Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Step High settled midfield along the rails, stayed near the inside upon straightening and ran on steadily to get up in the final few metres for a fourth victory this term. Beauty King rolled forward from a wide gate to eventually lead along the rails at the 1,300m, swung the final bend nearly two lengths on top and grudgingly gave way late. Better Announce settled one off the rails in second, rounded the final bend five deep and kept on gamely to come out a clear third. Expectator travelled behind midfield along the rails, stayed to the paint upon straightening and made some progress to complete Quartet calculations. Cool Bean enjoyed the box-seat run, straightened three deep and was only one-paced under a hustling ride from the top of the straight in another disappointing performance. Diligent III settled behind midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend widest out and was getting going late without menacing. Real General settled midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with one wider out and only held his ground under the pump. Absolute Fantasy was handy in the run and kept on evenly under the pump, despite the return to Class Four.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (560)-SHEK KIP MEI HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Metres

AMBITIOUS TREASURE was withdrawn on 15.4.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore foot) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter NOBLE DE BEST (K Teetan).

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

HEAR THE ROAR began only fairly and shortly after the start was crowded for room between DILIGENT III and GLAMOROUS RYDER which was taken in slightly by REAL GENERAL.

BETTER ANNOUNCE began awkwardly.

From the outside barrier, KING OF PATCH was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, STEP HIGH and REAL GENERAL raced tight inside COOL BEAN which was momentarily taken in by BEAUTY KING.

A short distance after this, COOL BEAN was again steadied away from the heels of BEAUTY KING (J Moreira) which shifted in.

J Moreira was advised to exercise more care.

Throughout the race, GLAMOROUS RYDER travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

After the race, Z Purton reported that REAL GENERAL did not feel comfortable in its action in the Straight.

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

A veterinary inspection of HEAR THE ROAR immediately following the race revealed the horse to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.

STEP HIGH and BEAUTY KING were sent for sampling.
