Recap by phillip woo

Final Answer was well rated on the front, cornered in nearly two lengths on top and kept on nicely for the win with a drop in grade in a pace-dominated race. Cheetah Boy pressed forward to sit second at the 1,000m, straightened four deep and stayed on well to be a clear second. Regency Luck settled a handy fifth along the fence, stayed to the inside upon straightening and couldn't make much of an impression while holding New Glory late for third. New Glory was a prominent fourth in the run, cornered in five wide and made some steady ground. Withinmyheart settled midfield and two deep, rallied three-to-four wide upon straightening and made only a mild impression. St Didar recovered after breaking slowing to settle midfield and on the rails, rounded the final bend three wide and made no impression. I Smell Money got going late, while Flashing Aura ran on passed tired runners with money coming on late.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (534) - THE SKOL CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 2 - 1200 Meters ST DIDAR began very awkwardly, threw its head up and struck U Rispoli, its rider, in the head.

After the race, U Rispoli was examined by the Club's medical officers and passed fit to fulfil his remaining riding engagement.

I SMELL MONEY began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped CHINA POWER.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, CHINA POWER was slow to muster speed.

Shortly after the start, CHEETAH BOY was steadied away from the heels of FINAL ANSWER (B Prebble) which shifted in when not properly clear.

B Prebble was reprimanded.

After this incident, CHEETAH BOY got its head on the side and lay out and because of this travelled wide and without cover throughout the race.

From wide barriers, MY NAME IS BOND and FLASHING AURA were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 650 Metres, WITHINMYHEART got its head on the side and was steadied when awkwardly placed close to the heels of CHINA POWER.

Approaching the 100 Metres, ELEGANCE DESIRE was steadied away from the heels of WITHINMYHEART which shifted to the outside of NEW GLORY into clear running.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of M L Yeung (WITHINMYHEART), 5th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horse's finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on CHARITY SPIRIT at the request of Trainer C S Shum.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, CHARITY SPIRIT will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Also after the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that ELEGANCE DESIRE and ST DIDAR had each lost its right front plate.

A veterinary inspection of FLASHING AURA, CHINA POWER and I SMELL MONEY after the race did not show any significant findings.

REGENCY LUCK, FINAL ANSWER and CHEETAH BOY were sent for sampling.
