Recap by phillip woo

Happy Alumni got up 80m out for a nice win after jumping well to sit handy from gate two. He's always promised and the stable change to David Hayes has worked the oracle. Scores Of Fun came on strongly near the outside to get up in the last stride to finish level for second after a patient ride second from the rear. He relished a return to the Valley. Newcomer Capital Star caught a second wind after looking gone rounding the final bend to get up level for the Quinella spot. He'll certainly come on for this run. Hinchinlove kept on gamely to just miss the placings after a tough run pressing the pace three deep from a wide gate. It was his best run in a while. Favourite The Runner had his chance following a speed-chasing run. He's likely on his mark. Bright Kid made progress late without menacing from the rear of the field. He prefers the longer straight at Sha Tin. Flying Bonus was yielding ground 100m out after getting his own way in front. He's limited.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (344) - BEGONIA HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

SUNSHINE SUPREME shifted out and made contact with MIG ENERGY at the start and then lost ground when momentarily tightened for room between MIG ENERGY and GOOD BEAUTY.

Soon after the start, SCORES OF FUN was crowded for room between THE RUNNER which shifted out slightly and FLYING BONUS which shifted in after beginning awkwardly.

This resulted in SCORES OF FUN settling back in the field.

HAPPY ALUMNI got its head up and raced ungenerously rounding the turn near the 1000 Metres.

Making the turn after the 1000 Metres, THE RUNNER commenced to race ungenerously, got its head up and shifted out abruptly, hampering MOMENTUM GALAXY and forcing HINCHINLOVE and SHOUSON wider.

For some distance rounding the Home Turn, SUNSHINE SUPREME was awkwardly placed behind MIG ENERGY.

SUNSHINE SUPREME was then held up for clear running from on straightening until near the 200 Metres where it improved into tight running between SHOUSON and MOMENTUM GALAXY.

After passing the 200 Metres, SUNSHINE SUPREME was momentarily crowded for room between SHOUSON and MOMENTUM GALAXY which lay in.

As a result of contact with SUNSHINE SUPREME, MOMENTUM GALAXY then shifted out, made contact with SCORES OF FUN and consequently became unbalanced.

After being tested for a short distance, SUNSHINE SUPREME was again held up over the final 100 Metres and was unable to be tested.

Passing the 50 Metres, MOMENTUM GALAXY was steadied away from the heels of SCORES OF FUN (A Badel) which shifted in.

A Badel was reprimanded and told to ensure that he makes more of an effort to keep his mounts straight.

Throughout the race, HINCHINLOVE and SHOUSON travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that CAPITAL STAR, which was having its first race start in Hong Kong tonight, was reluctant to hold its position inside HAPPY ALUMNI along the Back Straight which resulted in HAPPY ALUMNI assuming the position in front of CAPITAL STAR after the 800 Metres.

He said for some distance after the 600 Metres he rode CAPITAL STAR along to maintain its position behind HAPPY ALUMNI, however, the horse was very hesitant when racing inside other runners and consequently lost ground.

He said immediately upon straightening he was able to place CAPITAL STAR under pressure and the horse closed off the race well.

He added due to the horse's relative inexperience, it was not able to maintain its prominent position through the middle stages of the race due to its reluctance to race inside other horses.

A veterinary inspection of SHOUSON and MOMENTUM GALAXY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

THE RUNNER, HAPPY ALUMNI, SCORES OF FUN and CAPITAL STAR were sent for sampling.
