In stifling 32 degree heat that left many runners looking worse for wear, it was no surprise to see Apollo Cavalier a nervous lather of sweat before the Pok Fu Lam Reservoir Road Handicap. But trainer Me Tsui Yu-sak and jockey Gerald Mosse were adamant the skittish gelding's pre-race condition was actually an improvement on his usual pre-race perspiratory efforts - and so it proved when he broke his maiden with an all-the-way win.

The Longines Hong Kong International Races had everything: star power on and off the track, great weather, fierce competition and even that little bit of nail-biting drama that ended well as Horse Of The Year Ambitious Dragon overcame an 11th-hour emergency, was passed fit to run then stamped his authority on the meeting.
