Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite True Courage settled fifth and between runners, straightened four deep, swept to the front 100m out and held off the late surge of D Day Super. D Day Super settled behind midfield and two deep, got into the clear six deep at 200m and finished up willingly for a photo finish. Late-fancied favourite Croesus settled midfield and one off the fence, rounded the final bend five wide, drifted into the clear at the 250m and flashed home to overhaul Jazzy Feeling in the final few metres. Newcomer Jazzy Feeling settled third from the rear and along the inside, shifted four deep soon after straightening, lost a placing in the final few strides. He'll win in no time. Mr Award was posted three deep without cover outside True Courage, swung the final bend five wide and kept grinding away late without menacing. Lucky Red enjoyed the box-seat run, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept on evenly over the final 150m. Secret Of Winning was hard ridden to lead, cornered a length on top and was coming back to the field over the final 150m. Golden Bauhinia settled worse than midfield and three deep, swung the final bend with one wider out and only kept on past beaten rivals. Po Ching King sat outside leader in second, cornered four deep, stopping badly at the 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (354)-SHUM SHUI PO HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Metres SECRET OF WINNING and NATURAL FLAME began awkwardly.

CROESUS shifted out at the start and bumped GOLDEN BAUHINIA.

At the 600 Metres, CROESUS was hampered when steadied away from the heels of TRUE COURAGE which at this time was awkwardly placed inside the heels of PO CHING KING and racing tight inside MR AWARD.

When CROESUS was steadied, it shifted in, resulting in ALWAYS WELL being crowded for room.

JAZZY FEELING and D DAY SUPER, which were following, were severely hampered and GOLDEN BAUHINIA, which was following CROESUS, was also hampered in consequence.

When ALWAYS WELL was crowded for room, C K Tong, the rider of that horse, became badly unbalanced in the saddle.

Also at the 600 Metres, CHINA GOOD became badly unbalanced after shifting in and making heavy contact with the running rail.

Passing the 200 Metres, JAZZY FEELING shifted in away from the heels of PO CHING KING to obtain clear running and then passing the 100 Metres was shifted to the inside of TRUE COURAGE to continue improving.

Throughout the race, MR AWARD travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on TRUE COURAGE at the request of Trainer A T Millard.

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

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

A veterinary inspection of PO CHING KING and GOLDEN BAUHINIA after the race did not show any significant findings.

CROESUS, TRUE COURAGE and D DAY SUPER were sent for sampling.
