Recap by phillip woo

Victory Boys got up 40m out after taking closer order fore of midfield at the 850m to put a sixth win on the board from 29 starts. Faithful Trinity closed well following handy run to make it close on the wire. He's come to hand in his past few starts and will be saluting shortly. Punted late McQueen kept on gamely in the box-seat after being headed for the lead at the 750m. Favourite Super Chic was short of room inside the last 50m when trying to wind up from midfield and should have placed. It was a good run in defeat but he clearly wants a further trip over this course. Quick Return was stopping 100m out after looping the field at the 900m from a wide gate to lead 750m out. Willie Way ran on without menacing after travelling closer than usual in midfield. He seems to go better at Sha Tin. Ten Flames wasn't beaten far with no clear run over the final 200m when trying to get going from near the back. He could spring up in Class Four next time out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (656) - SUFFOLK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Meters

From wide barriers, TAI SMART, TEN FLAMES and QUICK RETURN were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

When questioned regarding VICTORY BOYS being able to shift in and assume the position in front of his mount BEST REWARD soon after passing the winning post on the first occasion, Apprentice H N Wong stated that he had ridden his mount positively in the early stages to take up a position behind midfield.

He said as the field approached the winning post on the first occasion, he ceased riding his mount along and had it travelling comfortably and although it was available for him to recommence riding his mount along to prevent VICTORY BOYS from shifting in, he felt this would not be in the best interests of BEST REWARD and therefore VICTORY BOYS was able to assume the position behind WILLIE WAY and in advance of BEST REWARD.

Apprentice Wong was advised to ensure that he rides competitively at all times and does not relinquish his position too easily After leaving the 800 Metres, VICTORY BOYS was inconvenienced when taken out by RED MARVEL which shifted out.

SUPER CHIC lost its left hind plate after the 700 Metres.

When improving between FAITHFUL TRINITY and RED MARVEL approaching the 200 Metres, SUPER CHIC was momentarily crowded for room due to both horses shifting slight ground.

TEN FLAMES, which was racing to the inside of SUPER CHIC, was momentarily held up behind FAITHFUL TRINITY at this stage.

TEN FLAMES was again held up for clear running over the concluding stages and as a consequence was not able to be fully tested.

Over the final 50 Metres, SUPER CHIC raced in restricted room between FAITHFUL TRINITY and VICTORY BOYS which shifted in under pressure.

Just prior to the finishing line, SUPER CHIC was steadied and was not able to be ridden out to the end of the race when VICTORY BOYS (B Prebble) shifted in further.

B Prebble was severely reprimanded and advised of his responsibility to keep his mounts straight.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that VICTORY BOYS had finished distressed.

Before being allowed to race again, VICTORY BOYS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SUPER CHIC, VICTORY BOYS and FAITHFUL TRINITY were sent for sampling.
