Recap by phillip woo

Leo's Pride was patiently settled second from the rear along the rails, hit the straight with two wider out and let down willingly to take control 80m out for a smart win with a return to the all-weather track. Brilliant Chariot was cast three deep in fourth until slotting in with cover approaching the 600m, swept to the lead four deep at the 250m and found one better on the afternoon. Our Dynasty settled fifth along the rails, cornered in three deep and stayed on well for third with a drop in grade and switch to the dirt under a big weight. Best Noodle settled behind midfield and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and made a decent bid l to overhaul Star Son in the dying stages for fourth. Star Son enjoyed a nice run three back and one-off the fence to the outside of Our Dynasty, hit the straight four deep and came up flat over the final 100m with plenty of money late. Gilded Flight enjoyed a soft run in third, straightened two deep and kept on evenly with every chance. Favourite Golden Treasure bided his time fourth from the rear, was asked to hold his ground passing the 800m, cornered in five wide and made only a mild bid. Speedy led and faded. Delish was never on the track. Punted late, Ferrabosco was struggling approaching the final bend.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (215) - NATHAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650 Meters TOY STORY began awkwardly.

GILDED FLIGHT was crowded for room at the start between STAR SON and SPEEDY which shifted out.

SPECTACULAR AWARD was crowded for room at the start between DELISH and FERRABOSCO which shifted out.

In this incident, SPECTACULAR AWARD made contact with the hindquarters of DELISH which became unbalanced.

From the outside barrier, DELISH travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

Near the 1300 Metres, BAMBOO DANCE got its head up and lost ground when being steadied away from the heels of DELISH.

Approaching the 400 Metres, GILDED FLIGHT and FERRABOSCO raced tight as GILDED FLIGHT attempted to shift to the outside of the heels of SPEEDY.

As a result of this incident, FERRABOSCO became unbalanced.

The performance of TOY STORY, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, TOY STORY will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of GOLDEN TREASURE, T Clark stated that his mount did not travel comfortably at any stage of today's race.

He said after the 1200 Metres GOLDEN TREASURE, despite being ridden along, was reluctant to maintain its position inside SPLENDID CHAMPION and then after the 800 Metres was reluctant to maintain its position inside BEST NOODLE.

He said despite being ridden along GOLDEN TREASURE did not show any turn of foot today and was most disappointing in its failure to close off the race as anticipated.

A veterinary inspection of GOLDEN TREASURE after the race revealed that the horse had sustained a small wound to the inside of the right front cannon.

Before being allowed to race again, GOLDEN TREASURE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on FERRABOSCO, which finished tailed out, at the request of Trainer Y S Tsui.
