Recap by phillip woo

Ensemble's key to victory was a well-executed ride from jockey Olivier Doleuze. He quickly came across the face of the field from an inside gate to lead and then take the sit in third on the stands side at the 600m, reclaimed the front 250m out and held on gamely for a narrow win at his second start of the campaign. Short-priced favourite Bundle Of Joy snatched second in a ding-dong battle after a prominent run near the center of the course. The winner had a fitness edge on him. Roman Legend raced to the front two off the stands side at the 600m and kept on gamely when headed to make it a thriller at the finish. Big Four was on his lonesome on the far side and behind midfield at one point before finishing up well for a non-threatening fourth. Meridian Treasure settled midfield and two off the outside rails and got going inside the final 100m to make it tight for fourth in an improved second-up effort. Jaeger Bomb got going in the last 100m after settling midfield and just ahead and to the outside of Big Four.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (047)-SHANGHAI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

BIG FOUR was crowded for room at the start between ORIENTAL PROSPER and ENSEMBLE which shifted in.

PEARL STAR was slow to begin.

LIFELINE ELITE began very awkwardly, shifted out and in doing so bumped NOBODY BUT YOU.

Shortly after the start, NOBODY BUT YOU was then steadied when crowded for room between SCRAPPER WELL and LIFELINE ELITE.

Approaching the 800 Metres, ROMAN LEGEND was eased away from the heels of ENSEMBLE (O Doleuze) which shifted out when not quite clear.

O Doleuze was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

In this incident, ROMAN LEGEND shifted in and bumped BUNDLE OF JOY.

Then passing the 700 Metres, SKY MASCOT commenced to prove difficult to settle and got its head up when being checked away from the heels of ENSEMBLE which was steadied at this time.

O Doleuze was advised to ensure that he does not steady the pace too abruptly.

O Doleuze was spoken to regarding him having raised his whip arm above the height of his shoulder.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on LIFELINE ELITE at the request of Trainer A T Millard.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, LIFELINE ELITE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

ENSEMBLE and BUNDLE OF JOY were sent for sampling.
