Recap by phillip woo

Ka Ying Star just held off a couple of unlucky runners after getting a relatively easy time in front. He had things run to suit and deserved the win after producing some good runs against the best all season long. Southern Legend kept plugging away to make it close on the wire despite getting posted deep at times in a prominent spot carrying top weight. It was a solid run in defeat. Fast Most Furious rallied strongly to finish a close third after getting held up for a run until peeling out 150m out following a patient ride third from the rear. General's Delight stayed on well following a prominent run but was no match for the top pair. Nevertheless, it was a solid effort despite being poorly handicapped. Punted late Preciousship was all dressed up with nowhere to go after a midfield run on the fence. He should have made it interesting on the wire.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (707) - THE LION ROCK TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class G3 - 1600Meters

HARMONY VICTORY began only fairly and then was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

From a wide barrier, RATTAN was steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Approaching the 1500 Metres, FAST MOST FURIOUS was steadied when crowded for room between PRECIOUSSHIP and DANCES WITH DRAGON (M L Yeung) which shifted in.

M L Yeung was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room for runners to his inside in similar circumstances.

Near the 1350 Metres, TIME TO CELEBRATE momentarily raced in restricted room inside KA YING STAR.

Then passing the 1200 Metres, TIME TO CELEBRATE was steadied away from the heels of KA YING STAR (C Schofield) which shifted in when not properly clear.

C Schofield was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he provides sufficient clearance in similar circumstances.

Near the 1150 Metres, BEAUTY LEGACY got its head up when awkwardly placed behind SOUTHERN LEGEND.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, SOUTHERN LEGEND was taken wider by TIME TO CELEBRATE which shifted out away from the heels of KA YING STAR.

Passing the 1000 Metres, PRECIOUSSHIP raced tight inside BEAUTY LEGACY.

After the 900 Metres, ELUSIVE STATE was left racing wide and without cover.

At the entrance to the Straight, RATTAN raced tight between HARMONY VICTORY and ELUSIVE STATE which shifted out.

FAST MOST FURIOUS (M F Poon) was held up for a run from the 250 Metres until near the 150 Metres at which stage it shifted out to obtain clear running and in doing so caused BEAUTY LEGACY to be hampered.

M F Poon was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is properly clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

PRECIOUSSHIP had some difficulty obtaining clear running approaching and passing the 200 Metres.

Approaching the 100 Metres, M Chadwick (PRECIOUSSHIP) dropped his whip.

Close to the finishing line, FAST MOST FURIOUS and SOUTHERN LEGEND raced tight.

He said BEAUTY LEGACY travelled too strongly and was inclined to lay in in the early and middle stages.

He said although BEAUTY LEGACY was hampered near the 150 Metres, the horse was well beaten at this stage.

He said after having to steady away from the heels of FAST MOST FURIOUS, BEAUTY LEGACY then hung in over the concluding stages.
