Recap by phillip woo

Exceptional Nice took control 150m out after his dream run tracking a slow pace in the box seat to post his Hong Kong win on his 24th start in the city. He was a Class Three horse in Class Four. My Intelligen nearly stole the race from the front. He relished a rise in trip after his pace-staling failure two weeks ago over an inadequate 1,200m. Concerto ran on nicely from behind midfield at massive odds. It was a vastly improved effort despite the modest tempo with him rising in trip and dumping his blinkers. Favourite Amigos Giggle had every chance after travelling in the one-one and peeling out for his run 400m out. He was costly but it was another honest effort. Cordyceps One made only a mild bid after travelling three back on the fence. He is still trying to find his legs after winning his final two starts last season. Flying Silver stayed on reasonably well after taking closer order in midfield. The three-year-old has shown some progress in his past two starts. Amazing Boy ran on without menacing after travelling towards the rear from his wide draw. He was too far back in the run in the slowly run race.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (107) - HORSEPOWER HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Meters

On arrival at the track, CORDYCEPS ONE, which had sustained an abrasion to its left hip when being transported to Happy Valley, was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

CORDYCEPS ONE, which was leaning in the outside of its gate, began awkwardly and then became unbalanced when bumped by FEARLESS FIRE which shifted in.

SUPER HORNET and FLYING SILVER brushed on jumping.

After this, SUPER HORNET was steadied to obtain cover.

CONCERTO began awkwardly and lost ground.

From the outside barriers, AMAZING BOY, V CHEVALIERS and REACH GOAL were all shifted across behind runners to obtain a position closer to the rail shortly after the start.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, AMAZING BOY was steadied away from the heels of V CHEVALIERS when being shifted across behind that horse to obtain cover.

Near the 1300 Metres, REACH GOAL got its head on the side and shifted out across the heels of AMAZING BOY.

Approaching and passing the 1200 Metres, FEARLESS FIRE commenced to travel keenly and got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of FREE FOAL.

After this, FEARLESS FIRE continued to prove difficult to settle in the middle stages.

After the 850 Metres, FLYING SILVER raced wide and without cover.

Approaching and passing the 600 Metres, V CHEVALIERS and FEARLESS FIRE raced tight as V CHEVALIERS improved forward of FEARLESS FIRE as that horse attempted to improve to the outside of FREE FOAL.

Passing the 300 Metres, SUPER HORNET got its head on the side and lay in under pressure.

K C Leung, the rider of REACH GOAL, was reminded of his obligations in respect of using the whip on a horse which is not in contention of placing.

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