Recap by phillip woo

Forza Angel defied a deep run without cover near the speed to scoot away near the 200m for a first win at his ninth start. He was suited by the step back in distance and wet track here. Hong Kong Bet ran on well following a three-deep run with cover in midfield to grab second 50m out. He was able to follow up a last-start win and there's likely more to come from him. Magic Legend finished well down the outside to make it close for second after a one-off run behind midfield. He has been threatening to break through in his past three starts. Mr Right was on his tippy toes over the last 100m after getting headed for the front approaching the 200m. Encore Boy rallied well but left things too late from the rear of the field. Favourite Frustrated ran into a tonne of traffic and was untested over the last 200m following a prominent run with cover. Punted late Healthy Luck came up flat following a box-seat run. He might be better suited on a fast track.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (700) - NAM CHUNG RIVER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Meters

From the outside barriers, ENCORE BOY and BREEDERS' SKY were shifted across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the 950 Metres, BEAR AGAIN was crowded for room between FRUSTRATED and HEALTHY LUCK which shifted out.

Approaching the 700 Metres, ARDENODE was steadied away from the heels of MAGIC LEGEND (K C Leung) which shifted in when not properly clear.

K C Leung was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

Throughout the race, FORZA ANGEL travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, G van Niekerk stated that it was intended for FRUSTRATED to obtain a forward position.

He said after FRUSTRATED began awkwardly, the horse took some time to muster speed despite being ridden along.

He said after being crossed in the early stages by DREAM COME TRUE, he was required to take a trailing position on FRUSTRATED which was slightly further back in the field than had been intended.

He said nonetheless the horse travelled well and at the entrance to the Straight he attempted to shift to the outside of FORZA ANGEL to obtain clear running.

He said when HONG KONG BET maintained its position to the outside of FRUSTRATED and as his mount was not quickening strongly enough to force HONG KONG BET out, he directed FRUSTRATED to the inside of DREAM COME TRUE near the 250 Metres in an attempt to obtain a run.

He said as he was attempting to improve between MR RIGHT and DREAM COME TRUE near the 200 Metres, MR RIGHT drifted out under pressure which resulted in FRUSTRATED being disappointed for running between those horses.

He added he then shifted FRUSTRATED to the inside of MR RIGHT near the 50 Metres, however, MR RIGHT then shifted in close to the finishing line which resulted in him having to steady FRUSTRATED away from the heels of that horse.

He said, in his opinion, had he have been able to obtain clear running in the Straight, FRUSTRATED would have finished off the race well.

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

A veterinary inspection of DREAM COME TRUE and HEALTHY LUCK immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FRUSTRATED, FORZA ANGEL and HONG KONG BET were sent for sampling.
