Recap by phillip woo

Go Baby Go settled second in the run and two off the stands side underneath the leader Amber Sky, worked to the front approaching the 100m, despite losing his whip, and kept on gamely for his sixth win over this 1,000m trip. Amber Sky led as expected one off the outside fence and kept on gamely under pressure to be a clear second. Vital Flyer made his run near the back and one off the grandstand side in a tightly-bunched field and came on late to snatch third from favourite Straight Gold in the final 20m. Straight Gold was prominent along the outside fence and came up flat when popped the question. Best Eleven was on his own on the far side in midfield and only held his ground in the dash to the wire. Fulfil A Wish was at the tail early on amongst runners, improved under pressure to settled midfield at the 600m and was beaten 200m out. Cheetah Boy was handy one off the far side and was struggling a long way out. He's not up to this grade or the minimum distance.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (499)-THE BAUHINIA SPRINT TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Hong Kong Group Three - 1000Metres

VITAL FLYER began awkwardly.

At the 400 Metres, CHEETAH BOY, which was racing with its head on the side, was momentarily crowded for room between FULFIL A WISH and BEST ELEVEN which shifted out.

In this incident, CHEETAH BOY bumped the hindquarters of FULFIL A WISH which became unbalanced.

Near the 150 Metres, the whip of T Angland (GO BABY GO) was knocked from his grasp by the whip of A Suborics (AMBER SKY).

When questioned, Z Purton (STRAIGHT GOLD) stated that near the 700 Metres his mount raced tight outside VITAL FLYER.

He said STRAIGHT GOLD then travelled only fairly and after showing no real turn of foot, finished off the race satisfactorily.

A veterinary inspection of STRAIGHT GOLD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of BEST ELEVEN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

STRAIGHT GOLD, GO BABY BO and AMBER SKY were sent for sampling.
