Recap by phillip woo

Ambitious Champion sat outside the leader Basic Trilogy from a tricky gate, poked his head in front 400m out, opened up by nearly two lengths at the 200m and held off the late surge of Anticipation for a fourth win from 26 starts. He's a vastly-improved runner following a stable change. Anticipation travelled fourth along the fence, was held up four deep until ducking inside for a clear run at the 250m and was eating up the ground late to finish a clear second in a solid run despite a rise in class and distance. Second favourite Giovanni Canaletto sustained his run after making his move from the back to get up 50m out for a placing. Renaissance Art kept grinding away for fourth following a boxseat run. Basic Trilogy was yielding ground 150m out after setting even fractions on the lead. Mr Gnocchi made some ground without ever looking a chance with one wider out after travelling one off the fence behind midfield with money coming for him late. Favourite Victory Magic had no excuse following a handy run with cover but failed to let down when asked for an effort. He didn't handle the ground. Harbour Master continued to disappoint after travelling second from the back. Flame Hero didn't get the trip carrying top weight after travelling among the backmarkers.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (587)-THE QUEEN MOTHER MEMORIAL CUP (HANDICAP) - Hong Kong Group Three - 2400Metres

After the 2300 Metres, VICTORY MAGIC and MR GNOCCHI raced tight.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, HARBOUR MASTER was taken into a position wide and without cover by GIOVANNI CANALETTO which shifted out.

Near the 250 Metres, ANTICIPATION was shifted to the inside of RENAISSANCE ART after being disappointed for running between that horse and VICTORY MAGIC.

When questioned, O Doleuze stated that after steadying his mount shortly after the start, he shifted FLAME HERO across to the rail in order to improve his position and take a trailing position behind the leader of the race BASIC TRILOGY.

He said, despite being ridden along, FLAME HERO was not able to improve sufficiently to obtain this position.

After the race, Z Purton reported that VICTORY MAGIC was not comfortable in today's track conditions.

A veterinary inspection of VICTORY MAGIC immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
