Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite, Gold Edition settled in the box-seat after jumping alertly, came two off upon straightening and took control 100m out to make it two on the trot following a sprint win at Sha Tin. Nibbled at late in betting, Touch Go settled behind midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend six deep and ran on strongly to take second in the final few metres. Precision King wasn't given an easy time on the lead with Dr Super keeping him honest, cornered nearly two lengths on top and surprisingly kept finding to just hold third with a move to blinkers. Royal Partner made his run third from the rear along the rails, came two off upon straightening and finished up willingly to make it tight for a placing in an improved performance with late-market action. Diamond Elegance peeled into the clear with two wider out upon straightening and made some headway late without menacing.Handed the favourites role before the jump with Gold Edition drifting out late, Newcomer Celestial Century settled thee back and on the rails, cornered four deep, loomed at least a place chance at the 200m and kept on evenly over the last 100m. He'll come on for the run. Bould Mover saved ground behind midfield, cornered in three deep and kept on one-paced over the final 100m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (520)-DONGZHIMEN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

Just prior to the start being effected, JUN HAO became fractious and then as the gates were released reared and lost a substantial amount of ground and consequently trailed the field throughout.

As JUN HAO had been barred for a similar occurrence following its most recent start, Trainer D J Hall was advised that prior to being permitted to race again, JUN HAO will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial on two consecutive occasions.

ROYAL PARTNER began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, KING TAI SING was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the 600 Metres, BOULD MOVER was steadied away from the heels of CELESTIAL CENTURY which was taken in by HAWTHORNE.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, ROYAL PARTNER got its head on the side and lost ground after shifting out across the heels of DIAMOND ELEGANCE.

After the 500 Metres, SUPER PLUS got its head on the side and lay out.

At the entrance to the Straight, KING TAI SING was shifted out away from the heels of SUPER PLUS.

Passing the 300 Metres, HAWTHORNE and CELESTIAL CENTURY raced tight as CELESTIAL CENTURY shifted out to obtain clear running.

The Stewards will interview C W Wong regarding his use of the whip on JUN HAO in the Straight prior to the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 14 April 2013.

A veterinary inspection of DR SUPER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of HAWTHORNE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had lost its right front plate.

CELESTIAL CENTURY, GOLD EDITION and TOUCH GO were sent for sampling.
