Recap by phillip woo

Raging favourite Garlic Boy eventually settled third from the rear and two-to-three deep in the run, swung the final bend widest out and showed a good turn of foot to take control 150m out for a convincing win off a big weight. He was having his second start against an ordinary field, but has potential to head higher. Plunged late, Floral Man enjoyed the box-seat run, shot to the lead at the 250m and kept on well to be a clear second in a much-improved second-up performance. Riyadh proved difficult to settle at the rear with Ambassadorship underneath him, rounded the final bend with one wider out and finished up nicely to grab third ahead of Ambassadorship, who was another ridden along to hold his position for a good part along the fence, peeled into the clear with two wider out at the top of the straight and was hitting the line well in a better performance of his own after a step up in distance. Alp's Glory travelled three deep, before circling the field at the 1,000m to settled midfield without cover, cornered in with three wider out and kept on OK after the hard trip. He's a danger with a return to Class Five next time out with two runs under his belt. Young Talent made some progress without menacing, while Fun Faster came back to the field at the 200m and Giants Serapis gave way after being steadied between runners 300m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (056) - NANJING HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400 Meters On arrival at the Start, RIYADH had its left front plate refitted.

RIYADH was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

MIZZEN GREY was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, OCEAN BRIGHT was crowded for room between ULTIMATE POWER and YOUNG TALENT which shifted in abruptly at the start.

From wide barriers, RIYADH and AMBASSADORSHIP were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

For some distance in the early stages, FUN FASTER proved very difficult to settle and over-raced.

Passing the 1000 Metres, RIYADH got its head up and raced ungenerously when momentarily crowded for room inside GARLIC BOY.

Then passing the 900 Metres, RIYADH was steadied away from the heels of GARLIC BOY (T Angland) which shifted in when not properly clear.

T Angland was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in future.

Approaching the 900 Metres, AMBASSADORSHIP got its head up on a number of occasions and proved very difficult to settle when being steadied away from the heels of OCEAN BRIGHT.

Near the 300 Metres, GIANTS SERAPIS was crowded for room between ULTIMATE POWER and ALP'S GLORY, both of which shifted ground.

Also near the 300 Metres, M Chadwick (ALP'S GLORY) momentarily dropped his right rein.

After the 300 Metres, Apprentice C Y Ho (YOUNG TALENT) dropped his right rein.

Apprentice Ho was then not able to properly regather the use of this rein after it became entangled around his right hand.

Near the 250 Metres, AMBASSADORSHIP was shifted to the outside of RIYADH after being disappointed for running between that horse and YOUNG TALENT which shifted out.

OCEAN BRIGHT was not able to obtain clear running until approaching the 100 Metres.

Throughout the race, GIANTS SERAPIS travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Surgeon reported that GIANTS SERAPIS had blood present at its left nostril and an endoscopic examination confirmed it to be a bleeder.

GARLIC BOY and FLORAL MAN were sent for sampling.
