Recap by phillip woo

Absolute Fantasy was perfectly positioned in fourth and one off the fence, worked to the lead four deep at the 120m and kept on well for the win. He'll find it harder with a return to Class Three though. Favourite Expectator settled midfield and one off the fence, bumped while cornering with two wider out and was running on steadily late to edge out Travel Guide in the final few strides for second. Travel Guide sat outside the leader All Lucky, assumed the lead three deep at the 200m and gave way grudgingly late. Snitzel Kid moved to third at the 140m and lost a placing in the final few metres. Ho Wongchoy was patiently ridden third from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend with three wider out, shifted deepest on the course at the 200m and was running on reasonably well when the race was all but over. Riyadh bumped with Expectator while cornering with one wider out and made only a mild bid late.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (217) - LONGINES INTERNATIONAL JOCKEYS' CHAMPIONSHIP (HANDICAP)- 2ND LEG (Sec 2) - Class 4 - 1650 Meters JADE PINS was slow to begin.

SNITZEL KID shifted out at the start and bumped EXPECTATOR.

From wide barriers, NORDIC STAR and KING ON EARTH were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Rounding the Home Turn, SNITZEL KID shifted out, resulting in EXPECTATOR being taken out and making contact with RIYADH which became unbalanced.

After this, EXPECTATOR got its head on the side and for some distance raced tight inside RIYADH.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of ALL LUCKY, Z Purton stated that after being able to obtain the lead without having to make too much use of the horse, ALL LUCKY was then taken on in front by TRAVEL GUIDE.

He said with TRAVEL GUIDE racing directly to his outside, ALL LUCKY would not settle and travelled too keenly throughout the race.

He said because of this ALL LUCKY was not able to finish off its race.

A veterinary inspection of ALL LUCKY after the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on AUSPICIOUS START at the request of Trainer T K Ng.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination confirmed the horse to be a roarer.

ABSOLUTE FANTASY and EXPECTATOR were sent for sampling.
