Recap by phillip woo

My Ally just had enough left in the tank after a perfectly rated performance in front under Alfred Chan Ka-hei. The difference in the end was the claimer's 10-pound allowance. Early favourite Mongolian Legend finished strongly down the outside after settling second last from an awkward gate. It was a solid effort on the back of a slow pace. It was a terrific debut by the The Rock, who was closing with every stride to finish a close third after a deep run with cover fourth from the rear. Follow Me kept on a non-threatening fourth following a three-deep run with cover in midfield. He's finding it harder carrying top weight in his past three starts following a win. Beauty Loyal only held his ground chasing the speed one off from a wide gate. He rarely produces a bad run over this trip but struggles to win. Reel Bizzy produced only a mild bid following a rails run in midfield. Charizard ran on without menacing following a patient ride third from the back.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (349) - GOOD BA BA HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Meters

REEL BIZZY stumbled at the start.

FOLLOW ME shifted out at the start and bumped CHARIZARD which in turn shifted out and bumped TOTAL POWER.

From wide barriers, GIFT OF LIFELINE and NATURAL WINNER were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

MONGOLIAN KING was also shifted across to obtain cover shortly after the start.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, THE DRIVE momentarily raced tight inside LADY FIRST which, when racing wide, was allowed to improve its position.

Approaching and passing the 900 Metres, SOLOMON'S BAY, which was travelling keenly, was awkwardly placed behind TOTAL POWER.

SOLOMON'S BAY continued to travel keenly and making the turn after the 900 Metres shifted out and bumped FOLLOW ME.

SOLOMON'S BAY was then checked away from the heels of TOTAL POWER near the 750 Metres, clipped the heels of that horse and stumbled.

GIFT OF LIFELINE, which was racing to the inside of SOLOMON'S BAY at this stage, was inconvenienced.

After the 900 Metres, THE DRIVE was left racing wide and without cover.

Rounding the Home Turn, THE ROCK was awkwardly placed behind FOLLOW ME which shifted to the outside of THE DRIVE.

At the 350 Metres, THE ROCK was shifted out away from the heels of FOLLOW ME which was taken out by THE DRIVE which, after being brushed by TOTAL POWER, then got its head on the side and shifted out away from that horse.

At the 200 Metres, SOLOMON'S BAY was steadied when crowded for room between REEL BIZZY and TOTAL POWER, both of which shifted marginally.

When questioned regarding the performance of AMAZING KIWI, K Teetan stated that it was felt that AMAZING KIWI would be suited by the return to Sha Tin today and that having drawn the inside barrier the horse would obtain a nice run behind the anticipated leader MY ALLY.

He said after obtaining this position AMAZING KIWI travelled well albeit on occasions in the middle stages it was inclined to travel too keenly.

He said when MY ALLY quickened at the entrance to the Straight AMAZING KIWI was not able to show the same turn of foot as that horse and did not quicken as it had for him in the past, particularly when the horse raced first up at Sha Tin.

He added AMAZING KIWI came under heavy pressure after the 400 Metres and then was very disappointing in the manner in which it weakened over the concluding stages.

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

The performance of AMAZING KIWI, favourite for today's race and which finished at the rear, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, AMAZING KIWI 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 TOTAL POWER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

AMAZING KIWI, MY ALLY and MONGOLIAN KING were sent for sampling.
