Recap by phillip woo

China Delight was patiently ridden at the rear from a wide gate, had two behind him rounding the final bend five deep, shifted further out at the 200m and quickened nicely to take control 100m out for back-to-back wins. He can get away with another at this level. Punted late, Casa Junior settled one-out, one-back, worked to the front four deep at the 200m and was no match for the winner. Fiery Patrol was quietly ridden third from the rear and one off the rails from a wide gate, shifted into the clear with two wider out soon after straightening and finished up willingly to make it close for second. Favourite Super Team settled three back and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with three wider and ran on steadily to just snatch fourth ahead of Billions Gains, who stayed on reasonably well near the inside after making his run second from the rear and along the paint. Firming late, Superking Dragon settled fifth along the rails, took closer order coming to the final bend, straightened one off the rails and was stopping 100m out. Super Brand was softened up on the lead by Hollywood Kiss, who had to work to get there from gate eight, and both weakened inside the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (158)-LYREBIRD HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

MEGA CASTLE was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore foot).

Before being allowed to race again, MEGA CASTLE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

PRONOUNCED HONOUR was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, both BILLION GAINS and CHINA DELIGHT were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After being crossed by HOLLYWOOD KISS at the 1100 Metres, CASA JUNIOR commenced to race keenly and had to be steadied away from the heels of that horse.

From approaching the 200 Metres until approaching the 100 Metres, PRONOUNCED HONOUR was held up for clear running.

After passing the 100 Metres, the whip of K C Leung (FIERY PATROL) was knocked from his grasp by the whip of J Moreira (SUPER TEAM).

Throughout the race, RAINBOW SEEKER travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

Trainer L Ho advised that when ridden in a forward position at its most recent start, BILLION GAINS did not close off its race, notwithstanding that the horse was found to have mucopus in its trachea following the race.

He said, from barrier 9 tonight, he had instructed T H So to ride BILLION GAINS more conservatively so that the horse could finish off the race with more endeavour.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on SUPER TEAM 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, SUPER TEAM will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of SUPER BRAND and SUPERKING DRAGON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of HOLLYWOOD KISS immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, HOLLYWOOD KISS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SUPER TEAM, CHINA DELIGHT and CASA JUNIOR were sent for sampling.
