Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Lucky Fun was too good after hitting the front 250m out following a speed-chasing run from a perfect draw. He had caught the eye last start at only his second start and there's clearly more to come from him. Newcomer Zone D ran on nicely to grab second 30m out after trailing the field for the opening 400m from a wide gate. Branding Power stayed on well for a placing despite racing greenly three-deep in midfield. He has ability but is still learning. Silvery Warrior ran on well from behind midfield to spice up the quartet. It was a nice debut effort here. Universal Crown made good ground late without menacing the top four after a patient ride third from the rear. He had shown flashes of potential last season. Brown-lamped Sunday Betting got going late when the race was all but over after settling second last from a wide draw. It was an improved effort following a gear change.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (326) - LAM TIN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

DIAMOND PIXIU was withdrawn on 8.1.21 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (fever) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter ZONE D.

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

STRATHMARTINE began only fairly.

MISTER ARM began awkwardly.

After being a little slow to begin, COMFORT LIFE was inconvenienced soon after the start by LUCKY FUN which shifted in.

BRANDING POWER and SILVERY WARRIOR made contact soon after the start.

From wide barriers, ZONE D and SUNDAY BETTING were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

When racing close to the heels of ON EXCEL STAR making the turn near the 900 Metres, BRANDING POWER got its head up and made the turn awkwardly.

After leaving the 900 Metres, ON EXCEL STAR was left racing wide and without cover.

Approaching the 800 Metres, LUCKY FUN got its head up when being steadied to allow MISTER ARM (H T Mo) to cross.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the racing manners of LUCKY FUN had largely contributed to the incident by over-reacting when steadied, H T Mo was nonetheless reprimanded for permitting his mount to shift in when not sufficiently clear of LUCKY FUN.

Rounding the Home Turn, UNIVERSAL CROWN was awkwardly placed outside the heels of ZONE D which was shifting out to obtain clear running and was then corrected at the entrance to the Straight to prevent causing interference to UNIVERSAL CROWN.

A veterinary inspection of COMFORT LIFE immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and an endoscopic examination also found it to have bled from both nostrils.

Before being allowed to race again, COMFORT LIFE will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of ON EXCEL STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LUCKY FUN and ZONE D were sent for sampling.
