Recap by phillip woo

Eagle Spirit pressed forward to lead through even fractions, cornered nearly two lengths on top, opened up nearly four lengths at the 200m and coasted home well in hand for an overdue win with the side winkers applied. Favourite Cao Bao In settled third from the rear and two deep, rounded the final bend five wide, ducked inside for a clear run at the 200m and finished up well to be a clear second. Vigor Delight made his run second from the rear and three deep with cover, swung the final bend widest out and ran on well to overhaul Enabling for a placing. Enabling settled midfield and two deep with cover, rounded the final bend six wide and kept whacking away. Fun Heroes enjoyed a cosy run in the box-seat, worked to second three deep at the 350m and was struggling 100m. Super Strike bided his time behind midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend four wide and made some ground. Straight Forward was making a steady bid down the far outside at the 300m when the race was all over. Connoisseur's Pick was posted three deep in fourth, rushed up to settle outside the leader at the 1,000m, and was a spent force at the 200m. Specked late, Tonbridge kept on one-paced without ever looking a threat with a step up in trip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (500) - THE CUHK ALUMNI CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 2000 Meters After being loaded, CAI BAO IN became fractious.

Before being allowed to race again, CAI BAO IN will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

VIGOR DELIGHT was slow to begin.

FUN HEROES and OWNERS GLORY made heavy contact at the start, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

Shortly after the start, CONNOISSEURS PICK, which began awkwardly, was steadied when crowded for room between TONBRIDGE and RUN THE DISTANCE which shifted in.

CONNOISSEURS PICK travelled wide and without cover until near the 1000 Metres at which point it improved to race outside the lead.

After the 1000 Metres, OWNERS GLORY was left racing without cover.

Approaching the 250 Metres, CAI BAO IN was steadied and shifted to the inside of CONNOISSEURS PICK to continue improving.

Passing the 150 Metres, SUPER STRIKE raced in restricted room between ENABLING and VIGOR DELIGHT and over the concluding stages was shifted out away from the heels of VIGOR DELIGHT.

When questioned, O Doleuze (STRAIGHT FORWARD) stated that after racing at the rear of the field throughout the early and middle stages, his mount improved its position to be racing behind VIGOR DELIGHT near the 600 Metres.

He said he followed that horse into the Straight, however, VIGOR DELIGHT quickened better than STRAIGHT FORWARD did in the early part of the Straight.

He said he shifted STRAIGHT FORWARD to the outside of runners and the horse commenced to close off the race satisfactorily, however, over the final 150 Metres finished off only one-paced.

A veterinary inspection of STRAIGHT FORWARD and OWNERS GLORY after the race did not show any significant findings.

EAGLE SPIRIT and CAI BAO IN were sent for sampling.
