Recap by phillip woo

Winning King settled one off in midfield, rounded the final bend with three wider out and quickened nicely to get up in the shadows of the post for the win with a drop in class. Favourite Yo-Yo Da tracked the speed along the fence, got into the clear three deep at the 300m, briefly hit the front 20m out and was collared on the wire. Red Courage settled third from the rear and one off the fence, swung the final bend with one wider out and made it a thriller on the wire in his first run. The Prince was challenging for the lead four deep until slotting one off outside the leader Planet Choice at the 1,000m, burst to the front 200m out and was swamped 50m out. No Ties got going late two from the outside after making his run second from the rear after drawing an outside gate. Hayhay came up one-paced after a no-cover run fore of midfield. Joy Together kept on evenly after a one-out, one-back run. O'Socoole was ridden for luck at the rear from a wide gate and only got by beaten rivals. Planet Choice was knocked up soon after straightening. Debutant Ting Ka Palace was withdrawn.

Racing Incident Report


After being loaded into the barriers, TING KA PALACE became fractious, reared and got its front feet over the front gates before becoming cast.

In order for TING KA PALACE to be removed from under the barriers, all remaining horses in the field were unloaded.

This resulted in a considerable delay to the start of the race.

Acting on veterinary advice that TING KA PALACE was not suitable to race, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of the horse.

Before being allowed to race again, TING KA PALACE will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After the race, Y T Cheng was examined by the Club's medical officers and passed fit to fulfil his remaining race riding engagements.

YOUNG BULLET was checked shortly after the start when crowded for room between NO TIES which got its head on the side and shifted in and RED COURAGE which was taken out by HAYHAY.

From wide barriers, O'SOCOOLE, YOUNG BULLET and NAMJONG SURPRISE were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

For some distance after the 850 Metres, RED COURAGE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of WINNING KING.

JOY TOGETHER lost its left front plate at the 800 Metres.

YO-YO DA had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and approaching the 200 Metres shifted out and bumped JOY TOGETHER when improving into a tight run outside THE PRINCE.

In the Straight, NO TIES hung in and proved difficult to ride.

For the majority of the race, HAYHAY travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that YOUNG BULLET had bled from both nostrils.

A veterinary inspection of PLANET CHOICE and O'SOCOOLE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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

WINNING KING and YO-YO DA were sent for sampling.
