Recap by phillip woo

Bubble Chic settled on the back of the leader Same World, worked to the front three deep at the 150m and kept on gamely off a light weight for the win, despite bad handicap conditions. Well-punted late to jump favourite, Mr Gnocchi tracked the leaders in third along the fence, straightened four deep and got up 60m out for second. Same World got away with an uncontested lead, cornered near two lengths on top and was yielding ground over the final 100m. Zaidan settled seven lengths back at the rear in the compact field, improved near the inside at the 650m, stayed to the fence upon straightening and peaked on his run 50m out after looming a place chance 150m out. Packing Whiz settled second from the rear, pushed widest out upon straightening and was doing his best work late without menacing. Early favourite Ashkiyr slotted along the rails behind Mr Gnocchi, got going after peeling out at the 600m, swung the final bend with one wider out and came up flat 150m out in a disappointing effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (511)-THE PREMIER PLATE (HANDICAP) - Hong Kong Group Three - 1800Metres

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of ASHKIYR, K C Leung stated that the horse travelled well during the early and middle stages and after the 700 Metres he shifted ASHKIYR to the outside of MR GNOCCHI to take closer order.

He said ASHKIYR initially quickened well and he expected the horse to sustain its run and finish off the race strongly, however, by the entrance to the Straight ASHKIYR was commencing to give ground on MR GNOCCHI and, despite being placed under considerable pressure, weakened noticeably in the Straight and was disappointing.

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

A veterinary inspection of PACKING WHIZ immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BUBBLE CHIC and MR GNOCCHI were sent for sampling.
