Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Sea Diamond settled midfield and two deep, cornered in four deep in traffic and eventually hit top gear when the gap came at the 200m to run down Forever Elation in deep stretch. He's got plenty of scope to head higher. Forever Elation made his run worse than midfield and on the fence, cornered two deep, pushed four wide into the clear at the 300m, hit the lead 50m out and was no match for the winner. Deep Thinker enjoyed the box-seat run, peeled into the clear of a tiring All Victory, swept to the lead 250m out and found a couple too smart while just holding Double Dragon for third. Double Dragon shared the lead with All Victory underneath him after getting over from gate 14, assumed a narrow lead three deep at the 300m and kept on gamely in a nice performance. Giggles Forever made his run fourth from the rear and two deep, straightened just outside Sea Diamond, was still short of room until a gap opened between runners with three wider out at the 250m and was finishing up nicely. Mi Savvy enjoyed the ideal run one-out, one-back, straightened four deep and was struggling 200m out with a step up in trip off a 1,000m win. Rolled-up in betting, King's Pact bided his time at the rear and two deep, swung the final bend with one wider and made some ground late without ever menacing. He's looking for an ever longer trip. Medallist never fired after resuming from a heart irregularity in March.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (618) - THE LI CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1400 Meters SEA DIAMOND and MI SAVVY bumped at the start as did UWILLBEGLORIOUS and KINGS PACT.

Passing the 1000 Metres, KINGS PACT got its head up when awkwardly place close to the heels of MEDALLIST.

Approaching the 900 Metres, after initially racing in front of UWILLBEGLORIOUS, ALL FRIENDS shifted out slightly when racing close to the heels of MERIDIAN TREASURE.

A short distance later, UWILLBEGLORIOUS, which was racing keenly, was checked after improving inside the heels of ALL FRIENDS (H W Lai) which shifted back in.

H W Lai was advised to ensure that he exercises due care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Near the 400 Metres, AFFLUENCE OF RAIN raced in restricted room between ALL FRIENDS and MERIDIAN TREASURE.

Near the 300 Metres, KINGS PACT and UWILLBEGLORIOUS bumped.

Then passing the 200 Metres, KINGS PACT was crowded for room between UWILLBEGLORIOUS and MEDALLIST which got its head on the side and shifted out marginally.

In this incident, UWILLBEGLORIOUS became unbalanced after being bumped by KINGS PACT.

SEA DIAMOND and GIGGLES FOREVER were unable to obtain clear running until near the 200 Metres.

Throughout the race, MERIDIAN TREASURE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of MI SAVVY, O Doleuze stated that his mount, which was attempting 1400 Metres for the first occasion in Hong Kong today, travelled well until rounding the Home Turn at which time the horse came under pressure.

He said when placed under pressure MI SAVVY did not show the same turn of foot that it had in its previous races and over the final 200 Metres weakened out of the race.

He did say that, in his opinion, the distance of todays race was not the cause of MI SAVVYs disappointing performance rather that the horse did not seem to appreciate the loose nature of todays track.

A veterinary inspection of MI SAVVY after the race did not show any significant findings.

SEA DIAMOND and FOREVER ELATION were sent for sampling.
