Recap by phillip woo

Golden Gunners was given a well-executed ride by Vincent Ho Chak-yiu to land a one-off spot in midfield from a wide gate, rounded the final bend six deep and just out-finished favourite Magical Beam from the 200m for an upset win. Magical Beam travelled behind midfield along the rails, angled out coming to the final bend to take the final bend with three wider out and kept up a strong gallop to just miss. Plunged late, Everyone's Choice eventually drop in from a wide gate to travel one off with cover in fourth, drifted out under pressure while cornering four deep and was grudgingly giving way in the final 50m to just hold a placing. Bornfree made his run behind midfield with cover three deep, swung the final bend with one wider out and was hitting the line well with a switch to blinkers. King On Earth kept on all right near the inside after tracking the hot tempo of Happy Goal in the box-seat. Happy Goal was still on top by near two lengths upon straightening and was giving ground 100m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (768)-MY CHOICE HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

Whilst in the saddling stalls, BEST FIGHTER had its right front plate refitted.

BEST FIGHTER was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

BLISS CARTEL was slow to begin.

GLORY BOY began awkwardly.

SUCCESSFUL LEADER and NEW PET bumped on jumping.

EVERYONE'S CHOICE began awkwardly and shifted out shortly after the start.

When being ridden along shortly after the start, JOYFUL LUCK (Apprentice K C Ng) shifted out, resulting in MAGICAL BEAM being taken out onto SUCCESSFUL LEADER which, after being bumped, then got its head on the side and shifted in abruptly, resulting in NEW PET and CHINA GOOD being hampered.

Apprentice Ng was advised that in similar circumstances he would be expected to do more to prevent his mounts from shifting ground than he did on this occasion.

From a wide barrier, WINNING ADVANTAGE was steadied in the early stages to obtain a position closer to the rail.

Approaching the 800 Metres, EVERYONE'S CHOICE was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of JOYFUL LUCK when being shifted across behind that horse.

Approaching and passing the 200 Metres, EVERYONE'S CHOICE shifted out under pressure, resulting in GOLDEN GUNNERS racing tight between that horse and MAGICAL BEAM.

When questioned, H W Lai (KING ON EARTH) stated that he had been asked to take advantage of the horse's inside draw and obtain a more forward position than is usual.

He said it was hoped that he would be able to obtain a position behind the leaders if possible.

He said KING ON EARTH began very well and he was able to obtain a forward position without having to place the horse under heavy pressure.

A veterinary inspection of JOYFUL LUCK immediately following the race found that horse to have sustained a superficial wound to the left hind leg.

GOLDEN GUNNERS and MAGICAL BEAM were sent for sampling.
