Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Hercules shot clear after hitting the front 150m out following a one-off run better than midfield for a maiden win at his 16th start. He appears to have turned the corner. Lucky Quality ran on well from midfield to fill the Quinella spot but was no match for the winner. He's been quite honest and can bob up at any moment. Veteran Jade Theatre ran on well from towards the rear to fill a placing with money for him late. He is well rated. Incanto Prepared ran on steadily from behind midfield to nearly place. It was a pleasing run over an unsuitable trip. Ambitious Heart made some ground without menacing after a patient ride fourth from the rear. It wasn't a bad run after appearing from his track work to have needed this run. Hin Yuen Bis was stopping 100m out after clearing Very Rich Man to lead from a wide gate. He's shown progress in his three starts. Nordic Warrior wasn't beaten too far after travelling last following a tardy break.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (34) - PO LAM HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

NORDIC WARRIOR was slow to begin.

LUCKY QUALITY and INCANTO PREPARED bumped at the start and again a short distance after the start, resulting in INCANTO PREPARED becoming unbalanced.

From the outside barrier, MANNA FROM HEAVEN was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After travelling a short distance, VICTORY IN HAND got its head on the side, shifted in and bumped HERCULES.

VICTORY IN HAND then shifted out abruptly when being corrected.

Despite being ridden along for some distance in the early stages, JADE THEATRE failed to muster speed.

Making the turn near the 950 Metres, SUNNY SMILE got its head on the side and lay out towards the heels of HERCULES.

Passing the 800 Metres, SPACE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of VERY RICH MAN.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, HERCULES raced tight outside SPACE which shifted out when continuing to be awkwardly placed behind VERY RICH MAN.

SPACE was then steadied away from VERY RICH MAN near the 550 Metres when unable to improve outside that horse.

As SUNNY SMILE was giving ground at the 350 Metres, it became unbalanced, shifted in and bumped JADE THEATRE.

SUNNY SMILE continued to give ground and finished tailed out.

A veterinary inspection of SUNNY SMILE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of SUNNY SMILE was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, SUNNY SMILE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Passing the 300 Metres, MANNA FROM HEAVEN raced tight outside INCANTO PREPARED which got its head on the side and shifted out.

After the race, K Teetan stated that he placed VICTORY IN HAND under pressure before the Home Turn as it was not travelling well.

He said after being placed under pressure, VICTORY IN HAND then weakened and was disappointing with the blinkers applied.

A veterinary inspection of VICTORY IN HAND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Also after the race, A Badel reported that NORDIC WARRIOR was always off the bridle due to the good tempo.

He said because NORDIC WARRIOR was never able to travel comfortably, in his opinion, this accounted for the horse's failure to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of NORDIC WARRIOR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of SPACE immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

HERCULES and LUCKY QUALITY were sent for sampling.
