Recap by phillip woo

Old-timer Nitro Express was ridden to lead from gate five, straightened two lengths on top and drew clear under a ride. The victory was much deserved after earning minor cheques in each of his nine other starts this term. Punted late, Shinealot stayed on well for second after one-off trip in midfield. He was well rated off an earlier placing this term. President Star ran on well near the outside to get the head down for third over Joy N Fun Legend after settling three wide with cover behind midfield. He continues his good run of form. Joy Fun N Legend came on strongly down the outside from near last to nearly fill a placing. He's turned the corner to fill the frame three times over this course from his past five starts. Fox Cheunger peaked on his run 100m out after looming as a place chance 200m out settling towards the rear from the widest draw. Big Bang Bong had his chance following a one-out, one-back run. It was a disappointing effort following an ideal run after showing steady progress in two prior starts. Happy Ichiban couldn't have a say in the finish despite getting a lovely run fourth along the fence. He's well rated but is having a hard time recapturing top form following soundness issues this season.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (681) - TAN SHAN RIVER HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Meters

At declaration time, A Hamelin was declared as the rider of both HAPPY ICHIBAN and FOX CHEUNGER.

It was established that A Hamelin had a firm commitment to ride HAPPY ICHIBAN.

As such, the Stewards permitted R Maia to be substituted as the rider of FOX CHEUNGER.

For this declaration error, Trainer K W Lui was fined $2,000.

BIG BANG BONG shifted in at the start and inconvenienced ENJOYABLE SUCCESS.

PRESIDENT STAR lost ground when badly crowded for room on jumping between GALAXY RACER which shifted in abruptly when being steadied to obtain cover and ROSSE SCARPE which was awkwardly placed outside NITRO EXPRESS.

In this incident, ROSSE SCARPE was hampered after becoming unbalanced.

From wide barriers, JOY N FUN LEGEND and FOX CHEUNGER were shifted across behind runners in the early stages to obtain cover.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, ENJOYABLE SUCCESS raced tight inside PRESIDENT STAR.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, SHINEALOT raced close to the heels of BIG BANG BONG.

ROSSE SCARPE travelled wide and without cover until near the 800 Metres at which stage E HONEY was left racing wide and without cover.

Rounding the Home Turn, ENJOYABLE SUCCESS was crowded for room inside SHINEALOT which shifted in marginally when being steadied away from the heels of ROSSE SCARPE which was commencing to give ground.

GALAXY RACER, which was following ENJOYABLE SUCCESS, was checked away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

The performances of SMART THINKER and ROSSE SCARPE, both of which finished tailed out, were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, SMART THINKER and ROSSE SCARPE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of E HONEY and GALAXY RACER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPY ICHIBAN immediately following the race found that horse to be lame in its right front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, HAPPY ICHIBAN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

NITRO EXPRESS and SHINEALOT were sent for sampling.
