Recap by phillip woo

Hot favourite Able Friend made his run second from the rear from a wide gate, was strung up in traffic near the inside upon straightening, angled into the clear with one wider out at the 300m and produced an exhilarating turn of foot to win going away at the 150m. He's truly a world-class miler. Gold-Fun was ridden to lead through good fractions, fought back gamely when briefly headed at the 400m and grudgingly gave way to just hold outsider Grand Prix Boss for the Quinella spot. Japan challenger Grand Prix Boss was posted without cover in fourth or fifth from a wide gate, cornered five deep and kept coming to make it close for the Quinella spot. World Ace settled behind midfield along the rails, came one off soon after straightening and eventually got going to nail Glorious Days in a blanket finish for fourth. Glorious Days settled a distant third one off the rails, loomed a place chance three deep at the 200m and ran out of condition 100m out in his first run back following a six-month break. Fiero ran on three deep following a handy run along the rails to just miss a pay cheque. Trade Storm didn't make much of an impression after travelling third from the rear.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (239)-THE LONGINES HONG KONG MILE - Group One - 1600Metres

AMBITIOUS DRAGON was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right front foot).

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

Shortly after the start, WORLD ACE and TRADE STORM were crowded for room inside GOLD-FUN which shifted in after being bumped by GLORIOUS DAYS.

FIERO began only fairly.

Passing the 1200 Metres, SECRET SHAM shifted out and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GOLD-FUN.

Approaching the 700 Metres, WORLD ACE got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of FIERO which was awkwardly placed behind GLORIOUS DAYS.

After the 200 Metres, WORLD ACE lay out under pressure and over the concluding stages raced tight inside GLORIOUS DAYS.

For the majority of the race, GRAND PRIX BOSS travelled wide and without cover.

ABLE FRIEND and GOLD-FUN were sent for sampling.
