Recap by phillip woo

Raging favourite Beauty Generation eased out of a speed battle to settle third from the back, rushed forward at the 1,000m to park outside the leader The Golden Age 800m out and drew clear 400m out despite laying out under pressure to win in track record time. He was the best without anything going right and will be hard to beat in next month's HK Mile. Southern Legend stayed on well to edge Beauty Only for second following a midfield run. He relished the step back up to a mile but will need to lift if he is to challenge the winner in up-and-coming races. Beauty Only came up one-paced in the last 100m with his move from the rear of the pack to just miss second. He was suited by the pace but isn't getting any younger. Singapore Sling ran on a distant fourth travelling midfield on the fence. He was outclassed in this set weights contest. Seasons Bloom made some ground without menacing racing second from the rear.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (186) - THE BOCHK WEALTH MANAGEMENT JOCKEY CLUB MILE - Class G2 - 1600Meters

On arrival at the Start, SEASONS BLOOM had its left front plate refitted.

SEASONS BLOOM was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

PINGWU SPARK, which proved difficult to load, will be required to stalls test satisfactorily prior to being permitted to race again., SEASONS BLOOM shifted out at the start and bumped BEAUTY ONLY.

Passing the 1400 Metres, THEWIZARDOFOZ raced tight inside PINGWU SPARK which, after being bumped by THE GOLDEN AGE, then got its head on the side and shifted in away from that horse.

Approaching and passing the 1100 Metres, SEASONS BLOOM, which improved to be racing inside BEAUTY ONLY, became unbalanced when crowded for room inside that horse which was taken in by BEAUTY GENERATION (Z Purton) which was then shifted out to relieve the tightening to SEASONS BLOOM and BEAUTY ONLY.

Z Purton was severely reprimanded and advised that, in the opinion of the Stewards, he should have shifted his mount out sooner than he did once he became aware that SEASONS BLOOM had improved its position to be racing inside BEAUTY ONLY.

When questioned, Z Purton (BEAUTY GENERATION) stated that after riding his mount along to obtain a forward position in the early stages, the tempo of the race in the early part of the race was strong.

He said rather than becoming involved in a speed battle, he elected to steady BEAUTY GENERATION and obtain a position with cover if possible.

He said after briefly obtaining cover behind SOUTHERN LEGEND passing the 1100 Metres, he was required to shift BEAUTY GENERATION out to relieve the tightening to his inside after the 1100 Metres which resulted in BEAUTY GENERATION racing wide and without cover.

He said when the tempo of the race slowed sufficiently, he then allowed BEAUTY GENERATION to improve and obtain a position outside the leader.

He added rounding the Home Turn BEAUTY GENERATION was inclined to lay out and, when under pressure in the Straight, drifted out abruptly.

He said this is unusual for BEAUTY GENERATION as the horse had previously not shown any inclination to shift out.

The Stewards will monitor the racing manners of BEAUTY GENERATION in its coming starts.

A veterinary inspection of PINGWU SPARK immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BEAUTY GENERATION and SOUTHERN LEGEND were sent for sampling.
