Recap by phillip woo

Favourite What Else But You raced clear at the 160m after bumping California Whip at the 250m following a move from near the back to ring up a sixth win from 16 starts. He was too smart with a return to Class One. Solar Patch came on well down the outside from the rear of the field to grab second 50m out. It was a terrific first run back from leg issues and he's clearly got points in hand. Plunged late Regency Bo Bo held on for third after getting his own way in front carrying a feather weight. He's always a chance if left alone up front. Morethanlucky stayed on without menacing in midfield after a tardy break. The start cost him. California Whip was already plodding when copping a bump from the winner approaching the 200m following a pace-stalking run. He's trying to find his mark. Jolly Banner had no excuse following a prominent run. The big weight with a step back up to the 1,400m was too much to handle but he's likely on his mark.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (401) - THE CHINESE NEW YEAR CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 1 - 1400Meters

MORETHANLUCKY began only fairly.

In the early stages, SOLAR PATCH was steadied to obtain cover.

Approaching the 700 Metres, MORETHANLUCKY raced tight outside JOLLY BANNER when taken wider by that horse which shifted away from the rail to follow CALIFORNIA WHIP.

Passing the 400 Metres, JOLLY BANNER and MORETHANLUCKY bumped.

Passing the 300 Metres, WHAT ELSE BUT YOU shifted out marginally and bumped CALIFORNIA WHIP, causing both horses to become badly unbalanced.

After the race, M F Poon was unable to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of JOLLY BANNER.

A veterinary inspection of JOLLY BANNER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

WHAT ELSE BUT YOU and SOLAR PATCH were sent for sampling.
