Recap by phillip woo

Money was spot on for Showing Character who made use of gate one on the rails in midfield to win going away 150m out for back-to-back successes following the addition of a tongue-tie. He could remain competitive off a lightweight despite a return to Class Four. The future looks bleak for the rest when the next best is three lengths in behind. Happy Century did have a tough run in midfield but still came home well to grab second. He has gone better in his past two starts following the removal of the blinkers. Treasure And Gold made good ground down two from the outside after fading to last at the 700m to snare a placing from Forever Fun. He has trouble winning but has come on nicely to fill the frame in his past two at both tracks and three of six outings this term. Forever Fun had every chance after easing back to travel in the box-seat behind Noble Buddies. He'll require a claimer's allowance. Early favourite Manhattan Striker was given every chance following a prominent run and found nothing when asked for an effort in the drive even with 'King Of Class Five' Joao Moreira hopping on board.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (261)-LAI CHI KOK HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

GAINFULJET was withdrawn on raceday afternoon by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (distressed following transit incident).

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

Shortly after the start, PROPEL REPEL shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of MANHATTAN STRIKER.

MANHATTAN STRIKER then became unbalanced and shifted out, resulting in PROPEL REPEL being crowded for room inside FOREVER FUN.

From the outside barriers, TELECOM BOOM and ABLE TALENT were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

When being steadied after the 1000 Metres, NOBLE BUDDIES travelled keenly and after the 900 Metres was allowed to improve into the lead.

After the 800 Metres, HAPPY CENTURY was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, FOREVER FUN got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of SIR JOHN.

Also making the turn after the 600 Metres, TELECOM BOOM shifted out and raced tight inside PROPEL REPEL.

Near the 50 Metres, PROPEL REPEL was crowded for room between NOBLE BUDDIES which shifted out marginally and SIR JOHN which shifted in under pressure.

In this incident, NOBLE BUDDIES and PROPEL REPEL both became unbalanced after bumping.

When questioned regarding the performance of MANHATTAN STRIKER, J Moreira stated that he was able to obtain a good position on the horse from an inside barrier and MANHATTAN STRIKER travelled well until near the 500 Metres.

He said after this point MANHATTAN STRIKER came off the bridle and he had to ride the horse along in order to have it maintain its position.

He said MANHATTAN STRIKER did not respond to his riding and was most disappointing in the manner in which it weakened out of the race after the 300 Metres.

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

The performance of MANHATTAN STRIKER, one of the favoured runners of the race and which finished last, was considered unacceptable.

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

SHOWING CHARACTER and HAPPY CENTURY were sent for sampling.
