Recap by phillip woo

Debutant Jade Christy showed good speed from an inside gate to settle third underneath favourite Croesus, powered to the front 150m out and scored with something in hand. He's got potential to head higher. Punted late, Lifeline Elite jumped alertly to lead one-off the outside fence and kept up a good gallop to find only one smarter on the day. He was more settled in the run on this occasion and appears ready to salute the judge. Well-punted late, Beauty King travelled ahead of midfield and near the centre of the track, shifted into the clear at the 150m and stayed on well to take third in an encouraging debut. Vital Smart settled in midfield and near the outside and kept up a steady gallop to fill the frame a distant fourth. Bear Express travelled greenly before finishing off nicely over the final 200m. He requires more experience, but appears to have some ability. Favourite Croesus drove forward to settle second in the run and two-off the outside fence after breaking a bit awkwardly, but lacked any response when placed under pressure at the 400m and allowed to ease out of things nearly 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (141) - LINK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Meters The start was delayed as CROESUS lost its left front plate on the way to the barriers.

After being replated behind the barriers, CROESUS was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

On jumping, BEAUTY KING and CROESUS were crowded for room between TAKE BY STORM which shifted in and LIFELINE ELITE which, after initially shifting out when beginning awkwardly, was taken out by BEAR EXPRESS which also began awkwardly and shifted ground.

DARK SECRET and VITAL SMART were slow to begin.

YOUNG HAPPY was slow to begin and shortly after the start was steadied when crowded for room between BEAR EXPRESS and LONGWAH KID (T Angland) which got its head on the side and shifted out.

In this incident, T Angland lost the use of his left iron.

When attempting to regather the use of his left iron, T Angland dropped his whip near the 800 Metres.

After the 400 Metres, BEAR EXPRESS shifted in abruptly.

After this, BEAR EXPRESS raced greenly and shifted ground on a number of occasions.

Approaching the 50 Metres, SEIZE THE DAY was steadied away from the heels of CROESUS which shifted out when giving ground.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of CROESUS, D Whyte stated that it was anticipated that CROESUS would show good early speed as it had done in its only previous start in Hong Kong and in its trials.

He said although CROESUS was crowded for room at the start, the horse did not show the natural early speed that was anticipated.

He said throughout the race CROESUS travelled only fairly and came under pressure prior to the 400 Metres.

He said after this CROESUS did not quicken and finished off the race only one-paced.
