Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Glory Vase let down very well to overhaul Pyledriver 60m out after straightening widest out and one from the rear to ring up a second victory in this race from three raids on Hong Kong. He's a quality stayer from Japan. Pyledriver did everything right but found one better after claiming the lead rounding the final bend following a cosy run on the back of the speed. Ebaiyra stayed on a distant third after a prominent run one off the fence. She ran well but wasn't good enough and prefers a softer surface. Columbus County ran on late to fill the frame without menacing the top three after settling third last in the run. He was again the best of the locals this year but isn't good enough on the world stage. Punted late Stay Foolish was stopping 150m out after pressuring Reliable Team for the lead. It was wasn't a bad effort in his first outing outside Japan. Mogul never landed a blow following a rails run in midfield. He's not the same horse after winning this race last year. Butterfield was a handful when failing to settle at the rear for Damian Lane. Reliable Team set slow fractions in front but was never given a breather at any time and was gone at the top of the straight.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (246) - THE LONGINES HONG KONG VASE - Class G1 - 2400Meters

RELIABLE TEAM shifted out at the start and hampered MOGUL PYLEDRIVER stumbled at the start.

Passing the 2200 Metres, GLORY VASE was crowded for room inside COLUMBUS COUNTY which shifted in when racing very tight inside BUTTERFIELD (D Lane) which shifted in.

BUTTERFIELD was then shifted out after the 2200 Metres to relieve the crowding to COLUMBUS COUNTY and GLORY VASE.

D Lane was severely reprimanded and told that, in the opinion of the Stewards, having been made aware that GLORY VASE was improving its position inside COLUMBUS COUNTY, he should have relieved the pressure far sooner than he did on this occasion.

After this, when left racing wide and without cover, BUTTERFIELD was steadied to obtain cover behind COLUMBUS COUNTY.

When being steadied, BUTTERFIELD got its head up and travelled keenly for some distance passing the winning post on the first occasion.

BUTTERFIELD was able to obtain cover behind COLUMBUS COUNTY near the 1600 Metres.

In the early part of the Straight, COLUMBUS COUNTY lay in under pressure.

The performance of RELIABLE TEAM, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, RELIABLE TEAM 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 RELIABLE TEAM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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

GLORY VASE and PYLEDRIVER were sent for sampling.
