Recap by phillip woo

Easy Gold was nicely rated in midfield along the fence underneath the favourite Able Dragon and behind the slow pace of Mighty Feeling, hugged the fence upon straightening and kept coming late to collar Classa in the shadows of the post for a maiden win at his seventh outing for his new trainer Richard Gibson. Classa was tucked away nicely in third behind the speed, swept to the front 200m out and was unfortunately overhauled late to remain a maiden after 40 starts. Plunged late, Conqueror travelled worse than midfield and three deep, before pressing forward behind the slow fractions to sit outside the leader Mighty Feeling at the 800m, straightened four deep and kept up a steady gallop late to hold off the late burst of Noble Twins to finish up a distant third. Noble Twins bided his time second from the rear and ran on strongly late. Favourite Able Dragon stayed on evenly over the final 150m with every chance. Punted late, Medic Champion was rated behind midfield, straightened with two wider out and only passed beaten runners late. Hammered late, Noble Flier made his run second from the rear, hit the straight with only Polygold wider out and never did fire. Mighty Feeling weakened after posting moderate fractions on the lead. Super Galileo was cast deep outside Able Dragon in the run, rounded the final bend six wide and was struggling 300m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (047) - WONG CHUK HANG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650 Meters After beginning awkwardly, ABLE DRAGON was bumped by MEDIC CHAMPION which shifted in at the start and as a consequence lost ground.

Also after beginning awkwardly, POLYGOLD was taken across behind runners soon after the start.

From a wide barrier, NOBLE TWINS was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, SUPER GALILEO got its head on the side, lay in and as a consequence became awkward on the heels of CLASSA.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, CLASSA was steadied to avoid the heels of SONOFTHEWEST (M Du Plessis) which shifted in when not fully clear.

M Du Plessis was reminded of his obligation to provide sufficient clearance.

Soon afterwards, CLASSA (H W Lai) then shifted in, resulting in EASY GOLD being steadied.

H W Lai was also told to ensure he is fully clear when shifting ground.

After passing the 1400 Metres, EASY GOLD was steadied away from the heels of CLASSA which shifted in after itself being awkwardly placed to the inside of the heels of MIGHTY FEELING.

When the pace steadied at the 1100 Metres, SUPER GALILEO was steadied away from the heels of SONOFTHEWEST and shifted out into a three wide position.

ABLE DRAGON, which was following, got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of SUPER GALILEO.

After racing wide and without cover in the early stages, CONQUEROR was allowed to stride forward after the 1000 Metres to take up a position closer to the rail.

From the 600 Metres, SUPER GALILEO was left racing wide and without cover.

For some distance passing the 200 Metres, EASY GOLD raced tight inside CLASSA which shifted in slightly.

A veterinary inspection of MIGHTY FEELING, SUPER GALILEO and NOBLE FLIER after the race did not show any significant findings.

ABLE DRAGON, EASY GOLD and CLASSA were sent for sampling.
