Recap by phillip woo

Golden Chopsticks settled behind midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out and edged Peace N Prosperity for a second win over this course and distance. Peace N Prosperity was off the course and near the back early on, drove forward without cover nearly four deep to sit midfield at the 700m, worked to the front five deep close to home and was swamped late. Hella Hedge worked to clear Supreme Flight for the front at the 600m, cornered a length on top and grudgingly gave way. Supreme Flight eased back to sit behind the leader at the 600m, came out one off rounding the final bend and finished up well to just miss a placing. Who's The Dude had trouble staying in touch at the rear, pushed widest out at the 300m and closed off well to finish fifth in a pleasing debut effort. Excel Onself ran on five deep after travelling second from the rear. Let Me Do travelled three deep third from the rear and ran on late. Dashing Ceramibo was posted deep without cover worse than midfield, gained cover with Peace N Prosperity going forward 700m out, straightened and came up one-paced over the final 150m. Favourite Both Sure never ran on after travelling worse than midfield along the fence. Beauty Kingdom only held his ground over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (686)-HOI LAI HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

BOTH SURE was tightened for room on jumping between HELLA HEDGE and BEAUTY KINGDOM which shifted out after beginning awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, PEACE N PROSPERITY was steadied away from the heels of EXCEL ONESELF which shifted out abruptly.

After this, EXCEL ONESELF was shifted across behind runners.

Also from a wide barrier, LET ME DO was taken across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the first turn near the 1000 Metres, PEACE N PROSPERITY was left racing very wide and without cover and near the 800 Metres was allowed to improve its position, however, continued to race three wide and without cover for the remainder of the race.

Making the turn near the 950 Metres, WHO'STHEDUDE got its head up when being checked away from the heels of GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS.

Also making the turn near the 950 Metres, APACHE SPIRIT got its head up when being steadied when racing tight inside SUPREME FLIGHT which got its head on the side and shifted in away from HELLA HEDGE (C Y Ho) which shifted in.

Whilst the Stewards acknowledged that C Y Ho had made some effort to correct his mount, nonetheless he was advised to ensure that in similar circumstances he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground.

Making the turn near the 900 Metres, EXCEL ONESELF, which was travelling keenly, shifted out, resulting in LET ME DO and PEACE N PROSPERITY being taken wider.

Near the 650 Metres, WHO'STHEDUDE became unbalanced when reluctant to maintain its position inside EXCEL ONESELF.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, APACHE SPIRIT, which was travelling keenly, shifted out away from the heels of SUPREME FLIGHT, resulting in BEAUTY KINGDOM being hampered.

BOTH SURE, which was following, was checked away from the heels of APACHE SPIRIT in consequence.

Rounding the Home Turn, EXCEL ONESELF was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BEAUTY KINGDOM.

Approaching the 200 Metres, EXCEL ONESELF raced in restricted room when improving into tight running between BEAUTY KINGDOM and DASHING CERAMIBO.

Then near the 150 Metres, EXCEL ONESELF was momentarily crowded for room between BEAUTY KINGDOM which was awkwardly placed outside the heels of LONGWAH AMBER and DASHING CERAMIBO which shifted in marginally.

After this, EXCEL ONESELF and BEAUTY KINGDOM raced tight.

Over the final 200 Metres, DASHING CERAMIBO hung in under pressure and proved difficult to ride.

Over the concluding stages, SUPREME FLIGHT raced tight between HELLA HEDGE and PEACE N PROSPERITY which shifted in.

H W Lai (GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS) was fined $2,000 for raising his whip arm above shoulder height.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of BOTH SURE, Z Purton stated that his mount, which has a history of breathing problems, was travelling well until near the 600 Metres at which time he had to take hold of BOTH SURE to avoid the heels of runners in front.

He said as soon as he did this, BOTH SURE again made an abnormal breathing noise.

He said BOTH SURE was not able to regain balance until the concluding stages at which time the horse commenced to finish off the race fairly.

A veterinary inspection of BOTH SURE immediately following the race revealed the horse to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.

A veterinary inspection of BEAUTY KINGDOM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
