Recap by phillip woo

Second favourite Akeed Mofeed was bottled up for a run along the rails upon straightening following a ground saving run in midfield, eased out at the 150m and ran down Tokei Halo 30m out for the victory. Tokei Halo rolled straight to the front from gate five, cornered near two lengths on top after a muddling pace and went down fighting with late-market action. Firming late Cirrus Des Aigles travelled fourth and one off the rails, straightened two-to-three deep and kept on gamely to just hold third from favourite Military Attack, who came from a position second from the rear and three wider out. Military Attack wasn't suited by the pace. Side Glance settled fifth from the rear and one off the rails, eased out five deep at the 400m and ran on nicely to finish just out of the placings. Blazing Speed travelled fourth from the back along the rails, peeled four deep upon straightening and worked home reasonably well. Endowing made his run third from the rear and outside Military Attack, swung the final bend with one wider out and never was a factor. He's already had a terrific season and may be looking forward to a short break.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (228)-THE LONGINES HONG KONG CUP - Group One - 2000Metres

GRANDEUR began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of LITTLE MIKE.

BLAZING SPEED, which was leaning on the inside of its stall as the start was effected, was slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, RAINBOW CHIC was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1800 Metres, ENDOWING was crowded for room between CIRRUS DES AIGLES and GRANDEUR which shifted out away from the heels of AKEED MOFEED.

MILITARY ATTACK and BLAZING SPEED, which were following, were hampered in consequence.

For some distance approaching and passing the 1700 Metres, SIDE GLANCE proved very difficult to settle and after the 1600 Metres was shifted out across the heels of GRANDEUR, resulting in ENDOWING being taken wider.

ENDOWING was then steadied to obtain a trailing position behind SIDE GLANCE.

Approaching the 800 Metres, LITTLE MIKE shifted out away from the heels of SAME WORLD and after this was left racing wide and without cover.

At the 500 Metres, MILITARY ATTACK raced tight between ENDOWING and BLAZING SPEED which shifted to the outside of NEATICO to improve its position.

Rounding the Home Turn, LITTLE MIKE got its head on the side and lay out.

In the early part of the Straight, BLAZING SPEED was shifted in away from the heels of SIDE GLANCE.

At the 400 Metres, ENDOWING was shifted out away from the heels of LITTLE MIKE which shifted out when commencing to give ground.

RAINBOW CHIC, which was racing to the outside of ENDOWING, was hampered in consequence.

AKEED MOFEED was badly held up for clear running from on straightening until passing the 300 Metres when unable to improve inside TOKEI HALO.

After this, AKEED MOFEED had difficulty obtaining clear running to the outside of TOKEI HALO and inside CIRRUS DES AIGLES until near the 200 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of ENDOWING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MILITARY ATTACK, AKEED MOFEED and TOKEI HALO were sent for sampling.
