Recap by phillip woo

Late-plunged favourite Sky Forever showed a good turn of foot to get up in deep stretch after saving ground in midfield for an overdue win at his 13th start. He's racing well and can win again. Xponential wouldn't go down without a fight after dictating the run from gate nine. It was another fine effort up in grade after a win in Class Four. Namjong Sings stayed on gamely to just miss second after a pace-stalking run from a wide draw. He was able to build on a last-start win. Wood On Fire stayed on well to fill the frame without menacing the top three after peeling out for a clear run near the 200m following a box-seat run. It was a return to form on his past couple of runs, Lyrical Motion just failed to fill the frame after a one-out, one-back run. He'll be a force to be reckoned with if he gets into Class Four. Smart Idea weaved a run late to just miss a pay cheque after a one-off run behind midfield. It was another honest performance. Nicconi County was winding up down the outside after straightening near last but then had to stop riding when laying in under pressure passing the 200m. He might need a gear change. Atullibigeal was withdrawn by order of the stewards on veterinary advice.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (679) - KAU SAI CHAU HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

On arrival at the Start, Z Purton reported that ATULLIBIGEAL, which was fractious in the Parade Ring, did not feel comfortable in its action when proceeding to the barriers.

A veterinary inspection of ATULLIBIGEAL found that horse to be lame in its left hind leg and accordingly was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, ATULLIBIGEAL was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, ATULLIBIGEAL will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

NICCONI COUNTY lost ground when crowded for room on jumping between WOOD ON FIRE which shifted out marginally and SMART IDEA which shifted in.

SMART IDEA then became unbalanced, shifted out and bumped LYRICAL MOTION which then shifted out away from SMART IDEA, causing STORMTROUPER to lose ground after having to be steadied away from the heels of LYRICAL MOTION.

NAMJONG SINGS and XPONENTIAL brushed at the start.

From the outside barrier, WIND N GRASS was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

TRANSCENDENT was also steadied in the early and middle stages to obtain cover after racing wide.

When being steadied making the turn near the 1050 Metres to obtain cover, TRANSCENDENT got its head on the side and lay out.

After the 800 Metres, DIAMOND BRILLIANT was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 200 Metres, M Chadwick (WOOD ON FIRE) dropped his right rein.

Approaching the 50 Metres, STORMTROUPER (M F Poon) was steadied when crowded for room between DIAMOND BRILLIANT which initially shifted out away from SMART IDEA and NICCONI COUNTY which shifted in before being directed out abruptly to relieve the crowding to STORMTROUPER.

After the race, M F Poon reported that, in his opinion, STORMTROUPER did not back up from its run last Wednesday night.

He said the horse travelled satisfactorily in the early and middle stages, however, did not finish the race off in the Straight.

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

Close to the finishing line, WOOD ON FIRE and LYRICAL MOTION raced tight.

SKY FOREVER and XPONENTIAL were sent for sampling.
