Recap by phillip woo

Lunar Zephyr dived late after settling three off the stands side in third to snatch victory from raging favourite Encore Boy in the shadows of the post. He had put the writing on the wall last start behind Zero Hedge and the 19-pound swing in the weights with Matthew Poon Ming-fai engaged certainly helped. Encore Boy assumed the front 350m out after parking outside the leader Tourbillon King on the grandstand side following a much better start this time around and was nipped on the wire. He'll be winning a race shortly. Tourbillion King grudgingly gave way after jumping nicely to lead near the stands side from gate nine in his best run out of four. He's headed in the right direction. Beaut Beaut stayed on well travelling ahead of midfield to just finish out of the placings in a solid debut performance despite having only one lead-up trial. He'll certainly come on for this run and is one who'll appreciate a longer sprint when fully mature. Punted late, Multigogo held his ground travelling midfield in the center of the course from a tough gate. He'll likely strengthen up during the break and is likely one for next season. Newcomer Ocean Elite gave way following a handy run. He needs more education.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (715)-HKU FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Metres

AIMING HIGH was withdrawn on 10.6.17 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter FLYING NOBLE (K C Ng).

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

LUNAR ZEPHYR began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped COLOURFUL ACHIEVER.

COLOURFUL ACHIEVER was then crowded for room between LUNAR ZEPHYR which continued to shift in and OCEAN ELITE.

LIGHTNING MISSILE began only fairly and shortly after the start was crowded for room between OCEAN ELITE and DAZZLE which shifted out.

GOLDINGTON HORN was slow to begin and on jumping was bumped by BEAUT BEAUT which began awkwardly and shifted in.

FLYING NOBLE lost its left front plate shortly after the start.

TOURBILLON KING lost its right front plate at the 800 Metres and its left front plate near the 700 Metres.

Passing the 800 Metres, LIGHTNING MISSILE raced tight between COLOURFUL ACHIEVER and DAZZLE which was awkwardly placed outside FLYING NOBLE.

Passing the 400 Metres, ENJOY LIFE got its head on the side and hung out and in doing so inconvenienced FLYING NOBLE.

After this, ENJOY LIFE continued to hang out under pressure.

Near the 150 Metres, BEAUT BEAUT, which had been laying in under pressure, was shifted to the outside of LUNAR ZEPHYR.

Then approaching the 50 Metres, BEAUT BEAUT shifted out away from TOURBILLON KING and when racing tight on the hindquarters of LUNAR ZEPHYR, became unbalanced and blundered.

OCEAN ELITE, which was following BEAUT BEAUT, was steadied as a consequence.

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

LUNAR ZEPHYR and ENCORE BOY were sent for sampling.
