Recap by phillip woo

Gracytom was nicely rated fifth along the fence, straightened three deep and finished up well to run down Fastalot in the final stride. He had a clear fitness edge on his rival Fastalot, who was stepping up for the first time this season. Fastalot was prominently ridden in fourth and one off the fence, cornered in four deep, swept to the front 200m out and came up just short in an improved performance following throat surgery in May. Megabucks settled midfield and along the fence, shifted into the clear six deep and made a nice bid to easily grab third 100m out. Seize The Day ran on well to fill the frame in a better effort with a move to visors. Specked late, Fun And Fast made some progress late passed beaten gallopers. Favourite Fairy Dragon was hard ridden to take up the running on the speed with Dashing Ace on his outside, turned the final bend a half-length on top and was yielding ground over the last 200m. Dashing Ace was stopping 150m out.

Race One: (101) - TIU KENG LENG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1000 Meters FUN AND FAST was slow to begin and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of GRACYTOM.

BARCELONA TOO was slow to begin.

HEY HA MASTER shifted in at the start, resulting in CREATIVE UNION being crowded for room outside MEGABUCKS.

In this incident, MEGABUCKS became unbalanced after being bumped by CREATIVE UNION.

From the outside barrier, BEAUTIFUL SCENERY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after entering the Straight, FUN AND FAST was shifted in away from the heels of MEGABUCKS after being held up for clear running behind that horse.

Near the 50 Metres, FUN AND FAST was accidentally struck over the head by the whip of C K Tong (DASHING ACE).

Close to the finishing line, FUN AND FAST was momentarily steadied away from the heels of MEGABUCKS which shifted in.

For the majority of the race, CREATIVE UNION travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of FAIRY DRAGON after the race did not show any significant findings.
