For some distance approaching and passing the 600 Metres, FIGHTER BOY travelled very strongly when racing behind SUMSTREETSUMWHERE and outside SPICY GRILL. FIGHTER BOY continued to be held up for clear running until near the 350 Metres at which stage it raced tight outside SPICY GRILL.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SMART WONGCHOY, which was having its first race start today, K Teetan stated that after parading well SMART WONGCHOY became stirred up when proceeding to the Start. He said, unlike in its trials when the horse travelled strongly, SMART WONGCHOY did not travel kindly in today’s race when racing very greenly. He said the horse got its head up on a number of occasions and after the 500 Metres lay in when continuing to race with its head up. He said SMART WONGCHOY then gave ground over the latter stages and he believed the horse would be improved by the experience given how greenly it travelled during the race. A veterinary inspection of SMART WONGCHOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.
DUBLIN STAR, EL JEFE and ZERO HEDGE were sent for sampling.

J Moreira was told that whilst there were some circumstances to this incident, nonetheless he must ensure that he does not place undue pressure on other runners in order to improve his position. In this incident, JIMMU bumped the hindquarters of MORE THAN A HORSE which became unbalanced. CHARITY GO, which was following JIMMU, was shifted out away from the heels of that horse in consequence, resulting in SUCH A HAPPINESS being taken wider.

Throughout the race, LONE EAGLE travelled wide and without cover.
Z Purton (COBY OPPA) stated that after shifting in behind JUST NOT LISTENING near the 900 Metres, COBY OPPA immediately came under pressure and, in his opinion, did not appreciate the kickback.

On arrival at the Start, both C Y Ho (STAR OF YUEN LONG) and J Moreira (CRAIG’S STAR) expressed concern regarding the action of their respective mounts. An inspection of STAR OF YUEN LONG and CRAIG’S STAR by the Veterinary Officer found STAR OF YUEN LONG to be lame in the right front leg whilst CRAIG’S STAR was found to be lame in the left front leg and accordingly were not suitable to race.

GLORIOUS LOVER was then awkwardly placed outside TOP SCORE as that horse shifted out under pressure over the concluding stages.
Near the 150 Metres, AMAZING LUCK was shifted to the outside of PRANCE DRAGON to improve between that horse and HERCULES.

Throughout the race, CANTSTOPTHEFEELING travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground. A veterinary inspection of CANTSTOPTHEFEELING immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse’s trachea.
When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SHINING GEM, L Hewitson stated that as the horse was up in distance today, he rode his mount along in the early stages to obtain a midfield position. He said when TOP SCORE maintained its position to his inside, he was left racing wide and therefore he steadied his mount passing the 1200 Metres in an attempt to obtain cover behind that horse. He said as CIRCUIT THREE maintained its position behind TOP SCORE, he was not able to shift in and consequently raced three wide throughout the race. He said despite being up in distance, SHINING GEM did not travel as well as anticipated throughout the middle stages and was always under pressure to maintain its position. He added he had to ride SHINING GEM aggressively rounding the Home Turn in an attempt to improve his position, however, SHINING GEM did not quicken and then did not close off the race. A veterinary inspection of SHINING GEM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
A veterinary inspection of HAPPY FORCE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After being shifted away from the rail in the early part of the race, VOYAGE WARRIOR shifted out marginally after being crossed by SAUL’S SPECIAL near the 800 Metres which resulted in COUNTRY STAR, which was travelling keenly, being crowded for room inside KINGS SHIELD. When travelling keenly, COUNTRY STAR shifted out and made contact with KINGS SHIELD which resulted in COUNTRY STAR becoming unbalanced and losing ground near the 700 Metres. As the Stewards were satisfied that there was no rider carelessness involved in this incident, no further action was taken.
COUNTRY STAR had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 250 Metres was shifted out away from the heels of VOYAGE WARRIOR as that horse lay out under pressure.

Passing the 300 Metres, CALIFORNIA DADDY raced tight outside CHARIZARD which improved into tight running between that horse and HINCHINLOVE.
Near the 250 Metres, GUY DRAGON was crowded for room between SO GLORIOUS which, when racing greenly, got its head on the side and shifted out abruptly despite the efforts of its rider and FARHH ABOVE (C Y Ho) which shifted in before being directed back out to relieve the tightening to GUY DRAGON. C Y Ho was advised that although SO GLORIOUS’ racing manners played a significant part in this incident, nonetheless he was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care when shifting ground so as to ensure that other runners are not crowded for room. When SO GLORIOUS was corrected by its rider, it shifted in abruptly, resulting in COBY BA having to shift in away from the heels of SO GLORIOUS.
Approaching the 200 Metres, the whip of J Moreira (BEAUTY LOYAL) was knocked from his grasp by the whip of K C Leung (HINCHINLOVE).
Over the concluding stages, FOLLOW ME raced tight outside FARHH ABOVE as that horse improved into tight running outside REGENCY BO BO.
When questioned regarding his riding of FARHH ABOVE rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight, C Y Ho stated that passing the 600 Metres he was following CHARIZARD with SUPER FAST and FOLLOW ME racing directly to his outside. He said after the 500 Metres FOLLOW ME was taken wider by SUPER FAST as that horse shifted to the outside of REGENCY BO BO at which stage he commenced to shift out to follow REGENCY BO BO. He added however as he was aware that SUPER FAST was racing to the outside and behind REGENCY BO BO and with FOLLOW ME being positioned to the outside of SUPER FAST, he was not able to shift to the outside of REGENCY BO BO without causing interference to SUPER FAST. He said at this stage FARHH ABOVE quickly improved its position to be racing to the inside of REGENCY BO BO, however, he was comfortable for this to occur as this resulted in him racing behind CALIFORNIA DADDY which he expected would be able to take him into the race. He said passing the 400 Metres he had improved to be racing well inside the heels of REGENCY BO BO and he was badly held up for clear running behind CALIFORNIA DADDY which was racing between REGENCY BO BO and CHARIZARD. He added as CHARIZARD was shifting out passing the 300 Metres which resulted in CALIFORNIA DADDY racing tight to its outside, he felt that a run may present itself to the inside of CHARIZARD, therefore he directed his mount to the inside of CHARIZARD approaching the 250 Metres in an attempt to obtain clear running. He said when he was aware that GUY DRAGON was racing to his inside, he immediately straightened FARHH ABOVE to prevent causing interference to that horse which resulted in FARHH ABOVE continuing to be badly held up for clear running behind CALIFORNIA DADDY. He said passing the 150 Metres he commenced to direct FARHH ABOVE to the outside of the heels of REGENCY BO BO which resulted in FARHH ABOVE, which had a tendency to lay in, being awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse until the 100 Metres at which stage FARHH ABOVE was able to improve into tight running between REGENCY BO BO and FOLLOW ME. He said after obtaining clear running FARHH ABOVE then closed off the race strongly. After considering Jockey Ho’s evidence and after viewing the videos, the Stewards were satisfied that Jockey Ho’s explanation of his riding of FARHH ABOVE rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight was supported and accordingly no further action was taken.
After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that GUY DRAGON had sustained a minor laceration to the left hip.
FARHH ABOVE and BEAUTY LOYAL and GUY DRAGON were sent for sampling.
