Recap by phillip woo

Firming late in the market, Winning Apex settled in midfield and one-off the fence from gate 12, rounded the final bend five wide and finished off well to get his nose in front 50m out for the win following a promising first-up effort earlier this month. Delta Hedge rated nicely in the run, hit the front four deep at the 200m and found one better in the dash to the line. Plentiful settled midfield and on the rails, was strung up in traffic upon straightening and got going late between Jun Hua and Delta Hedge to be a luckless third. Jun Hua sat second behind the leader Xilai Xianzi, cornered three deep and kept on gamely to inject value into the First-4. Supreme Winner settled behind midfield, shifted into the clear six- to-seven deep at the 250m and ran on well in his first run back for his new trainer Tony Millard. He'll come on for the effort and may be better suited at a mile. Fionn's Dragon was running without threatening. Master Gunner dwelt at the start, but recovered to settle behind midfield and on the rails, shifted three deep at the 350m, still short of room until popping out five deep at the 150m and kept on OK. He is racing well and may still sneak a race this season.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (350) - KUNG HEI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400 Meters FURTHER DETAIL was withdrawn on 24.1.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (sore left fore tendon) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter MASTER RIO (B Prebble).

Before being allowed to race again, FURTHER DETAIL will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

WINNING APEX, which was fractious in the barriers, began very awkwardly and was slow to begin.

MASTER GUNNER was slow to begin.

Near the 1200 Metres, SUPREME WINNER was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of GRAND DANCER which got its head on the side and shifted in.

After this, GRAND DANCER proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

FIONNS DRAGON, which was following SUPREME WINNER, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

Passing the 800 Metres, FIONNS DRAGON got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of SUPREME WINNER.

PLENTIFUL was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and then approaching the 200 Metres raced in restricted room between JUN HUA and DELTA HEDGE.

From after the 250 Metres until near the 100 Metres, MASTER GUNNER was held up for clear running.

FIONNS DRAGON was not able to obtain clear running until approaching the 200 Metres.

Throughout the race, WINNING APEX and SUNRISE travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of XILAI XIANZI after the race did not show any significant findings.

PLENTIFUL, WINNING APEX and DELTA HEDGE were sent for sampling.
