Recap by phillip woo

Kowloon East Star had enough left in the tank to hold off Flying High for the win after rapidly finding the front from gate 13. Not a total surprise after placing second-up over the course and distance from four other starts. Flying High was closing with every stride to go under by a length following a midfield run in the centre of the course. He relished a step back to the course and distance of a career best fourth at his penultimate run. Turbo Power dashed late to grab a placing close to home after travelling behind midfield. He can bob up at any moment at either this trip or the 1,200m. Cheval Valiant grudgingly gave way after switching over the frame from the far side to chase the winner from a low draw. It was a good run following a fetlock injury. El Jefe made up heaps of ground late down the stand side after a patient ride towards the rear from a wide draw. He needed a stronger pace. Post-time favourite California Vanes kept on evenly after copping a bump 250m out racing handy on the grandstand side. He went OK on debut here and will certainly gain experience from the run. Newcomer Lucky Gor was red flagged and withdrawn after acting up in the gate after firming as the favourite.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (356) - D B PIN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Meters



After being loaded into the barriers, LUCKY GOR became fractious, reared, got its left front leg over the adjoining barrier partition and sat down.

LUCKY GOR was removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said that in his opinion it was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, LUCKY GOR was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, LUCKY GOR will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Following the withdrawal of LUCKY GOR, all horses were removed from the barriers and the start of the race was delayed.

ACA POWER and FLYING HIGH bumped at the start.

FLYING HIGH was then awkwardly placed inside the heels of HAPPY FAT CAT a short distance after the start.

TURBO POWER shifted in at the start and bumped ISLAND SHINE.

EL JEFE began very awkwardly, shifted out and bumped TSUEN WAN GLORY which also shifted in on jumping.

This resulted in both horses becoming unbalanced and losing ground.

KOWLOON EAST STAR began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped CALIFORNIA VANES.

Passing the 600 Metres, FORTUNE MARBO shifted in abruptly, resulting in ACA POWER being checked in away from the heels of FORTUNE MARBO.

After this, FORTUNE MARBO lay in under pressure.

Near the 350 Metres, HAPPY FAT CAT shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of CALIFORNIA VANES which became unbalanced.

Passing the 300 Metres, HAPPY FAT CAT raced tight outside CHEVAL VALIANT which shifted out.

CHEVAL VALIANT then lay out under pressure for the remainder of the race.

Approaching the 50 Metres, FLYING HIGH, which was laying out, shifted out and inconvenienced TURBO POWER.

A veterinary inspection of GIVE WAY PLEASE immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

CALIFORNIA VANES, KOWLOON EAST STAR and FLYING HIGH were sent for sampling.
