Recap by phillip woo

Cape Canaveral sat on the back of the speed in third along the fence, straightened three deep and took control 200m out for the win after putting the writing on the wall at Sha Tin on opening day. Tour De Force was parked three deep without much cover around midfield from a wide gate, turned the final bend with two wider out and finished up willingly to collar Uwillbeglorious 50m out for second. Uwillbeglorious settled midfield and on the rails, switched into the clear three deep at the 200m, worked to second at the 100m and kept on nicely. Sea The Pearls settled behind midfield and on the paint, straightened four deep, ducked inside a tiring Gold Racer at the 150m and just came up short. Green Zone was patiently ridden third from the rear, swung the final bend with one wider out and was getting going late. Favourite Gold Racer stalked the genuine pace of Gold Edition to his outside, straightened three deep, hung out under pressure and came up one-paced over the last 150m. Gold Edition went a good clip on the lead, straightened just over a length on top and was stopping 100m out. Quantum Power made his run in midfield and two deep, cornered five deep and found nothing under pressure at the 250m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (054) - ISLAND HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters FINN MACCOOL was withdrawn on 24.9.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (colic) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter GERONIMO MEADOW.

Before being allowed to race again, FINN MACCOOL will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GOLD EDITION shifted in at the start and bumped the hindquarters of QUANTUM POWER.

SEA THE PEARLS became unbalanced shortly after the start when bumped by GOLD RACER.

Shortly after the start, UWILLBEGLORIOUS was steadied when crowded for room between QUANTUM POWER and CAPE CANAVERAL which shifted out.

UWILLBEGLORIOUS became unbalanced near the 1000 Metres.

Near the 900 Metres, QUANTUM POWER got its head up and proved very difficult to settle when being checked away from the heels of AEROSA.

After the 500 Metres, QUANTUM POWER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of AEROSA which was being ridden along to maintain its position.

Rounding the Home Turn, GOLD RACER got its head on the side and hung out.

After the 200 Metres, TURF MAGIC was awkwardly placed inside the heels of SEA THE PEARLS which shifted to the inside of GOLD RACER.

For some distance after this, TURF MAGIC was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SEA THE PEARLS.

Throughout the race, JOYFUL LUCK travelled wide and without cover.

Trainer C Fownes explained that he instructed Apprentice C Y Ho, the rider of GREEN ZONE, to take that horse across behind runners at the start as it had hung out making the first turn at its most recent start.

He said tonight, from barrier 9, he felt that if use was made of GREEN ZONE that it may again be left racing wide.

GOLD RACER, CAPE CANAVERAL and TOUR DE FORCE were sent for sampling.
