Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed to jump favourite, Leap Of Faith kept up a strong gallop to comfortably salute in a class record time after going forward very deep from gate 10 to lead 1,300m out. The writing had been on the wall in three prior starts at Sha Tin. Exceptional Nice kept on gamely for a fourth straight runner-up performance after tracking the winner in the run from gate four. His time will certainly come. Punted late, Indicative Vote kept on gamely for third settling better than midfield on the fence. He's naturally coming to hand in his six starts. King Opie just got up for fourth after turning the final bend one-off the fence worse than midfield. It was a better performance in a disappointing campaign. Surrealism came from last and widest out to just miss a top-four spot. It was another honest performance. Golden Spectrum only plodded after getting posted deep without cover in midfield from a wide gate. He had an excuse. Well punted late, Righteous Doctrine didn't land a blow after turning the final bend deep with cover towards the rear. He has struggled to recapture his form all season long. Bundle Of Delight failed to get into the act after turning the final bend at the rear of the field. He's a Class Four horse.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (832) - OI KWAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Meters

CINQUANTE CINQ and LEAP OF FAITH bumped at the start.

From the outside barrier, SUPER BUDDY was steadied and shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Despite being ridden along for some distance shortly after the start, GOLDEN SPECTRUM failed to muster speed and approaching the winning post on the first occasion was shifted across behind runners.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, RIGHTEOUS DOCTRINE got its head up when travelling keenly and awkwardly placed close to the heels of KING OPIE.

SURREALISM, which was following RIGHTEOUS DOCTRINE, was awkwardly placed behind that horse in consequence.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, LEAP OF FAITH was left racing very wide and was then ridden along to obtain the lead after the 1300 Metres.

After the 1300 Metres, GOLDEN SPECTRUM shifted in, resulting in CINQUANTE CINQ, SURREALISM and BUNDLE OF DELIGHT momentarily racing tight.

GOLDEN SPECTRUM was then shifted out to relieve the tightening, resulting in that horse being left racing wide and without cover.

GOLDEN SPECTRUM was then allowed to improve its position passing the 1100 Metres, but continued to race wide and without cover.

Near the 1250 Metres, RIGHTEOUS DOCTRINE got its head on the side and lay out away from YOO YOO KING.

Also near the 1250 Metres, SURREALISM raced close to the heels of RIGHTEOUS DOCTRINE.

At the 1150 Metres, YOO YOO KING was checked away from the heels of INDICATIVE VOTE.

BUNDLE OF DELIGHT, which was following, was hampered and inconvenienced in consequence.

After the 800 Metres, GOLDEN SPECTRUM was steadied away from the heels of SUPER BUDDY (B Shinn) which shifted in when not properly clear when improving its position from the rear of the field.

B Shinn was reprimanded and told to ensure that he provides sufficient clearance when shifting ground in future.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres CHANCHENG PRINCE and GOLDEN SPECTRUM raced tight.

Approaching the 250 Metres, SURREALISM raced tight outside the heels of RIGHTEOUS DOCTRINE.

Approaching the 200 Metres, KING OPIE was shifted in away from the heels of SUPER BUDDY to continue improving.

A veterinary inspection of RIGHTEOUS DOCTRINE, GOLDEN SPECTRUM and BUNDLE OF DELIGHT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LEAP OF FAITH and EXCEPTIONAL NICE were sent for sampling.
