Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Beauty King enjoyed an uncontested lead through solid fractions, turned the final bend nearly two lengths clear and kept finding to hold Riyadh for the win. He's done well following a move to the Peter Ho-Leung stable three starts back. Riyadh settled midfield and on the rails, straightened three deep and ran on nicely to secure second 100m out in a pleasing effort for his new trainer Michael Chang Chun-wai. Fancied late, Flying Elite enjoyed the gun run, cornered in four deep, worked to second at the 200m and was no match for the top pair in an improved effort with a step up in distance. Plain Red Banner bided his time behind midfield and on the rails, stayed to the fence upon straightening and ran on steadily late to fill the First-4 as the late-fancied favourite. Victory Ide Say made his run outside Riyadh, rallied five deep upon straightening, ducked underneath a tiring Travel Guide at the 300m and made some ground late without menacing. Dragon Bachelor made his run fourth and one off the rails, turned the final bend with three wider out and kept on one-paced under the left whip over the final 200m. Fay Deep settled fourth from the rear and between runners, swung the final bend with two wider out and kept on passed beaten rivals.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (540)-EAST POINT HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

PLAIN RED BANNER shifted out at the start and bumped VICTORY IDE SAY and in doing so became unbalanced and knuckled over.

After this, PLAIN RED BANNER was vigorously ridden along to obtain a more forward position, however, failed to muster speed.

From wide barriers, MAGNUMOUS and LORD DRAGON were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after entering the Straight, VICTORY IDE SAY was shifted to the inside of TRAVEL GUIDE when disappointed for running between that horse and DRAGON BACHELOR.

Throughout the race, TRIUMPHANT WAY travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, Z Purton reported that TRAVEL GUIDE was making an abnormal respiratory noise from the 800 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of TRAVEL GUIDE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that FLYING ELITE had lost its left front plate.

Also after the race, T Angland stated that LORD DRAGON lay out throughout the race, failed to respond when placed under pressure and, in his opinion, raced flat.

A veterinary inspection of LORD DRAGON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of FAY DEEP immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

PLAIN RED BANNER, BEAUTY KING and RIYADH were sent for sampling.
