Recap by phillip woo

First Sight Love was given a well-executed ride three back and one off the rails following a jockey change to Joao Moreira, swung the final bend with three wider out and quickened nicely to take control approaching the 100m with money coming for him late. Formula Won bided his time fourth from the rear and one off the rails from a wide gate, swung the final bend with one deeper out and finished well to be a clear second. Emperor Claudius travelled one-out, one-back behind the leader Flying Chaparral, was revved up at the 450m, assumed the front soon after straightening and found a couple too smart. Towering Storm was patiently ridden to the inside of Formula Won, worked into the clear with one wider out at the 250m and ran on nicely to gun down Absolute Fantasy for a First-4 spot. Flying Chaparral was kept honest on the pace by Invictus, was headed rounding the final bend and yielding ground 200m out with a return to Class Three. Amazingly enjoyed a soft run three back along the rails, came up one-paced when angling into the clear four deep at the 300m and gave up the chase 100m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (255)-SHATIN PASS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

XILAI XIANZI was withdrawn on 17.12.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter WHY NOT (A Suborics).

Before being allowed to race again, XILAI XIANZI will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

TOWERING STORM was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, DISTILL was crowded for room between EMPEROR CLAUDIUS which shifted in and FLYING CHAPARRAL which shifted out after beginning awkwardly.

From wide barriers, FORMULA WON, NOBLE DE BEST and KING!|S FOLKS were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 1400 Metres, DISTILL was steadied away from the heels of FIRST SIGHT LOVE.

Near the 50 Metres, AMAZINGLY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING CHAPARRAL.

In the Straight, EMPEROR CLAUDIUS got its head on the side and hung in, resulting in its rider, B Prebble, having to stop riding and straighten on a number of occasions.

A veterinary inspection of AMAZINGLY and FLYING CHAPARRAL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FIRST SIGHT LOVE and FORMULA WON were sent for sampling.
