Recap by phillip woo

Rank outsider Idyllic Wind eventually landed a one-out, one-back spot from a wide gate, rounded the final bend five deep and got up 50m out for a third straight win despite a return to Class Four. Plunged late in betting, Confucius Elite angled into the open five deep at the 250m following a one-off run worse than midfield and finished well to wear down Supreme Flight in the shadows of the post for second. Supreme Flight shared the lead outside Top Bonus from a tricky gate, advanced to the front 200m out and grudgingly gave way late. Hang's Decision finished nicely down the outside after travelling second from the rear to inject further value into the Quartet. Thumped late in betting, Good Luck Man plugged on evenly following a prominent run along the rail. Top Bonus was yielding ground 80m out after cornering narrowly on top. Formula Galore was making some headway late after travelling at the rear from a wide gate in a pleasing debut. Debutant Mission Possible got by a few without menacing two from the right after travelling fifth from the rear. My Legend didn't click after travelling third from the rear as the favourite following a sluggish break. Bo Duke was never involved after travelling fourth from the rear.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (200)-DUNBAR HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

Shortly after the start, GOOD LUCK MAN got its head on the side and shifted in despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in CONFUCIUS SPIRIT being hampered and in turn taken in onto MY LEGEND which was being ridden along in an attempt to obtain a forward position.

From a wide barrier, FORMULA GALORE was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the first turn after the 1100 Metres, CONSISTENT got its head on the side and shifted in towards the heels of GOOD LUCK MAN.

Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, MISSION POSSIBLE travelled keenly.

Near the 850 Metres, BO DUKE was steadied when crowded for room inside GOOD LUCK MAN which got its head on the side and shifted in away from IDYLLIC WIND which was racing tight outside GOOD LUCK MAN.

After this, IDYLLIC WIND was shifted out to relieve the tightening whilst GOOD LUCK MAN continued to race with its head on the side and lay in.

Approaching the 800 Metres, MISSION POSSIBLE raced in restricted room between SILVER DRAGON and CONSISTENT which shifted out away from the heels of IDYLLIC WIND.

Passing the 100 Metres, CONFUCIUS SPIRIT was awkwardly placed inside the heels of IDYLLIC WIND.

Over the concluding stages, FORMULA GALORE was unable to obtain clear running and consequently was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

In the Straight, HANG'S DECISION hung in and proved difficult to ride.

Throughout the race, SILVER DRAGON travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of BO DUKE, K C Leung stated that the horse's run was in contrast to that of its most recent start when successful.

He said on that occasion BO DUKE was able to travel strongly in a slowly run race and consequently was able to finish off the race well.

He said the tempo of tonight's race was quicker than that of its last start, however, BO DUKE did not travel well at any stage.

He said from barrier 1 he rode his mount aggressively to obtain a forward position and then he had to continue to ride the horse along as it was reluctant to maintain its position inside GOOD LUCK MAN making the turn near the 1000 Metres.

He said BO DUKE continued to travel off the bridle and approaching the 800 Metres became unbalanced when again reluctant to maintain its positon inside GOOD LUCK MAN when momentarily tightened inside that horse.

He said BO DUKE then did not travel well and was most disappointing in its failure to run on.

He added he had ridden BO DUKE in a number of pieces of work since its last start and the horse, in his opinion, had trained on well.

Mr P F Yiu, the trainer of BO DUKE, was unable to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of BO DUKE.

He said since its last start success BO DUKE had pleased him and based on this he expected the horse to race well tonight.

He said following BO DUKE's disappointing performance tonight, he would consider giving the horse a let-up.

A veterinary inspection of BO DUKE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of BO DUKE was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, BO DUKE 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 MY LEGEND, D Whyte stated that he had been asked to obtain a forward position on MY LEGEND from an inside barrier.

He said despite being aggressively ridden along in the early stages MY LEGEND failed to muster speed and making the first turn got its head on the side and was steadied away from the heels of CONFUCIUS SPIRIT.

He said throughout the race MY LEGEND never travelled comfortably and was reluctant to shift in towards the rail.

He added MY LEGEND briefly travelled on the bridle after the 800 Metres, however, again came under pressure after the 600 Metres.

He said MY LEGEND did not quicken at any stage and was most disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race.

Mr A S Cruz, the trainer of MY LEGEND, stated that he was disappointed with the horse's first up run this season.

He said he had asked Jockey Whyte to obtain a forward position if possible on MY LEGEND, however, it seemed that the horse does not possess sufficient early speed over the 1200 Metres.

He said therefore at this time it is his intention to consider stepping MY LEGEND up in distance in the hope that it may be able to obtain a prominent position without having to be hard ridden in the early stages of the race.

A veterinary inspection of MY LEGEND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MY LEGEND, IDYLLIC WIND and CONFUCIUS SPIRIT were sent for sampling.
