Recap by phillip woo

Outsider Le Pagase crossed quickly from a wide gate to settle second behind the runaway leader Gobi Storm, poked his head in front 60m out and kept on gamely for a maiden win at his 21st start. He'll need to prove this was no fluke after failing miserably in his opening two at Sha Tin this term. Gobi Storm wouldn't go down without a fight after clearing to lead from a wide gate through genuine fractions. The claimer's allowance helped but he does appear from his two starts this term to be near a bottom. Spicy Double closed off well following a midfield run to snatch a placing on the wire. He's gone well in both starts for his new trainer this term and could be open his win account soon. Victory Follow Me was snagged back from a wide gate to sit third last and had to switch inside mid-straight before getting up to just miss third. He's clearly a winner waiting to happen at this level. Favourite Born To Race only plodded when asked for an effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (68) - MAGNOLIA HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

After being slow to begin, VICTORY FOLLOW ME was shifted across behind runners to obtain cover at the start.

HAPPY FRIENDSHIP began awkwardly.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, EMPIRE OF MONGOLIA was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of G-ONE UNION.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, SPICY DOUBLE commenced to prove difficult to settle and was checked away from the heels of BORN TO RACE.

Near the 1100 Metres, HAPPY FRIENDSHIP was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of SPICY DOUBLE.

Then at the 1000 Metres, HAPPY FRIENDSHIP was steadied when again awkwardly placed inside the heels of SPICY DOUBLE.

VICTORY FOLLOW ME, which was following, was checked away from the heels of HAPPY FRIENDSHIP.

Over the concluding stages, HAPPY FRIENDSHIP raced tight inside MY GIFT.

Approaching the finishing line, Z Purton, the rider of VICTORY FOLLOW ME, was obliged to stop riding and straighten his mount when it shifted in towards MY GIFT.

For the majority of the race, NO LAUGHING MATTER travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, K C Leung stated that the only explanation he could offer for the performance of EMPIRE OF MONGOLIA was that the horse did not appear to appreciate racing amongst horses during the event.

He said EMPIRE OF MONGOLIA finished off the race only one-paced and was disappointing.

A veterinary inspection of EMPIRE OF MONGOLIA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of G-ONE UNION immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being allowed to race again, G-ONE UNION will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

BORN TO RACE, LE PEGASE and GOBI STORM were sent for sampling.
