Recap by phillip woo

Clement Legend never looked back after circling the field 1,000m to take control 700m out for a maiden win at his 12th start. It was a lovely ride by Karis Teetan but he had put the writing on the wall earlier this month and there does appear to be another win in him. The Joy Of Giving ran on well following a midfield run to grab second 200m out. He's a winner waiting to happen over this course with second in three of his past four starts. Smart Baby came home third best following a prominent run. He should eventually get away with a win in this grade. Little Fantasy ran on steadily near the inside after settling third from the rear from a wide gate to snatch fourth at a price. He hasn't been too far away in recent runs. Old-timer Rock The Tree stayed on to just miss fourth sitting closer than usual fore of midfield. He's more effective ridden held up. Favourite Amazing Gold didn't get the trip chasing the leader after handing up to Wealthy Fortune 1,300m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (127) - YAU KOM TAU HANDICAP - Class 5 - 2200Meters

PEARL FURU began awkwardly and lost ground.

From the outside barrier, LITTLE FANTASY was steadied and shifted across behind runners in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the 1900 Metres, ROCKET GO raced tight inside ROCK THE TREE which was taken in by DAZZLE WINNER (C Schofield).

DAZZLE WINNER was then shifted out to relieve the tightening to runners to its inside.

Then passing the 1800 Metres, ROCKET GO was steadied away from the heels of ROCK THE TREE (U Rispoli) which, after racing tight inside DAZZLE WINNER, then shifted in of its own accord.

Both C Schofield and U Rispoli were severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that they provide comfortable racing room for other runners.

Passing the 500 Metres, LITTLE FANTASY was awkwardly placed behind GLENEALY PRIZE.

Approaching and passing the 400 Metres, THE JOY OF GIVING was unable to improve when held up behind WEALTHY FORTUNE which came under pressure.

Near the 350 Metres, LITTLE FANTASY was steadied away from the heels of GLENEALY PRIZE.

Passing the 300 Metres, THE JOY OF GIVING was shifted to the inside of AMAZING GOLD to obtain clear running after being momentarily awkwardly placed behind that horse.

The performance of ROCKET GO, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

When questioned regarding the performance of AMAZING GOLD, M L Yeung stated that he was able to take up a forward position in the early stages without having to make any use of the horse.

He said after allowing WEALTHY FORTUNE to cross AMAZING GOLD near the 1700 Metres, AMAZING GOLD travelled satisfactorily until the pace of the race quickened after the 800 Metres.

He said AMAZING GOLD immediately came under pressure and did not show the same turn of foot as CLEMENT LEGEND which improved to the outside of AMAZING GOLD approaching the 700 Metres.

He said after this AMAZING GOLD responded only fairly to his riding and, in his opinion, was disappointing in its failure to finish off the race.

He added having regard to the fact that AMAZING GOLD was stepping up in distance today, he did suggest to connections that the horse may be better suited being ridden more quietly over a distance such as that of today's race.

A veterinary inspection of AMAZING GOLD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of DAZZLE WINNER immediately following the race found that horse to be distressed.

The performance of DAZZLE WINNER, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

AMAZING GOLD, CLEMENT LEGEND and THE JOY OF GIVING were sent for sampling.
