Recap by phillip woo

Galaxy Prancer was travelling nicely along the fence in fourth, rushed to the lead near the inside at the 300m and edged clear as the firming favourite. Flying Unicorn punched through to eventually lead along the rails rounding the first bend from My Home Town, cornered a half-length on top and kept on nicely when headed. Noble Boy made his run fourth from the rear and three deep with cover, swung the final bend widest out and ran on nicely to collar My Home Town for a placing. My Home Town took the sit one off after leading early on, straightened four deep and only lost a placing in the final bound. Happy Champion settled second from the rear and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out and was getting going late without menacing. Specked late, St Yazin was a handy fifth and one off the rails, turned the final bend with three wider out and kept on one-paced over the final 200m with every chance. Mega Champion had no cover three deep on the speed, swung the final corner with one wider out and was giving ground passing the 200m. Winning Apex made his run behind midfield and one off the rails, failed to respond when coming under immense pressure at the 600m and never a danger.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (635)-SHAN PUI RIVER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

CHEERS JOY, Standby Declared Starter, was withdrawn on 20.5.13 by order of the Stewards (stable transfer).

Just prior to the start being effected, MIGHTY K became fractious, lifted its front feet off the ground and got its head up, consequently losing a significant amount of ground.

Before being allowed to race again, MIGHTY K will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial.

From wide barriers, RIO WILLIE and NOBLE BOY were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

For some distance after the 1100 Metres, HAPPY CHAMPION got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed close to the heels of WINNING APEX.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, WINNING APEX raced tight between NINTH GALAXY and LEOS PRIDE which shifted out slightly.

Approaching the 100 Metres, HAPPY CHAMPION, which was closing off the race, raced in restricted room when improving between MEGA CHAMPION which was giving ground and ST YAZIN which got its head on the side and shifted out slightly.

Throughout the race, MEGA CHAMPION travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of WINNING APEX immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the Veterinary Officer reported that he was not able to conduct an endoscopic examination of the horse.

A veterinary inspection of LEOS PRIDE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GALAXY PRANCER and FLYING UNICORN were sent for sampling.
