Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Roundabout out-duelled late-fancied favourite Beauty Kingdom after hitting the front 150m out following a midfield run to win was a weak race on paper. He'll have to play the ratings game and wait his turn again. Beauty Kingdom assumed the front 260m out after rolling forward to stalk the leader Orionids from the widest gate at the 1,150m but found one too good in the end. He's very honest over this trip but has trouble winning. Ka Ying Kid got up 80m out for a placing following a prominent run. He didn't have much behind him. Winston's Lad made a steady bid travelling fore of midfield to finish a non-threatening fourth. He has disappointed after winning his opening two starts in Hong Kong over the 1,200m but isn't far away from a bottom. Orionids was on his tippy toes 100m out after leading from an awkward gate off a feather weight. He needs to drop in class. There was nothing noticeable about the also rans.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eihgt: (323)-PEONY HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 3 - 1400Metres

BORNTOACHIEVE, Standby Declared Starter, was withdrawn on 7.1.17 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore).

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

As the start was effected, FABULOUS NOVEMBER lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently was slow to begin.

DRAGON DANCE began only fairly.

MY GIFT was crowded for room on jumping between SWISS WARRIOR and ORIONIDS which shifted out.

In this incident, DESMIOS, which was positioned outside SWISS WARRIOR, was bumped by that horse.

MY GIFT and DESMIOS were then shifted across behind runners.

Approaching and passing the 1200 Metres, FABULOUS NOVEMBER proved very difficult to settle and got its head up when being checked away from the heels of STARSHIP.

After the 1000 Metres, DESMIOS proved very difficult to settle and got its head up when being checked away from the heels of STARSHIP.

WINSTON'S LAD was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Passing the 100 Metres, DESMIOS was shifted to the inside of VICTORY DAY to obtain clear running.

Over the concluding stages, DESMIOS was steadied away from the heels of ROMAN IMPERO.

For the majority of the race, SWISS WARRIOR raced wide and without cover.

When questioned, C Schofield stated that when he had ridden KA YING KID in the past, he assessed that it performs best when able to obtain clear galloping room.

He said passing the 800 Metres when racing behind BEAUTY KINGDOM, the tempo of the race steadied marginally and when SWISS WARRIOR commenced to improve to the outside of KA YING KID, he felt it would be more advantageous for KA YING KID to be shifted out at this time as the horse had a light weight and he did not want to be pocketed by SWISS WARRIOR were that horse to improve around KA YING KID.

VICTORY DAY lost its right front plate after the race.

ROUNDABOUT and BEAUTY KINGDOM were sent for sampling.
