Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Humongus travelled ahead of midfield and one off the fence after jumping alertly, straightened six deep and quickened nicely to take control 50m out. O'Reilly Magic settled behind midfield and on the rails, came one off at the halfway point, swung the final bend widest out and finished up well. Watch First bided his time second from the rear and two deep, turned the final bend with two wider out and eventually got going late. Redoute's Fortune was never better than three deep in the run near the speed, worked to the lead at the 600m and grudgingly gave way late. Euphemism sat one off in second, worked to the lead three deep at the 250m and came up one-paced over the last 100m. Mr Speedy took the sit on the back of the speed in fourth after leading early on, straightened three deep and only held his ground in the dash to the line. Danesouth went forward from a wide gate to lead passing the winner's post for the first time, set a steady clip while handing up the lead at the 600m and was struggling soon after straightening. Telecom Gogo was held up and never tested in the straight run in the two-deep position after travelling third from the rear and along the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (047) - WONG CHUK HANG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800 Meters SABINA was withdrawn on 25.9.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter REDOUTE'S FORTUNE (W C Marwing).

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

FANTASTISCH began very awkwardly and shortly after the start shifted out, resulting in REDOUTE'S FORTUNE and FULL SPIRIT, both of which were slow to begin, being hampered.

TELECOM GOGO was slow to begin.

From a wide barrier, MIRAGE R was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After being crossed by DANESOUTH near the 1200 Metres, MR SPEEDY proved very difficult to settle and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of DANESOUTH for some distance.

After the 1000 Metres, FULL STAR was steadied away from the heels of MR SPEEDY which continued to be awkwardly placed close to the heels of DANESOUTH.

REDOUTE'S FORTUNE travelled wide and without cover until after the 800 Metres at which time it improved its position to be racing in the lead.

Near the 400 Metres, HUMONGUS was inconvenienced when disappointed for running between DANESOUTH and MR SPEEDY which shifted out.

Near the 200 Metres, TELECOM GOGO was hampered when disappointed for running between DANESOUTH and MR SPEEDY, both of which shifted ground.

After this, TELECOM GOGO was not able to obtain clear running and consequently was not fully tested.

At the entrance to the Straight, WATCH FIRST, which lay in under pressure in the Straight, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HUMONGUS and then approaching the 200 Metres was again awkwardly placed outside the heels of that horse.

HUMONGUS and O'REILLY MAGIC were sent for sampling.
