Recap by phillip woo

This Is Class kept on nicely after hitting the front 100m out following a pace-stalking run to open his win account at only his fifth start after going close in two of four Sha Tin starts. Late-fancied favourite Bullish Brother grudgingly gave way to just hold second after leading from gate five. He has been able to raise his game following a last-start win in Class Five. Early favourite Gift Of Lifeline finished well near the inside after settling fourth from the back following a tardy break to must miss the Quinella spot. Precious Sweetie stayed on well three from the right to finish just out of the placings after a deep run with cover in midfield from a tricky gate. Beauty Energy closed very well from behind midfield to make it a blanket finish for the minors. It was a return to form sporting first-time blinkers. My Family made some ground without threatening from near the back. He's still learning but got going late in his past two of three starts.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (532) - MOUNT BUTLER HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

AMAZING STAR was withdrawn on 26.3.19 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter OLD HAVANA (Z Purton).

Before being allowed to race again, AMAZING STAR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

OLD HAVANA and MY FAMILY bumped at the start.

GIFT OF LIFELINE began only fairly and then lost ground shortly after the start when steadied away from the heels of THIS IS CLASS which shifted out after being bumped by JOLLY BOUNTIFUL.

From the outside barrier, SUPER FUN was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Making the turn after the 1100 Metres, OLD HAVANA raced tight between PRECIOUS SWEETIE which got its head on the side and lay in and CHEER WIN which shifted out and bumped OLD HAVANA.

Approaching and passing the 1000 Metres, BEAUTY ENERGY got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover behind PRECIOUS SWEETIE.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, BEAUTY ENERGY momentarily raced in restricted room between CHEER WIN and PRECIOUS SWEETIE, both of which shifted ground.

At the entrance to the Straight, CHEER WIN shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of OLD HAVANA when awkwardly placed behind AFTER ME and then when being shifted to the inside of AFTER ME was awkwardly placed behind that horse for a short distance.

Passing the 200 Metres, SUPER FUN was directed to the outside of BEAUTY ENERGY to obtain clear running.

Throughout the race, EXCEPTIONAL DESIRE travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of OLD HAVANA and JOLLY BOUNTIFUL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

THIS IS CLASS and BULLISH BROTHER were sent for sampling.
