Recap by phillip woo

In a leaders' dominated race, Soldier parked himself nicely one off the rails with the late-fancied Dashing Super, narrowly put his head in front at the 200m and kept on gamely to score. Dashing Super held the rails while just shading Soldier for the lead, cornered a head on top and went down fighting. Spurs On enjoyed the box-seat run through a sedate pace, shifted out three deep upon straightening and ran on steadily. King Haradasun settled midfield and one off the rails, straightened with one wider out and got going late when the race was all over. Man And Ming made his run one-out, one-back, turned the final corner four deep and kept on evenly over the final 100m with every chance. Favourite Travel Smart settled second from the rear and one off the rails within five lengths, rounded the final bend widest out and never fired.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (694)-BEIJING CLUBHOUSE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1600Metres

SUPER TEAM and KING HARADASUN bumped at the start.

For some distance between the 1100 Metres and the 700 Metres, SUPER TEAM proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

In the early part of the Straight, SPURS ON was held up for clear running behind SOLDIER.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of TRAVEL SMART, O Doleuze stated that after beginning only fairly, he had to ride his mount along for a short distance after the start in order to have it travel as close as possible to the main body of the field.

He said when the pace slowed in the middle stages, TRAVEL SMART travelled well and after following KING HARADASUN throughout the race, he shifted TRAVEL SMART to the outside of that horse rounding the Home Turn.

He added due to the manner in which TRAVEL SMART was racing, he expected it to quicken well, however, despite being ridden along the horse did not respond to his riding and was disappointing.

He said TRAVEL SMART is only having its first preparation this season and, in his opinion, should improve with maturity.

A veterinary inspection of TRAVEL SMART immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that KING HARADASUN had shifted its left front plate.

TRAVEL SMART, SOLDIER and DASHING SUPER were sent for sampling.
