Recap by phillip woo

Optimization Star was ridden quietly from the widest gate, straightened and quickened nicely 70m out to take the win. Jun Hao settled fore of midfield and hit the front at the 200m but found one too smart in the end. Kids And Win settled three back along the fence, shifted at the 150m and finished nicely to snatch third from outsider Easy Ahead. Easy Ahead kept on reasonably well after working to the front 300m out. Captain America came out next best but well behind the top four. Solar Dragon was headed at the 1,000m by Goldweaver and couldn't stay in touch over the final 150m. Goldweaver was gone at the 250m. Golden Osmanthus did not fire a shot when popped the question. Favourite Idyllic Wind never got into the act.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (274)-WONG LENG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Metres

SEA SMOKE was withdrawn on 31.12.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter JUN HAO (M Guyon).

Before being allowed to race again, SEA SMOKE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

From the outside barriers, SWEET BEAN and OPTIMIZATION STAR were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

CAPTAIN AMERICA was also taken across behind runners to obtain cover in the early stages.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, CHAMPION RANGER failed to muster speed.

MY CUP OVERFLOWS (O Doleuze) had its head on the side and hung out throughout the race.

After the race, O Doleuze reported that because of the horse's tendency to lay out throughout the race, he was not able to occupy a more forward position which had been intended.

Passing the 600 Metres, OPTIMIZATION STAR was steadied away from the heels of CAPTAIN AMERICA.

Passing the 300 Metres, KIDS AND WIN was awkwardly placed inside the heels of JUN HAO and behind EASY AHEAD.

KIDS AND WIN then had difficulty obtaining clear running until passing the 150 Metres at which time it was shifted to the outside of JUN HAO.

Near the 75 Metres, JUN HAO shifted out and bumped OPTIMIZATION STAR.

Throughout the race, CHANS DELIGHT and DIAMOND ANGEL travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, D Whyte (IDYLLIC WIND) reported that his mount did not respond to his riding under pressure and, in his opinion, raced "flat".

He said this may have been due to the fact that IDYLLIC WIND was only having its second up run after a long break.

A veterinary inspection of IDYLLIC WIND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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

A veterinary inspection of GOLDWEAVER and CHAMPION RANGER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

IDYLLIC WIND, OPTIMIZATION STAR and JUN HAO were sent for sampling.
