Recap by phillip woo

Co-favourite Telecom Smart stormed home down the outside to win going away 60m out after a patient ride four back and one off the fence. The win was well deserved after finding one too good in three straight runs. Plunged late to start equal favourite, Ares kept on well for second after moving to the front 200m out after stalking the leader Ever Joy from an awkward gate. He's shown he's back on track in his past two of three runs following a downgrade. Ice Legend found a couple too smart in the end after a box-seat run. He'll be winning shortly after placing in back-to-back runs. Hardly Swears would have filled a placing if he could have stayed in a straight line after settling one off behind midfield. It's only a matter of time before he salutes again. Winston's Lad ran on steadily following a rails run in midfield to just finish out of the top four. He's in the right grade but requires a stronger rider. Amazement ran on without menacing after biding his time fourth last from a wide draw. It was a better effort at his fourth start but he's still a work in progress. King's Trooper failed to find much when asked for an effort following a oneout, one-back run. He's struggled to recapture top form in his five outings this term.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (740) - PORT SHELTER HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

TELECOM SMART began only fairly.

EVER JOY and HARDLY SWEARS brushed at the start.

ARES shifted out on jumping and hampered ALMIGHTY PEGASUS.

AMAZEMENT (J Moreira) shifted out on jumping and hampered SURE WINNER.

In this incident, J Moreira momentarily lost the use of his left stirrup iron.

After this, from wide barriers, AMAZEMENT and SURE WINNER were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

From the outside barrier, PRINCE OF BON BON was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Shortly after the start, ICE LEGEND got its head on the side and lay in and inconvenienced ULTIMATE FOCUS which was awkwardly placed outside the heels of WINSTON'S LAD.

Making the first turn near the 1050 Metres, EVER JOY got its head on the side and lay out.

ALMIGHTY PEGASUS also made the turn near the 1050 Metres awkwardly and then near the 800 Metres was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 800 Metres, ULTIMATE FOCUS got its head up when travelling keenly and awkwardly placed behind WINSTON'S LAD.

After this, ULTIMATE FOCUS continued to travel keenly and shifted out after the 700 Metres, resulting in AMAZEMENT being momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of TELECOM SMART.

Passing the 450 Metres, ULTIMATE FOCUS became badly unbalanced and lost ground when reluctant to maintain its position inside HARDLY SWEARS.

SURE WINNER, which was following ULTIMATE FOCUS, was inconvenienced in consequence.

In the early part of the Straight, ICE LEGEND got its head on the side and lay in and was reluctant to improve to the outside of EVER JOY.

After being shifted to the outside of EVER JOY at the 250 Metres, ICE LEGEND then continued to lay in under pressure for the remainder of the race.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on HARDLY SWEARS at the request of Trainer K H Ting.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

TELECOM SMART and ARES were sent for sampling.
