Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Bobo Dragon travelled sweetly on the lead with the blinkers applied and effortlessly drew clear for an overdue win in a good time. He remains one to follow. Graceful Kingdom settled behind midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with one wider out and ran on steadily to snatch second in the final few metres in an encouraging debut performance. Bullish Boy was three deep until finding cover one off in midfield at the 1,000m, rounded the final bend with three wider out, worked to second at the 150m and was pipped late. Team Work peeled into the clear with one wider out at the 350m and cut back the margin well. Solar Dragon was a bit erratic while rounding the final bend and stayed on OK. Queen Dragon had no answer when popped the question. Fantasy And Gold was yielding ground passing the 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (586)-MEDITERRANEAN SEA HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

The Stewards opened an inquiry into a report by representatives of the Clubs Security Department that BEAR ELITE, a declared runner in this race, had at 1:27 pm been found to be receiving ice treatment, such treatment being contrary to the provisions of Regulation 119 (p) of the Trainers Handbook which states that the use of ice, ice packs or cold water treatment on a horse within two (2) hours prior to the scheduled starting time of the race in which the horse is declared to start is a practice which is strictly prohibited by the Club.

After taking evidence from Mr A T Millard, the trainer of BEAR ELITE, Assistant Trainer W S Yu, stable staff allocated to Mr Millards stable namely Head Lad Y H Cheng and Stables Assistant W C Ip as well as Mr S F Cheung, Assistant Security Manager (Operations) and Mr N H Chow, Senior Security Officer and also in the presence of Dr P Curl, Executive Manager, Veterinary Regulation, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of BEAR ELITE from this race.

The inquiry into this matter was adjourned until a date to be fixed.

Before being allowed to race again, BEAR ELITE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Jockeys T H So (HIGH RETURN) and W M Lai (JADE PIPPO) were each fined a sum of $5,000 for presenting to weigh out for this race with an incorrect saddle cloth [Rule 12(32)].

TEAM WORK was crowded for room on jumping between SOLAR DRAGON and BOBO DRAGON which shifted out.

After this, TEAM WORK, despite being vigorously ridden along, failed to muster speed.

From the outside barrier, SOUTHERN SPRINGS was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 1000 Metres, WAYFOONG TYCOON was hampered when taken in by GRACEFUL KINGDOM (T Berry) which got its head on the side and shifted in.

T Berry was advised to exercise care.

Rounding the Home Turn, SOLAR DRAGON raced tight between BULLISH BOY and JADE PIPPO which shifted out.

After this, SOLAR DRAGON hung in and after the 400 Metres bumped JADE PIPPO, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

SOLAR DRAGON continued to lay in under pressure after this.

In the Straight and particularly in the early part of the Straight, GRACEFUL KINGDOM got its head on the side and hung in.

Throughout the race, HIGH RETURN travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of FANTASY AND GOLD and QUEEN DRAGON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BOBO DRAGON and GRACEFUL KINGDOM were sent for sampling.
