Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Time After Time was restrained to fifth and one off the fence after jumping alertly at the 1,000m, cornered in four deep, swept to the front at the 200m and kept on nicely for a comfortable win. Tai Sing Yeh made his run second from the rear and along the inside, straightened three deep with a huge task in front of him and threaded his way through the field to get up strongly for second. Groovy enjoyed the box-seat run behind the genuine pace of Blaze King, worked to second at the 100m and was pipped late for second. Flying Colours settled worse than midfield and two deep, cornered in five wide and stayed on all right without threatening. Paganini's Soul settled third from the rear and two deep, rounded the final bend widest out and was hitting the line with purpose. He's knocking on the door and is looking for a 1,400m trip at Sha Tin. Touch Go made his run at the tail of the field, turned the final bend five wide and was hitting the line reasonably well after splitting runners at 150m. Final Answer sat outside the leader Blaze King, was under the pump entering the straight three deep and only plugged on evenly over the last 150m in another disappointing performance. Blaze King was stopping 150m out as expected. Windicator Power was posted three deep behind midfield, swung the final bend with one wider out and found nothing under a persistent left whip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (442) - BRIAR HANDICAP - Class 1 - 1200 Meters DYNAMIC BLITZ began awkwardly and was slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, TOUCH GO was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

When being crossed by FINAL ANSWER after the 1000 Metres, TIME AFTER TIME proved very difficult to settle, got its head up and shifted out, resulting in FLYING COLOURS being checked when crowded for room between TIME AFTER TIME and WINDICATOR POWER.

PAGANINIS SOUL, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, WINDICATOR POWER was checked away from the heels of TUSCAN SPIRIT which was steadied when racing in restricted room between TIME AFTER TIME and GOOD WORDS which got its head on the side and shifted in slightly.

PAGANINIS SOUL, which was following, was shifted out away from the heels of WINDICATOR POWER in consequence.

TAI SING YEH had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

TOUCH GO also had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and after the 200 Metres raced tight between TUSCAN SPIRIT which was giving ground and GOOD WORDS.

Passing the 50 Metres, TAI SING YEH was shifted in away from the heels of TIME AFTER TIME.

Throughout the race, TUSCAN SPIRIT and GOOD WORDS travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of WINDICATOR POWER after the race did not show any significant findings.
