Recap by phillip woo

Incanto Prepared did not leave the fence after making his run fourth from the rear to grab a maiden win at his 13th start. He had been knocking on the door. Punted late, Nunchuks finished strongly down the outside from the rear of the field to snatch second on the wire from Universal Go Go. It was a fine effort with a return to Class Four following a mile win at Sha Tin. Late-fancied Universal Go Go took Tiger Glare on for the lead 600m out, built a length margin rounding the final bend and found a couple too good in the dying stages. Lady First ran on well to fill the frame after biding his time third last from a wide gate. He keeps promising but has yet to deliver. Favourite Zhan Jiang Rocks didn't fire after a one-off run better than midfield. He ran flat after opening the campaign with a rallying third. Melbourne Hall came up one-paced following a midfield run on the fence. He can be a bit unpredictable at times.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (123) - TIN WAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Meters

On arrival at the Start, INCANTO PREPARED, which kicked a rail when leaving the Parade Ring, was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said the hors was suitable to race.

BLOOMING SPIRIT shifted out at the start and bumped UNIVERSAL GO GO which was taken out onto MELBOURNE HALL which was crowded onto the hindquarters of SHADOW BREAKER.

From wide barriers, BIG BANG BONG, NUNCHUKS and INCANTO PREPARED were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After being ridden along in the early stages from the outside barrier to take up a forward position, LADY FIRST was steadied after the 1600 Metres to obtain cover.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, MELBOURNE HALL momentarily raced tight inside ZHAN JIANG ROCKS which was racing tight inside BLOOMING SPIRIT which raced wide and without cover throughout.

Passing the 900 Metres, ZHAN JIANG ROCKS raced tight inside BLOOMING SPIRIT which shifted in.

After the 600 Metres, INCANTO PREPARED lay in and brushed the running rail.

Rounding the Home Turn, STARLIT KNIGHT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of TIGER GLARE.

Near the 250 Metres, BIG BANG BONG was shifted in abruptly away from the heels of TIGER GLARE which was giving ground.

Over the concluding stages, BIG BANG BONG raced in restricted room inside STARLIT KNIGHT.

Mr L Ho, the trainer of TIGER GLARE, reported that from the horse's inside barrier and with a very light weight, he instructed H T Mo to take up a more forward position tonight than had been the case, particularly given the horse was only having its second start at the distance.

A Badel stated that he was asked not to ride SHADOW BREAKER along in the early stages to take up a forward position.

He said it was explained to him by Mr K H Ting, the trainer of SHADOW BREAKER, that were the horse to be ridden along to obtain a forward position, it may over-race and not be able to finish off the race.

He said it was further explained to him that if he was able to obtain the lead without having to ride his mount along, this was also acceptable.

He added that after beginning positively, a number of horses drawn more favourably than SHADOW BREAKER were ridden to obtain a forward position.

He said he therefore elected to shift across to race behind BLOOMING SPIRIT passing the winning post on the first occasion.

He said after the 1400 Metres he anticipated that ZHAN JIANG ROCKS would shift across to race on the rail which would allow him to obtain a trailing position behind BLOOMING SPIRIT one horse off the rail.

He said when ZHAN JIANG ROCKS maintained its position one horse off the rail, SHADOW BREAKER was left racing in a three wide position with cover behind BLOOMING SPIRIT.

He said the pace of the race was only fair after the 1000 Metres and therefore he elected, rather than fight SHADOW BREAKER if the pace continued to be slow, to allow the horse to slowly improve its position forward of BLOOMING SPIRIT.

He added when UNIVERSAL GO GO and TIGER GLARE maintained their position in the lead, this allowed SHADOW BREAKER the opportunity to obtain a trailing position behind UNIVERSAL GO GO passing the 600 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of MELBOURNE HALL and STARLIT KNIGHT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
