Recap by phillip woo

Precise Express came from near last along the inside to grab victory passing the 100m after being ridden for luck from a wide gate. It was an unexpected result at his fourth start. Easy Go Easy Win found one too good after briefly finding the front near the 100m tracking the leader Ever Laugh in the run. He relished a return to Class Three. Plunged late Ever Laugh kept on reasonably well after going forward three-deep to lead 1,200m from a tricky gate. Class Three is tough for him but he is always a chance over the 1,600m. Red Elysees stayed on all right from midfield to fill the frame. He's an honest type but is another who has trouble winning at this level. Favourite Decisive Action came up onepaced after settling worse than midfield on the fence. Delightful Laos' move down the outside from towards the rear ended 150m out. The switch to the Sha Tin 1,600m backfired after making a good impression in his three runs over the Valley 1,650m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (787) - SPORTSMANSHIP 1600M HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600Meters

BIG BROOK was withdrawn on 29.6.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (respiratory infection).

Before being allowed to race again, BIG BROOK will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

DELIGHTFUL LAOS began only fairly and then in the early stages was shifted across behind runners.

CHEERFUL LEADER began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped PRECISE EXPRESS.

After this, PRECISE EXPRESS was shifted across behind runners to obtain a position closer to the rail.

Shortly after the start, WIND GLIDER shifted out and made contact with RED ELYSEES.

Also shortly after the start, JOLLY HONOUR and DECISIVE ACTION bumped.

DECISIVE ACTION consequently became unbalanced, shifted out and bumped KIRAM which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of EVER LAUGH.

From a wide barrier, EVERYONE'S JOY was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

After the 1300 Metres, DECISIVE ACTION travelled keenly and got its head up when awkwardly placed behind RED ELYSEES.

Near the 900 Metres, KIRAM was left racing wide and without cover.

Rounding the Home Turn, CHEERFUL LEADER and RED ELYSEES raced tight as RED ELYSEES shifted to the outside of KIRAM to obtain clear running.

WIND GLIDER had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Near the 400 Metres, PRECISE EXPRESS was shifted to the inside of EASY GO EASY WIN after being disappointed for running between that horse and DECISIVE ACTION which shifted in.

Passing the 300 Metres, KIRAM, which was giving ground, was momentarily steadied away from the heels of JOLLY HONOUR which was taken out by EVER LAUGH.

Passing the 200 Metres, EASY GO EASY WIN shifted out, requiring its rider, Apprentice C L Chau, to stop riding and straighten his mount.

After correcting EASY GO EASY WIN, Apprentice Chau dropped his whip.

EASY GO EASY WIN then lay out over the concluding stages.

Close to the finishing line, CHEERFUL LEADER was steadied away from the heels of EVER LAUGH (Apprentice C Wong) which shifted out under pressure.

Apprentice Wong was advised to exercise more care.

After the race, K Teetan stated that he was happy with the way that DELIGHTFUL LAOS travelled in the early and middle stages, however, the horse was not able to quicken rounding the Home Turn with CHEERFUL LEADER, a horse he had been following.

He said when placed under pressure in the Straight, DELIGHTFUL LAOS finished off the race only one-paced.

A veterinary inspection of DELIGHTFUL LAOS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

When questioned regarding the performance of DECISIVE ACTION, J Moreira stated that although his mount was inclined to travel keenly in the early stages, DECISIVE ACTION relaxed nicely after the 1200 Metres and then travelled well.

He said he anticipated that the horse would close off the race strongly when placed under pressure, however, after obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight did not quicken when asked and then was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of DECISIVE ACTION immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

CHEERFUL LEADER, PRECISE EXPRESS and EASY GO EASY WIN were sent for sampling.
