Recap by phillip woo

Veteran Showing Character got up 30m out after enjoying a good run one off with cover fore of midfield for a third career success. He had put the writing on the wall last time out. Favourite Golden Cannon finished strongly to make it close on the wire after travelling ungenerously behind midfield at times. He's racing well and remains one to follow over this trip. Massive Power was on his tippy toes over the last 100m after clearing to lead from a wide gate at the 1,450m. It was clearly his best run in a while but he'll need to prove it wasn't a one-off performance. Specked late My Blessing really got going late after settling third last from the widest draw to nearly place. He has been disappointing but is well rated off his current mark. Cash Courier stayed on without menacing following a rail run in midfield. He's capable of bobbing up now and then but is not easy to get right. Lucky Storm came up flat after reefing and tearing in a speed-chasing role.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (416) - YUK SAU HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

As the start was effected, LUCKY COIN bumped the inside of its gate and consequently was slow to begin.

INVESTOR BOOM began awkwardly.

From the outside barriers, TRIUMPHAL WIN and MY BLESSING were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

C Y Ho (GOLDEN CANNON) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1500 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of INVESTOR BOOM, resulting in that horse being unnecessarily crowded for room, being checked and losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

C Y Ho was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 6 March 2019 and to expire on Monday, 11 March 2019 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, C Y Ho was fined $55,000.

After being crossed by MASSIVE POWER after passing the winning post on the first occasion, LUCKY STORM commenced to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up repeatedly when awkwardly placed behind MASSIVE POWER.

Then passing the 1300 Metres, LUCKY STORM, when continuing to prove very difficult to settle, attempted to shift out from behind MASSIVE POWER and bumped DRAGON REGIMENT.
