Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Able Friend eased back after jumping well to travel one off the rail outside Ambitious Dragon in midfield, swung the final bend five deep and quickened nicely to win going away at the 200m. He will be hard to beat in the Hong Kong Mile next month. Gold-Fun was held up until shifting outside Secret Sham four deep at the 250m mark following a prominent run along the rails and finished well to grab second around 60m out just ahead of Ambitious Dragon, who finished well after working his way around a tiring Lord Sinclair at the 150m. Secret Sham assumed the front 250m out after tracking the even fractions of Lord Sinclair and found the top-three a class too good. Rainbow Chic made his run third from the rear near the inside, angled into the clear with three wider out at the 250m mark and ran on without menacing. Rewarding Hero settled behind midfield and made some ground without ever looking a threat with two wider out upon straightening. Packing Whiz settled near the back and never a factor despite a move to blinkers.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (183)-THE BOCHK WEALTH MANAGEMENT JOCKEY CLUB MILE - Group Two - 1600Metres

GOLD-FUN shifted out at the start and bumped RAINBOW CHIC.

RAINBOW CHIC was then crowded for room a short distance later between GOLD-FUN and REWARDING HERO which was taken in by SECRET SHAM Passing the 1300 Metres, PACKING WHIZ commenced to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when being checked away from the heels of RAINBOW CHIC.

Then passing the 900 Metres, PACKING WHIZ again had to be checked away from the heels of RAINBOW CHIC when it continued to prove difficult to settle.

In the early part of the Straight, AMBITIOUS DRAGON got its head on the side and lay in and near the 250 Metres was momentarily held up when improving into tight running between GOLD-FUN and LORD SINCLAIR.

AMBITIOUS DRAGON then continued to lay in under pressure over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of HANA'S GOAL 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.

ABLE FRIEND and GOLD-FUN were sent for sampling.
