Recap by phillip woo

Military Attack rushed forward out deep around midfield to assume the lead 1,400m from Beauty Lead, cornered a length on top and kept finding to defy a big weight for back-to-back wins. Aomen settled a handy fifth along the rails, stayed nailed to the fence upon straightening and finished up nicely to get into the Quinella spot 100m out. Let Me Handle It punched the breeze up on the speed after breaking alertly from gate 12, cornered in three deep and kept on gamely. Pure Champion was posted three deep in fourth or fifth and stayed on well to just miss a placing. Fay Fay pushed into the clear with one wider out and was hitting the line with purpose over the final 100m. Favourite, Zaidan shifted out of traffic with four wider out at the 400m and got going late to make it close for a placing. Plunged late, Beauty Lead enjoyed the box-seat run and kept on one-paced over the final 200m with every chance. Irian settled three around midfield, rounded the final bend six deep and kept on evenly under pressure over the final 200m. Willie Cazals was switched off at the back from a wide gate, swung the final bend widest out and only kept on passed beaten rivals.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (487)-THE PREMIER PLATE (HANDICAP) - Hong Kong Group Three - 1800Metres

LIBERATOR and IRIAN bumped at the start.

After this, LIBERATOR had to be ridden along aggressively to obtain a more forward position.

TAKNAM was slow to begin.

From a wide barrier, WILLIE CAZALS was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

For the majority of the race, PURE CHAMPION travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, T Clark (AOMEN) stated that it had been anticipated that BEAUTY LEAD would be ridden to lead and therefore, from barrier 3, he should obtain the position on the rail behind that horse.

He said after obtaining this position in the early stages, AOMEN was obliged to race further back in the field than had been anticipated after BEAUTY LEAD allowed MILITARY ATTACK to cross into the lead after the 1400 Metres.

When questioned, M L Yeung stated that he had been instructed to take up a forward position on BEAUTY LEAD, but not necessarily to lead.

He said accordingly he allowed BEAUTY LEAD to obtain the lead in the early stages inside LET ME HANDLE IT.

He said when he observed MILITARY ATTACH being ridden into a forward position after the 1400 Metres, he elected to steady BEAUTY LEAD and allow that horse to cross so as to provide BEAUTY LEAD with cover to help the horse relax.

He said in the Straight BEAUTY LEAD finished off the race only one-paced.

He added that prior to mounting BEAUTY LEAD, the owner of the horse did make the point to him that no leader had been successful in the races run to that time which he believed reinforced that BEAUTY LEAD did not necessarily have to lead.

Trainer A S Cruz confirmed that he had instructed M L Yeung to take up a forward position and it was available for him to either lead or take the box seat in today's race.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that MILITARY ATTACK had lost its right front plate.

ZAIDAN, MILITARY ATTACK and AOMEN were sent for sampling.
