Recap by phillip woo

Punted late Numero Uno kicked to the front 250m following a lovely run in the box-seat and kept on strongly to notch a third win from 43 starts. It was a case of falling far enough in the handicaps and a dream run. Favourite London Master stayed on reasonably well after settling one-out, one-back to just sneak home second best. The sharp rise in weight following a last-start win took its toll. The market expected a better run from Good Choice Ahead and he finished nicely near the inside to just miss second after settling fourth from the back. He might be on the right track now. Har Har Heart closed off all right from beyond midfield to fill a Quartet spot. He's naturally improving and the switch to the Valley appeared to suit him. Royal Chocolate kept up a grinding run following a rail run in midfield after a slow break. He's still learning the ropes but has shown ability in his three starts and can breakthrough at any time.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (228) - KOWLOON CITY HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

Just prior to the start being effected, ROYAL CHOCOLATE became fractious and then as the start was effected lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently was slow to begin.

HAR HAR HEART shifted out on jumping and bumped GOOD CHOICE AHEAD which shifted out and made contact with HAPPY FIERY DRAGON, resulting in all three horses becoming unbalanced.

Then a short distance later, HAR HAR HEART was crowded for room between GOOD CHOICE AHEAD and GLORIOUS LEGACY which shifted out.

From the outside barriers, SPARKLING TALENT and SUPREME WITNESS were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Also from a wide barrier, JOYFUL PARK was steadied to obtain cover in the early stages.

Making the turn after the 500 Metres, JUMBO BUS got its head on the side and lay out.

Passing the 300 Metres, JUMBO BUS (N Callan) got its head on the side and shifted in abruptly, resulting in the horse having to be checked away from the heels of LONDON MASTER.

After this, JUMBO BUS continued to lay in when giving ground.

After the race, N Callan reported that his mount, which was having its first race start tonight, raced greenly throughout the race and came under pressure prior to the Home Turn.

He said JUMBO BUS weakened noticeably in the Straight when continuing to race greenly.

A veterinary inspection of JUMBO BUS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The racing manners and performance of JUMBO BUS were considered unacceptable.

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

Approaching the 100 Metres, GLORIOUS LEGACY raced tight inside JUMBO BUS which lay in.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPY FIERY DRAGON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

NUMERO UNO and LONDON MASTER were sent for sampling.
