Recap by phillip woo

Dragon Choice settled fifth and two off the rails with cover from a wide gate, rallied five deep upon straightening and got up in the final few strides in a ding-dong finish for the win. Young Happy made his run second from the rear and on the rails, improved his position entering the straight with four behind him, straightened four deep, switched outside Gorgeous Life at the 250m, hit the front 60m out and was pipped in the shadows of the post. Early favourite, Bernard's Choice travelled in midfield and just off the rails, loomed a winning chance at the 100m and found a couple too good in the late stages, despite a drop in grade. Asmodai dictated the running and held on gamely for fourth. Late-fancied favourite, Cosmo One straightened three deep without a shot when held up behind Just Follow Me, obtained a clear run 200m out and ran on steadily late. Gorgeous Life was giving ground under a left whip passing the 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (655)-NEW TERRITORIES HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

On arrival at the Start, C Y Ho expressed concern over the action of PILLOWIN.

PILLOWIN was examined by the Veterinary Officer who, after the necessary consultations, said the horse was suitable to race.

INFINITE COURAGE, which was leaning on the inside of its stall, began awkwardly and shortly after the start, from a wide barrier, was taken across behind runners.

In the early and middle stages, DIAMOND KNIGHT proved difficult to settle and got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of BERNARDS CHOICE.

Making the first turn after the 900 Metres, COSMO ONE got its head on the side and hung out, resulting in TREASURE MAN being hampered and taken wider.

Near the 700 Metres, PILLOWIN raced tight inside BERNARDS CHOICE.

Rounding the Home Turn, JUST FOLLOW ME and DIAMOND KNIGHT hung out.

COSMO ONE was badly held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and passing the 300 Metres was steadied when disappointed for running between JUST FOLLOW ME and GORGEOUS LIFE.

PILLOWIN, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

After this, COSMO ONE remained held up and was unable to obtain clear running until passing the 200 Metres.

At the 100 Metres, DRAGON CHOICE raced tight between YOUNG HAPPY and BERNARDS CHOICE which got its head on the side and shifted in slightly.

In this incident, DRAGON CHOICE and BERNARDS CHOICE bumped, resulting in BERNARDS CHOICE becoming unbalanced.

Over the concluding stages, KING OF THE DAY raced tight inside JUST FOLLOW ME.

Throughout the race, GORGEOUS LIFE travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that KING OF THE DAY had lost its left front plate and that JUST FOLLOW ME had lost its right front plate.

A veterinary inspection of DIAMOND KNIGHT and INFINITE COURAGE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

COSMO ONE, DRAGON CHOICE and YOUNG HAPPY were sent for sampling.
