Recap by phillip woo

Dutch Windmill got the better of favourite Wonderful Tiger 100m out following a prominent run for a return to the winner's circle. He was attractively-rated with a return to his favourite course and distance. Wonderful Tiger did everything right but get the win after hitting the front 200m out following a box-seat run. His return to form was due to a better draw. Management Star finished well to fill a placing after getting squeezed out at the start to travel fourth from the back. He's run well in his three starts this term and should be saluting shortly. Rookie Star just got up in the last stride for fourth following a one-off run racing behind midfield. He's gone all right in both starts over this trip but is limited. Travel Ambassador just failed to hold onto a Quartet spot after a nice run on the fence fore of midfield from a tricky gate. He isn't far off a bottom. Lucky Storm grudgingly gave way after working early to lead rounding the first bend from a wide gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (173) - KOKURA HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

MANAGEMENT STAR began awkwardly and shortly after the start was shifted across behind runners.

COOL ARMY began very awkwardly and lost ground.

From wide barriers, SHOWING CHARACTER and LUCKY STORM were steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, WONDERFUL TIGER commenced to prove difficult to settle and for some distance approaching and passing the 1200 Metres was awkwardly placed behind LUCKY STORM.

Near the 1150 Metres, ROOKIE STAR got its head up when awkwardly placed behind SPINNING DANCER.

ROOKIE STAR then shifted out when continuing to prove difficult to settle.

COOL ARMY, which was racing tight inside ROOKIE STAR, was crowded for room near the 1000 Metres when ROOKIE STAR shifted back in marginally.

After the 900 Metres, MONEY WINNER raced tight inside SPINNING DANCER after shifting out away from the heels of TRAVEL AMBASSADOR.

Near the 450 Metres, COOL ARMY was bumped by MANAGEMENT STAR which shifted out.

Near the 150 Metres, MONEY WINNER was shifted in away from the heels of LUCKY STORM in an endeavour to obtain clear running to the inside of that horse.

MONEY WINNER then raced tight inside LUCKY STORM over the concluding stages when that horse shifted in under pressure.

SHOWING CHARACTER, which was racing to the inside of MONEY WINNER, was awkwardly placed inside that horse as a consequence.

Because of this, both MONEY WINNER and SHOWING CHARACTER were unable to be ridden out over the concluding stages.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on LUCKY STORM at the request of Trainer C S Shum.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, LUCKY STORM will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of VARA PEARL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

DUTCH WINDMILL and WONDERFUL TIGER were sent for sampling.
