Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Teofilo Calva settled in the box-seat, then was badly held up until barging his way between runners at the 200m, hit the lead 120m out and drew clear for a fourth straight win. He's got the ability to head a lot higher . Precision King took the sit in second and one off the rails behind Gorgeous Debut, advanced to a narrow lead at the 150m while getting bumped about by Teofilo Calva and kept on gamely thereafter to clearly hold second. Key Witness bided his time behind midfield and two off the rails with cover, swung the final bend widest out and ran on reasonably to grab a placing 100m out. He appears to be crying out for a longer trip. Fat Choy Hong Kong was handy in the run and one off the rails and kept plugging away to just hold Great Storm for a First-4 spot. Great Storm travelled fore of midfield without cover, swung the final bend with two wider out and stayed on all right in an improved effort. Sea Diamond settled behind midfield along the fence, shifted two-to-three deep upon straightening and made a mild bid without menacing. Gorgeous Debut flew the gates, led by two coming to the final bend and was stopping badly 120m out. Imperial Rome badly missed the kick and was never a factor. Business As Usual was never involved after crowding at the jump.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (025)-SHANTOU HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Metres

Om arrival at the Start, the tongue tie applied to FAT CHOY HONG KONG was refitted.

IMPERIAL ROME was very slow to begin and lost a considerable amount of ground at the start.

Having regard to IMPERIAL ROME's previous record of being slow to begin, the Stewards ruled that the horse must undergo a series of satisfactorily official barrier trials before being permitted to race again.

BUSINESS AS USUAL began awkwardly and then was crowded for room between PRECISION KING and FAT CHOY HONG KONG which shifted out.

Between the 300 Metres and the 200 Metres, FAT CHOY HONG KONG (Y T Cheng) and GREAT STORM (C Y Ho) raced in close quarters, resulting in their respective riders being inconvenienced in their riding out of those horses.

TEOFILO CALVA was unable to obtain clear running for some distance approaching and passing the 200 Metres.

Then near the 150 Metres, TEOFILO CALVA and PRECISION KING bumped on a number of occasions as TEOFILO CALVA improved into very tight running between GORGEOUS DEBUT and PRECISION KING which got its head on the side and shifted out slightly.

As TEOFILO CALVA improved into this run, GORGEOUS DEBUT, which was commencing to give ground, was momentarily unbalanced when racing tight inside TEOFILO CALVA.

Throughout the race, GREAT STORM travelled wide and without cover.

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

TEOFILO CALVA and PRECISION KING were sent for sampling.
