Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late Universal Crown won going away after hitting the front 150m out following a dream run on the leader's back. He's always had breathing issues but struck a shallow test to score his maiden win at start 15. Favourite Shanghai Power just held on for second after dictating the run as expected. He loves this trip but the big weight took its toll. Sensationally-backed Dragon Pride just failed to get up for second after settling one off the fence behind midfield. He produced clearly his best run to date first start for his new trainer after a 423-day injury-induced absence. Nitro Express came from near last along the inside to spice up the quartet. It was a surprise effort with a sharp step back in distance but he didn't beat much. Raging Blaze ran on without menacing after a rails run behind midfield. It was his best run from nine outings. Cigar Buddies weakened after a breeze-punching run. He couldn't back up an all-the-way success last start. Casa Kingdom will sleep well after getting posted wide without cover the entire trip in midfield. Viva Chef was a non-factor after showing no gate speed. It was an out-of-character effort. Hammered at the jump, Winning Strikes bucked his rider off 100m after the jump.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (216) - MESIA HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000Meters

UNIVERSAL CROWN began only fairly.

VIVA CHEF and ENJOY MY LIFE bumped at the start, resulting in ENJOY MY LIFE losing ground.

RAGING BLAZE lost ground when crowded for room on jumping between CIGAR BUDDIES which shifted out abruptly and WINNING STRIKES which shifted in.

After this, CIGAR BUDDIES continued to shift out, resulting in WINNING STRIKES being inconvenienced.

RAGING BLAZE was then shifted across behind runners from a wide barrier.

Shortly after the start, NITRO EXPRESS shifted out and bumped XIANG LAN QI.

After travelling a short distance, WINNING STRIKES commenced to buck and continued to do so for a considerable distance which resulted in its rider, C L Chau, being dislodged from WINNING STRIKES near the 850 Metres.

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

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

C L Chau was subsequently examined by the Club's Chief Medical Officer and passed fit to fulfil his remaining race riding engagements.

After the race, M F Poon stated that when being vigorously ridden in the early stages, VIVA CHEF did not feel comfortable in its action behind.

He said he balanced VIVA CHEF up passing the 900 Metres after which the horse felt more comfortable in its action.

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

After the 700 Metres, CASA KINGDOM was left racing wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of ENJOY MY LIFE and CIGAR BUDDIES immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

UNIVERSAL CROWN and SHANGHAI POWER were sent for sampling.
