Recap by phillip woo

Veteran Ever Beauty has ended the season in fine form with a third success from his past four runs over this course and distance. He had to work to eventually cross to lead at the 700m, turned the final bend nearly two lengths on top and fought off the challenge of Smart Kids over the final 100m for a narrow win with money coming on late. Favourite Smart Kids made his run along the fence in fourth, came at the leader 100m out and came up just short while narrowly holding off the fast-finishing Gamekeepers for second. Gamekeepers was niggled from a wide gate to occupy a spot worse than midfield and two deep, was shuffled back to third from the rear at the 500m, turned the final bend with three wider out and was finishing up strongly to come up a few head bobs short as a clear-cut third. He should have won and appears to have more upside off his current mark. Friends Of Yan Oi bided his time second from the rear, straightened one off the fence and made a steady bid along the inside to snatch fourth in the final few metres. Ride On The Fire travelled on the back of the speed in second and one off the fence, straightened three deep and was giving way over the final 100m with every chance. He doesn't have the speed to match up in this grade. Emperor Blitz made his run in midfield and two deep, swung the final bend with a couple wider out and made some ground late without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (756) - KINGS FALCON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000 Meters MEGA and FRIENDS OF YAN OI were slow to begin.

After the 800 Metres, EASTERN PROMISE proved difficult to settle, then after the 600 Metres was left racing wide and without cover.

After the 600 Metres, GAMEKEEPERS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of EMPEROR BLITZ.

LIFELINE ELITE got its head up and made the turn after the 600 Metres awkwardly and then made the Home Turn awkwardly.

Approaching the 500 Metres, EASTERN PROMISE became badly unbalanced, lost ground and was taken even wider when bumped by GOLD EDITION which was taken out by EMPEROR BLITZ which shifted away from the heels of PO CHING KING which itself was steadied to avoid the heels of RIDE ON THE FIRE (C K Tong) which shifted in when barely clear.

C K Tong was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground in similar circumstances.

After this, GOLD EDITION was also left racing wide and without cover.

Approaching the 200 Metres, GAMEKEEPERS was shifted out away from the heels of LUCKY RED.

A veterinary inspection of EASTERN PROMISE, GOLD EDITION and PO CHING KING after the race did not show any significant findings.

EVER BEAUTY and SMART KIDS were sent for sampling.
