Recap by phillip woo

Solar Spirit was prominent on the stands side from a perfect gate, found the front under hard urging at the 300m and edged clear for a maiden win at his 10 th start. He relished the step back to the straight 1,000m and feather weight. Plain Blue Banner drew away to be a clear second in an improved effort at long odds with a gear change to blinkers. Copy Star traveled midfield and two off the outside fence and was getting going in the final 100m to grab a placing 50m out. Trillion Treasure settled midfield and near the center of the course, shifted into the clear closest the far side at the 300m and ran on steadily to inject further value into the First-4. Favourite Gentilis was up vying for the lead two off the stands side with Super Abundante, Heameric Te Specso and Gorgeous Debut, was under the pump at the 400m and gradually coming back to the field over the final 250m in a disappointing debut performance. Debutant Heameric Te Specso settled underneath Gentilis and was yielding ground passing the 300m after failing to respond at the 300m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (240)-LAM TSUEN RIVER HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Metres

After being loaded, TRANSFORMER became fractious, reared and got its right front leg over the front gates.

TRANSFORMER was removed from the stalls and examined by the Veterinary Officer who advised the horse was lame in its right front leg with abrasions over the tendon area and accordingly was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of TRANSFORMER.

Before being allowed to race again, TRANSFORMER will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Also after being loaded, GENTILIS became fractious.

Before being allowed to race again, GENTILIS will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

PLAIN BLUE BANNER was slow to begin.

GENTILIS shifted out at the start and bumped COPY STAR.

TRILLION TREASURE began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped HEAMERIC TE SPECSO.

For some distance in the early stages, GORGEOUS DEBUT got its head up and proved very difficult to settle.

Approaching the 600 Metres, MY CUP OVERFLOWS was momentarily steadied away from the heels of SUPER ABUNDANTE which shifted out.

COPY STAR was held up for clear running for some distance after the 500 Metres and passing the 200 Metres was awkwardly placed inside the heels of GENTILIS (Z Purton) which shifted in.

After this, GENTILIS got its head on the side and lay out under pressure.

After the race, Z Purton stated his mount was making an abnormal breathing noise which gave him the impression that it may have choked down.

Over the final 100 Metres, TRILLION TREASURE got its head on the side and lay out under pressure.
