Recap by phillip woo

Plain Red Banner handed up the lead at the 1,200m to Beauty King, reclaimed the front three deep soon after straightening and edged clear for a nice win. Ready To Celebrate was parked on the back of the leaders in third, moved to second at the 200m straightened four deep and finished nicely to secure second. Travel Smart made his run worse than midfield along the rails, peeled out coming to the final bend, straightened with two wider out and was doing some nice work late to make it close for second. Speedygonzalez settled fourth from the rear and near the rails, cornered four-to-five deep and got rolling late without ever menacing on a place line. Favourite Winning Mascot made his run third from the rear and near three deep, was always travelling in restricted room three from the outside upon straightening and kept on evenly over the final 150m with some clear running room. Carrying roll-up money, Ever Spring made his run near the rear and made some ground, despite being held up from the 250m to the 50m in an improved performance. Full Of Fun rounded the final bend widest out and made some ground early straight before coming up flat in the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (270)-YIK YAM HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

HOXO was withdrawn on 25.12.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter FULL OF FUN (H W Lai).

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

TRAVEL SMART began awkwardly and shortly after the start raced tight between FULL OF FUN and HIGH RETURN.

BEAUTY KING and RISING POWER were crowded for room on jumping between READY TO CELEBRATE which became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by BEAUTY KING and EVERSPRING which shifted in abruptly.

After this, from the outside barrier, EVERSPRING was taken across behind runners.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, FULL OF FUN got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of READY TO CELEBRATE.

Making the turn near the 1100 Metres, HIGH RETURN got its head on the side and was awkwardly placed inside the heels of READY TO CELEBRATE.

HIGH RETURN then raced with its head on the side for some distance after this.

EVERSPRING was badly held up for clear running from shortly after entering the Straight until passing the 150 Metres.

In the early part of the Straight, EXPEDITE got its head on the side, hung in and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of TRAVEL SMART.

Also in the early part of the Straight, WINNING MASCOT had difficulty obtaining clear running when attempting to obtain a tight run between RISING POWER which shifted out marginally when weakening and TRAVEL SMART.

Then approaching the 100 Metres, WINNING MASCOT was disappointed for running between SPEEDYGONZALEZ and TRAVEL SMART and because of this was not able to be fully tested.

A veterinary inspection of RISING POWER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

WINNING MASCOT, PLAIN RED BANNER and READY TO CELEBRATE were sent for sampling.
