Recap by phillip woo

Rocket Let Win settled midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out and let down nicely on the biased middle section of the course to get up 20m from the line for a first win in Hong Kong at his ninth start. Eastern Promise was able to get a sweet run in fifth and one off the rails from an awkward gate, turned the final bend with three wider out, briefly found the front 50m out and couldn't repel the winner's burst. Late-fancied favourite Sight Believer settled one-out, one-back in the run, straightened four deep, assumed a narrow lead passing the 100m and was swamped in the final few metres, despite a step up in grade. Early favourite The Prince led along the rails, came to the final bend a length on top and grudgingly gave way over the final 100m. Super Fresh enjoyed the box-seat run along the rails, stayed to the inner upon straightening and came up flat in the final 150m with money coming for him late. He had no excuses. Tomodachi cornered three deep and was yielding ground at the 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (235)-NAM LONG SHAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Metres

BUNDLE OF JOY was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (skin infection over back).

Before being allowed to race again, BUNDLE OF JOY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

STARTING OVER was slow to begin and shortly after the start was taken across behind runners.

SECRET AGENT began only fairly and a short distance after the start was checked when crowded for room between LYRIC ACE and SIGHT BELIEVER, both of which shifted ground.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, SUPER FRESH got its head on the side and became unbalanced after shifting in and making contact with the running rail.

In the Straight, EASTERN PROMISE got its head on the side and hung in under pressure.

Over the concluding stages, SIGHT BELIEVER raced tight inside EASTERN PROMISE which, when continuing to lay in, shifted in further away from ROCKET LET WIN which shifted in over the final 100 Metres and particularly over the concluding stages.

SIGHT BELIEVER, ROCKET LET WIN and EASTERN PROMISE were sent for sampling.
