Recap by phillip woo

Short-priced favourite, Happy Index was kept honest on the lead to his outside by Green Zone, straightened narrowly on top and kept up a good gallop in a thrilling stretch battle to narrowly come home on top from a fast-finishing Costa Del Sol to remain unbeaten in four outings over this course and distance. Best-backed, Costa Del Sol slotted in behind midfield and three deep from the widest gate, cornered in five wide and finished up nicely to make it close at the finish while collaring Green Zone for second. Green Zone lost nothing in defeat. Palepale travelled a bit keenly but was closing the gap to make it close for a placing. Nice Folks took off very deep at the 500m, straightened with one wider out and was hitting the line well without threatening the top four. Loads Of Joy kept on evenly, while Withinmyheart got going late when the race was all over.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (559) - PROMOTING AN INCLUSIVE SOCIETY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters ELEPHANT MAGIC bounded in the air at the start and lost ground.

From a wide barrier, XI YING MEN was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, LOADS OF JOY was crowded for room between FATBOY SUGAR and HAPPY INDEX which shifted out.

Near the 1100 Metres, ELEPHANT MAGIC was momentarily steadied away from the heels of NICE FOLKS (W M Lai) which shifted in when not properly clear.

W M Lai was advised to exercise care.

After the 1000 Metres, PALEPALE commenced to over-race when attempting to be shifted in behind GREEN ZONE.

PALEPALE then continued to race fiercely for some distance.

FATBOY SUGAR, which was following, also commenced to over-race and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PALEPALE.

Approaching the 600 Metres, FATBOY SUGAR got its head on the side and shifted out towards COSTA DEL SOL.

For the majority of the race, COSTA DEL SOL travelled wide and without cover.

HAPPY INDEX and COSTA DEL SOL were sent for sampling.
