Recap by phillip woo

Xi Ying Men relished a track with cushion and a good gate to come out on top. He was prominently ridden in fourth near the outside fence, split Dane Patrol and Genki Moochi to hit the lead 200m out and kept finding for the win. Share Of Gold travelled out on his own on the far side ahead of midfield and just outfinished Diamond Knight for second. He's racing well with back-to-back seconds under his belt and looks overdue to go one better. Diamond Knight was rated in midfield and on the outside fence and finished off soundly late to come up a stride short of the runner-up position. Genki Moochi showed pace to settle second and was headed inside the final 50m for a placing. Jun Qi was out back before making good ground nearest the outside fence. The Prince broke a stride slow after leaning against the gates, settled to the outside of Blue Caviar ahead of midfield at the 800m and found little when placed under pressure at the 400m. Blue Caviar regrouped to settle just off the leaders at the 800m after an awkward break, copped a bump by Impeccable at the 200m and kept on evenly thereafter with every chance.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (059) - SHANGHAI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000 Meters THE PRINCE jumped awkwardly and made heavy contact with PERFECT FIT and as a consequence lost ground.

CLASSIC AWARDS was slow to begin.

Over the final 50 Metres, POCKET ROCKETS and PERFECT FIT were held up and unable to be tested.

When questioned, C W Wong advised that he was instructed to ride JUN QI in a prominent position if the horse began well.

He said however that after jumping a little awkwardly, he was obliged to steady JUN QI a short distance after the start when POCKET ROCKETS shifted in.

He said that after this JUN QI came off the bit and he was obliged to push the horse along approaching the 600 Metres to make some ground.

He said that passing the 400 Metres he shifted to the inside of the heels of DIAMOND KNIGHT, hoping to find room to advance his position, however, when he was unable to do so he switched JUN QI out across the heels of DIAMOND KNIGHT after the 300 Metres in order to make ground hard up against the outside fence.

He added that after making ground approaching the 100 Metres, he was obliged to steady JUN QI away from the heels of DANE PATROL as that horse commenced to give ground and shift back in.

He said that over the final 50 Metres he was able to take advantage of a run to the outside of DIAMOND KNIGHT where upon JUN QI closed off the race well.

C W Wong was advised that the Stewards would note his explanation, however, he was reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts right to the finishing line where circumstances permit.

A veterinary inspection of BLUE CAVIAR after the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and an endoscopic examination also showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being permitted to race again, BLUE CAVIAR will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

BLUE CAVIAR, XI YING MEN and SHARE OF GOLD were sent for sampling.
