Recap by phillip woo

Island Shine just out-battled Winning Method by a lip after drawing level with a move from just worse than midfield to earn a first win at his seventh start. Winning Method did everything right but get the win after surging to the front 100m out travelling one off the fence fore of midfield. Favourite Victory Power stuck on third best but had every chance following a prominent run on the fence. He's as honest as the day is long but isn't a prolific winner. Shamport came from near last and widest out to fill the frame. It was a good run despite a return to Class Three following back-to-back wins. Mig Energy knocked up 100m out after working to the lead 200m out tracking the speed in third. Superb Daddy made headway late from near last following a slow start. He'll be one to keep safe with Class Four looming large. Confucius Day faltered to finish last after going too fast in front stepping into Class Three off a light weight.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (581) - CYPRESS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

MERIDIAN GENIUS was withdrawn on 14.4.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter AMAZING KNIGHT (J Moreira).

Before being allowed to race again, MERIDIAN GENIUS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

FANTASTIC FEELING shifted out at the start and bumped WINNING METHOD which became unbalanced and shifted out further, resulting in AMAZING KNIGHT being hampered.

SUPERB DADDY began only fairly and from a wide barrier was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

From a wide barrier, HINCHINLOVE was also steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runner to obtain cover.

ISLAND SHINE lost its left front plate in the early stages.

Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, MIG ENERGY was steadied in attempt to obtain cover behind TELECOM PUMA.

MIG ENERGY then travelled keenly and was unable to obtain cover behind TELECOM PUMA due to WINNING METHOD improving its position.

MIG ENERGY was consequently allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead passing the 700 Metres.

Passing the 200 Metres, MIG ENERGY shifted out under pressure and raced tight with WINNING METHOD.

MIG ENERGY and WINNING METHOD then bumped passing the 150 Metres, resulting in WINNING METHOD becoming unbalanced, shifting in and inconveniencing MIG ENERGY approaching the 100 Metres.

When questioned, C Schofield stated that he was instructed to ride G UNIT more quietly in tonight's race than it had previously been the case as G UNIT had not been finishing off its most recent races when ridden for speed.

He said in accordance with his instructions he steadied G UNIT in the early stages and making the turn at the 1000 Metres was able to obtain a trailing position behind the eventual winner ISLAND SHINE.

He said G UNIT travelled fairly throughout the race and after being shifted to the outside of runners at the entrance to the Straight finished off the race satisfactorily.

The Stewards will interview Mr J Moore, the trainer of G UNIT, at the Sha Tin racemeeting to be conducted on Sunday, 19 April 2020 regarding this matter.

After the race, Apprentice C Wong stated that he was initially able to obtain an outright lead on CONFUCIUS DAY, however, when MIG ENERGY improved its position to be racing outside CONFUCIUS DAY passing the 700 Metres, his mount came off the bridle and then, being up in grade tonight, did not finish off its race.

A veterinary inspection of CONFUCIUS DAY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of AMAZING KNIGHT and TELECOM PUMA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

VICTORY POWER, ISLAND SHINE and WINNING METHOD were sent for sampling.
