Recap by phillip woo

Go Ballistic just held off the late surge of Sky Gem after hitting the front 80m out following a dream run. The writing was on the wall at his final outing last season. Sky Gem was closing with every stride to make it close on the wire after switching into the open rounding the final bend following a midfield run. He rarely produces a bad run at this level. Anonyma just held on for third after clearing to the lead 1,500m out from a tricky gate. It was one of his better runs in a while. Magnetism stayed on nicely along the inside from behind midfield to nearly fill a placing. He's long in the tooth but has dropped to a nice mark and could get away with a race shortly in this grade. Favourite Crown Avenue came up flat after getting jostled about soon after straightening following a prominent run. He was carrying top weight in his first outing in the grade and might be better suited at Sha Tin nowadays. Exaltation peaked on his run 100m out after taking off from behind midfield near the 800m. He's not reliable. Wealthy Employee's move from towards the rear at the 700m was short lived. He needed the run.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (29) - HEUNG YIP HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800Meters

FORTUNE PATROL was slow to begin.

ANONYMA began awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, SPEED FORCE shifted in and brushed SKY GEM.

From the outside barriers, AMAZING LUCK and WEALTHY EMPLOYEE were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, WEALTHY EMPLOYEE was left racing wide and without cover and was steadied to obtain a trailing position behind EXALTATION after the 1400 Metres.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, WEALTHY EMPLOYEE shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of AMAZING LUCK.

After attempting to improve into tight running inside CROWN AVENUE making the turn after the 600 Metres, SKY GEM was steadied away from the heels of that horse which was taken in marginally by EXALTATION.

MAGNETISM, which was racing inside SKY GEM, raced tight for a short distance in consequence.

Near the 550 Metres, EXALTATION and SPEED FORCE bumped, resulting in SPEED FORCE becoming unbalanced.

At the entrance to the Straight, SPEED FORCE became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by GO BALLISTIC (L Ferraris) which shifted out.

L Ferraris was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

When SPEED FORCE became unbalanced, it shifted in, resulting in GO BALLISTIC momentarily racing in restricted room between SPEED FORCE and ANONYMA.

Apprentice C L Chau (EXALTATION) dropped his whip at the top of the Straight.

As this was the third occasion in recent times that Apprentice Chau had been reported to have dropped his whip, he was placed on notice that should he offend again in the near future, further action may be taken.

When endeavouring to improve into tight running between EXALTATION and SKY GEM approaching the 250 Metres, CROWN AVENUE was crowded for room between SKY GEM and EXALTATION which was taken out by SPEED FORCE.

After this, CROWN AVENUE raced tight inside SKY GEM for a short distance.

A veterinary inspection of FORTUNE PATROL and WEALTHY EMPLOYEE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

CROWN AVENUE, GO BALLISTIC and SKY GEM were sent for sampling.
