Recap by phillip woo

Drifting early favourite, Able Dragon settled behind midfield and three deep, cornered in with two wider out and mowed them down late in the shadows of the post off a positive lead-up trial. Late-fancied favourite Fantastisch settled one-out, one-back, rallied four deep and finished up nicely, only to find one too good with the return to the dirt. Brothers In Arms cleared to lead from gate nine, set a steady clip while straightening just over a length on top and gave way late. Ice Fire made his run at the rear from a wide gate, swung widest out upon straightening and was finishing up nicely down the outside. He's ready to win on this surface from a better draw. Plot Ratio was never on the track, moved closer at the 800m, swung the final bend with one wider out and stayed on well, despite the torrid run. Plunged late, Bingo Key made his run near the inside and third from the rear cornered in six wide and made some ground without threatening. Storm's Destiny settled midfield and two deep, cornered in four deep and kept on one-paced under pressure. He's looking for the 1,800m on this surface. M's Magic was posted three deep ahead of midfield without cover, rallied five wide and found little. Sparkling travelled better than midfield and on the rails, and came up empty at the 200m. Great Hero, who sat outside the leader, and Super Pepper, who enjoyed the box-seat, dropped out of contention by mid-straight.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (408) - WUHU HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650 Meters From the outside barrier, EPEE DE HUA was steadied at the start and shifted across behind runners.

For a short distance after the start, PLANET raced in restricted room between STORMS DESTINY and SUPER PEPPER which shifted in.

FANTASTISCH got its head up on a number of occasions shortly after the start.

For a short distance approaching the 1400 Metres, ROCKET AND GOLD got its head on the side when awkwardly placed close to the heels of PLANET.

After the 900 Metres, PLOT RATIO was left racing wide and without cover.

Rounding the Home Turn, SPARKLING was held up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SUPER PEPPER which commenced to give ground.

PLANET, which was following SPARKLING, was held up in consequence.

Shortly after entering the Straight, when STORMS DESTINY attempted to obtain a tight run between FANTASTISCH and ABLE DRAGON, it bumped ABLE DRAGON on a number of occasions as FANTASTISCH shifted out slightly under pressure.

In this incident, ABLE DRAGON became unbalanced.

Over the concluding stages, PLOT RATIO raced in restricted room between ICE FIRE and ABLE DRAGON.

Throughout the race, MS MAGIC travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, M L Yeung (SUPER PEPPER) stated that his horse travelled well behind the leader until the 600 Metres.

He said at this time SUPER PEPPER came under pressure and did not respond to his riding from that point.

A veterinary inspection of GREAT HERO after the race revealed that the horse was lame in the right front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, GREAT HERO will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of SUPER PEPPER and SPARKLING after the race did not show any significant findings.
