Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied Gala Night held off the surge of Bullish Glory to win in a class record time after hitting the front 80m out following a perfect ride in the box-seat. It was his third victory this season and there's likely more upside to come from the three-year-old. Bullish Glory just failed to reel in the winner after coming off the fence rounding the final bend following a midfield run. Salto Olimpico led from an outside gate at the 1,950m, shook off a challenge by Mister Monte 600m out and weakened last 100m after establishing a two-length lead at the 250m. Favourite Good Days ran on steadily from behind midfield on the fence to just miss a placing. He's more effective at Sha Tin nowadays. Exaltation ran on all right after a one-off run better than midfield. He's showing some life signs in recent runs. Mister Monte wasn't beaten too far in the end after striding forward threedeep in midfield to sit second 1,350m out before challenging for the front 600m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (612) - TAI HANG HANDICAP - Class 4 - 2200Meters

HAPPY ROCKY began only fairly, shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of GOOD DAYS.

HAPPY ROCKY then lost ground when crowded for room between EXALTATION and GOOD DAYS which became unbalanced when taken out by GALA NIGHT.

YOU HAVE MY WORD and SALTO OLIMPICO bumped at the start.

After this, YOU HAVE MY WORD was steadied to obtain cover.

VICTORY VISION was crowded for room shortly after the start between MISTER MONTE and DRAGON COMMANDER, both of which shifted ground.

Then, from the outside barriers, VICTORY VISION and DRAGON COMMANDER were steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Passing the 2000 Metres, BULLISH GLORY got its head up when awkwardly placed behind GALA NIGHT.

For some distance approaching the 1800 Metres, CROWN AVENUE got its head up when awkwardly placed behind EXALTATION.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, CROWN AVENUE was steadied away from the heels of EXALTATION which was also steadied as GIANT TURTLE was eased to obtain cover behind MISTER MONTE.

Near the 850 Metres, CROWN AVENUE was checked away from the heels of EXALTATION.

Passing the 500 Metres, EXALTATION and GOOD DAYS raced tight.

At the 300 Metres, DRAGON COMMANDER became awkward on the heels of HAPPY ROCKY (M L Yeung) when being directed to the inside of that horse which shifted out.

M L Yeung was reprimanded and told to exercise due care when riding his mounts out, particularly rounding a turn.

Near the 250 Metres, HAPPY ROCKY shifted out and inconvenienced CROWN AVENUE.

CROWN AVENUE and HAPPY ROCKY then raced tight until passing the 200 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of GIANT TURTLE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GOOD DAYS, GALA NIGHT and BULLISH GLORY were sent for sampling.
