Recap by phillip woo

Blaze King went straight to the front from gate 13, held a length margin for the good part and kept finding to score an overdue win after two earlier seconds at this trip. London China Town made his run ahead of midfield and one off the stands side and stayed on nicely to take second. Favourite Bear Hero settled around midfield in the centre of the course from an inside gate, loomed a winning chance at the 200m and kept on evenly over the last 100m. He was beaten by the draw. Earl Of Leitrim was handy in the run and just outside Bear Hero, was asked for an effort at the 400m and kept on well in his first try over the straight 1,000m. Sir Eagles made his run third from the rear and closest to the rails side from an inside gate, loomed a place chance at the 300m and came up one-paced over the last 200m. Specked late, Good Boy Boy and California Choice only held their ground over the final 200m. Vital Flyer failed to recover after checking off the heels of Good boy Boy at the 350m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (681) - POKFULAM PUBLIC RIDING SCHOOL HANDICAP - Class 1 - 1000 Meters AMIGO was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (sore left front fetlock).

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

On arrival at the barriers, the tongue tie fitted to BEAR HERO was replaced.

SMART GIANT shifted out at the start and bumped BEAR HERO which became unbalanced when taken out onto the hindquarters of SIR EAGLES.

LONDON CHINA TOWN began awkwardly.

HI MOLLY and VITAL FLYER were crowded for room at the start between CALIFORNIA CHOICE which shifted out and GOOD BOY BOY which got its head on the side and shifted in.

Passing the 800 Metres, HI MOLLY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of LEELIS STAR.

In the early and middle stages, VITAL FLYER got its head on the side and hung out and near the 400 Metres became badly unbalanced in its action and lost ground.

Acting on an assurance from Trainer C W Chang that VITAL FLYER would not race again this season, no further action was taken other than a warning was placed on the horse.

After the race, A Suborics reported that CALIFORNIA CHOICE made an audible respiratory noise over the final 300 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of CALIFORNIA CHOICE after the race revealed that the horse was distressed and an endoscopic examination confirmed the horse to be a roarer which had previously been reported.

Fore being allowed to race again, CALIFORNIA CHOICE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of HAWTHORNE after the race did not show any significant findings.

BEAR HERO, BLAZE KING and LONDON CHINA TOWN were sent for sampling.
