Recap by phillip woo

Utopia Life kept on strongly after pinching a nice break turning for home two lengths on top from a tricky gate for an overdue win. It was a deserving win after seconds in three of four prior starts over this trip. Just Not Listening kept on a clear-cut second after a dream run on the leader's back. He has been building towards a win in recent runs. Little Bird repelled a challenge by Namjong Sings over the final 100m to hold third despite a wide and without cover run on the speed from an outside draw. Namjong Sings had every chance to at least get third after a prominent run with cover. He never runs a bad race but is limited. Favourite Flying Genius couldn't lift travelling handy on the fence after missing the kick. Highland Fortune ran on without menacing after making his run beyond midfield. Mega Heart came up one-paced after a wide and without cover run in midfield. He's had a lot of racing and appears from his past two starts.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (542) - CLEAR WATER BAY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

As the start was effected, FLYING GENIUS lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently was slow to begin.

After the race, Z Purton reported that as a result of missing the start, he had to ride FLYING GENIUS along in the early stages to make up lost ground and, in his opinion, the manner in which the horse began was the principal reason for its subsequent failure to finish off the race.

PACKING JOY shifted out abruptly at the start, resulting in HIGHLAND FORTUNE being badly crowded for room inside UTOPIA LIFE which resulted in HIGHLAND FORTUNE losing ground and UTOPIA LIFE becoming unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by HIGHLAND FORTUNE.

From a wide barrier, KING'S HORN was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

WIND N GRASS was steadied from a wide barrier in an attempt to obtain cover, however, throughout the race travelled wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 700 Metres, KING'S HORN got its head on the side and lay out.

Near the 450 Metres, WIND N GRASS was shifted out away from the heels of MEGA HEART which, when improving to the outside of NAMJONG SINGS, was taken out by that horse which shifted to the outside of LITTLE BIRD.

A veterinary inspection of WIND N GRASS and FLYING GENIUS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
