Recap by phillip woo

Choice Exchequer powered clear at the 200m after enjoying the box seat instead of his usual role up front to land a betting move. He's always a chance at this level. Sweet Bean closed off nicely three from the right following a midfield run to snatch second on the wire. He was well rated on a win last season. Early favourite Kerkeni wasn't suited by the final two sectionals of the race but ran on strongly near the inside after getting going 450m out travelling third from the rear. He'll be winning shortly if he remains in the grade. Glory Sunshine still knocked up despite enjoying a reasonably easy time on the lead. Island Flyer was already paddling when baulked for a run near the outside by Malayan Pearl 200m out after trying to get going following a rails run from behind midfield. It was a disappointing run following a good second over a mile 15 days back.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (040)-YAU TONG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Metres

KERKENI and LOYAL CRAFTSMAN were crowded for room on jumping between GLORY SUNSHINE and SWEET BEAN which began awkwardly and then was taken out marginally by CHOICE EXCHEQUER.

From a wide barrier, HIGH SPEED METRO was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

For some distance approaching the winning post on the first occasion, LOYAL CRAFTSMAN was steadied when attempting to improve inside SWEET BEAN (C Y Ho) where there was doubtful room.

C Y Ho was advised to be aware of the position of other runners when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, MI SAVVY BOY was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 1100 Metres, SWEET BEAN and MI SAVVY BOY bumped.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, HIGH SPEED METRO was steadied away from the heels of LOYAL CRAFTSMAN when racing tight inside SPICY SIAM.

Near the 450 Metres, LOYAL CRAFTSMAN was hampered when steadied away from the heels of ISLAND FLYER (O Bosson) which shifted out to improve.

O Bosson was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is properly clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Rounding the Home Turn, DRAGON GLORY raced tight between SWEET BEAN and WIN CHANCE which, when commencing to shift to the outside of CHOICE EXCHEQUER, was taken out further by that horse.

Near the 100 Metres, ISLAND FLYER was inconvenienced by MALAYAN PEARL which was directed out by WIN CHANCE.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of ISLAND FLYER, O Bosson stated that it had been intended for the horse to be ridden in a forward position, however, ISLAND FLYER did not show any early speed despite being ridden along and this resulted in the horse racing much further back in the field than intended.

He said when racing on the rail, ISLAND FLYER was inclined to lay in as it had done in a number of its races.

He added he shifted ISLAND FLYER out after the 500 Metres in order to improve into the race and immediately on straightening the horse hung in and proved difficult to ride.

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

A veterinary inspection of MI SAVVY BOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

CHOICE EXCHEQUER and SWEET BEAN were sent for sampling.
