HAPPY COOPERATION began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped WAYFOONG VINNIE which was crowded for room outside CIRCUIT KING. Despite being aggressively ridden along in the early stages, CIRCUIT KING was slow to muster speed.
From the outside barrier, PEARL WARM WARM was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
HAPPY COOPERATION lost its left front plate near the 950 Metres.
Near the 650 Metres, TRIUMPHANT JEWEL was taken wider by HAPPY COOPERATION which shifted out and consequently travelled wide and without cover.
Close to the finishing line, HAPPY COOPERATION improved to be racing close to the heels of TRAVEL COMFORTS (Apprentice H T Mo) and blundered passing the winning post. Consequently HAPPY COOPERATION was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race. As the Stewards were satisfied that at no stage had HAPPY COOPERATION improved to be racing outside the heels of TRAVEL COMFORTS, no further action was taken, however, Apprentice Mo was warned against the practice of allowing his mounts to shift ground under pressure.
TRIUMPHANT JEWEL lay out under pressure in the Straight and over the concluding stages raced tight between HAPPY COOPERATION and WAYFOONG VINNIE and consequently was not able to be properly tested.
