Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed late, Regency Poet wore down Ares in the dying stages after a box-seat run for a maiden win at his 23rd start. He went all right two back and was stepping out off an all-time low in the handicaps. Ares found one just too good after reclaiming the lead in a pace-stalking role outside Fortune Hero. It was a return to form following a downgrade. Farm Bumper stayed on well for third after a prominent run wide without cover. He was able to build on a positive run last start at Sha Tin. Favourite Cordyceps One produced a grinding effort to finish a non-threatening fourth after recovering from a tardy break to settle one-off better than midfield. He was restless prior to the jump but it was a better effort at his second run in the grade. Happy Profit made some ground after a one-off trip behind midfield. It was an improved run following a downgrade. Split Of A Second ran on late down the outside after making his run fourth last following an awkward start. It was a typical result. Viva Chef came up one-paced after a wide trip without cover in midfield. He had an excuse. Fortune Hero weakened 100m out after rolling to the lead passing the 1,000m. He's limited.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (697) - RAMBLER CHANNEL HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Meters

CIGAR BUDDIES was withdrawn on 24.5.22 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter SPLIT OF A SECOND (K Teetan).

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

CORDYCEPS ONE lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and then was crowded for room between HAPPY PROFIT and FORTUNE HERO which was taken out by REGENCY POET.

In this incident, HAPPY PROFIT became unbalanced after being bumped by CORDYCEPS ONE.

SPLIT OF A SECOND began awkwardly and stumbled, resulting in the horse losing ground.

SPLIT OF A SECOND was then shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

From the outside barriers, DASSIT, JADE THEATRE and TELECOM MISSILE were all steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Approaching the first turn after the 1100 Metres, HAPPY PROFIT shifted out away from CORDYCEPS ONE, resulting in INESTIMABLE, SPLIT OF A SECOND and DASSIT all being inconvenienced.

Near the 1050 Metres, VIVA CHEF got its head on the side and lay in towards the heels of FARM BUMPER.

VIVA CHEF then made the turn passing the 1000 Metres wide before obtaining cover behind FARM BUMPER near the 750 Metres.

When being steadied in an attempt to obtain cover behind ARES approaching and passing the 900 Metres, FARM BUMPER proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

As a result of FARM BUMPER not being able to shift in behind ARES, FARM BUMPER was left racing wide and without cover throughout.

Near the 550 Metres, CORDYCEPS ONE momentarily raced in restricted room between FARM BUMPER and REGENCY POET which got its head on the side and lay out towards the heels of ARES.

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

CORDYCEPS ONE, REGENCY POET and ARES were sent for sampling.
