Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Magical Beauty quickened nicely five deep after a perfect trip one off the fence in fourth to win going away 180m out. Choice Treasure went forward to lead 1,200m out from a tricky gate, cornered a length on top and just held off King Of Mongolia for second. King Of Mongolia closed off reasonably well three deep after getting bumped about mid-straight following a three-back run along the fence to make it close for a Quinella spot. Formula Won ran his usual honest race to get up with three wider out to fill a Quartet spot after travelling third from the rear and one off the fence. Red Marvel pressed forward from a wide gate to eventually sit one off in second at the 1,000m, straightened with every chance and came up one-paced over the last 100m. The Rainbow was grudgingly yielding ground over the final 200m following a box-seat run. Expedite made a steady bid four deep without menacing following a one-off the fence run behind midfield. Plunged late, Happy Journey never let down following a rail's run underneath Expedite. Giant Stars never came on after easing back to travel fourth from the rear following a very deep trip early on in midfield from the widest gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (599)-BUSAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

CHATER LEGEND began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of CHOICE TREASURE.

CHOICE TREASURE then shifted out, resulting in CHATER LEGEND being crowded for room inside RED MARVEL.

MAGICAL BEAUTY began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped THE RAINBOW.

From the outside barriers, SURE PEACE and GIANT STARS were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 1400 Metres, HAPPY JOURNEY was checked away from the heels of KING OF MONGOLIA which was steadied to allow THE RAINBOW to cross into the lead.

CHATER LEGEND, which was following HAPPY JOURNEY, was checked away from the heels of that horse near the 1350 Metres and bumped the running rail, resulting in CHATER LEGEND becoming badly unbalanced, shifting out and making contact with EXPEDITE.

SURE PEACE, which was following CHATER LEGEND, also became unbalanced and bumped the running rail when hampered in consequence.

After the 1200 Metres, SURE PEACE lost ground when crowded for room inside FORMULA WON which, when being ridden along to maintain its position, shifted in marginally.

Also after the 1200 Metres, HONG KONG CAPTAIN was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 450 Metres, KING OF MONGOLIA and EXPEDITE raced tight.

Shortly after entering the Straight, GIANT STARS was steadied when disappointed for running between HONG KONG CAPTAIN and FORMULA WON which, when improving into tight running outside HAPPY JOURNEY, was taken out by that horse.

Near the 250 Metres, KING OF MONGOLIA was held up for clear running when racing tight inside EXPEDITE and awkwardly placed close to the heels of RED MARVEL.

After the race, M L Yeung (RED MARVEL) reported that when placed under pressure in the Straight his mount lay in and proved difficult to ride.

A veterinary inspection of GIANT STARS immediately following the race revealed the horse to have a continuous epiglottic entrapment.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPY JOURNEY immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea and also found it to be lame in its right front leg.

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

MAGICAL BEAUTY and CHOICE TREASURE were sent for sampling.
