Recap by phillip woo

Best-backed late, veteran Joy And Fun was rated in midfield and three deep, rounded the final bend with one wider out and quickened nicely to take control 150m out for an overdue win after several top-grade performances. Favourite Lucky Nine travelled in midfield and one off the rails, cornered in three deep behind runners and eventually got going to wear down Sunny King for second. Sunny King is back in business and will need to be kept safe over 1,400m next time out. Leading City gave a good sight on the speed, straightened nearly a length on top from Little Bridge and gave way for fourth. Rich Unicorn settled third from the rear and two deep, cornered in with two wider out and made some ground without menacing. Little Bridge tracked the good pace of Leading City in the box-seat, shifted one off the fence rounding the final bend and came up one-paced over the final 200m. He's had too many hard runs and may need to be freshened up. Eagle Regiment was a handy fourth, straightened four-to-five deep and couldn't stay in touch over the final 100m. He's best over the straight 1,000m. California Choice made his run at the rear and made some ground near the inside in his best performance around a bend. Let Me Fight kept on evenly over the last 100m, while Sacred Kingdom never did let down. He's beyond his best years.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (378) - THE CHAIRMAN'S SPRINT PRIZE - Hong Kong Group One - 1200 Meters LITTLE BRIDGE and RICH UNICORN bumped at the start.

From the outside barrier, SACRED KINGDOM was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Making the turn near the 850 Metres, LET ME FIGHT got its head up and proved difficult to settle when being steadied away from the heels of LITTLE BRIDGE which shifted in when only just clear.

After the 400 Metres, RICH UNICORN was shifted out to obtain clear running after being momentarily held up behind EAGLE REGIMENT and inside JOY AND FUN.

Throughout the race, BLAZE KING travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of SACRED KINGDOM, EAGLE REGIMENT and LET ME FIGHT after the race did not show any significant findings.

JOY AND FUN and LUCKY NINE were sent for sampling.
