Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Heroic Guru was restrained to sit second from the rear along the fence from a wide gate, improved to midfield rounding the final bend, angled into the open with three wider out at the 400m, poked his head in front from Eastern Express at the 150m and just held on for the win. Eastern Express settled fourth along the fence, worked to the lead 250m out and just found one too good on the day. He'll be returning to the winner's circle in no time. Specked late, Tonyboy drifted back to have one behind him at the 1,100m, swung the final bend with four wider out and just out-finished Showing Character for a placing. Showing Character ran on well five deep after travelling at the tail of the field in a much-improved performance with a rise in trip. Avellino ran on steadily near three deep after a rail's run worse than midfield to pick up a minor pay slip in a better second-up effort with a rise in trip and switch to Sha Tin. Well-punted late, Unbeatable Guts ran on without menacing with one wider out after travelling one off the fence behind midfield following a sluggish break.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (269)-TAI PING SHAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Metres

UNBEATABLE GUTS began only fairly and shortly after the start was crowded for room between FANTASTICO and DASHING SUPER, both of which shifted ground.

From the outside barrier, SHOWING CHARACTER was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 1250 Metres, AVELLINO was awkwardly placed outside the heels of EASTERN EXPRESS when racing tight inside YOURTHEWONFORME which in turn was racing tight inside FANTASTICO which got its head on the side and shifted in away from DASHING SUPER.

After this, FANTASTICO proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

Then passing the 1000 Metres, FANTASTICO, which was continuing to prove difficult to settle, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT.

Making the turn near the 900 Metres, FANTASTICO was steadied when crowded for room between WAH MAY BABY and YOURTHEWONFORME which shifted out after being bumped by EASTERN EXPRESS.

Approaching the 600 Metres, FANTASTICO was awkwardly placed close to the heels of WAH MAY BABY.

Approaching the 500 Metres, AVELLINO, which was laying out, improved its position to be racing close to the heels of EASTERN EXPRESS.

Throughout the race, WAH MAY BABY travelled wide and without cover.

The performances of DASHING SUPER and GLOBE TROTTER, which finished tailed out, were considered unacceptable.

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

After the race, D Whyte reported that shortly after the start CHEVALIER STAR became badly unbalanced after striking itself.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that CHEVALIER STAR had sustained an overreach injury to the left front medial heel.

A veterinary inspection of WAH MAY BABY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HEROIC GURU and EASTERN EXPRESS were sent for sampling.
