames showed good gate speed to cross from a low berth to lead one off the stands side at the 800m and repelled a challenge by the more experienced Diego Kosta over the final 300m to begin his career on a bright note. Diego Costa travelled three off the stands side in second, loomed a fleeting chance at the 200m and came up flat in the last 100m. Ace King settled a distant fifth near the center of the course and closed off well to place without menacing the top pair. My Folks settled fourth from the rear and made some progress two from the left to grab a minor pay cheque in a pleasing debut. Jimson The Famous travelled underneath Ace King on the far left and kept on better in a shade improved run at his eighth start. Favourite Circuit King gave way 150m out after sharing the early lead on the stands side in a disappointing performance. Debutant Adventurer was yielding ground 200m out after pressing the early pace.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (111)-CHUEN LUNG HANDICAP - Class 4 (Restricted) - 1000Metres

N Rawiller (MY FOLKS) was fined the sum of $2,000 for presenting himself to be weighed out with the incorrect saddle cloth number.

CIRCUIT KING began awkwardly and shifted in, resulting in ADVENTURER being taken in and causing ALWAYS WONGCHOY, which was slow to begin, and EMPEROR VICTORY to be badly crowded for room.

In this incident, TREASURE AND GOLD became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by EMPEROR VICTORY.

In the early stages, GARLIC YEAH raced with its head on the side and hung in.

Approaching the 600 Metres, DIEGO KOSTA was awkwardly placed close to the heels of DANCING FLAMES (C Schofield) which shifted out when not properly clear.

C Schofield was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Passing the 600 Metres, ALWAYS WONGCHOY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GARLIC YEAH.

ALWAYS WONGCHOY was then badly held up for clear running behind GARLIC YEAH which was continuing to hang in.

When questioned, C Y Ho stated that after riding his mount along in the early stages, SOCKET KING was inclined to travel keenly.

He said near the 700 Metres SOCKET KING shifted away from the heels of TREASURE AND GOLD and bumped MY FOLKS, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

He said after this SOCKET KING continued to travel keenly and was racing close to the heels of TREASURE AND GOLD.

He said because of the manner in which SOCKET KING was racing, it was not available for him to steady the horse sufficiently to shift in across behind MY FOLKS and for this reason SOCKET KING was unable to obtain clear running until near the 100 Metres.

After the race, N Callan (CIRCUIT KING) stated that he had to ride his mount along in the early stages to take up a forward position as instructed.

He said CIRCUIT KING was not able to travel on the bridle at any stage and, in his opinion, would be better suited by a longer distance than that of today's race.

A veterinary inspection of CIRCUIT KING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

Also after the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that EMPEROR VICTORY had sustained a minor laceration to the right hind leg.

A veterinary inspection of SOCKET KING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

CIRCUIT KING, DANCING FLAMES and DIEGO KOSTA were sent for sampling.
