Recap by phillip woo

Bould Mover kept Oriental Prosper deep on the speed, assumed the lead entering the straight and drew clear under a hand ride to win as he pleased in his first run on the dirt. Turin Champion settled worse than midfield and on the fence, straightened two deep short of room, gained a gap between runners at the 200m and finished up nicely grab second 100m out. Favourite First In Command was caught deep without cover in fifth, cornered in four deep and kept on all right to hold the late surge of Quantum Power for third. Quantum Power was switched off a distant last, swung the final bend widest out with an enormous amount of work ahead of him and was hitting the line well. Tarrega settled midfield and one off the fence, straightened four-to-five deep and kept on one-paced over the last 200m. Oriental Prosper punched the breeze on the lead, cornered two deep in second and was yielding ground over the last 100m. Darpana settled second from the rear and one off the fence, cornered in with two wider out and only kept on passed beaten gallopers. City King settled one-out and one-back in the run, was under pressure while straightening three deep and was stopping 200m out in his first run on the dirt for his new trainer Peter Ng.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (097) - HIGH WEST HANDICAP (Sec 2) - Class 3 - 1200 Meters HONG KONG DANCER and HI MOLLY were slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, QUANTUM POWER was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the 1000 Metres, GLENEALY STAR raced tight inside CITY KING which shifted in when being steadied away from the heels of BOULD MOVER (M Chadwick) which shifted in when not properly clear.

M Chadwick was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

Making the turn near the 700 Metres, CITY KING (T Angland) got its head on the side and hung in, resulting in GLENEALY STAR being crowded for room.

T Angland reported that CITY KING continued to hang in badly for the remainder of the race.

After the 500 Metres, TURIN CHAMPION was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CITY KING.

Then rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, TURIN CHAMPION was again awkwardly placed close to the heels of CITY KING when held up for clear running behind that horse.

Near the 250 Metres, DARPANA was crowded for room when improving into tight running between MASTER RIO and HI MOLLY which shifted out.

Throughout the race, FIRST IN COMMAND travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, K C Leung stated that after being held up for clear running behind CITY KING rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, he positioned TURIN CHAMPION to take advantage of a run between CITY KING and FIRST IN COMMAND were it to develop shortly after entering the Straight.

He said at the same time he was aware that a run may be available for TURIN CHAMPION to the outside of FIRST IN COMMAND and inside TARREGA.

He said for this reason he kept his options open in the early part of the Straight.

He said near the 250 Metres CITY KING got its head on the side and hung in, resulting in a clear run developing between that horse and FIRST IN COMMAND.

He said consequently he shifted TURIN CHAMPION in from behind FIRST IN COMMAND to improve into this run.

He added that whilst this run had been available earlier in the Straight, he did not believe it was fully available and for this reason he did not improve immediately between those two horses.

K C Leung was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must, wherever possible, ensure that he avails himself of chances to improve at the earliest opportunity.

A veterinary inspection of CITY KING after the race revealed that the horse had blood present at its left nostril.

The Veterinary Officer said an endoscopic examination confirmed the horse to be a bleeder.

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

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

A veterinary inspection of HONG KONG DANCER after the race did not show any significant findings.
