Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Basic Trilogy settled in the box-seat, eased into the open five deep upon straightening and finished well to take control 120m out for a win at his fourth start and first at the Valley. He was too classy with a drop in class. Photon Willie bided his time at the rear, stayed to the fence upon straightening and closed off well to run down Little Dragon in the final few metres for second to continue his fine form at the Valley this term. Little Dragon handled up the lead to Travel First at the 1,000m, reclaimed the front along the inside 200m out and found a couple too smart in the run to the wire. Pikachu travelled behind midfield along the fence after missing the starts, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished reasonably well to fill a Quartet spot in his first run at the Valley. Late-fancied favourite McQueen settled three back along the fence, straightened near three deep and made a mild bid without ever looking a chance. Happy Rocky was rather one paced in the drive after a one-off run in midfield. Travel First straightened a half-length on top after working to the lead 1,000m out and was stopping 100m out in his first run over the 1,800m. Andoyas only got by beaten rivals after travelling second from the rear. So Fast struggled after a handy run. He didn't get the trip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (489)-FINANCE STREET HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Metres

PIKACHU was slow to begin.

PREMIUM CHAMPION shifted out at the start and bumped GENERAL SHERMAN.

From the outside barrier, ANDOYAS was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

REGENCY KING, which was fractious in the barriers, was ridden along in the early stages, however, failed to muster speed and after the 1400 Metres was left racing wide and without cover.

REGENCY KING was then allowed to improve its position after the 1100 Metres.

Near the 1650 Metres, PREMIUM CHAMPION momentarily raced tight inside HAPPY ROCKY which was taken in by BASIC TRILOGY (J Moreira).

J Moreira was advised to exercise more care.

SO FAST lost its left front plate approaching the 1600 Metres.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, MCQUEEN got its head on the side and was checked after shifting out across the heels of BASIC TRILOGY.

In this incident, MCQUEEN shifted out and bumped HAPPY ROCKY.

Then near the 1350 Metres, PIKACHU was steadied after attempting to improve inside MCQUEEN which then shifted back in to resume its position.

PIKACHU was then awkwardly placed close to the heels of MCQUEEN for a short distance after this.

Passing the 1000 Metres, GENERAL SHERMAN got its head up when racing keenly and awkwardly placed behind PIKACHU.

Near the 450 Metres, PIKACHU was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAPPY ROCKY.

Passing the 250 Metres, ANDOYAS was shifted in away from the heels of PIKACHU which shifted out away from HAPPY ROCKY.

Passing the 150 Metres, ANDOYAS improved into tight running between GENERAL SHERMAN and HAPPY ROCKY which shifted in marginally.

GENERAL SHERMAN then got its head on the side and shifted in abruptly towards the heels of TRAVEL FIRST (C Schofield) which shifted out under pressure.

C Schofield was severely reprimanded and advised that whilst the Stewards were satisfied that GENERAL SHERMAN had contributed to this incident, nonetheless in similar circumstances he would be expected to stop riding and straighten his mounts sooner than he did on this occasion.

After this, GENERAL SHERMAN remained awkwardly placed close to the heels of TRAVEL FIRST.

Over the concluding stages, ANDOYAS was awkwardly placed inside the heels of HAPPY ROCKY and consequently was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of G Lerena (MCQUEEN), 5th 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 SO FAST immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The Stewards will interview K Teetan regarding the disappointing performance of SO FAST at the Sha Tin racemeeting to be conducted on Sunday, 20 March 2016.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that LITTLE DRAGON was lame in its right hind leg.

Before being allowed to race again, LITTLE DRAGON will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
