Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Beauty Angel found the gaps when needed to take control 150m out following a handy run on the fence. He came right late last season and appears to have the tools to head higher. Red Elysees found one too good after hitting the front 250m out following a prominent run from a wide gate. He relished the downgrade and has good first-up form. Veteran Rule Thee rallied nicely to place after settling second last following a troubled start in his first start under trainer Caspar Fownes. He is well-rated off his current mark. Go Ballistic stayed on all right following a one-off run in midfield. He's honest but limited. Bundle Of Energy just failed to get up for fourth following a patient ride third from the rear. He's always just a minor chance at this level. Shadow Breaker was gone 300m out after an indecisive ride by claimer Jerry Chau Chun-lok, who was caught deep from a wide gate until rushing forward to lead 1,200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (51) - SOUTH BAY HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Meters

HAR HAR HEART was slow to begin.

RULE THEE began only fairly and then was crowded for room between PRETTY BAUHINIA which shifted in marginally and GO BALLISTIC which shifted out.

In this incident, GO BALLISTIC became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by RULE THEE.

BULLISH GLORY was shifted across behind runners in the early stages to obtain cover.

After travelling a short distance, DIONYSUS COLLIN raced tight inside BUNDLE OF ENERGY which lay in.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, VILLA FIONN, which was travelling keenly, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GO BALLISTIC.

After this, VILLA FIONN continued to be awkwardly placed behind GO BALLISTIC and approaching the 1300 Metres lay in, resulting in DIONYSUS COLLIN being crowded for room.

VILLA FIONN was then shifted out abruptly to relieve the tightening to DIONYSUS COLLIN.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, VILLA FIONN was again awkwardly placed behind GO BALLISTIC.

Passing the 650 Metres, VILLA FIONN raced tight outside DIONYSUS COLLIN which commenced to improve to the outside of GO BALLISTIC.

Passing the 500 Metres, DIONYSUS COLLIN then raced in restricted room between VILLA FIONN and GO BALLISTIC which improved to the outside of RED ELYSEES.

At the entrance to the Straight, RULE THEE was momentarily awkwardly placed behind BEAUTY ANGEL when disappointed for running between that horse and PRESIDENT STAR.

Approaching the 200 Metres, RULE THEE got its head on the side and raced tight inside the hindquarters of SHADOW BREAKER.

For the majority of the race, PRETTY BAUHINIA travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of PRETTY BAUHINIA immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer' which had previously been reported.

The performance of PRETTY BAUHINIA, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

When questioned, K Teetan stated that after being able to obtain a good position on GO BALLISTIC in the middle stages, he shifted his mount to the outside of RED ELYSEES near the 500 Metres due to the horse being one-paced and having a relatively light weight.

He said GO BALLISTIC was under heavy pressure rounding the Home Turn and he rode the horse aggressively in the early part of the Straight, however, GO BALLISTIC, after showing a limited dash rounding the Home Turn, commenced to finish off the race one-paced.

He added after using the whip in the right hand in the early part of the Straight, he changed the whip over into his left hand in an attempt to have the horse respond better, however, GO BALLISTIC was not finishing off the race as both RULE THEE and BUNDLE OF ENERGY were making ground on GO BALLISTIC approaching the 100 Metres.

He added as GO BALLISTIC was not finishing off the race when being ridden in this manner, he put the whip away and rode the horse out hands and heels to the end of the race.

After the race, Apprentice C L Chau stated that although it took SHADOW BREAKER some time to reach the lead, he did not have to make too much use of the horse to obtain a forward position.

He said after crossing PRESIDENT STAR to race in the lead after the 1200 Metres, SHADOW BREAKER travelled comfortably and he anticipated that the horse would finish off the race well.

He said however that after coming under pressure rounding the Home Turn, SHADOW BREAKER did not quicken as he expected and then was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of SHADOW BREAKER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Also after the race, C Y Ho stated that after racing tight inside VILLA FIONN approaching the 1300 Metres, DIONYSUS COLLIN would not settle and near the 1000 Metres got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of BEAUTY ANGEL.

He said after this DIONYSUS COLLIN did not travel comfortably and then after being placed under pressure in the Straight was disappointing in its failure to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of DIONYSUS COLLIN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BEAUTY ANGEL and RED ELYSEES were sent for sampling.
