Recap by phillip woo

Dominant was taken back to last and along the rails, pulled widest out coming to the final bend, swept to the front 250m out and kept up a good gallop to register the biggest win of his career and continue the fine success of jockey Zac Purton this season. The Fugue was handy and one off the rails early on, shuffled back to near last coming to the final bend by the erratic Mount Athos, peeled widest out at the 350m and was eating up the ground late to gun down Dunaden 50m out for second. Well-punted late Dunaden settled second from the rear from a wide gate, was strung up in traffic three-to-four deep upon straightening, ducked to the rails at the 300m, got to second at the 150m and was edged out late for the Quinella spot. Red Cadeaux was never better than four deep without cover in midfield or worse from a wide gate, swung the final bend with two wider out, moved to the front 300m out and grudgingly gave way over the final 100m. It was a big effort in defeat.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (224)-THE LONGINES HONG KONG VASE - Group One - 2400Metres

DANDINO was withdrawn on 7.12.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (right fore soft tissue injury).

GALILEO ROCK was also withdrawn on 7.12.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (left fore soft tissue injury).

FEUERBLITZ was slow to begin.

DUNADEN was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After passing the winning post on the first occasion, RED CADEAUX was left racing wide and without cover.

EBIYZA lost its left hind plate near the 800 Metres.

Approaching and passing the 600 Metres, THE FUGUE was awkwardly placed behind MOUNT ATHOS and inside EBIYZA.

THE FUGUE was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and was shifted to the outside of runners passing the 400 Metres into clear running.

DUNADEN had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and passing the 400 Metres shifted in and bumped MOUNT ATHOS.

Passing the 300 Metres, MOUNT ATHOS and SEISMOS momentarily raced in restricted room inside DUNADEN which shifted in to obtain clear running.

Over the concluding stages, SEISMOS raced in restricted room between LIBERATOR and MOUNT ATHOS.

Throughout the race, ASUKA KURICHAN travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of MOUNT ATHOS, C Williams stated that he had worked the horse during the week and, in his opinion, this work was very encouraging.

He said MOUNT ATHOS travelled keenly to the Start, however, in the early stages of the race had to be ridden along to maintain a forward position from a favourable barrier.

He said MOUNT ATHOS travelled far too keenly throughout the race and would not relax despite the race being run at a good tempo.

He said because of the manner in which MOUNT ATHOS travelled, the horse was then not able to finish off its race.

He added that when under pressure in the Straight, MOUNT ATHOS got its head on the side and lay in.

A veterinary inspection of MOUNT ATHOS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

DOMINANT and THE FUGUE were sent for sampling.
