YEUNG SING began awkwardly.
KHARU and ELECTRONIC GOSPEL bumped on jumping.
From a wide barrier, RISING POWER was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
Despite being ridden along in the early stages, ELECTRONIC GOSPEL failed to muster speed and approaching the winning post on the first occasion was shifted across behind runners.
Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, HOLY MAC was checked when crowded for room inside VERY WELL which initially got its head on the side and lay in away from BLACK STAR (M L Yeung) which was shifting in. As the Stewards were of the opinion that this incident had principally resulted from VERY WELL laying in despite the efforts of its rider, no further action was taken other than M L Yeung was advised to ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room for runners to his inside where circumstances permit.
Passing the winning post on the first occasion, LIGHTNING AND GOLD was checked when crowded for room inside VERY WELL which, after initially being taken in marginally by BLACK STAR, was then taken in further by that horse which was momentarily tightened by AMAZING GIFT (N Callan). Both M L Yeung and N Callan were advised that whilst the Stewards were of the opinion that they had permitted their respective mounts to shift in marginally which contributed to the crowding to LIGHTNING AND GOLD, they could not be satisfied that the action of either rider was sufficient to warrant a charge of careless riding, however, both M L Yeung and N Callan were severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that they make every endeavour to prevent their mounts from shifting in and causing interference to other runners in similar circumstances.
Approaching the 1100 Metres, BLACK STAR was awkwardly placed behind VERY WELL which was racing close to the heels of AMAZING GIFT when proving difficult to settle.
After the 1100 Metres, ELECTRONIC GOSPEL shifted out away from the heels of KHARU and was then left racing wide and without cover.
In the early part of the Straight, BLACK STAR was awkwardly placed outside AMAZING GIFT which shifted out when giving ground.
Also in the early part of the Straight, KHARU was awkwardly placed inside YEUNG SING and passing the 200 Metres was shifted to the outside of that horse into clear running.
A veterinary inspection of AMAZING GIFT immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm. Before being allowed to race again, AMAZING GIFT will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
A veterinary inspection of VERY WELL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
RISING POWER and LIGHTNING AND GOLD were sent for sampling.
