Recap by phillip woo

In a ace where the field was well stretched out from top to bottom, early favourite, Real Supreme settled a distant third behind the cracking pace of Bullish King, swept to the lead three deep at the 200m and won rather handily. Plunged late to start favourite, Adoration settled fourth along the rails, rallied four deep and kept on gamely to just hold Berio for second. Berio travelled just outside Adoration, rounded the final bend five wide and kept away to make it tight for second. Fleet Command settled midfield and on the rails, worked into contention three deep for a placing at the 200m and just came up short in the final 50m. Gift Is Gift settled behind midfield and on the outside of Best Win, shifted off runners into the clear with two wider out at the 250m and got going late without making an impression. Forever Elation was at one point 12 lengths off the leader in last, but made a good deal of ground in the straight. Best Win travelled behind midfield and on the rails, shifted three deep soon after straightening and made some progress without ever looking a danger. Easy Winner made no impression. Bullish King was coming back to the field 200m out after stretching the field through a brisk pace. Victory Master never fired in his return from leg issues.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (341) - HOI YUEN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400 Meters Whilst in the saddling stalls, VICTORY MASTER lost its left front plate.

This plate was refitted.

VICTORY MASTER was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

TRAVEL BRAND was slow to begin.

VICTORY MASTER and FOREVER ELATION were crowded for room at the start between BULLISH KING and GIFT IS GIFT which was taken out by DOUBLE DRAGON.

FLEET COMMAND and LEGEND EXPRESS were hampered when crowded for room at the start between ADORATION and BERIO which was taken in by NEW GLORY which, when being steadied by its rider, got its head up, raced ungenerously and shifted in abruptly.

After the 1000 Metres, NEW GLORY proved very difficult to settle and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BERIO for some distance.

GIFT IS GIFT, which was following NEW GLORY, was inconvenienced in consequence.

For the major part of the race, EASY WINNER travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, M Chadwick stated that he had been instructed to lead on BULLISH KING and not to restrain his mount.

He said in the early stages he allowed BULLISH KING to use its natural speed to take up a forward position.

He said BULLISH KING took some time to cross DOUBLE DRAGON, however, at no stage in the early stages did he ride his mount along.

He said in accordance with his instructions he did not restrain BULLISH KING in the middle stages rather he allowed the horse to continue to run at its own pace.

He added whilst he was aware that BULLISH KING had established somewhat a margin over the remainder of the field and was travelling at a faster tempo than he would have liked, as he was instructed not to restrain BULLISH KING, he allowed the horse to continue on.

Trainer A S Cruz confirmed the instructions given to M Chadwick on BULLISH KING.

He said, in his opinion, BULLISH KING had been fired up somewhat by DOUBLE DRAGON racing to its inside and given the manner in which BULLISH KING travelled today, it was his intention to drop the horse back in distance if possible.

When questioned, D Beadman stated that he had ridden VICTORY MASTER in a barrier trial in the lead up to todays race and, in his opinion, this trial had only been fair.

He said he had hoped to obtain a midfield position on VICTORY MASTER, however, after being heavily bumped when crowded for room at the start, VICTORY MASTER was obliged to race further back in the field than had been hoped.

He said VICTORY MASTER did not travel comfortably during the race given the quick tempo.

He added that when the field quickened rounding the Home Turn VICTORY MASTER was left flat-footed and after this finished off the race only one-paced.

He said VICTORY MASTER, which was resuming today, would benefit from todays race.

A veterinary inspection of VICTORY MASTER after the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of NEW GLORY after the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in the horse's trachea.

REAL SUPREME and ADORATION were sent for sampling.
