Monster dividend as favourites fall by the wayside
Ricky Yiu Poon-fai's Polymer Win delivered the biggest blow-out when he scored at whopping odds of 135-1, the longest-priced winner of the season contributing to some monster exotic dividends. Polymer Win (Alex Lai Hoi-wing) joined Caspar Fownes-trained pair Victory Mascot and Windicator Power as the only 100-1 winners. The first three favourites all failed. Hot-pot Flash Knight overraced before being tailed-off, while second-pick Radiomarelli was put out of play when third-elect Dr Win broke down in front of him. Their absence and long-shots Jolly Fine (16-1) and Record High (87-1) filling the minor placings saw the tierce pay $386,861 for a $10 investment.
