Recap by phillip woo

The Sylph settled one off the fence in midfield, rallied five deep upon straightening, engaged the late-fancied Victory Boys passing the 200m and gained the upper hand 50m out for a first win at his 25th start. Victory Boys travelled fourth from the rear, quickened to poke his head in front with three wider out at the 200m and just lost out in a ding-dong battle. Spinning Dancer finished well with two wider out after travelling one off the fence behind midfield to get up in the final few metres for third prize. Noble De Man shared the lead with favourite Wisky, assumed the lead 300m out and was collared late for a placing. Yeung Sing closed off nicely two from the right after settling second from the rear to just miss a Quartet spot. Wisky was softened on the lead and didn't have much to offer over the final 150m. Baltic Warrior appeared to break down 830m out after making his run at the rear of the field.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (771)-THE KING HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Metres

WISKY was crowded for room on jumping between YEUNG SING and BRILLIANT MONKEYS which shifted out.

GRACEFUL KINGDOM was slow to begin.

THANKSGIVING began only fairly and then when being ridden along in the early stages in an attempt to obtain a forward position however was awkwardly placed inside the heels of SPINNING DANCER.

Then near the 1500 Metres, THANKSGIVING was steadied away from the heels of SPINNING DANCER (G Lerena) which shifted in when not properly clear.

G Lerena was reprimanded and told to ensure that he is properly clear when shifting ground.

THANKSGIVING subsequently travelled wide and without cover for the majority of the race.

The performance of THANKSGIVING, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

Approaching the 1000 Metres, BALTIC WARRIOR broke down in its right front leg and was eased out of the race.

FRANCE VALOUR, which was following BALTIC WARRIOR, was shifted out abruptly away from the heels of that horse.

Rounding the Home Turn, SPINNING DANCER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of THANKSGIVING.

In the Straight, both THE SYLPH and VICTORY BOYS shifted out under pressure.

Over the concluding stages, B Prebble (VICTORY BOYS) was restricted in his use of the whip when racing tight outside THE SYLPH.

When questioned regarding the performance of WISKY, C Y Ho stated that unlike last start when the horse was able to race with cover, WISKY was left racing in the lead when the rider of NOBLE DE MAN did not cross WISKY and elected to race outside his mount.

He said when obliged to be ridden without cover and with another horse positioned directly outside WISKY, his mount would not settle and consequently was not able to finish off the race as strongly as it did at its last start when covered up during the race.

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

WISKY, THE SYLPH and VICTORY BOYS were sent for sampling.
