Recap by phillip woo

Kim Glory was prominently ridden on the stands side, advanced to the front 250m out and just staved off the late surge of Lean Journey to score with a key return to Class Five. Lean Journey closed off well after gaining a clear run near the grandstand side at the 250m to make it close on the wire with a drop in class. Optimism ran on nicely near the center of the course following a midfield run to grab a placing. He'll be winning shortly after figuring in the placings in both sprints this term. Great Speed finished well along the grandstand after travelling third from the rear to secure a Quartet spot. Favourite Whistle Blower was handy in the run four from the stands side, briefly moved to second at the 100m and punctured 50m later despite a return to Class Five. Seasons King was making noticeable ground late in the center of the course after travelling second from the rear. Double Master knocked up 100m out after dictating slow early sections. Jade Pippo was gone 200m out after a prominent run three off the outside fence. Giddy Giddy faltered badly at the 500m after pressing the pace in the center of the track.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (357)-FELLOWSHIP HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Metres

On arrival at the Start, D Whyte was dislodged from FOREVER FUN.

FOREVER FUN then galloped a considerable distance riderless.

Acting on advice from the Veterinary Officer that FOREVER FUN was not suitable to race, that horse was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, FOREVER FUN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After the race, D Whyte was examined by the Club's medical officers and passed fit to fulfil his remaining race riding engagements.

THUNDERSTROKE began awkwardly.

GREAT SPEED began only fairly.

Approaching the 700 Metres.

THUNDERSTROKE, which was being hard ridden to maintain its position, was steadied away from the heels of LEAN JOURNEY when taken out by SEASONS KING which was awkwardly placed outside the heels of GREAT SPEED when that horse was racing close behind MIGHTY GAINS.

THUNDERSTROKE lost its left front plate near the 600 Metres.

Passing the 600 Metres, THUNDERSTROKE was checked when crowded for room outside SEASONS KING which got its head on the side and shifted out away from GREAT SPEED (K C Leung) when racing tight inside that horse which improved into tight running outside MIGHTY GAINS.

K C Leung was advised that whilst the racing manners of SEASONS KING had played a significant part in this incident, nonetheless he must ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room for other runners in similar circumstances.

Near the 450 Metres, SEASONS KING was eased when crowded for room outside GREAT SPEED which was awkwardly placed outside MIGHTY GAINS which lay out.

Approaching the 300 Metres, LEAN JOURNEY was steadied when held up for clear running behind DOUBLE MASTER.

After the 300 Metres, DOUBLE MASTER got its head on the side and lay in under pressure.

Near the 250 Metres, THUNDERSTROKE was shifted in away from the heels of SEASONS KING.

Over the concluding stages, SEASONS KING shifted out and raced tight inside COPY STAR.

After the race, J Moreira was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of GIDDY GIDDY.

He said he had to ride his mount along from near the 600 Metres to maintain its position.

He said after this point he was required to continue to ride the horse along, however, at no time did GIDDY GIDDY respond to his riding and weakened noticeably during the remainder of the race.

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

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

WHISTLE BLOWER, KIM GLORY and LEAN JOURNEY were sent for sampling.
