Recap by phillip woo

Flying China settled a distant last, rounded the final bend four deep, shifted outside Splendid Guy at the 100m and finished up willingly to get up in the shadows of the post for an overdue victory after placing in four of six earlier starts. Favourite Ambitious Glory was ridden along from a wide gate to settle outside the leader What A Heart, poked his head in front at the 250m, increased his margin to a length at the 100m and was pipped on the line in a pleasing debut effort. Jade Christy made a steady bid three deep upon straightening and dived nicely in the final 20m to snatch third on the line. Splendid Guy was effectively fourth and one off the fence in the run, straightened four deep, worked to third entering the straight and overhauled late for a placing. What A Heart was swamped in the final 50m for a placing. Darpana made some late headway without ever threatening. Favourite Tarrega was handy in the run and three deep but was plodding over the final 200m. Pure Victory was struggling 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (546)-HONG KONG STADIUM HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

ALL MY BENEFIT was slow to begin.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, CAPITAL K, from the outside barrier, failed to muster speed.

B Prebble (TARREGA) dropped his whip shortly after the start.

AMBITIOUS GLORY travelled keenly in the early and middle stages and after the 700 Metres got its head on the side and lay out.

Near the 100 Metres, TARREGA was momentarily shifted away from the heels of FLYING CHINA which shifted out.

For the majority of the race, HAPPY HOMING and TARREGA travelled wide and without cover.

T H So (FLYING CHINA) was reprimanded for raising his whip arm above shoulder height.

A veterinary inspection of SLEDGE HAMMER and TARREGA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of PURE VICTORY including an endoscopic examination immediately following the race showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea and was also found to have sustained a cut to the inside of the right hind fetlock.

Before being allowed to race again, PURE VICTORY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

TARREGA, FLYING CHINA and AMBITIOUS GLORY were sent for sampling.
