Recap by phillip woo

Old-timer Ultimate Glory quickened nicely to win going away 150m out following a midfield run on the fence. There wasn't much depth to the race and the booking of Zac Purton from a good gate was all that was needed. Sunshine Universe just held on for second after clearing to lead from a wide gate. It was another honest effort. Fantastic Show came from near last to snatch a placing. He's a decent sort if he can stay sound. Favourite Fun Times just lost out in the dash to the wire for a placing following racing one off behind midfield. He might be on or near his mark. Plunged late Sonic Fighter came up onepaced travelling better than midfield. He needed the run. Flying Godspell came up flat over the last 100m after tracking the leader. Central Express made only a mild bid from behind midfield on the fence. He's still learning. Blazing Partners never came on after making his run third from the rear.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (173) - KOWLOON TSAI PARK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Meters

CENTRAL EXPRESS shifted out at the start and bumped FUN TIMES.

SMART ROCKET began only fairly and was bumped by FLYING GODSPELL which shifted out.

THE FULL BLOOM shifted in at the start and made contact with VIGOR CHAMP.

SPEEDY DRAGON and BLAZING PARTNERS, which were being steadied to obtain cover, raced in restricted room shortly after the start between FANTASTIC SHOW and SUNSHINE UNIVERSE which shifted in.

After this, when being steadied to obtain cover, BLAZING PARTNERS got its head up on a number of occasions.

CHAPARRAL STAR was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Approaching the 1200 Metres, BLAZING PARTNERS again got its head up on a number of occasions when momentarily steadied away from the heels of GOD OF DRAGON which was being shifted across to obtain cover behind THE FULL BLOOM.

GOD OF DRAGON then got its head on the side and shifted in abruptly after the 1200 Metres.

After the 900 Metres, SMART ROCKET was left racing wide and without cover.

GOD OF DRAGON was held up for a run in the early part of the Straight and near the 300 Metres was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SMART ROCKET.

GOD OF DRAGON was shifted to the inside of SMART ROCKET and FUN TIMES after the 300 Metres and then shifted in further to the inside of VIGOR CHAMP in an attempt to obtain clear running.

GOD OF DRAGON was then steadied passing the 200 Metres when disappointed for running between CHAPARRAL STAR and VIGOR CHAMP which shifted in marginally.

FUN TIMES was held up for clear running until after the 300 Metres.

Near the 150 Metres, FLYING GODSPELL shifted out under pressure, requiring its rider to stop riding and straighten the horse.

After the race, H T Mo stated that he was instructed to obtain about a midfield position with cover on THE FULL BLOOM.

He said after attempting to obtain this position in the early stages, THE FULL BLOOM was left racing wide and without cover after the 1200 Metres.

He said in order to prevent covering unnecessary ground, he elected to allow THE FULL BLOOM to improve its position to race outside the lead after the 900 Metres.

When questioned regarding the performance of BLAZING PARTNERS, U Rispoli stated that his mount travelled keenly when being steadied in the early stages to obtain cover from a wide barrier.

He said, unlike at its last start in a lower grade, BLAZING PARTNERS was not able to quicken in today's race and after being shifted to the outside of runners in the early part of the Straight was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race.

He added having regard to BLAZING PARTNERS' performance today, he was of the view that the horse may not have handled the step-up in grade to Class 4.

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

The performance of BLAZING PARTNERS, a last start winner, was considered unacceptable.

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

A veterinary inspection of GOD OF DRAGON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FUN TIMES, ULTIMATE GLORY and SUNSHINE UNIVERSE were sent for sampling.
