Recap by phillip woo

Excellent Proposal quickened nicely from towards the rear to take control 60m out for a fourth win from five starts this term. He was able to brush off a flat effort last start following a break and looks a solid Derby hope. Punted late, Lucky Express came on well from behind midfield to finish a close second. He's very honest. Tourbillon Diamond should have gone close to winning if not held up for a run until the 200m after settling fifth last from a wide gate. He remains one to follow. Well-backed, Lucky Patch kept on reasonably well for fourth after a rare front-running role. It was another fine effort after four solid runs over a short trip. Shadow Hero came up one-paced over the final 150m after a surprising role stalking the speed. He might be better ridden held up for a run and is crying out for a longer trip. Favourite Sky Darci came up one-paced after a one-off trip in midfield. He ran flat but did have to carry more weight than his past two runs.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (371) - THE HONG KONG CLASSIC MILE - Class 4YO - 1600Meters

After being loaded, TSAR became fractious and got its left hind leg caught over the back gates.

TSAR was removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said that the horse was not fit to start.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of TSAR.

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

CELESTIAL POWER became fractious just prior to the gates being released and consequently missed the start.

Before being allowed to race again, CELESTIAL POWER will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial.

THE SUMMIT and SKY DARCI bumped on jumping.

From a wide barrier, RUSSIAN EMPEROR was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

LUCKY EXPRESS lost its left front plate in the early stages.

At the 1100 Metres, ENRICH DELIGHT went amiss and lost ground abruptly.

THE SUMMIT, which was following ENRICH DELIGHT, was checked in consequence.


After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that ENRICH DELIGHT had sustained an injury to the left front leg.

When being shifted across to obtain cover behind SHADOW HERO at the 950 Metres, BEAUTY JOY commenced to over-race and then was checked away from the heels of SHADOW HERO which was being steadied outside the leader LUCKY PATCH.

When being checked, BEAUTY JOY then improved to be racing inside the heels of SHADOW HERO and shifted in, resulting in MAXIMUS being crowded in onto the rail.

SKY DARCI, which was following, was forced to shift out away from the heels of BEAUTY JOY in consequence.

Approaching the 900 Metres, HEALTHY HAPPY was left racing wide and without cover.

TOURBILLON DIAMOND was held up for clear running from on straightening until approaching the 200 Metres.

THE SUMMIT had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

LUCKY EXPRESS was also held up for clear running until after passing the 300 Metres.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that although SKY DARCI was inconvenienced when BEAUTY JOY was checked on the first turn, SKY DARCI continued to travel well after this incident and he expected the horse to show its customary good acceleration when brought to the outside early in the Straight.

He said however that SKY DARCI was today very one-paced in the Straight and raced "flat?? He said he was unable to offer any explanation for the horse's failure to close off as it normally does.

A veterinary inspection of SKY DARCI immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that it was intended for SHADOW HERO to be ridden more prominently and it was hoped that this might be with cover behind the leaders.

He said the connections had also indicated to him that the option to lead was also open to him if he could obtain an uncontested lead.

He said SHADOW HERO jumped much better today and he rode the horse positively in the early stages and after the 1200 Metres he shifted over to follow LUCKY PATCH across when that horse assumed the lead.

He said SHADOW HERO travelled satisfactorily throughout the middle stages, however, was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to close off the race.

A veterinary inspection of SHADOW HERO immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea and was also found to be galloped on the right hind leg.

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

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

A veterinary inspection of CELESTIAL POWER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.


Samples were also taken from ENRICH DELIGHT.
