Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late Unique Joyful was pestered to his outside by Contribution after rolling to the lead 1,000m from a wide gate but was able to get away with slow fractions and had enough left in the tank to just prevail by a bob of the heads. Contribution pushed forward to sit second at the 900m and kept plugging away to make it tight on the wire. He has the ability but isn't genuine. Favourite Empire Star had the pace against him but did get going from midfield to finish a close third. A step up to a mile should suit his grinding action. Sunny Orient kept plugging away to just miss a placing after moving forward three deep without cover from beyond midfield to sit fourth at the 900m. He's near a bottom. Both the late-fancied Let's Take It Easy and The Full Bloom were all dressed up with nowhere to go behind the leaders and should have gone closer. They never came on travelling worse than midfield on the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (110) - HONG KONG MEI ZHOU ASSOCIATION HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Meters

OWNERS' DELIGHT began awkwardly, resulting in its rider, Apprentice H T Mo, becoming badly unbalanced.

PLAY IT began only fairly.

CONTRIBUTION shifted in at the start and bumped LET'S TAKE IT EASY which in turn shifted in and inconvenienced SUNNY ORIENT.

FINE WITH ME shifted out at the start and bumped AMUSING CITY (T Berry).

After the race, T Berry advised that it was intended for AMUSING CITY to be ridden in a forward position and after becoming unbalanced at the start, he rode his mount along, however, AMUSING CITY did not show sufficient early speed to be able to take up a forward position, therefore he elected, shortly after the start, to shift AMUSING CITY across behind runners.

From wide barriers, FINE WITH ME and DIAMOND LEGEND were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching and passing the 1200 Metres, UNIQUE JOYFUL got its head up when proving very difficult to settle when racing outside the lead.

Near the 1150 Metres, EMPIRE STAR was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CONTRIBUTION.

After the 1100 Metres, SUNNY ORIENT was left racing wide and without cover.

After the 1000 Metres, FINE WITH ME, which was travelling keenly, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of STARLOT and then after the 800 Metres got its head on the side and lay out when it continued to be awkwardly placed close to the heels of STARLOT.

Near the 650 Metres, OWNERS' DELIGHT was taken wider by PLAY IT which shifted to the outside of CHEERS CONQUEROR.

STARLOT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PLAY IT rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight.

In this incident, STARLOT bumped with DIAMOND LEGEND which raced tight inside OWNERS' DELIGHT.

Approaching the 400 Metres, AMUSING CITY was shifted out away from the heels of OWNERS' DELIGHT which made the turn awkwardly.

Both LET'S TAKE IT EASY and THE FULL BLOOM were unable to obtain clear running over the final 200 Metres and because of this neither horse was able to be tested.

After the race, S Clipperton stated that due to the slow tempo in the middle stages, DIAMOND LEGEND, from the rear of the field, was not able to make ground to be competitive in the Straight.

He said however he believed that because of the tempo of the race DIAMOND LEGEND's run was better than it might have appeared.

A veterinary inspection of DIAMOND LEGEND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

EMPIRE STAR, UNIQUE JOYFUL and CONTRIBUTION were sent for sampling.
