AMAZING TRAVIS and PRIME MORTAR jumped only fairly.
ABOVE ALL jumped awkwardly and then from a wide barrier was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
Shortly after the start, SEE U AGAIN was taken out by ONE FOR ALL and was then shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
From the outside barrier, TELECOM SPEED was also shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
NOBLE ACE was bumped shortly after the start by CHARMING STEED which shifted out. NOBLE ACE then raced keenly in the early and middle stages and refused to settle and for some distance after the 900 Metres was checked away from the heels of CHARMING STEED. TELECOM SPEED, which was following, was steadied to avoid the heels of NOBLE ACE near the 800 Metres.
WOOD ON FIRE lost its right front plate near the 1000 Metres.
When placed under pressure in the Straight, SPICY SO SMART lay in and near the 150 Metres was steadied away from ISLAND SURPRISE which shifted out slightly.
NOBLE ACE lay in in the Straight.
Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of C Wong (CHARMING STEED), 5th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horse’s finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ensure that he fully rides his mounts out to the finish of the race.
After the race, K C Leung (PRIME MORTAR) reported that his mount was obliged to race wide and without cover for the majority of the event and carrying top weight tonight was unable to finish the race off. A veterinary inspection of PRIME MORTAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
ONE FOR ALL and WOOD ON FIRE were sent for sampling.
