Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Fiery Whisperer was taken straight to the front from gate four, set a steady clip while pressured on his outside by second favourite Expedite, cornered a half-length on top and kept repelling the challenge of that rival to prevail for a second win from three outings, despite the rise in trip. At two years of age, he has a nice future. Expedite rolled forward to sit outside the leader, straightened three deep and couldn't pull back the margin. Fishking Emperor settled at the rear, turned the final bend three-to-four deep and kept on well to overhaul Naughty Baby for third. Naughty Baby moved to midfield along the inside at the 800m after a tardy break, straightened one off the fence, shifted into the clear at the 300m under the right whip, worked to third at the 200m and condition gave way late. He'll come on further for this run and will be winning races next campaign. Riyadh made some steady ground in an encouraging debut over 1,400m. Wild Force was later confirmed to be a bleeder.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (740) - TAK SHING PLATE - Griffin Race - 1400 Meters GOAL AND GOLD began awkwardly.

NAUGHTY BABY was slow to begin.

HEARTS KEEPER was crowded for room at the start between EXPEDITE and FIERY WHISPERER which shifted out.

In this incident, EXPEDITE became unbalanced after making contact with HEARTS KEEPER.

FISHKING EMPEROR was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 100 Metres, the whip of W Pike (MIZZEN GREY) was knocked from his grasp by the whip of T Angland (GOAL AND GOLD).

After the race, it was noted that WILD FORCE had blood at its left nostril.

The Veterinary Officer said an endoscopic examination confirmed the horse to have bled.

FIERY WHISPERER and EXPEDITE were sent for sampling.
