Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Sum Win Dragon was in no hurry early on from a wide gate, circled the field 850m out to find the front 650m out, cornered near two lengths on top and kept on gamely for a first win at his 13th start and ring up a treble for trainer Almond Lee. Oracle was handy in the run one off the fence, loomed a winning chance four deep at the 200m and came up one-paced 100m out. Happy Friendship finished well with two wider out following a one off run travelling worse than midfield to just out-bob Mr Vanilla for a placing. Mr Vanilla made his run with cover behind Happy Friendship, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished well to just miss a placing. Mighty Wongchoy made some ground without menacing along the inside after travelling near the fence behind midfield. Snowhooves had led until handing up the lead to Sum Win Dragon, straightening one off the fence and only held his ground over the final 150m. Post-time favourite Circuit Star never fired after a rails run travelling ahead of midfield. Bornfree retreated coming to the final bend after stalking the early leader Four Four Five off the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (485)-MAN CHEUNG HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

MEDIC SWORDSMAN was slow to begin and shortly after the start was hampered when bumped by REUNITED which was taken out by MR VANILLA.

HAPPY FRIENDSHIP and ORACLE bumped at the start.

MIGHTY WONGCHOY began only fairly.

From wide barriers, KHARU and SUM WIN DRAGON were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, MIGHTY WONGCHOY raced tight inside HAPPY FRIENDSHIP.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, ORACLE was steadied away from the heels of BORNFREE.

Passing the 1000 Metres, SNOWHOOVES commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FOUR FOUR FIVE.

Shortly after entering the Straight, BORNFREE got its head on the side and shifted in towards the heels of FOUR FOUR FIVE.

After the race, M Chadwick (CIRCUIT STAR) reported that he was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of the horse.

He said he was able to obtain a good position on the horse, however, CIRCUIT STAR came under pressure before the Home Turn and then hung in under pressure in the Straight and did not close off the race.

A veterinary inspection of CIRCUIT STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of BORNFREE immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

CIRCUIT STAR, SUM WIN DRAGON and ORACLE were sent for sampling.
