Recap by phillip woo

Harmony Victory quickened nicely to grab victory in deep stretch when a gap finally opened up between runners 150m out following a handy run on the fence. Punted late Hezthewonforus ran on well to snatch second after getting shuffled back to have three in front of him after stalking the leader early on. Time To Celebrate circled the field 1,000m to sit three deep in third at the 700m, poked his head in front 150m out and found a couple too good in the late stages. Fast Most Furious ran on steadily to just miss a placing following a one-off run in midfield. The longer Sha Tin straight suits him better. Happy Dragon came up one-paced over the last 100m out after looming a chance down the outside mid-stretch following a deep run in midfield. He tends to mix his form. Simply Brilliant was badly held up for a run until the final 100m after settling midfield on the fence following a slow start. He should have finished closer.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (449) - SHAN KWONG HANDICAP - Class 1 - 1650Meters

SIMPLY BRILLIANT was bumped on jumping by HAPPY DRAGON which was taken in by TIME TO CELEBRATE.

From wide barriers, GREEN LUCK and HARMONY HERO were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, HAPPY DRAGON was awkwardly placed behind FAST MOST FURIOUS.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, TIME TO CELEBRATE and GREEN LUCK raced tight as TIME TO CELEBRATE attempted to shift in to obtain cover.

Then after the 1300 Metres, TIME TO CELEBRATE shifted in and bumped GREEN LUCK.

TIME TO CELEBRATE then shifted out to relieve the tightening to GREEN LUCK and consequently was left racing three wide.

TIME TO CELEBRATE improved its position after the 1200 Metres, however, after the 800 Metres was left racing without cover.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, HARMONY VICTORY raced tight inside HEZTHEWONFORUS which shifted in marginally.

Passing the 300 Metres, HARMONY VICTORY was very awkwardly placed close to the heels of INSAYSHABLE when held up for a run behind that horse.

SIMPLY BRILLIANT, which was following HARMONY VICTORY, was directed out away from the heels of that horse near the 250 Metres after also being held up for clear running.

HARMONY VICTORY was then unable to obtain clear running until near the 200 Metres.

SIMPLY BRILLIANT was held up for clear running from passing the 150 Metres and consequently was not able to be tested until the concluding stages.

Near the 50 Metres, ENCOURAGING was steadied when tightened for room between FAST MOST FURIOUS and TIME TO CELEBRATE which shifted out.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that he was instructed to obtain a trailing positon if possible on ENCOURAGING as the horse was successful over the course and distance last season when ridden in this manner.

He said if he was not able to obtain cover, he should then allow his mount to improve into the lead, however, the overriding instruction was for the horse to be positioned behind the leaders if possible.

He said in the early stages he was able to obtain a position one horse off the rail behind HEZTHEWONFORUS which raced outside the lead.

A veterinary inspection of ENCOURAGING, GOOD STANDING and GREEN LUCK immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
