Recap by phillip woo

Newcomer Comeback Kid travelled fore of midfield and one off the rails, straightened two-to-three deep and kept coming with every stride to run down favourite I'm In Charge in the final few metres for the win. He appears to have a bright future in Hong Kong. I'm In Charge was up with the leaders, assumed the front from Gamekeepers rounding the final bend, opened up two lengths at the 300m and found one too good in the end in his first run on the dirt. Rumba King was posted deep in midfield from a wide alley, swung the final bend with one wider out, moved to second at the 250m and just held off Danewin Tiger for a placing when peaking on his run 100m out. Danewin Tiger swung the final bend with two wider out and was getting going late to come out a clear-cut fourth. Green Easy loomed a place chance four deep at the 250m and was one-paced over the final 100m. Oriental Prosper had trouble staying in touch second from the rear, pushed widest out upon straightening and was doing some nice work late without menacing. All Win Boy was shuffled back to only have a couple behind him at the 700m, improved to midfield coming to the final bend and only held his ground in the straight run. Second favourite Hello Kimberley was was shuffled back when trying to avoid the stopping Little Dragon at the 600m and was never a factor thereafter.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (699)-CELOSIA HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

COMEBACK KID began awkwardly, shifted out at the start and made contact with GREEN EASY which became unbalanced.

Making the first turn near the 700 Metres, LITTLE DRAGON got its head on the side and shifted out towards I'M IN CHARGE and was reluctant to maintain its position and in doing so gave ground abruptly.

HELLO KIMBERLEY (J Moreira), which was following LITTLE DRAGON, was severely hampered and taken back through the field and had to be shifted away from the heels of that horse near the 600 Metres.

EASTERN PROMISE, which was following HELLO KIMBERLEY, was severely checked away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

When HELLO KIMBERLEY shifted out, DANEWIN TIGER was inconvenienced.

The racing manners of LITTLE DRAGON were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, LITTLE DRAGON will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial around a bend.

After the race, J Moreira stated that prior to this incident HELLO KIMBERLEY, which was up in grade tonight, was off the bridle and whilst this incident impacted upon the horse's performance, nonetheless HELLO KIMBERLEY was then disappointing in its failure to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of HELLO KIMBERLEY immediately following the race revealed the horse to have sustained minor wounds to the inside of the left front fetlock.

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

Despite being vigorously ridden in the early and middle stages, ORIENTAL PROSPER failed to muster speed and consequently raced well back in the field.

Approaching the 400 Metres, EASTERN PROMISE was checked away from the heels of HELLO KIMBERLEY which was hampered by LITTLE DRAGON which continued to lay out.

Rounding the Home Turn, ALL WIN BOY raced tight between GREEN EASY and RUMBA KING.

Shortly after entering the Straight, LITTLE DRAGON was shifted in away from the heels of GAMEKEEPERS which shifted ground abruptly.

Near the 300 Metres, HELLO KIMBERLEY was shifted out away from the heels of GAMEKEEPERS which continued to give ground.

For the majority of the race, GREEN EASY and RUMBA KING travelled wide and without cover.

RUMBA KING lost its left front plate after passing the winning post.

A veterinary inspection of ALL WIN BOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of GAMEKEEPERS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

The performance of GAMEKEEPERS, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, GAMEKEEPERS will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
