Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Sledge Hammer made his run one off in fourth, straightened four deep and just outgunned Kingston Jumbo in a photo finish for an overdue win. Kingston Jumbo was ridden along after a sluggish break to eventually settle third and one off the rails entering the first bend, responded to poke his head in front three deep 20m out and was nipped on the wire in his first outing on the dirt and at this level. He'll come on for the run and may be able to get away with a suitable sprint race at this level. Tang Palace led them into straight by nearly two lengths and grudgingly gave way. Oriental Fantasia kept plugging away without menacing following a pace-stalking run in his initial run on this surface. He's better over a further trip. Amazing Gift travelled second from the rear and made some ground near the inside without menacing. Everspring got by beaten rivals from the tail of the field. Nine Dragons faded approaching the final bend following a midfield run.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (085)-BOSTON HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

KINGSTON JUMBO, which began only fairly, was hampered shortly after the start when bumped by NINE DRAGONS which was taken out by ORIENTAL FANTASTIA which got its head on the side and shifted ground.

From the outside barrier, EVERSPRING was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

AMAZING GIFT was taken across behind runners in the early stages and then making the first turn near the 700 Metres got its head on the side and shifted out.

For the majority of the race, CARE FREE ELEGANCE travelled wide and without cover.

After the winning post, SHIFACHI TRADITION collapsed.

K Teetan, who was dislodged from SHIFACHI TRADITION, was examined by the Club??s medical officers and passed fit to fulfil his remaining race riding engagements.

SLEDGE HAMMER and KINGSTON JUMBO were sent for sampling.
