Recap by phillip woo

Short-priced favourite Lord Kanaloa settled midfield and two off the rails with cover from a wide gate, rounded the final bend six deep, dashed to the front 250m out and drew clear to stamp himself as the best sprinter on turf in the world. Specked late Sole Power was travelling keenly third from the rear and deep on the course, swung the final bend widest out and finished up willingly to grab Frederick Engels close to home for second. Frederick Engels settled behind midfield and one off the rails, struck a wall of horses five deep upon straightening, got free at the 250m, worked to second at the 80m and was nipped late. Cerise Cherry travelled fourth along the rails, awaited a run on the back of the leader Rich Tapestry one off upon straightening, got a clear run back on the paint at the 250m and wore down that one to inject value into the First-4. Sterling City settled third from the rear along the rails, was clogged up along the inside upon straightening and only gained a free run passing the 100m. Rich Tapestry rushed forward to lead from a midfield gate through steady fractions.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (225)-THE LONGINES HONG KONG SPRINT - Group One - 1200Metres

As the start was effected, LUCKY NINE bounded in the air and consequently lost ground.

SOLE POWER began awkwardly.

TIME AFTER TIME was slow to begin.

Near the 1000 Metres, SOLE POWER, which was proving very difficult to settle and was being steadied to obtain cover, got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of LORD KANALOA (Y Iwata) which shifted in when only just clear.

Y Iwata was advised to ensure that he provides sufficient clearance when shifting ground.

After this, SOLE POWER continued to prove difficult to settle and again got its head up on a number of occasions.

For some distance after the 1000 Metres, CHARLES THE GREAT proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when being checked away from the heels of GO BABY GO.

Near the 900 Metres, EAGLE REGIMENT got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of LORD KANALOA and then rounding the first turn near the 850 Metres got its head on the side and hung out after being brushed by FREDERICK ENGELS which, when proving difficult to settle and awkwardly placed close to the heels of CHARLES THE GREAT, shifted out.

EAGLE REGIMENT continued to hang out and passing the 700 Metres was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SLADE POWER.

TIME AFTER TIME was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Near the 350 Metres, EAGLE REGIMENT raced in restricted room between SOLE POWER and FREDERICK ENGELS which shifted out slightly when held up for clear running and awkwardly placed behind LORD KANALOA.

LUCKY NINE was badly held up for clear running until near the 200 Metres.

The Stewards opened an inquiry into the reason for JWALA (S Drowne) falling near the 50 Metres.

After taking evidence from B Prebble (LUCKY NINE), W Lordan (SLADE POWER), J Murtagh (SOLE POWER), D Whyte (CHARLES THE GREAT), R Moore (RICH TAPESTRY) and T Angland (GO BABY GO, the inquiry was adjourned until a date to be fixed as evidence was not able to be taken from S Drowne who was transported to hospital.

When JWALA fell, JOY AND FUN, which was following, was badly hampered and blundered, resulting in its rider, B Doyle, almost being dislodged.

Over the concluding stages, STERLING CITY, which had been having difficulty obtaining clear running, raced in restricted room between CERISE CHERRY and RICH TAPESTRY.

Close to the finishing line, RICH TAPESTRY was shifted out to relieve the tightening to STERLING CITY and CERISE CHERRY and because of this was not able to be ridden out to the end of the race.

Also close to the finishing line, CERISE CHERRY became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by STERLING CITY.

CHARLES THE GREAT was unable to obtain clear running at any stage in the Straight and consequently was not able to be tested.

Throughout the race, SLADE POWER and JWALA travelled wide and without cover.

LORD KANALOA and SOLE POWER were sent for sampling.
