From a wide barrier, HAIR TRIGGER was shifted across behind runners to obtain cover in the early stages.
Also from a wide barrier, HANG’S DECISION was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
Near the 1000 Metres, CALL ME AWESOME, which travelled wide and without cover throughout the race, commenced to prove very difficult to settle.
Making the turn after the 900 Metres, PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT was awkwardly placed behind HARBOUR NOVA.
HARBOUR NOVA lost its left front plate near the 700 Metres.
Passing the 400 Metres, CHUNG WAH SPIRIT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of JING JING WIN.

Throughout the race, BLAZE STAMINA travelled wide and without cover.
When questioned regarding the performance of HAPPY HAPPY STAR, J Moreira stated that, from the outside barrier, he rode his mount positively in the early stages to obtain a forward position, however, due to a number of runners going forward, he did not believe it was in the best interests of the horse to continue to pursue the lead and for this reason he elected, after the 1000 Metres, to steady his mount and obtain cover. He said HAPPY HAPPY STAR initially got its head up when being steadied, however, he was able to shift in to obtain cover after the 900 Metres. He said when he did this HAPPY HAPPY STAR raced greenly and appeared to resent racing behind runners with the kickback. He added in the early part of the Straight HAPPY HAPPY STAR initially responded to his riding, however, the horse came under pressure over the final 200 Metres and then finished off the race one-paced. He said at this stage of its career HAPPY HAPPY STAR lacks maturity and as such today’s run was not as disappointing as it may have seemed. A veterinary inspection of HAPPY HAPPY STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
JING JING WIN, RIGHT CALL and HANG’S DECISION were sent for sampling.
