Recap by phillip woo

Firming late, Flashing Aura travelled behind midfield and two deep, straightened four deep and quickened well to take control 50m out for the win. Silver Grecian was hard ridden and under the whip at the 1,200m to stay in touch in midfield and two deep, rallied five wide, shifted further out at the 200m and finished willingly to run down Aomen in the final few metres for a pleasing second in his dirt debut. Aomen pressed forward from a wide gate to settle second in the run behind favourite Helene Spirit at the 1,300m, moved to the front at the 200m and was swamped in the final 20m to finish up third. Helene Spirit was headed at the 200m and kept on a clear-cut, but distant fourth. Free Judgement ran on late without threatening. Rio Willie kept on evenly under a hustling ride. King Of Reason cornered in five wide and kept on one-paced over the final 200m. Fortune Red Pepper found little under a hustling ride. Specked at long odds, Just Fantastic was back to last from a wide gate at the 800m, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept on passed beaten runners. St Didar was giving ground 300m out to the dismay of punters that poured into him late.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (496) - CHEUNG CHAU HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650 Meters OLE OLE was withdrawn on 20.3.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (sore left front heel) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter EURO SWIFTLY (T Angland).

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

FREE JUDGEMENT was checked when crowded for room at the start between GROOVY and FORTUNE RED PEPPER which began awkwardly and shifted in despite the efforts of its rider.

JUST FANTASTIC (Apprentice K C Ng) was slow to begin and shortly after the start was momentarily crowded for room between FLASHING AURA and KING OF REASON which shifted out.

After this, JUST FANTASTIC was ridden along but was unable to obtain a forward position and passing the winning post on the first occasion, when racing wide, was shifted across behind runners.

After the race, Apprentice Ng reported that in the early and middle stages JUST FANTASTIC, despite being ridden along, was reluctant to improve its position.

From a wide barrier, EURO SWIFTLY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early part of the Straight, FREE JUDGEMENT had some difficulty obtaining clear running.

Throughout the race, RIO WILLIE and KING OF REASON travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of CARTHAGE after the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was not able to be scoped.

HELENE SPIRIT, FLASHING AURA and SILVER GRECIAN were sent for sampling.
