BEST SMILE got its head up on jumping and began awkwardly.
From wide barriers, SPICY GRILL, SWEETLY BABY and TELECOM MISSILE were all shifted across behind runners soon after the start.
Approaching and passing the 700 Metres, CHAIRMAN LO travelled keenly and was steadied away from the heels of SPONTANEOUS.
For a short distance after straightening, CHAIRMAN LO was awkwardly placed between TANG TREASURE and COMPASSION SPIRIT before being shifted to the outside of COMPASSION SPIRIT to improve.
Approaching the 200 Metres, the whip of K C Leung (SPICY GRILL) became momentarily caught up with the upper body of T H So (TELECOM MISSILE).
APOLLOS BOW and TANG TREASURE travelled wide and without cover throughout the race and consequently gave ground in the Straight.
The performance of DASHING GRACE, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable. Before being allowed to race again, DASHING GRACE 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 and DASHING GRACE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
A veterinary inspection of BEST SMILE immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse’s trachea.
GOOD LUCK FRIEND and YEE CHEONG PEGASUS were sent for sampling.
