FANTASTIC SHOW began only fairly.

In this incident, ELEGANCE PROMISE became badly unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by CHATER THUNDER.

When questioned regarding the performance of LUCKY MASTER, Apprentice H N Wong stated that he was asked to try and lead on LUCKY MASTER. He said, unlike at its last start, the pace of the race in the early stages was quick and when a number of horses which were better drawn than LUCKY MASTER were hard ridden to obtain forward positions, he elected to steady LUCKY MASTER and obtain a trailing position passing the 1100 Metres. He said LUCKY MASTER travelled well behind runners, however, in the Straight finished off the race only one-paced. He added whilst LUCKY MASTER may have appeared disappointing, the circumstances of the race, in particular the tempo in the early stages, were very different from that of last start when the horse was able to obtain an uncontested lead. A veterinary inspection of LUCKY MASTER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
LUCKY MASTER, FANTASTIC SHOW and GALLANT RETURN were sent for sampling.

Close to the finishing line, SUNSHINE UNIVERSE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ENCORE BOY which was straightened by its rider. This resulted in SUNSHINE UNIVERSE and PEACE COMBINATION again making contact as PEACE COMBINATION continued to lay out. Consequently SUNSHINE UNIVERSE was not able to be properly tested all the way to the end of the race. PEACE COMBINATION also proved difficult to ride out over the final 200 Metres when laying out.
Passing the 50 Metres, BRAVE KNIGHT was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of BEEKELY.
When questioned, Apprentice H T Mo (FISH N’ CHIPS) stated that he was instructed to ride the horse in a forward position. He said in the early stages FISH N’ CHIPS was able to race prominently to be positioned inside GALLANT ROCK. He said however FISH N’ CHIPS did not feel comfortable in its action and passing the 700 Metres got its head on the side and lay out towards the heels of GALLANT ROCK when ENCHANTED FEELING improved to its inside. He said after this FISH N’ CHIPS was reluctant to maintain its position when racing tight outside ENCHANTED FEELING. He added FISH N’ CHIPS continued to be reluctant to stretch out after being shifted away from the heels of the tiring GALLANT ROCK near the 250 Metres and subsequently finished off the race only fairly. A veterinary inspection of FISH N’ CHIPS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
After the race, S Clipperton stated that after being vigorously ridden along in the early stages from the inside barrier to take up a forward position, ZERO HEDGE travelled only fairly in the middle stages and then came under pressure passing the 500 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of TOURBILLON KING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.
A veterinary inspection of GALLANT ROCK immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

When questioned, D Whyte stated that it had been intended for ELECTRIC LIGHTNING to be ridden in a forward position from a wide barrier. He said in accordance with his instructions he rode ELECTRIC LIGHTNING positively in the early stages, however, the tempo of the race in the early stages was quicker than its most recent start when the horse was able to obtain a forward position. He said when ELECTRIC LIGHTNING was left racing wide after the 1500 Metres, he elected to steady the horse and obtain cover rather than continuing to ride it along in an endeavour to clear runners to its inside and obtain a forward position. He added this resulted in ELECTRIC LIGHTNING racing further back in the field than had been intended, however, the horse performed well and finished off the race strongly when ridden in this manner.
After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that SICHUAN BOSS was lame in its left front leg. Before being allowed to race again, SICHUAN BOSS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
A veterinary inspection of GOLDEN ACHIEVER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Passing the 1700 Metres, ANDOYAS raced tight between HAPPILABABY and HELENE CHARISMA.
Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, SUPREME PROFIT shifted out marginally and made heavy contact with the hindquarters of BASIC TRILOGY which was laying in. This resulted in BASIC TRILOGY becoming badly unbalanced and being turned in across the running of SUPREME PROFIT, causing that horse to be checked. When SUPREME PROFIT was checked, that horse shifted in and bumped PRAWN BABA which in turn shifted in and bumped RENAISSANCE ART. GENERAL SHERMAN, which was racing to the inside of RENAISSANCE ART, was steadied when crowded for room between RENAISSANCE ART and ROCKETEER and in doing so became badly unbalanced. After being turned in across SUPREME PROFIT, BASIC TRILOGY was then awkwardly placed inside the heels of GREEN DISPATCH (Apprentice H T Mo) which, when being ridden along, got its head on the side and lay in. In this incident, Apprentice Mo stopped riding GREEN DISPATCH and attempted to shift that horse out to relieve the tightening to BASIC TRILOGY. Apprentice Mo was advised that whilst the primary reason for SUPREME PROFIT being checked was as a result of contact on the hindquarters by BASIC TRILOGY, nonetheless in similar circumstances he must ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground
HAPPILABABY lost its right hind plate near the 450 Metres.
Passing the 400 Metres, DINOZZO was shifted out away from the heels of DOYENI which shifted in when awkwardly placed inside the heels of PRAWN BABA.

HELENE CHARISMA hung in badly in the Straight and proved difficult to ride and passing the 200 Metres shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of GENERAL SHERMAN which became unbalanced. HELENE CHARISMA continued to hang in and raced tight outside GENERAL SHERMAN for some distance and then passing the 100 Metres hung in further, resulting in GENERAL SHERMAN being crowded onto ROCKETEER which became unbalanced after being bumped by GENERAL SHERMAN. During this incident, Z Purton was not able to properly test HELENE CHARISMA due to the horse’s racing manners which were considered unacceptable. Before being allowed to race again, HELENE CHARISMA will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial.
BASIC TRILOGY lost its right front plate after the race.
When questioned regarding the tempo he set on GREEN DISPATCH, particularly between the 1600 Metres and the 1200 Metres, Apprentice H T Mo stated that he was able to cross DOYENI after the 1700 Metres and then immediately took hold of his mount in an endeavour to steady the tempo. He said when BASIC TRILOGY improved to be racing outside GREEN DISPATCH after the 1500 Metres, his mount commenced to travel keenly, however, he did not realize that he was setting as fast a tempo as he was at this time. He said after having been made aware of the sectionals of the race after the 1600 Metres, he believed that in retrospect he had erred in not making more of an effort to steady the tempo during this part of the race. Apprentice Mo, in the presence of his allocated trainer, Mr C S Shum, was told that as an apprentice who has had a good deal of experience both in Hong Kong and overseas, he should have been more aware of the tempo that set on GREEN DISPATCH. He was advised to ensure that he rides his mounts in such a manner so that they are able to finish off their race to the best of their ability.
The Stewards will interview S Clipperton, the rider of PRAWN BABA, regarding his riding of that horse from the 600 Metres prior to the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 12 July 2017.
