Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite Iron King dashed strongly to win going away passing the 100m after a patient ride fourth last from a wide draw. He'll need to lift up in grade off a light weight. Regency Poet stayed on well to just hold second after a prominent run without cover from a tricky gate. He's progressed in each of his three starts in this grade. One Step Ahead finished well when gaining a run 150m out to just miss the quinella spot after biding his time third from the rear. He can produce an odd good run now and then. Tiger Glare produced his best run to date to just miss a placing following a rail run in midfield. Well-backed, The Full Bloom was unlucky not to have finished closer after getting held up for a run until peeling out at the 200m. Spicy Grill ran into heaps of trouble along the inside when trying to get into the act from the rear of the field. Moneymore got squeezed out late but was only plodding following a speed-chasing run.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (460) - YUEN SHIN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Meters

THE FULL BLOOM shifted out at the start and bumped MONEYMORE which became unbalanced, shifted out and inconvenienced THE ABRAXAS.

CHARITYDREAM shifted out at the start and hampered IRON KING.

IRON KING was then steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

ONE STEP AHEAD and ALLOY STAR bumped on jumping.

After this, from wide barriers, ALLOY STAR and ONE STEP AHEAD were shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

REGENCY POET shifted out at the start and inconvenienced ALLOY KING.

From the outside barriers, ANONYMA and SPICY GRILL were also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Near the 950 Metres, ALLOY KING was steadied away from the heels of REGENCY POET (A Hamelin) which shifted in when not properly clear.

A Hamelin was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

CHARITYDREAM, which was following ALLOY KING, was awkwardly placed behind that horse in consequence.

After the 900 Metres, REGENCY POET was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turns after the 900 Metres, MONEYMORE got its head on the side and lay out and near the 550 Metres shifted out away from SUPER EIGHTEEN and bumped REGENCY POET which became unbalanced.

Approaching the 700 Metres, TIGER GLARE travelled keenly and raced close to the heels of WHO'S HORSE.

Passing the 400 Metres, SPICY GRILL was steadied after attempting a run to the inside of WHO'S HORSE where there was insufficient room.

SPICY GRILL was then badly held up for clear running until after the 100 Metres and consequently was not able to be properly tested.

When SPICY GRILL was held up for clear running behind SUPER EIGHTEEN and TIGER GLARE passing the 200 Metres, it shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of TIGER GLARE which was racing tight inside MONEYMORE.

This caused TIGER GLARE to become unbalanced near the 150 Metres at which stage TIGER GLARE was also bumped by MONEYMORE which shifted in after being bumped by REGENCY POET.

THE FULL BLOOM was held up for clear running from on straightening until passing the 200 Metres at which stage the horse was shifted to the outside of REGENCY POET to obtain clear running.

ONE STEP AHEAD had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and after the 200 Metres was shifted out a number of horses to obtain clear running.

Approaching the 50 Metres, ONE STEP AHEAD got its head on the side and lay out, resulting in THE FULL BLOOM and ALLOY KING being inconvenienced.

C Y Ho reported that he was instructed to ride ALLOY KING more conservatively as the horse had not been finishing off its races of late when travelling in a forward position.

After the race, J Moreira stated that after becoming very fractious in the barriers, ANONYMA did not feel comfortable in its action at any stage and was making an abnormal breathing noise and subsequently failed to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of ANONYMA immediately following the race found that horse to have an epiglottic entrapment.

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

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of MONEYMORE, M L Yeung stated that after initially racing with cover behind THE ABRAXAS, MONEYMORE travelled well.

He said however that after the 800 Metres THE ABRAXAS improved forward of SUPER EIGHTEEN to be racing on the rail which resulted in MONEYMORE being left without cover.

He said as soon as this occurred, MONEYMORE immediately commenced to lay out and continued to do so rounding the turns.

He added after becoming unbalanced near the 550 Metres MONEYMORE was only one-paced in the early part of the Straight and after being crowded for room near the 150 Metres then weakened over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of MONEYMORE immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

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

IRON KING and REGENCY POET were sent for sampling.
