Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Best City was a handy fifth, though covering ground three deep, rallied five wide upon straightening and needed every inch of the step up to a mile to eventually wear down Liberator by the bob of heads for the win. He'll come on further this run and remains one to follow. Liberator was under the whip to keep his mind on the matter - settling third at the 1,200m, pushed into the clear four deep at the head of the straight, worked to the front at the 200m and kept fighting when headed to go down narrowly. Summer Dash had trouble staying in touch, swung the final bend widest out and was finishing off willingly to get up for third. It was an impressive effort and he remains one to follow at Sha Tin up to 1,800m. Finezza bided his time second from the rear and got going strongly to fill the frame. Specked late, Legend Express sat outside the leader Goodview Successor, worked to the lead 350m out and was outclassed inside the final 100m. He's honest, but appears to be on his mark and will need to find easy pickings. Endless Luck was grinding away without threatening. He needs ratings relief.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (100) - NEOGENCE HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600 Meters SUMMER DASH was hampered shortly after the start when crowded for room between ANTIPASTO and ENDLESS LUCK which shifted out.

Shortly after the start, TOM'S EIGHTH was crowded for room between THE UNTOUCHABLELAD and GLORY OF INDIA which was taken out by INDIGO WAY which in turn was taken out by LIBERATOR.

At the 1400 Metres, INDIGO WAY was steadied when crowded for room between LIBERATOR and GLORY OF INDIA which was racing tight to the inside of BEST CITY.

Over the final 100 Metres, ENDLESS LUCK got its head on the side and lay in.

Throughout the race, BEST CITY travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, M Chadwick stated that from a wide barrier he had been instructed to take SUMMER DASH across behind runners in the early stages.

He said that shortly after the start SUMMER DASH commenced to get out of its ground, therefore he rode the horse along hands and heels in an endeavour to have it pick up the bit.

He said he continued to ride SUMMER DASH along, however, it was not until he slapped the horse down the shoulder with the whip near the 1000 Metres that SUMMER DASH commenced to improve its position and travel.

He added that at the entrance to the Straight he shifted SUMMER DASH to the outside of runners and the horse closed off the race strongly.

BEST CITY and LIBERATOR were sent for sampling.
