Recap by phillip woo

In-the-betting late, Liberator was quite content to settle one off the fence in second behind Super Pistachio, made his move to hit the front 600m out, straightened a length on top and showed his dourness to hold off his chief rivals Ambitious Dragon and Dominant at bay over the last 100m for an overdue win. Ambitious Dragon was ridden cold through slow fractions, swung the final bend widest out, loomed a winning chance at the 100m and peaked 50m out in his first crack at the 2,400m. Favourite Dominant settled second from the rear, cornered in with one wider out, loomed ominously at the 200m and kept on one-paced over the last 100m. Punted late, Irian settled third and one off the fence, straightened three deep and couldn't keep up the gallop over the final 150m. Mr Medici enjoyed a soft run along the fence and never found much. Super Pistachio went a crawl on the front and was stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (644) - THE STANDARD CHARTERED CHAMPIONS & CHATER CUP - Hong Kong Group One - 2400 Meters MR MEDICI was slow to begin.

For some distance shortly after the start, DOMINANT and MR MEDICI raced tight.

Passing the 1400 Metres, SUPER PISTACHIO became unbalanced after shifting in towards the rail of its own accord.

Rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight, DOMINANT got its head on the side and lay in and near the 100 Metres was awkwardly placed outside the heels of LIBERATOR.

DOMINANT, LIBERATOR and AMBITIOUS DRAGON were sent for sampling.
