Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, Able Magic was patiently ridden third from the rear and two deep, cornered in three deep, was held up at the 250m, shifted into the clear underneath Twin Turbo at the 150m and got up 40m out for a determined second straight success with a return to Class Four. He wasn't favoured by the dawdling pace and appears to have another win in him. One Of A Kind recovered quickly after a slow break to settle midfield and on the rails after 100m, moved to fourth approaching the 600m, straightened two deep, shifted off a tiring Solar Boy at the 200m, briefly poked his head in front at the 50m and found one better on the day. He's ready to win. Twin Turbo settled second and one off the fence, worked to the lead at the 200m and came up one-paced over the final 50m. Well-punted late, How Speedy came up flat in the last 150m with a step up in trip. He may be better suited by the 1,200m. Magical Beam made some late progress and he hasn't gone too badly in both starts. He will be hard to beat with a drop in grade.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (189) - CHEVALIER INSURANCE AND INVESTMENT HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400 Meters After being loaded, NO TIES reared and sat down, resulting in its rider, H W Lai, being dislodged.

NO TIES was removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

Before being allowed to race again, NO TIES will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

ONE OF A KIND began awkwardly.

WINNING BEAR was slow to begin and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of HOW SPEEDY which shifted out abruptly after beginning very awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, DILIGENT III was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Making the turn at the 800 Metres, ABLE MAGIC got its head up and proved difficult to settle when awkwardly placed close to the heels of WINNING BEAR.

ONE OF A KIND had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and after the 300 Metres was steadied away from the heels of SOLAR BOY which shifted out when commencing to give ground.

After the 200 Metres, ABLE MAGIC got its head up when being shifted in away from the heels of TWIN TURBO to obtain clear running.

After this, ABLE MAGIC and ONE OF A KIND raced tight inside TWIN TURBO which shifted in under pressure.

This resulted in ONE OF A KIND and ABLE MAGIC bumping passing the 150 Metres.

In the Straight, NO TIES got it head on the side and lay in.

Throughout the race, SPECTACULAR AWARD and WALK ON GRASS travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, W C Marwing reported that ELEGANT FRAMES coughed on a number of occasions on pulling up.

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

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

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on NO TIES at the request of Trainer C S Shum.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in the horse's trachea.

Also after the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that SPECTACULAR AWARD had lost its left hind plate.

ELEGANT FRAMES, ABLE MAGIC and ONE OF A KIND were sent for sampling.
