Recap by phillip woo

Vital Spring just out-finished Big Bully by a bob of the head after a deep run with cover behind midfield for a second win from 22 starts. Big Bully finished well after pulling out into a three-wide spot 650m out following a one--off in midfield. Flying Noble's grudgingly gave way after poking his head in front 100m out following a prominent run on the fence. He's building towards a win. Joy Master was closing with every stride late for fourth following a one-off run behind midfield. Harbour Century kept on reasonably well right travelling one off in second after having to check early on when King Mortar crossed to the lead. Favourite Captain Boss wasn't quick enough to lead but was short of room at times behind the tiring King Mortar in the straight drive travelling midfield on the fence. He's capable of better. Kwai Chung Elite came up flat after a one-out, oneback run with a rise in trip after a good second on opening. He isn't far off a win.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (32) - SHRIKE HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Meters

KWAI CHUNG ELITE began awkwardly.

LIVERBIRD STAR shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of HARBOUR CENTURY, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

WHAMPOA STAR and VITAL SPRING bumped at the start.

After this, WHAMPOA STAR was steadied to obtain cover.

After the 900 Metres, CAPTAIN BOSS, BIG BULLY and JOY MASTER were all steadied when the tempo slackened.

CHATER THUNDER, SOCCER MASTER, FIRE AND GOLD and FRIENDS OF NANJING were all inconvenienced in consequence.

Both H W Lai (KING MORTAR) and K C Leung (HARBOUR CENTURY) were reprimanded and reminded of their obligation to ensure that they do not reduce the tempo such that it results in horses back in the field being unnecessarily hampered.

For some distance after this point, CAPTAIN BOSS continued to prove very difficult to settle and was very awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING NOBLE.

After the 1100 Metres, LIVERBIRD STAR was left racing wide and without cover.

When being steadied in the lead approaching and passing the 800 Metres, KING MORTAR lay out.

After the 600 Metres and rounding the Home Turn, HARBOUR CENTURY got its head on the side and lay out.

After the 200 Metres, KWAI CHUNG ELITE raced tight inside LIVERBIRD STAR which was crowded for room inside BIG BULLY (N Callan) which shifted in under pressure.

N Callan was reprimanded.

After the race, the Veterinary Surgeon reported that CAPTAIN BOSS had bled from its left nostril and had also sustained a minor wound to the left front coronary band.

An endoscopic examination of CAPTAIN BOSS confirmed the horse to be an official bleeder.

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

CAPTAIN BOSS, VITAL SPRING and BIG BULLY were sent for sampling.
