Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite Best Effort was nicely rated in front and drew clear after straightening two lengths on top. He had fallen to a dangerous mark and a tactics change to lead in his past two start under 10-pound claimer Alfred Chan Ka-hei. Fortune Patrol ran on well near the inside after settling third from the back to grab second in deep stretch. Wellbacked Little Fantasy just held on for a placing after a box-seat run. He has been racing well without winning all season long. Gorgeous Again finished very well down the outside to nearly place after settling at the rear from a wide gate. It was his best run of the campaign with a return to his favourite Sha Tin 1,800m. Virtus Star stayed on all right from beyond midfield after being held up for a run from the 400m to 300m. It was a better effort down in grade over a longer trip. Early favourite Young Glory was never a factor after settling fifth from the back and three-deep from a wide gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (578) - EMERALD HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Meters

FORTUNE PATROL and ENJOYABLE SUCCESS began only fairly.

BEST EFFORT began awkwardly.

VICTORY FOLLOW ME and PROUD SKY were crowded for room on jumping between TRIUMPH and DOCTORS DELIGHT, both of which shifted ground.

Then after being ridden along for a short distance, PROUD SKY failed to muster speed and subsequently travelled very wide and without cover for the majority of the race.

From wide barriers, GORGEOUS AGAIN and YOUNG GLORY were both shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Rounding the Home Turn, MONEY MARSHAL was awkwardly placed close to the heels of TRIUMPH which was commencing to give ground.

Then passing the 400 Metres, MONEY MARSHAL was steadied when disappointed for running between TRIUMPH and DOCTORS DELIGHT where there was insufficient room.

Passing the 400 Metres, VIRTUS STAR was awkwardly placed behind PEARL FURU (N Callan) when attempting to improve outside that horse.

Then passing the 350 Metres, TRIUMPH, which was continuing to give ground, was steadied away from the heels of VIRTUS STAR which, when endeavouring to improve to the outside of PEARL FURU, was taken out by that horse which shifted out under pressure.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that VIRTUS STAR had not established running to the outside of PEARL FURU, nonetheless N Callan was advised to ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground in similar circumstances.

After this, TRIUMPH finished tailed out.

The performance of TRIUMPH was considered unacceptable.

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

Passing the 300 Metres, GORGEOUS AGAIN was held up for clear running and near the 250 Metres was directed to the outside of YOUNG GLORY to obtain clear running.

Approaching the 200 Metres, DOCTORS DELIGHT was crowded for room between PROUD SKY and VIRTUS STAR which, after initially being taken out by PEARL FURU, then shifted out away from that horse.

Throughout the race, DOCTORS DELIGHT travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of ENJOYABLE SUCCESS and PROUD SKY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BEST EFFORT and FORTUNE PATROL were sent for sampling.
