Recap by phillip woo

Super Team settled nicely three back and just off the fence, shifted four wide soon after straightening and let down well to claim back-to-back mile successes, despite a return to Class Four. He has come solid and still remains one to follow. Good Thinker settled behind midfield and two deep, shifted off heels into the clear six wide at the 400m and finished up well to take second. Favourite Iron Hawk made his run fourth from the rear, had only two beaten at the 500m, switched into the clear with two wider out at the 400m and was hitting the line with purpose to just edge out late-plunged Top Dragon for third. Top Dragon made his run second from the rear and near the inside, straightened four deep, ducked inside Super Team for a clear run at the 100m and stayed on well in another positive performance. Saddlers Lodge pinged straight to the front, handed up to Mark Good at the 1,000m, reclaimed the lead one off the fence at the top of the straight, opened up three lengths at the 200m and was swamped in the final 100m. Panther Run was doing his best work late to finish just outside the placings. He's worth keeping safe next time out. Kingston Spartacus never clicked, while Mark Good faded badly soon after straightening with a move to blinkers.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (426) - CITIBANK CITIGOLD HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1600 Meters MOON CHASER and MARK GOOD bumped at the start.

After this, MOON CHASER was taken across behind runners.

AMAZING SUPERNOVA was slow to begin.

Near the 1100 Metres, IRON HAWK got its head up on a number of occasions when proving difficult to settle as its rider attempted to shift IRON HAWK in behind GOOD THINKER.

After shifting in to a position behind GOOD THINKER, IRON HAWK commenced to over-race and continued to get its head up on a number of occasions and near the 900 Metres shifted in when proving difficult to restrain, resulting in AMAZING SUPERNOVA being momentarily crowded for room.

PANTHER RUN, which was following IRON HAWK, was shifted away from the heels of that horse in consequence, resulting in KINGSTON SPARTACUS being taken wider.

TOP DRAGON, which was following PANTHER RUN, was checked away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

Near the 100 Metres, REAL DRAGON was steadied after being crowded for room between DARS AUTO and TOP DRAGON (W M Lai) which, when obtaining tight running to the inside of SUPER TEAM (M L Yeung), was then taken in by that horse.

W M Lai was advised to ensure that there is sufficient room when taking runs in future.

M L Yeung was advised that he must make more of an effort to prevent his mounts from shifting ground than he did on this occasion.

Close to the line, DARS AUTO was steadied away from the heels of TOP DRAGON which continued to shift in.

W M Lai was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he makes more effort to prevent his mounts from shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Throughout the race, GIANTS SERAPIS travelled wide and without cover.

Trainer Y S Tsui explained that despite being ridden along in recent starts from inside barriers, TOP DRAGON had failed to show early speed.

He said that when obliged to be ridden further back in the field than had been anticipated, TOP DRAGON had finished off its recent races well.

He said today, from barrier 14, he instructed W M Lai to shift TOP DRAGON across behind other runners in the early stages rather than ride the horse along in pursuit of a forward position.

When questioned, T Angland stated that rounding the Home Turn he committed to shift GOOD THINKER to the outside of CLYDESIDER as he thought that GIANTS SERAPIS was not travelling well to his outside and he would be able to obtain a run between these two horses immediately upon straightening.

He said that GIANTS SERAPIS took longer than he anticipated to commence to give ground which resulted in him being momentarily held up for running behind CLYDESIDER at the entrance to the Straight.

He said whilst the eventual winner, SUPER TEAM, which had been racing to the inside of CLYDESIDER, was going forward at this time, he had committed to shift to the outside of CLYDESIDER and therefore it was not available for him to shift to the inside of that horse to follow SUPER TEAM through.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that SADDLERS LODGE had lost its left front plate.

IRON HAWK, SUPER TEAM and GOOD THINKER were sent for sampling.
