Recap by phillip woo

Outsider Kwaichung Brothers snuck up along the fence after gaining a clear run 200m out to just edge long-shot Shanghai Rusky by a lip for the win. He was performing off a career low in the ratings. Shanghai Rusky just failed to salute after a box-seat run. It was his best run to date at his second run in the grade with the claim well utilised. Seize The Spirit closed well near the outside from towards the rear to finish a close third carrying top weight. Who's Horse was swamped in deep stretch after leading from a wide gate. He relished the downgrade. Fire And Gold ran on late down the outside after making his run fourth from the back. He can produce an odd good run now and then. Plunged late Flying Monkey had his chance after stalking the speed from a wide gate but knocked up 100m out. He might not be far off a bottom.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (700) - TSZ WAN SHAN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Meters

DRAGON BOLT began very awkwardly and then became badly unbalanced in its action a short distance after the start and attempted to buck for some distance.

This resulted in DRAGON BOLT being retired out of the race in the early stages.

Before being permitted to race again, DRAGON BOLT will be required to satisfactorily undergo a barrier trial carrying a raceday saddle and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of DRAGON BOLT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BLINK OF A SECOND began awkwardly.

YEE CHEONG LUCKY shifted out at the start, resulting in FORTUNE BUDDY being crowded onto GALAXY RACER which became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by FORTUNE BUDDY.

After this, GALAXY RACER was steadied and shifted across behind runners, however, for the majority of the race travelled wide and without cover.

MOTHER WISHES shifted out at the start and bumped SEIZE THE SPIRIT.

From a wide barrier, FIRE AND GOLD was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Passing the 1100 Metres, MOTHER WISHES shifted in when being steadied away from the heels of FLYING MONKEY, resulting in MONEY MARSHAL being crowded for room and causing BLINK OF A SECOND to become unbalanced when bumped by MONEY MARSHAL Approaching the 900 Metres, MONEY MARSHAL, which was travelling keenly, got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of MOTHER WISHES.

Then making the turn after the 900 Metres, MONEY MARSHAL lay out.

Passing the 600 Metres, SEIZE THE SPIRIT raced tight between FIRE AND GOLD and SOLAR BILLION which improved into tight running between SEIZE THE SPIRIT and KWAICHUNG BROTHERS.

FLYING MONKEY lay out rounding the Home Turn.

In the early part of the Straight, GALAXY RACER got its head on the side and lay in under pressure.

Near the 300 Metres, YEE CHEONG LUCKY raced tight inside MOTHER WISHES.

At the 200 Metres, SOLAR BILLION was checked away from the heels of MOTHER WISHES which was giving ground.

This resulted in SOLAR BILLION then becoming awkwardly placed close to the heels of SEIZE THE SPIRIT for a short distance after the 200 Metres.

In the Straight, MONEY MARSHAL lay in under pressure.

B Shinn, the rider of BLINK OF A SECOND, was fined the sum of $5,000 for using the whip over the concluding stages on a horse out of contention.

When questioned, A Hamelin stated that he was instructed to ride SEIZE THE SPIRIT in about a midfield position.

He said after steadying his mount in the early stages to obtain cover when the race was being run at a good tempo, SEIZE THE SPIRIT was off the bridle and he had to ride his mount along for some distance after the 1200 Metres as it was getting too far out of its ground.

He said, despite being ridden along, SEIZE THE SPIRIT was reluctant to improve its position and travelled only fairly in the early stages.

He added he had to continue to ride his mount along in the middle stages and after being placed under pressure in the Straight SEIZE THE SPIRIT finished off the race strongly.

When questioned, K C Leung stated that he was instructed to ride MOTHER WISHES positively in the early stages and obtain a position in advance of midfield.

He said after riding MOTHER WISHES along in the early stages he had to make more use of the horse than was anticipated and avoid covering unnecessary ground.

He said after improving forward of MONEY MARSHAL near the 1000 Metres, MOTHER WISHES travelled only fairly in the middle stages before coming under pressure rounding the Home Turn.

He said after this MOTHER WISHES did not finish off the race.

Mr W Y So, the trainer of MOTHER WISHES, stated that as the horse is somewhat one-paced, he felt it would be in the best interests of the horse if it were able to be ridden in a more forward position having in mind that it was carrying 131 lbs today.

He said he did not want the horse getting too far out of its ground as being up in weight it may not be able to finish off the race as it had previously when carrying lighter weights.

He said it was initially his intention for the horse to be ridden in about a midfield position or slightly in advance of midfield, however, due to the circumstances of the race MOTHER WISHES was ridden more forward than had been intended.

He added it is his intention in the future to have MOTHER WISHES ridden in about a midfield position if the circumstances of the race allow.

A veterinary inspection of MOTHER WISHES immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of GALAXY RACER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GALAXY RACER, KWAICHUNG BROTHERS and SHANGHAI RUSKY were sent for sampling.
