Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late, Mr Speedy was given an uncontested lead while pinging to the front, was always enjoyed a two-length advantage through dawdling fractions, cornered in nearly three lengths clear in the five path and kept up a strong gallop for a nice win. Late-fancied favourite, Medic Champion sat second and just off the rails, cornered in one off the fence and kept on reasonably well to claim the runner-up spot just ahead of Fantastic Guy and Noble Twins. Fantastic Guy travelled fourth from the rear and three deep with cover, swung the final bend widest out and was rattling home late to just edge Noble Twins for third. Noble Twins settled fourth and one off the rails, moved to third five deep at the 100m and lost a placing in the dying stages. Early betting favourite, King Galileo settled worse than midfield and two deep, cornered in two off the rails and came up flat over the last 100m. Healthy Contender settled behind midfield and on the rails, shifted four deep at the 250m and kept on one-paced. Racing Sport was handy in the run along the paint and only held his ground in the run to the line, though still an improved performance. Sabina made his run at the rear and three deep, hit the final bend with one wider out and only kept on passed beaten runners. Cheerful Double was posted three deep in midfield from a wide gate, cornered in with two wider out and failed to quicken.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (417) - YUEN LONG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 2200 Meters SUPER GALILEO proved difficult to settle in the early stages.

After the 200 Metres, KING GALILEO was inconvenienced when taken in by MEDIC CHAMPION which got its head on the side and shifted in under pressure.

For the majority of the race, CHEERFUL DOUBLE travelled wide and without cover.

The performance of EVEN EMAIL, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

MR SPEEDY and MEDIC CHAMPION were sent for sampling.
