Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Stock Legend just overhauled Equaletta Blitz in the final few metres for the win after jumping nicely to track the speed one-off in third. He's really come into his own to win four of seven this season for trainer Francis Lui Kin-wai. Equaletta Blitz kept on gamely for second carrying top weight after getting bothered for the lead to his outside by Jazz Steed. He did everything but get the win. Transcendent came from last at the top of the straight to fill a placing. He was stepping off a career low in the ratings after debuting with a win off a mark of 80 last season. Well-backed Island Shine made a mild bid following a prominent run on the fence to cap the quartet. It was an improved performance from a better draw. Jazz Steed didn't have much to offer in the run to the wire after going forward from a wide gate to take on the leader. The change in tactics backfired. Harmony N Home came up one-paced when asked for an effort following a handy run with cover from gate two. He wasn't able to raise his game carrying five pounds more following a win.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (590) - CYPRESS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

After being loaded into the barriers, EQUALETTA BLITZ became fractious and lunged at the front gates, resulting in the gates opening.

EQUALETTA BLITZ then exited the front gates but was immediately pulled up and returned to the back of the barriers at which stage the horse was examined by the Veterinary Officer who, after the necessary consultations, said the horse was suitable to race.

Before being allowed to race again, EQUALETTA BLITZ will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

STRIVE FOR GLORY was slow to begin.

SICOMORO was crowded for room on jumping between MERIDIAN GENIUS which became unbalanced after being bumped by SICOMORO and STOCK LEGEND which shifted out.

JAZZ STEED shifted out on jumping and inconvenienced TRANSCENDENT.

From the outside barriers, TRANSCENDENT and CASIMIRO were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

When being steadied to obtain cover near the 1100 Metres, MERIDIAN GENIUS was directed out away from the heels of STOCK LEGEND which got its head on the side and shifted out.

MERIDIAN GENIUS was then left racing wide and without cover passing the 800 Metres.

Passing the 800 Metres, HARMONY N HOME commenced to travel keenly and shifted in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of STOCK LEGEND.

Passing the 100 Metres, STRIVE FOR GLORY was shifted in away from TRANSCENDENT which shifted in to continue improving when finishing off the race strongly.

Passing the 50 Metres, ISLAND SHINE was shifted out away from the heels of STOCK LEGEND.

When questioned, Mr C Fownes, the trainer of JAZZ STEED, stated that he believed that there was not a lot of pace engaged in the race and having in mind that EQUALETTA BLITZ had on occasions been unreliable at the start, he felt that as JAZZ STEED was carrying a light weight, there was an opportunity for the horse to overcome barrier 8 by being ridden in the first three rather than getting out of its ground in the early stages.

He said when EQUALETTA BLITZ began well, this required more use of JAZZ STEED to clear runners to its inside than he had hoped.

STOCK LEGEND and EQUALETTA BLITZ were sent for sampling.
