Recap by phillip woo

Lightning Storm took the sit behind the leader Packing Champion after jumping quickest of all, reclaimed the front 200m out and drew clear for a comfortable win. He's now won two of three starts. Favourite Pretty Queen Prawn ran on well from midfield to grab second 20m out. He's a winner waiting to happen after placing in his past two of six starts. Excellent Peers found a couple too good after a handy run along the fence. He's made a good impression in his past three of four starts and it's only a matter of time before he breaks through. Ka Ying Spirit held his ground after a one-out, one-back run. He wasn't quite good enough to give the top three weight. Packing Champion just held on for a minor cheque after getting overhauled mid-straight leading from a wide gate 750m out. He ran OK after waking up with a second two runs back. Gorgeous Vitality came from last and widest out to just miss a pay slip. It was a much better run stepping up in distance with a switch to the Valley after misfiring twice. Happy Time wasn't far off a minor pay day after a rails run behind midfield. He's not far off a bottom.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (399) - TSUN YIP HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Meters

EXCELLENT PEERS began only fairly.

PRETTY QUEEN PRAWN shifted in at the start and bumped KA YING SPIRIT.

HAPPY TIME began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped NOIR RIDER which became unbalanced.

GORGEOUS VITALITY shifted out at the start and bumped OVERSUBSCRIBED which was crowded for room inside CANTSTOPTHEFEELING.

After this, GORGEOUS VITALITY and OVERSUBSCRIBED were shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

From the outside barrier, NORDIC COMBINED was steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain a position closer to the rail in the early stages.

Near the 450 Metres, CANTSTOPTHEFEELING was bumped and taken wider by OVERSUBSCRIBED which shifted out.

CANTSTOPTHEFEELING was again taken wider at the entrance to the Straight by OVERSUBSCRIBED which shifted to the outside of HANDSOME GUYS.

Passing the 300 Metres, KA YING SPIRIT got its head on the side and lay in towards the heels of LIGHTNING STORM, resulting in KA YING SPIRIT being awkwardly placed outside that horse.

Close to the finishing line, HAPPY TIME was awkwardly placed behind EXCELLENT PEERS.

Because of this, HAPPY TIME was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

HANDSOME GUYS travelled wide and without cover throughout the race whilst CANTSTOPTHEFEELING travelled wide and without cover for the majority of the race.

When questioned, K C Leung (NOIR RIDER) stated that he was instructed to take up a trailing position behind the speed as it was anticipated that the majority of horses which were drawn inside NOIR RIDER would take up forward positions.

He said in the early stages he shifted NOIR RIDER across to race behind PRETTY QUEEN PRAWN, a horse which he expected would take up a forward position and would be a good chance in the race.

He said when PRETTY QUEEN PRAWN did not take up as forward a position as he anticipated, this resulted in NOIR RIDER being further back in the field than had been anticipated.

After the race, the Veterinary Surgeon reported that NOIR RIDER was a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

LIGHTNING STORM and PRETTY QUEEN PRAWN were sent for sampling.
