Recap by phillip woo

Drifting in the market, Holiday Sun was nicely rated behind midfield and two deep with cover, rounded the final bend with two wider out and finished willingly to take control 100m out for the win. Favourite, Great Renown bided his time third from the rear and two deep with cover, hit the straight with only Very Well wider out and out-dashed that one to get up for second. Very Well made his run at the rear of the field and two deep, swung the final bend widest out and was running on nicely to make it tight for second. Noble Deluxe made his run in fifth and along the rails, straightened five wide and ran on reasonably well to fill the frame a distant fourth. Flying Chaparral slotted in one-out, one-back in the run, swept to the lead four deep at the 200m and couldn't keep up the momentum over the final 100m as the late-fancied co-favourite. Sleep Well made his run fourth from the rear and along the inside, hit the straight four deep and made some a decent bid late without threatening. Flying In travelled in midfield and on the rails, cornered in three deep and made some ground without menacing. Flora Danica was given an uncontested lead, straightened a length on top and was stopping 100m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (246) - THE CHINESE MANUFACTURERS' ASSOCIATION OF HONG KONG CUP(HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1650 Meters NOVEL WINNING and FLORA DANICA bumped at the start.

Shortly after this, NOVEL WINNING shifted in, resulting in SLEEP WELL being bumped when crowded for room outside FLYING CHAPARRAL.

Passing the 1000 Metres, FLYING IN momentarily raced in restricted room inside NOVEL WINNING.

SLEEP WELL had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Approaching the 200 Metres, NOBLE DELUXE and NOVEL WINNING raced tight.

Passing the 200 Metres, NOVEL WINNING was checked when crowded for room between NOBLE DELUXE and HOLIDAY SUN (Apprentice C Y Ho) which shifted in abruptly.

As the Stewards were satisfied that HOLIDAY SUN!|s movement had been an abrupt one and that Apprentice Ho had taken sufficient measures to prevent his mount shifting further ground after having made the initial movement, the Stewards took no further action other than to advise him to ensure that, wherever possible, he does his best to prevent his mounts from shifting ground.

HO HO LIFE, which was following NOVEL WINNING, was steadied in consequence.

After this, HO HO LIFE had difficulty obtaining clear running after the 100 Metres.

HOLIDAY SUN and GREAT RENOWN were sent for sampling.
