Recap by phillip woo

Turf Express enjoyed the box-seat run, worked to the lead one-off the fence at the 200m and kept up a strong gallop off a light weight for the victory with money coming on late. Short-priced favourite Smart Giant travelled one-out, one-back, was held up soon after straightening and finished off well when getting a clear shot at the 200m. Helene Witty was given an uncontested time on the lead through moderate fractions, straightened a length on top and kept on well to easily hold third from Jacobee with late market support. Jacobee made his run three back and on the fence and made some minor headway. Pure Champion made his run behind midfield after botching the start by three lengths, straightened three deep and was closing the gap late. National Treasure was covering ground near the speed, hit the straight four deep and was struggling over the final 150m. Outdoor Pegasus travelled worse than midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend six wide and failed to lift. Victor Delight was snagged back from a wide gate, circled the final bend with one wider out and was plodding over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (060) - BEIJING HANDICAP - Class 1 - 1600 Meters PURE CHAMPION kicked the running rail on the way to the Start.

After arriving at the Start, PURE CHAMPION was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

After being restless in the barriers, PURE CHAMPION reared as the start was effected and consequently lost a considerable amount of ground.

Before being allowed to race again, PURE CHAMPION will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

JAMESINA shifted out at the start, hampering VICTOR DELIGHT.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, VITALITY EXPRESS failed to muster speed and settled back in the field.

Due to the slow tempo on the first turn, JACOBEE got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of TURF EXPRESS and made contact with the running rail.

Approaching the 600 Metres, JAMESINA was taken wider by OUTDOOR PEGASUS which shifted out around the heels of SMART GIANT.

PURE CHAMPION was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

SMART GIANT was held up for clear running until approaching the 250 Metres.

D Whyte reported that although obliged to race three wide and without cover throughout the event, NATIONAL TREASURE failed to stretch out in the Straight and felt awkward in its action.

A veterinary inspection of NATIONAL TREASURE after the race did not show any significant findings.

When questioned, T Clark stated that whilst OUTDOOR PEGASUS may not have been suited by the tempo of the race which developed into a sprint home, the horse was nonetheless afforded a nice run on the back of the favourite, SMART GIANT throughout the early and middle stages.

He further stated that OUTDOOR PEGASUS failed to respond to his riding in the Straight and did not close off its race.

A veterinary inspection of OUTDOOR PEGASUS after the race did not show any significant findings.

TURF EXPRESS and SMART GIANT were sent for sampling.
