Recap by phillip woo

Newcomer Toronado Phantom let down smartly down the outside to overhaul favourite Turbo Power 50m out after a patient ride second last from a wide gate. Trainer John Size does know how to get them firing first-up and it appears like he'll get a further trip going forward as well. Turbo Power did everything right get the win after surging to the lead near the 200m settling one off in second. He was carrying top weight and clearly has more wins coming shortly. Great King stayed on well to finish a non-threatening third after a box-seat run. It was an improved effort second-up over a longer trip here after disappointing as one of the favourites on debut. HK Dragon closed off steadily to fill the frame after racing greenly wide without cover in midfield. He's flashed ability in two of his three runs but clearly will need more time and education. Super Kingdom kept on evenly following a one-off run travelling midfield. The rise in trip didn't make much of a difference third-up here. Firming late to jump near favourite, Smart Idea didn't quite get the trip after driving to the front along the inside 900m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (689) - PAKISTAN STAR PLATE - Class GRIFFIN - 1200Meters

TORONADO PHANTOM began only fairly.

COMPULSORY shifted in at the start and bumped HANG'S CHOICE.

HK DRAGON and CHIU CHOW WARRIOR brushed at the start.

From the outside barrier, SUPER KINGDOM was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover and shifted ground on a number of occasions.

Passing the 1000 Metres, HK DRAGON travelled keenly when being steadied to obtain cover.

HK DRAGON was then left racing wide and without cover near the 900 Metres when SUPER KINGDOM improved its position to be racing inside that horse.

HK DRAGON then raced greenly and shifted ground on a number of occasions before making the turn near the 850 Metres awkwardly.

The performance of CHIU CHOW WARRIOR, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, CHIU CHOW WARRIOR will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of CHIU CHOW WARRIOR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, J Moreira was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of SMART IDEA.

He said the horse travelled well in the lead in the early and middle stages, but after coming under pressure passing the 400 Metres then did not finish off the race as anticipated.

A veterinary inspection of SMART IDEA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of COMPULSORY immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

TORONADO PHANTOM and TURBO POWER were sent for sampling.
