Recap by phillip woo

Alp's Glory made his run third from the rear and on the fence, cornered in three deep and quickened well to take control 50m out from a stopping Gorgeous Life for a maiden win at his 15th start following a stable change to Derek Cruz. Firming favourite Gorgeous Life was rated a handy fifth and one off the fence, worked to the lead at the 200m and was running on empty 100m out. Rocket Proud was never on the track in midfield from gate 14, rounded the final bend with two wider out and kept grinding away to hold Dr Union for third. It was a huge effort in defeat and he's certainly a winning chance if he remains at this level. Dr Union travelled midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend five wide and kept plugging away. Mega Posh made some ground late without menacing and will be looking for longer. Metrevelli had to check off a stopping Glittering at the 350m and held his ground passed beaten gallopers. Seize The Day was pestered on the lead by Glittering and Dynamic Cross, and was struggling 150m out. Billion Gains found nothing, despite a drop in grade and a move to blinkers.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (724) - KOWLOON WEST HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400 Meters As the start was effected, METREVELLI lifted its front feet off the ground and began awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, DYNAMIC CROSS shifted in and bumped ALP'S GLORY.

Also shortly after the start, DR UNION, SPEEDY and MEGA POSH raced tight between GORGEOUS LIFE and BILLION GAINS which got its head on the side and shifted out.

After the 1200 Metres, GORGEOUS LIFE shifted away from the heels of SEIZE THE DAY.

Rounding the Home Turn, EPEE DE HUA momentarily raced in restricted room between ROCKET PROUD and GORGEOUS LIFE which shifted out.

Then shortly after entering the Straight, EPEE DE HUA was crowded for room between DR UNION which shifted out and ROCKET PROUD which got its head on the side and lay in.

Shortly after straightening, the saddle of H W Lai (DYNAMIC CROSS) shifted back.

Passing the 400 Metres, METREVELLI was shifted out after being checked away from the heels of GLITTERING which was giving ground abruptly.

The performance of GLITTERING, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, GLITTERING will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Approaching the 200 Metres, EASY TRACK became unbalanced in its action.

Also approaching the 200 Metres, EPEE DE HUA momentarily raced tight inside MEGA POSH which shifted in slightly.

Near the 50 Metres, DR UNION was shifted in away from the heels of GORGEOUS LIFE.

For the majority of the race, DYNAMIC CROSS and ROCKET PROUD travelled wide and without cover.

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

ALP'S GLORY and GORGEOUS LIFE were sent for sampling.
