Recap by phillip woo

Southchina Command came on widest out after travelling second from the rear to get up in the final few strides for a maiden win at his 24th start. Plunged late to start favourite Yeung Sing settled deep with cover in midfield after a sluggish break, wheeled in with one wider out and finished willingly to make it a thriller on the wire. Funny Fortune advanced to the front 200m out following a box-seat run and was swamped in the final few metres in an improved run with a return to blinkers. Bornfree stayed on reasonably well to fill the Quartet spot following a handy run along the fence. Better Announce travelled one off the fence travelling fore of midfield, cornered with two wider out and made some ground without menacing. Master Viking went too quickly on the lead and compounded 200m out. Commandant was badly held up until the last 100m following a rail's run behind midfield. Early favourite Mr Vanilla was already plodding when tight for room 100m out after making his run fourth from the rear. Rugby Ambassador was yielding ground 150m out after stalking the leader.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (141)-TIU KENG LENG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

YEUNG SING was slow to begin.

MR VANILLA was crowded for room on jumping between SOUTHCHINA COMMAND and COMMANDANT which shifted out.

In this incident, SOUTHCHINA COMMAND became unbalanced after being bumped by MR VANILLA.

BETTER ANNOUNCE lost its left front plate near the 1500 Metres.

Also near the 1500 Metres, TRIPLE KING was momentarily hampered when crowded for room between YEUNG SING and BETTER ANNOUNCE which was taken in by COMMANDANT (N Rawiller).

N Rawiller was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in future.

After passing the winning post on the first occasion, FUNNY FORTUNE proved difficult to settle and was steadied away from the heels of MASTER VIKING.

Near the 450 Metres, BORNFREE and RED ADVENTURE raced tight as BORNFREE shifted out to improve.

Rounding the Home Turn, FUNNY FORTUNE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MASTER VIKING.

In the early part of the Straight, FUNNY FORTUNE raced with its head on the side and lay in under pressure.

MR VANILLA had some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part the Straight.

Near the 100 Metres, MR VANILLA was steadied when disappointed for running between RED ADVENTURE which shifted in and RUGBY AMBASSADOR which was awkwardly placed outside the heels of BORNFREE.

Passing the 100 Metres, COMMANDANT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MASTER VIKING.

The performance of PERFECT TRIUMPH, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of MR VANILLA, J Moreira stated that the horse never travelled on the bridle during the race.

He said MR VANILLA was "timid" around other runners and because of this he was not able to take advantage of tight runs in the Straight.

He said nonetheless MR VANILLA was travelling only fairly and it was doubtful as to whether the horse was going well enough to take advantage of these runs when they became available.

A veterinary inspection of MR VANILLA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of RUGBY AMBASSADOR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SOUTHCHINA COMMAND and YEUNG SING were sent for sampling.
