Recap by phillip woo

Hawthorne had too much natural speed to eventually lead from gate nine, straightened a length on top two off the fence and kept finding to repel the challenge of Flashing Guy for back-to-back wins. Late-fancied favourite Flashing Guy sat second on the rails, loomed a winning threat one off the fence at the 200m and only held his ground over the final 100m with every chance. Early favourite Danewin Winning was posted three deep without cover ahead of midfield, moved closer to settle fourth at the 400m, swung the final bend widest out and kept on gamely for a placing. Happy Ha Ha made his run at the rear after breaking sluggishly, shifted into the clear at the 200m and finished up nicely to take fourth. . Hannibal Barca stayed to the fence upon straightening and kept on all right in a much better fifth start in Hong Kong this season. Firming third choice, Supreme Jewellery settled worse than midfield and one off the rails, straightened four deep and kept on one-paced without threatening with a switch to Happy Valley. Super Plus was always off the track while travelling behind midfield from a wide gate, was caught up in traffic while rallying five-to-six wide upon straightening and never was really tested in the straight run.

From the outside barrier, SLICK BULLET was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

For the major part of the race, DANEWIN WINNING travelled wide and without cover and near the 500 Metres was taken wider by LOYAL ARMY which shifted out after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of EVER BEAUTY.

Approaching the 400 Metres, SUPREME JEWELLERY was awkwardly placed inside the heels of LOYAL ARMY.

Shortly after entering the Straight, EVER BEAUTY shifted out and bumped LOYAL ARMY.

When being shifted out to obtain clear running near the 200 Metres, HAPPY HA HA was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of LOYAL ARMY which was giving ground.

Approaching and passing the 200 Metres, SUPER PLUS was held up for clear running behind EVER BEAUTY which was giving ground and then after obtaining clear running to the outside of EVER BEAUTY passing the 150 Metres, SUPER PLUS was bumped by LOYAL ARMY near the 100 Metres when that horse shifted in.

HAWTHORNE and FLASHING GUY were sent for sampling.
