Recap by phillip woo

Even money favourite Dreams Come True kept on gamely straightening a length on top after shaking off pressure to his outside from Very Rich Man for a first win at his seventh start. He's still lightly-raced and there's more to come. Fairy Twins finished well from behind midfield to grab second 50m out. He's not genuine but certainly can produce a big run now and then. Well-punted Telecom Puma stuck on reasonably well to fill a placing despite wandering under pressure at times chasing the leaders. He's made a good impression in his past two of three starts and can bob up at any moment. Mega Heart closed off all right after ducking back inside passing the 200m following a patient ride second from the rear to fill a Quartet spot. He's not easy to get right. Special Stars only plodded over the final 100m following a one-off run fore of midfield. California Argent only plodded following a midfield run on the fence. He requires a longer trip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (569) - THE HONG KONG EXCHANGES CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1000Meters

CHEERFULJET was withdrawn on 9.4.19 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore).

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

MEGA HEART began only fairly and then lost ground when crowded for room between VERY RICH MAN and FLYING TIGER HERO which was taken out by VICTORY MACHINE which in turn was taken out by TELECOM PUMA (Apprentice C Wong).

In this incident, FLYING TIGER HERO also lost ground when badly crowded for room and VICTORY MACHINE was hampered.

Apprentice Wong was told to ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting out in similar circumstances.

Near the 850 Metres, TELECOM PUMA raced tight inside VERY RICH MAN (H T Mo) which shifted in before being directed out abruptly to relieve the tightening to TELECOM PUMA.

This resulted in H T Mo becoming unbalanced.

After the race, K Teetan (CALIFORNIA ARGENT) stated that he had to make a lot of use of his horse in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

He said, in his opinion, because of this CALIFORNIA ARGENT was then not able to finish off the race.

He added that he believed that the horse was looking for further distances based on the manner in which it raced tonight.

A veterinary inspection of CALIFORNIA ARGENT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of VERY RICH MAN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

DREAM COME TRUE and FAIRY TWINS were sent for sampling.
