Recap by phillip woo

Specked late, Blaze Stamina jumped well to land a spot one off in second from a wide gate behind the outright leader Borntoachieve, swept to the front 230m out and repelled a challenge from Diego Kosta for back-to-back wins despite a return to Sha Tin. Firming late, Diego Kosta stayed on well following a box-seat run, but found one too smart. Mr Bogart was held up until after a rails run in midfield until gaining an opening nearly four deep at the 130m and finished nicely thereafter to edge Glorious Avenue for a placing in an encouraging debut. Glorious Avenue settled worse than midfield and one off the fence, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished reasonably well. Favourite Sun Touch couldn't get in with cover from a wide gate travelling three deep in fourth, straightened three deep and was only plodding over the final 200m. Borntoachieve cornered two lengths on top after dictating a genuine pace on the lead, but was stopping 100m out. Brilliant Dream recovered from a slow break to travel midfield at the 1,000m, eased into the open five deep at the 350m and came up flat over the final 200m. Aerospeed got by beaten rivals after making his run at the back of the field. Diamond King never ran on widest out after a deep run travelling near the back.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (642)-TUEN MUN PUBLIC RIDING SCHOOL HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

BRILLIANT DREAM began only fairly.

SUN TOUCH began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped AEROSPEED.

SUN TOUCH was then bumped by DIAMOND KING which shifted out.

From a wide barrier, AEROSPEED was then steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 1150 Metres, JOLLY SPRING was steadied away from the heels of YOUNG EMPIRE which shifted out.

Making the turn approaching the 900 Metres, MR BOGART got its head on the side, shifted out and brushed YOUNG EMPIRE which in turn shifted out, resulting in SUN TOUCH being bumped and taken wider.

Near the 850 Metres, BRILLIANT DREAM got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of MR BOGART which was being ridden along when reluctant to maintain its position inside YOUNG EMPIRE.

Near the 650 Metres, MR BOGART became badly unbalanced when racing tight inside YOUNG EMPIRE which was racing tight inside SUN TOUCH (Z Purton) which shifted in marginally.

GLORIOUS AVENUE and BRILLIANT DREAM, which were following, were inconvenienced in consequence.

Z Purton was advised that whilst the amount of ground that SUN TOUCH shifted at this stage was not great, nonetheless he must ensure that he leaves sufficient racing room for runners to his inside in future.

In the early part of the Straight, DIEGO KOSTA raced in restricted room when improving into tight running between BORNTOACHIEVE and BLAZE STAMINA.

Also in the early part of the Straight, MR BOGART had some difficulty obtaining clear running.

T H So (GLORIOUS AVENUE) dropped his right rein near the 50 Metres.

After the race, Y T Cheng stated that after beginning awkwardly, DIAMOND KING was inclined to lay out throughout the race and in the Straight, after being placed under pressure, did not finish off the race as expected and raced "flat".

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

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

A veterinary inspection of JOLLY SPRING immediately following the race found that horse to be lame in its left front leg with a medial sesamoid fracture.

Before being allowed to race again, JOLLY SPRING will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SUN TOUCH, BLAZE STAMINA and DIEGO KOSTA were sent for sampling.
