Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite Southchina Command eased back to settle fore of midfield and one off the fence after jumping sharply, rounded the final bend four deep and responded well to get up 80m out for a seconds straight win. Bornfree settled fourth from the rear, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished willingly to grab second 20m out. Hong Kong Fat ran on well four from the right after travelling deep with cover third from the rear to make it close for second in a fine effort with blinkers going on. Master Viking eased back to eventually settle one-out, one-back after showing early speed, moved to second 500m out and was swamped late for a placing in a better run with the blinkers off. Funny Fortune rolled forward from a wide gate to find the front 600m out, straightened just over a length on top and was on his tippy toes 100m out. Jack's Gem produced only a grinding effort in the run to the wire after pulling out three deep following a rail's run worse than midfield. He's a better Sha Tin performer. Holy Star made some ground without threatening from near near the back. Mighty Wongchoy was gone 200m out after a no-cover run in midfield. Early favourite Fresh And Fresh turned the final bend awkwardly and was eased down over the final 250m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (163)-KAM SHAN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

FUNNY FORTUNE began awkwardly.


A short distance later, MIGHTY WONGCHOY was bumped by HONG KONG FAT which shifted in after being bumped by JOY TOGETHER which in turn was hampered by FRESH AND FRESH.

Approaching the 1200 Metres, MASTER VIKING was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FRESH AND FRESH.

Near the 1150 Metres, MASTER VIKING raced keenly when being steadied to obtain cover behind FUNNY FORTUNE.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, MIGHTY WONGCHOY was left racing wide and without cover.

At the 350 Metres, FRESH AND FRESH was severely checked away from the heels of JOY TOGETHER which, when under pressure, was crowded for room inside SOUTHCHINA COMMAND which in turn was racing tight inside MIGHTY WONGCHOY which got its head on the side and shifted in marginally towards the heels of MASTER VIKING.

Whilst this incident was one of some significance, the Stewards were satisfied that there were a number of circumstances which contributed to this incident, none of which involved rider error.

Accordingly, no further action was taken.

When FRESH AND FRESH was severely checked, HOLY STAR shifted out abruptly away from the heels of that horse, resulting in STRIKE EAGLE being taken out onto GOLDEN OSMANTHUS which became unbalanced after being bumped by STRIKE EAGLE.

Over the latter stages of the race, HONG KONG FAT lay in under pressure.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of N Rawiller (JACK'S GEM), 6th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horse's finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

A veterinary inspection of FRESH AND FRESH and HOLY STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SOUTHCHINA COMMAND and BORNFREE were sent for sampling.
