Recap by phillip woo

Cheer made his run second from the rear and three deep, swung the final bend very wide out and let down brilliantly to overhaul Penglai Xianzi inside the final few metres for the win. He's a real freak at the city venue. Penglai Xianzi slipped through along the inside to assume the lead from Amityship and Fulfil A Wish after 200m, established a two-length lead at the 1,200m, straightened comfortably on top and was swamped late while narrowly holding second. Amityship travelled nicely in third and one off the fence, straightened four wide and kept finding more to make it close for second off a light weight, despite a rise in grade. Algarve was under the pump at the 400m, hit the straight with one wider out and finished well to finish just outside the placings. He's in better spirits nowadays, but appears a better prospect at Sha Tin. Handsome Zulu travelled in fifth and one off the fence, rounded the final bend six wide and kept on one-paced over the final 200m. Thumped late in the betting, Upgrading was allowed to find his feet worse than midfield along the rails, hit the straight four wide and made some ground late without ever looking a place threat. Soviet Pearl made his run third from the rear, swung the final bend with two wider out and never was a threat. Mark Up travelled behind midfield and two deep, straightened five wide and found little over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (091) - ABERDEEN HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650 Meters After being loaded, PENGLAI XIANZI became fractious and reared on a number of occasions.

Before being allowed to race again, PENGLAI XIANZI will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

As the start was effected, ADORATION reared and consequently was slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, BUSINESS AS USUAL was taken across behind runners shortly after the start and then passing the winning post on the first occasion was left racing three wide and without cover.

After this, BUSINESS AS USUAL was taken back further in order to obtain cover.

After the 500 Metres, HANDSOME ZULU was checked away from the heels of AMITYSHIP when attempting to obtain a position inside that horse where there was not sufficient room.

MARK UP, which was following, was checked out away from the heels of HANDSOME ZULU, resulting in ALGARVE being taken wider.

A short distance later, SOVIET PEARL was checked away from the heels of MARK UP and in doing so shifted out abruptly, resulting in CHEER being badly hampered when taken wider.

Passing the 400 Metres, MARK UP and ALGARVE bumped, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

As the Stewards were of the view that there was no rider error involved in these incidents, no further action was taken.

Near the 150 Metres, ABSOLUTE HEDGE was steadied away from the heels of FULFIL A WISH which shifted in.

When questioned regarding the performance of MARK UP, O Doleuze stated that he was able to obtain a good position and MARK UP travelled well throughout the race.

He said MARK UP became badly unbalanced when close to the heels of HANDSOME ZULU after the 500 Metres and after this MARK UP, after making contact with ALGARVE, came off the bridle.

He added that whilst MARK UP was disappointing in its failure to close off the race, he felt that there were some circumstances with tonight!|s race.

A veterinary inspection of MARK UP after the race revealed the horse to have sustained a deep laceration wound to the outside of the right hind cannon.

Before being allowed to race again, MARK UP will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
