Recap by phillip woo

Real Dragon settled ahead midfield and on the rails, stayed to the paint upon straightening, hit the front 200m out and kept up a good gallop to make it three on the trot over a mile at both courses. Magnanimous made his run second from the rear, rallied five wide upon straightening and finished up nicely to grab second in the final 10m. Golden Osmanthus was challenged by Charmgold for the lead at the 800m after reaching the front entering the first bend one off from Fortune Bravo, straightened narrowly on top and kept on gamely to just hold Dragon Pins at a price for third. Dragon Pins was switched off a the rear from a tricky gate, turned the final bend widest out and was getting going late to make it close for third with a suitable step back up to the mile. Brilliant Chariot settled fourth from the rear and along the fence, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept on all right without threatening the placegetters. Fortune Bravo was up vying for the lead before settling third and one off at the 850m, loomed up on the leaders four deep at the 350m and kept on one-paced over the last 100m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (144) - THE HONG KONG GOLF CLUB CENTENARY CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 4 - 1650 Meters Shortly after the start, BRILLIANT CHARIOT was crowded for room between INTELLECTUALSTRIDE which began awkwardly and shifted out and TRAVEL GUIDE which was taken in by HONG KONG FAT which in turn was taken in by SUPER BRAND.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, SUPER BRAND was steadied away from the heels of FORTUNE BRAVO (O Doleuze) which shifted in when not quite clear.

O Doleuze was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, BRILLIANT CHARIOT was steadied away from the heels of REAL DRAGON which shifted in.

Near the 1300 Metres, SUPER BRAND momentarily raced tight between REAL DRAGON and SUNNY MORE which shifted in momentarily.

After the 1200 Metres, CHARMGOLD was left racing wide and without cover and near the 1000 Metres was allowed to stride forward into a more forward position closer to the rail.

Near the 700 Metres, HONG KONG FAT was left racing wide and without cover.

After the 600 Metres, MAGNANIMOUS was checked away from the heels of BRILLIANT CHARIOT.

After the 500 Metres, INTELLECTUALSTRIDE and DRAGON PINS raced tight as INTELLECTUALSTRIDE shifted out from behind SUPER BRAND.

Then rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, INTELLECTUALSTRIDE was badly held up for clear running behind HONG KONG FAT.

Near the 250 Metres, TRAVEL GUIDE was checked when disappointed for running between INTELLECTUALSTRIDE which continued to be awkwardly placed close to the heels of HONG KONG FAT and SUNNY MORE which shifted out slightly when giving ground.

Near the 150 Metres, INTELLECTUALSTRIDE was struck across the head by the whip of T Clark (HONG KONG FAT).

When struck by the whip, INTELLECTUALSTRIDE (W C Marwing) reacted adversely and became badly unbalanced, resulting in its rider, W C Marwing, becoming unbalanced in the saddle.

When INTELLECTUALSTRIDE reacted adversely in this incident, the head of INTELLECTUALSTRIDE made contact with the right arm of T Clark, causing that rider to momentarily stop riding his horse.

W C Marwing stated that having regard to the manner in which INTELLECTUALSTRIDE reacted to this incident, he eased the horse down over the concluding stages.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that MAGNANIMOUS had lost its left front plate.

A veterinary inspection of INTELLECTUALSTRIDE, TRAVEL GUIDE and HONG KONG FAT after the race did not show any significant findings.

FORTUNE BRAVO, REAL DRAGON and MAGNANIMOUS were sent for sampling.
