Recap by phillip woo

China Good settled behind midfield and on the fence, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished up nicely on the back of a strong pace to get up in the final few metres for the win. He had tipped his hat when running on well in his debut when striking a pace-oriented track. Flashing Guy was ridden along to hold the box seat run, poked his head in front two deep at the 50m and was collared late. Favourite Golden Bauhinia settled three back and on the fence, stayed to the fence upon straightening and overhauled Tomodachi in the final few strides. Tomodachi showed good gate speed to lead on the rails from alley 10 at the 800m, straightened a length on top in the three-deep position and weakened inside the last 100m. It was a big effort off a 15-month absence. Specked late, Secret Of Winning sat second in the run and one off the fence, straightened four deep and only held his ground in the dash to the wire. Touch Well was beaten for speed and made his run at or near the rear, cornered three deep at the tail of the field and came on late between runners at the 100m without ever looking a threat, despite the drop in grade. Well-fancied newcomer True Courage was posted three deep on the speed, straightened five wide and was stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (049) - NAM LONG SHAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Meters GOLDEN BAUHINIA and IDYLLIC WIND made heavy contact at the start.

CHINA GOOD and TOUCH WELL bumped at the start and then a short distance later TOUCH WELL was crowded for room between CHINA GOOD and MARCO POLO which shifted in slightly.

From a wide barrier, STORM UNICORN was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early part of the Straight, IDYLLIC WIND was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SECRET OF WINNING.

Throughout the race, TRUE COURAGE travelled wide and without cover and making the turn near the 500 Metres got its head on the side and lay out.

Close to the finishing line, TOMODACHI was steadied away from the heels of CHINA GOOD which over the concluding stages got its head on the side and shifted in under pressure.

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

A veterinary inspection of TRUE COURAGE after the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in the horse's trachea.

GOLDEN BAUHINIA, CHINA GOOD and FLASHING GUY were sent for sampling.
