Recap by phillip woo

Short-priced favourite Vital Gold held the rails in third, came one off upon straightening, worked to the lead 200m out and repelled the challenge of Circuit Star over the last 150m for a narrow second win from his past three starts. Circuit Star bided his time four back along the paint, stayed to the inside upon straightening and lost out in a ding-dong battle. Distill settled third from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend widest out and was running on nicely to just collar Hong Kong Dancer for a placing. The latter settled along the rails in fifth, pushed into the clear four-to-five deep upon straightening and stayed on reasonably well with late-market action, despite the step up in class. Speedygonzalez travelled one-out, one-back in the run, rounded the final bend with three wider out and kept plugging away late to just miss a placing. You Know I Win got comfortable three back and one off the rails, straightened with one deeper out and made some headway to go close without menacing. Alpha Grand cornered narrowly on top from Emperor Claudius after setting even fractions and was stopping badly passing the 200m. Absolute Fantasy passed a vet test at the start, but never was travelling after a deep run in midfield and was eased down a long ways out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (618)-TAI HANG HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

After being loaded, SPIRIT SOARING became fractious and after kicking out got its both hind legs over the back gates.

SPIRIT SOARING was removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said the horse had sustained abrasions to both hind stifles and had blood at the mouth and as such was not suitable to race.

Accordingly, SPIRIT SOARING was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

ABSOLUTE FANTASY, which was in the stall adjoining SPIRIT SOARING, also became fractious and kicked out at the back gates.

ABSOLUTE FANTASY was also removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

Before being allowed to race again, SPIRIT SOARING will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

HOLY MAC began awkwardly and shortly after the start was steadied when crowded for room between DISTILL and CIRCUIT STAR which shifted out after being bumped by EMPEROR CLAUDIUS.

From the outside barrier, HO HO LIFE was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Y T Cheng (ABSOLUTE FANTASY) momentarily lost the use of his right iron at the start.

Despite being ridden along, ABSOLUTE FANTASY then failed to muster speed and throughout the race travelled wide and without cover before commencing to give ground from the 700 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of ABSOLUTE FANTASY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had lost its left hind plate.

The performance of ABSOLUTE FANTASY, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, ABSOLUTE FANTASY will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Passing the 1300 Metres, SPEEDYGONZALEZ was momentarily crowded for room inside EMPEROR CLAUDIUS which shifted in.

Near the 200 Metres, HONG KONG DANCER shifted in and bumped ALPHA GRAND.

Over the concluding stages, CIRCUIT STAR raced tight inside VITAL GOLD.

O Doleuze, the rider of VITAL GOLD, was spoken to regarding making physical contact with D Whyte (CIRCUIT STAR) after the winning post.
