Recap by phillip woo

Great Charm handed up the lead 900m out to Imperial Champion, stayed near the inside upon straightening, reclaimed the lead from Supreme Falcon 150m out and kept on nicely with a 10-pound claimer in play to land a betting plunge. Co-favourite Choice Treasure travelled three back along the fence, came one off at the 150m and wore down Supreme Falcon close to home for second. Supreme Falcon was prominently ridden along the paint, eased out coming to the final bend, briefly hit the front four deep at the 200m and came up one-paced over the last 100m. Newcomer Golden Sun closed off reasonably well near four deep after travelling fourth from the rear to finish a distant fourth. Happy Surveys was ridden near the back from a wide gate, swung the final bend deepest out and ran on without menacing. He was in need of the run. Red Kylin sat outside Supreme Falcon in the run, swung the final bend five deep and was only holding his ground over the final 150m. Equal favourite Beauty Kingdom never landed a blow with one wider out upon straightening after travelling fourth from the rear despite a good gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (486)-THE HONG KONG EXCHANGES CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) (Sec1) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

BEAUTY KINGDOM shifted out abruptly at the start despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in BEST TANGO, which began awkwardly, to be badly hampered.

In this incident, BEAUTY KINGDOM was also badly hampered after shifting out across the heels of ALL THE BEST.

From wide barriers, MASSIVE MILLENNIUM and HAPPY SURVEYS were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 900 Metres, BRAVE KNIGHT was left racing wide and without cover.

MASSIVE MILLENNIUM made the turn after the 600 Metres awkwardly.

Making the Home Turn, HAPPY SURVEYS was hampered when taken wider by BEAUTY KINGDOM which hung out.

After improving into tight running inside GREAT CHARM (Apprentice K K Chiong) near the 250 Metres, CHOICE TREASURE raced tight inside that horse and then approaching the 100 Metres was shifted to the outside of GREAT CHARM when unable to maintain its position inside that horse which shifted in marginally under pressure.

Apprentice Chiong was reprimanded and advised to ensure that she makes every endeavour to prevent her mounts from shifting ground in similar circumstances.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of BEAUTY KINGDOM, M Chadwick stated that after beginning very awkwardly, his mount hung out throughout the race and proved difficult to ride.

He said he had to continually fight against BEAUTY KINGDOM in an endeavour to prevent it from shifting out abruptly and because of this he was not able to properly test the horse at any stage of the race.

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

The performance of BEAUTY KINGDOM, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, BEAUTY KINGDOM will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial around a bend.

After the race, IMPERIAL CHAMPION, which weakened in the Straight after travelling keenly in the lead, was examined by the Veterinary Officer at the request of Trainer C Fownes.

This veterinary inspection did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPY SURVEYS and ALL THE BEST immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
