Recap by phillip woo

Dars Auto travelled three back and one off the rails, moved forward three deep to fourth approaching the final bend, swept to the front at the 250m and kept up a strong gallop to continue his brilliant form for four wins and four placings from nine starts, despite a rise in grade. Favourite Eagle Power settled midfield and one off the rails, turned the final bend with three wider out and quickened well to secure second in the final 20m. Horse Aplenty was handily along the fence three back and on the rails, came two off to follow the trail of Dars Auto at the 500m, pushed into the clear upon straightening, moved to second at the 100m and had to settle for third in the end. Smiling Watch swung the final bend with one wider out and was hitting the line well. Cheers Joy peaked on his run 100m out. Uwillbeglorious made no impression. Medallist recovered after a sluggish break to settle midfield and came up flat over the final 150m. Helene Fun Star went forward from a wide and was struggling 200m out. Fortune Winner kept pressing forward to eventually lead at the 1,100m, cornered narrowly on top and was stopping 250m out.

JOLLY GOOD was crowded for room at the start between HELENE FUN STAR and SMILING WATCH which shifted out.

After the 1400 Metres, HONEY KING PRAWN commenced to travel keenly and got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of HELENE FUN STAR.

At the 1000 Metres, DARS AUTO and HONEY KING PRAWN were left racing wide and without cover.

After the 1000 Metres, CHEERS JOY commenced to prove very difficult to settle and shifted out away from the heels of I SMELL MONEY and in doing so bumped HORSE APLENTY which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of DARS AUTO.

Shortly after entering the Straight, UWILLBEGLORIOUS was shifted to the inside of MEDALLIST to obtain clear running.

Approaching the 100 Metres, UWILLBEGLORIOUS was shifted in away from the heels of MEDALLIST which shifted in slightly under pressure.

After the 100 Metres, HORSE APLENTY was inconvenienced when taken out by DARS AUTO.

When questioned, Y T Cheng stated that he had been instructed to ride HONEY KING PRAWN in midfield with cover if possible.

He said it was felt that were HONEY KING PRAWN to be ridden along in the early stages to take up a forward position as had been the case previously, the horse may over-race and consequently be unable to finish off its race.

A veterinary inspection of HELENE FUN STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped.
