Recap by phillip woo

Harmony Fire easily got up 100m out for the win after a well-executed one-out, oneback ride from an awkward gate. He defied a rise in class for a third win from six starts and there's likely more to come from the three-year-old. Heart Conquered was no match for the winner but still came away a clear-cut second after hitting the front 160m out following a pace-stalking run outside late-fancied favourite Trader. Like That got going late after a handy run without cover three deep to fill a placing. He rarely produces a bad run and this was a pleasing first ever run over the course. Post-time favourite Trader weakened 100m out after dictating the run. It was a better effort with a switch to the Valley 1,000m after misfiring in his past two Sha Tin runs following a debut win. Pegasus Glory ran on steadily to earn a minor cheque settling one off in midfield from a wide draw. It was a positive first effort over this course. Early favourite Larson had nothing left in the tank 100m out after a box-seat run. He disappointed after placing in his past three runs and may require a break. Specked late, Cantstopthefeeling quickly retreated through the field following a midfield run after bucking and kicking 850m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (742) - DEEP BAY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Meters

INVINCIBLE MISSILE was slow to begin and then despite being ridden along became detached from the field and subsequently finished tailed out.

The performance of, INVINCIBLE MISSILE was considered unacceptable.

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

PEGASUS GLORY shifted out at the start and bumped LIKE THAT.

In the early stages, SMOKEY BEAR was steadied from a wide barrier to obtain cover.

Approaching the 800 Metres, SMOKEY BEAR became unbalanced when awkwardly placed close to the heels of HARMONY FIRE.

Passing the 250 Metres, PEGASUS GLORY got its head on the side and shifted in under pressure, requiring its rider to stop riding and correct his mount.

SMOKEY BEAR, which was racing inside PEGASUS GLORY, shifted in away from that horse and in doing so bumped the running rail.

Throughout the race, LIKE THAT travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, H Bentley (CANTSTOPTHEFEELING) stated that after travelling about 75 Metres and when being ridden along, CANTSTOPTHEFEELING commenced to buck and became badly unbalanced in its action for some distance, resulting in the horse losing a significant amount of ground and being retired from the race.

He said it then took him some time to pull up CANTSTOPTHEFEELING which he felt appeared to be sound in its action.

He said when unsaddling CANTSTOPTHEFEELING, the saddle had shifted back on the horse but at the time the horse commenced to buck, the saddle appeared to be in place.

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

Before being allowed to race again, CANTSTOPTHEFEELING will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial carrying a raceday saddle.
