Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Ambitious Dragon settled midfield and one off the fence as Super Pistachio and Mighty High opened up six lengths on the field through the opening 800m, swooped to hit the lead five deep at the 300m and kept on gamely to score another convincing win. Smashed late, Xtension settled underneath the favourite, rallied four wide and wore down California Memory in the final few strides for second with the step up in trip. California Memory settled fourth from the rear, angled into the clear to the outside of Ambitious Dragon six deep at the 350m, worked to second at the 50m and was overhauled late. Pure Champion settled fourth and one off the rails, rallied three wide upon straightening and was only headed 50m out for a placing. He's just not up to the top three class-wise. Thumbs Up bided his time at the rear, cornered in widest out and made some ground. Irian made his run third from the rear and one off with cover, cornered with one wider out and was running on without menacing. Packing OK enjoyed the box-seat run, shifted one off the fence upon straightening and couldn't quicken with them. Super Pistachio and Mighty High were faltering at the 300m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (431) - THE CITIBANK HONG KONG GOLD CUP - Hong Kong Group One - 2000 Meters THUMBS UP was replated after the horse broke its right front plate in the stable.

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

XTENSION began awkwardly.

Near the 900 Metres, COLLECTION commenced to prove difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed close to the heels of CALIFORNIA MEMORY.

XTENSION had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that IRIAN had sustained a small wound to the right front fetlock and that MIGHTY HIGH had lost its right front plate.

AMBITIOUS DRAGON and XTENSION were sent for sampling.
