Recap by phillip woo

The well-backed Gracylove just outpointed Master Hero after racing to a narrow lead 200m out after travelling one-off behind midfield for a first win at his eighth start. He had put the writing on the wall with seconds in two of three prior starts. Master Hero shot to the lead 250m out racing better than midfield and wouldn't go down without a fight when headed in the straight. He's pretty honest over this Sha Tin trip. Zone D got going late down the outside to just edge Brilliant China for a placing without menacing the quinella pair after settling deep towards the rear from a wide gate. He has continued to find the line well to place in his past four starts after a win. Brilliant China just failed to get up for a placing after settling one off in midfield. He proved a shock placing last start was not a fluke. Big Two had his chance following a box-seat run but kept on one-paced over the final 150m. He's shown some promise in his two starts. Favourite Dragon Fortune produced only a grinding effort when asked for more following a ground-saving run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (698) - ORIENTAL EXPRESS HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Meters

As the start was effected, TELECOM PUMA stood flat-footed and consequently lost ground.

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

LOVE ME MORE shifted in abruptly on jumping, resulting in ZONE D being crowded for room and losing ground.

After this, from a wide barrier, ZONE D was shifted across behind runners.

From wide barriers, GO GO SIXTEEN and FOREVER were also shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

After the 800 Metres, ZONE D was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 500 Metres, SUPER RED DRAGON was awkwardly placed close to the heels of DRAGON FORTUNE.

BIG TWO was held up for clear running passing the 400 Metres.

In the early part of the Straight, ZONE D got its head on the side and lay in under pressure.

After the race, K C Leung stated that he was asked to have LOVE ME MORE in about a midfield position with cover if possible from a wide barrier.

He said after attempting to obtain that position in the early stages, LOVE ME MORE was left racing wide and without cover near the 1200 Metres when runners, which were better drawn than LOVE ME MORE, maintained their positions.

He said rather than remain racing wide and without cover, he allowed his mount to improve forward of MASTER HERO after the 1200 Metres and was able to obtain a position behind the speed near the 800 Metres.

He said this resulted in LOVE ME MORE racing further forward than had been anticipated.

He added, in his opinion, LOVE ME MORE's failure to finish off the race was attributable to the horse having to race without cover until near the 800 Metres and by being ridden in a more forward position than it was at its last start when successful.

A veterinary inspection of LOVE ME MORE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Also after the race, Z Purton was not able to offer any explanation for the performance of DRAGON FORTUNE.

A veterinary inspection of DRAGON FORTUNE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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

Before being allowed to race again, SUPER RED DRAGON will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

DRAGON FORTUNE, GRACYLOVE and MASTER HERO were sent for sampling.
