Recap by phillip woo

Keith Yeung Ming-lun was very lucky to have finished on top with the front-running Happy Force after believing the race was all but wrapped up 100m out. He'll likely get a rap from the stewards but his mount seems to have more points in hand after ringing up a third win from his past four starts. Post-time favourite Happy Force led by nearly two lengths rounding the final bend and just held on from the fast-finishing early favourite Noble Steed for a third win from his past four starts. The 17-pound swing in the weights was the difference in the end but he still appears to have improvement to come. Noble Steed was slightly held up behind the tiring Comfort Zone at the 250m following a patient ride second from the rear which likely cost him the win. A win is definitely around the corner. Mighty Maverick defied a wide and without cover run near the speed from a wide gate to fill a placing. It was a huge run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (431) - CITI INSURANCE SERVICES HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Meters

DRAGON COMMANDER began awkwardly.

EARTH TRILOGY shifted out at the start and bumped CAMERA FACE.

CAMERA FACE then raced in restricted room between HAPPY WIN WIN and EARTH TRILOGY a short distance after the start.

COMFORT LIFE shifted out at the start and bumped SMART CHARADE which in turn shifted out and made contact with CASIMIRO which became unbalanced.

SUPER ELEGANCE and STARSHIP bumped at the start.

After this, SUPER ELEGANCE and STARSHIP, from wide barriers, were shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Also from a wide barrier, NOBLE STEED was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the 550 Metres, DRAGON COMMANDER was awkwardly placed behind CAMERA FACE which commenced to give ground abruptly.

HAPPY WIN WIN, which was following DRAGON COMMANDER, was inconvenienced in consequence.

Passing the 400 Metres, NOBLE STEED was shifted to the inside of CASIMIRO to improve and then was briefly held up for clear running passing the 300 Metres.

CAMERA FACE collapsed after the 200 Metres.

Over the final 150 Metres, NOBLE STEED shifted in under pressure.

Throughout the race, MIGHTY MAVERICK travelled wide and without cover.

W M Lai was fined the sum of $5,000 for unnecessarily using the whip on CASIMIRO when that horse was out of contention.

M L Yeung, the rider of the winner, HAPPY FORCE, was spoken to regarding his riding of that horse over the concluding stages.

He was reminded of the requirement to ensure that he rides his mounts out all the way to the end of the race.

He was also informed of the significant penalties which are imposed on a rider who is found not to have ridden his horses out all the way to the end of the race to the satisfaction of the Stewards.

A veterinary inspection of DRAGON COMMANDER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of DRAGON COMMANDER, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

HAPPY FORCE and NOBLE STEED were sent for sampling.

Samples were also taken from CAMERA FACE.
