When proceeding to the barriers, HIGH SPEED METRO became unbalanced and fell over, resulting in its rider, K C Leung, being dislodged without incident. After being returned to the barriers, HIGH SPEED METRO was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said that, after the necessary consultations, the horse was suitable to race.
As the start was effected, TELEPHATIA kicked out behind, resulting in the horse being slow to begin.
WIN CHANCE, MEDIC SWORDSMAN and LOYAL CRAFTSMAN were also slow to begin.
Shortly after the start, GENTLEMEN shifted in and bumped FORTUNE GIGGLES.
After the 1500 Metres, AEROLUMINANCE was left racing wide and without cover and was allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead near the 1000 Metres at which time BEST JADE TRIUMPH was left racing wide and without cover.
Passing the 1400 Metres, WIN CHANCE got its head up when being checked away from the heels of LOYAL CRAFTSMAN. TELEPHATIA, which was following, was checked away from the heels of WIN CHANCE in consequence.
Approaching the 1300 Metres, HIGH SPEED METRO commenced to race keenly and was checked away from the heels of GENTLEMEN.
MY FOLKS was held up for clear running from rounding the Home Turn until passing the 300 Metres.
Near the 350 Metres, FORTUNE GIGGLES was bumped by LUCKY SEBRING which, when commencing to give ground, shifted in after being brushed by AEROLUMINANCE.
MEDIC SWORDSMAN was unable to obtain clear running in the Straight and passing the 150 Metres was checked away from the heels of HIGH SPEED METRO. MEDIC SWORDSMAN continued to be held up for clear running for the remainder of the race and consequently was not able to be tested.
Passing the 100 Metres, MY FOLKS, which was being shifted in to improve inside BEST JADE TRIUMPH (B Prebble), was obliged to be directed in away from the heels of that horse which shifted in. This resulted in MY FOLKS having to be checked away from the heels of BEST JADE TRIUMPH and shifting in, causing HIGH SPEED METRO to be checked and MEDIC SWORDSMAN to be hampered. As the Stewards were satisfied that MY FOLKS had not properly established running to the inside of BEST JADE TRIUMPH prior to that horse shifting ground, no further action was taken, however, B Prebble was advised of his obligation to make every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground.
A veterinary inspection of WIN CHANCE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
AEROLUMINANCE, FORTUNE GIGGLES and BEST JADE TRIUMPH were sent for sampling.
