Recap by phillip woo

Suited by the pace, Andoyas sliced his way through the field after travelling second from the rear to get up in deep stretch for a second straight win. He'll have to carry near top weight when he next steps out but is racing in great spirits and might be able to chalk up another over the 1,800m or further over this course. Happy Rocky hit the front 50m out after taking off from near the back at the 850m but found one just too good. He had put the writing on the wall last start at Sha Tin and can ring up a win soon. Industrialist Way defied a deep run travelling fore of midfield to hold onto a placing after assuming the front 150m out. He's versatile and appears from his past three to be near a bottom. Enreaching would have gotten third if ridden with a bit more vigour inside the final 20m after making a bid from worse than midfield. It was a pleasing first run back in the grade following a dirt win. Jolly Gene was badly held up in the box-seat until the final 150m. He can be forgiven for the run as can favourite Giant Turtle who never gained a run after saving ground in midfield. Club Life didn't fold all that badly after pressing the fast pace of Dr Win Win to his outside. He's a winner waiting to happen in Class Four.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (479)-GLOUCESTER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Metres

MASTER CERAMIBO shifted in abruptly on jumping despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in AMAZING GOLD being crowded for room outside ANDOYAS which became unbalanced after being bumped by AMAZING GOLD.

A short distance later, AMAZING GOLD was again crowded for room between MASTER CERAMIBO and ANDOYAS which was taken out by JOLLY GENE which shifted out after making contact with GIANT TURTLE.

In this incident, MASTER CERAMIBO became badly unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by AMAZING GOLD.

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

Passing the 1600 Metres, ANDOYAS was steadied after being crowded for room inside HAPPY ROCKY which got its head on the side and shifted in away from THE SYLPH.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, INDUSTRIALIST WAY was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 450 Metres, GIANT TURTLE shifted out and bumped PEARL WARM WARM.

GIANT TURTLE was then badly held up for clear running rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight until passing the 150 Metres.

S Clipperton (GIANT TURTLE) explained that after being badly held up for clear running a run appeared outside DR WIN WIN which was giving ground and inside JOLLY GENE passing the 150 Metres.

He said he was reluctant to ride his mount along at this time as he was aware that JOLLY GENE was looking to improve its position outside CLUB LIFE.

He said he felt that had he have ridden GIANT TURTLE at this time, he would have been held up for clear running again behind CLUB LIFE and inside JOLLY GENE and for this reason he waited for JOLLY GENE to shift in and improve to the outside of that horse approaching the 50 Metres and then rode his mount out hands and heels to the winning post.

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

JOLLY GENE was held up for clear running from shortly after entering the Straight until passing the 200 Metres.

Passing the 100 Metres, JOLLY GENE was awkwardly placed inside the heels of INDUSTRIALIST WAY when improving into tight running between that horse and CLUB LIFE.

Passing the 200 Metres, MASTER CERAMIBO, which was making ground, was steadied away from the heels of PEARL WARM WARM (U Rispoli) which shifted to the outside of INDUSTRIALIST WAY to obtain clear running.

U Rispoli was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Also passing the 200 Metres, AMAZING GOLD was shifted out away from the heels of THE SYLPH to obtain clear running.

Approaching the 100 Metres, ENREACHING and HAPPY ROCKY bumped.

When questioned, C Y Ho stated that, from the outside barrier, he had been asked to ride DR WIN WIN in the lead if possible.

He said after riding his mount positively out of the barriers, he allowed its natural speed to take it to the lead after the 1600 Metres and he was able to cross JOLLY GENE and raced on the rail approaching the winning post on the first occasion.

He said when CLUB LIFE improved to his outside after passing the winning post on the first occasion, DR WIN WIN commenced to travel keenly and would not relax.

He said he tried to steady the tempo on DR WIN WIN as he was aware the race was being run at a fast tempo after the 1200 Metres, however, DR WIN WIN continued to race keenly and he was reluctant to apply more pressure to the horse to steady as he did not want to break its stride.

He said because he was aware that the race had been run at a faster pace than he would have hoped, he attempted to hold his mount together as long as possible rounding the Home Turn when horses improved to his outside to afford DR WIN WIN every opportunity to finish off the race.

He said however that because of the tempo of the race in the early and middle stages, DR WIN WIN was then not able to close off the race and gave ground in the Straight.

C Y Ho was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, in the opinion of the Stewards, he should have made more of an effort to steady DR WIN WIN in the lead so as to provide the horse with the best opportunity to finish off the race.

GIANT TURTLE, ANDOYAS and HAPPY ROCKY were sent for sampling.
