Recap by phillip woo

Packing Dragon took control 100m out after facing the breeze outside the odds-on favourite Winner's Way to notch a second straight win despite a step back in distance. He loves this circuit. Winner's Way found one too good after rolling forward to lead 1,500m at a pedestrian pace. The big weight was the difference in the end. Pikachu stayed on a non-threatening third following a prominent run. He pops up now and then. In another costly run, Limitless ran on steadily late to grab fourth close to home following a patient ride second from the rear. His attitude's been his own worse enemy. Sichuan Dar founded nothing when asked for more 200m out following a dream run behind the Quinella pair. It's a hard one to explain. Key Witness was off the bridle a long way out and never a factor. The mile's too far.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (439) - SHAN KWONG HANDICAP - Class 1 - 1650Meters

PRAWN BABA was withdrawn on 20.2.18 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right hind).

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

PIKACHU shifted out at the start and bumped KEY WITNESS which in turn shifted out and bumped WINNER'S WAY, causing all three horses to become unbalanced.

LIMITLESS was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover and then got its head up when travelling keenly approaching and passing the 1300 Metres.

Passing the 1300 Metres, KEY WITNESS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PIKACHU.

After this, KEY WITNESS continued to travel keenly.

Passing the 100 Metres, PACKING DRAGON (Apprentice M F Poon) shifted in towards WINNER'S WAY which resulted in Apprentice Poon having to stop riding and straighten his mount.

Apprentice Poon was warned against the practice of repeatedly using the whip forward of the saddle.

A veterinary inspection of KEY WITNESS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

PACKING DRAGON and WINNER'S WAY were sent for sampling.
