Recap by phillip woo

It was a fantastic training performance by John Size to produce a winning display from Entrapment, who had been off the scene for over a year. He travelled one-off the far side in a line of six for the lead, hit the front 400m out and kept up a strong gallop to remain unbeaten in eight starts. Sacred Kingdom made his run second from the rear, weaved his way to the centre of the course at the 400m and was eating up the ground to be a clear second under a big weight. It was a big run in defeat. Let Me Fight made his run near the far side and third from the rear after being crowded off the jump before running on nicely to edge California Choice for a placing. Pummelled late to start favourite, California Choice was up challenging for the lead without cover on the far side and kept on gamely with a huge jump in class off a light weight. Admiration was beaten for speed but closed off nicely. He's a quality type and is one to follow over the 1,200m or 1,400m next time out. Blaze King led briefly on the stands side, but was simply outclassed over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (061) - THE SHA TIN SPRINT TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Hong Kong Group Three - 1000 Meters Soon after jumping, SWEET SANETTE was crowded for room between ADMIRATION and BLAZE KING which got its head on the side and shifted in.

Approaching the 400 Metres, DIM SUM was steadied away from the heels of ENTRAPMENT which shifted out.

After passing the 400 Metres, LITTLE BRIDGE attempted to improve its position to the outside of BLAZE KING, however, was disappointed when BLAZE KING shifted out soon after.

LITTLE BRIDGE was then directed back in, however, remained to be held up behind SWEET SANETTE and BLAZE KING, both of which commenced to give ground.

As a consequence, LITTLE BRIDGE struck the heels of BLAZE KING at the 100 Metres and blundered.

Inside the 300 Metres, SACRED KINGDOM was momentarily held up when being switched in across the heels of CALIFORNIA CHOICE in order to find clear running.

When questioned, B Doyle stated that SWEET SANETTE did not show the early speed as he anticipated, however, eventually took up a prominent position.

He added that SWEET SANETTE was never travelling on the bit and was a beaten horse prior to the 200 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of SWEET SANETTE and LITTLE BRIDGE after the race did not show any significant findings.

CALIFORNIA CHOICE, ENTRAPMENT and SACRED KINGDOM were sent for sampling.
