Recap by phillip woo

Post-time favourite High Speed Metro settled behind midfield along the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and quickened nicely to win going away 130m out for a second win from four starts this term. He'll remain in the grade and can win another. Choice Exchequer assumed the lead 300m out after stalking the leader Fresh And Fresh and kept on gamely to finish a clear second, Mighty Wongchoy ran on well following a rail's run in midfield for a placing. Glamour Ryder travelled fifth from the rear, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished well to snatch a Quartet spot from Glorious Victory, who only plodded five deep over the last 150m following a one-off run with cover fore of midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (114)-SHA TSUI HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

MIGHTY WONGCHOY was slow to begin.

FRESH AND FRESH began awkwardly and shifted out, resulting in WINSOME SMILE being checked away from the heels of FRESH AND FRESH.

After this, from the outside barrier, WINSOME SMILE was ridden along for some distance to obtain a forward position.

FRESH AND FRESH lost its left front plate in the early stages.

Near the 900 Metres, SUCCESSFUL LEADER was left racing wide and without cover.

After the 500 Metres, VIVA GUY and SUCCESSFUL LEADER raced tight.

Approaching the 350 Metres, WINSOME SMILE, which was commencing to give ground, was steadied away from the heels of FUNNY FORTUNE when taken in by MIGHTY WONGCHOY which shifted ground when awkwardly placed close to the heels of CHOICE EXCHEQUER.

When questioned, Apprentice H N Wong stated that it had been anticipated that JUST PLEASANT would be able to be ridden in a more forward position, however, due to VIVA GUY being aggressively ridden to his inside, he elected in the early stages to allow that horse to improve its position rather than having to ride JUST PLEASANT along in an attempt to cross VIVA GUY.

He said because of this JUST PLEASANT raced further back in the field than had been intended.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on GLORIOUS VICTORY at the request of Trainer C S Shum.

The Veterinary Surgeon reported that this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

A veterinary inspection of SUCCESSFUL LEADER and SOUTHCHINA COMMAND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HIGH SPEED METRO and CHOICE EXCHEQUER were sent for sampling.
