Recap by phillip woo

In a race run to suit, Helene Charisma came on nicely from the rear to grab victory near the 60m. He's taken a while to breakthrough but has now won three of his past seven and lived up to a solid effort 14-days back. Early favourite Tianchi Monster found one too good after finding the front 250m out following a handy run on the fence. Ruthven kept on well for a placing after getting his own way in front. He has been a disappointment but is well rated to start the campaign. Post-time favourite Green Luck came up flat over the last 150m after getting fanned wide rounding the final bend chasing the leaders in third. He wasn't able to defy the sharp rise in weight. Well-backed late Enrichment was yielding ground 300m out after rolling forward to stalk the leader 1,400m out. He did have to work too hard early on to track a genuine pace. Mr So And So never let down after making his run fore of midfield and one off the fence. He needed the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (49) - HEUNG YIP HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1800Meters

ENRICHMENT began only fairly and then was momentarily crowded for room shortly after the start between HELENE CHARISMA and BRAVE LEGEND which was taken out by MR SO AND SO.

HELENE CHARISMA was steadied to obtain cover in the early stages.

Approaching the 1600 Metres, BRAVE LEGEND became unbalanced as HELENE CHARISMA (G van Niekerk) shifted across behind that horse.

G van Niekerk was advised to ensure that he exercises due care when shifting ground so as not to allow his mounts to be in a position to race too close to other runners in front.

Approaching the 400 Metres, ENRICHMENT raced tight outside TIAHCHI MONSTER which improved to be racing between ENRICHMENT and RUTHVEN.

After the 300 Metres, RUTHVEN raced tight inside TIANCHI MONSTER.

Mr C Fownes, the trainer of GREEN LUCK, explained that as there was no obvious leader in tonight's race, he was concerned that the race would be run at a slow tempo.

He said were GREEN LUCK to be ridden from towards the rear of the field, he was concerned that the race would not be run to suit and as such GREEN LUCK would not be able to finish off the race.

He said accordingly, he instructed C Y Ho, the rider of GREEN LUCK, to ride the horse positively in the early stages and obtain a position behind the speed if possible.

C Y Ho (GREEN LUCK) was fined $5,000 for improper use of the whip in that he raised weal marks over the horse's right flank.

A veterinary inspection of MR SO AND SO and ENRICHMENT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GREEN LUCK, HELENE CHARISMA and TIANCHI MONSTER were sent for sampling.
