Recap by phillip woo

Same World was tactically ridden to score a nice win. He was posted behind midfield and two off the rails with cover on the back of a slow pace, left without cover four deep at the 1,000m, drove forward at the 700m to quickly establish a clear lead at the 600m, cornered three lengths on top and held off the late surge of Rainbow Chic for the win. Rainbow Chic travelled one off underneath Same World early on, was shuffled back to have one behind him at the 1,200m, swung the final bend widest out and pulled back a lot of ground late to be a clear second. Best-backed late Lucky Forever was up vying for the lead four deep early on until narrowly finding the front one off from Business As Usual at the 1,200m, was left flat-footed at the 600m by Same World, cornered four deep and kept plugging away to just hold Endowing for third, despite a sharp rise in class. Endowing was handy along the rails, shifted into the clear four-to-five deep upon straightening and ran on steadily under a big weight. Outdoor Pegasus travelled effectively one-out, one-back, rounded the final bend with two wider out and kept grinding away to be a clear fifth. Little Dreams bided his time second from the rear, pushed into the clear with one wider out at the 250m and ran on passed beaten rivals. Pure Champion travelled without cover up with the leaders and was stopping 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (311)-THE JANUARY CUP (HANDICAP) - Hong Kong Group Three - 1800Metres

LIBERATOR began awkwardly and then despite being ridden along in the early stages failed to muster speed.

Approaching the 1200 Metres, RAINBOW CHIC got its head up on a number of occasions and proved difficult to settle when awkwardly placed close to the heels of OUTDOOR PEGASUS and racing tight inside SAME WORLD.

Passing the 500 Metres and again making the Home Turn, BUSINESS AS USUAL became unbalanced after racing tight inside LUCKY FOREVER which got its head on the side and shifted in slightly.

Throughout the race, PURE CHAMPION travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that RAINBOW CHIC was found to have sustained a small wound to the right hind outside bulb of the heel.

A veterinary inspection of LITTLE DREAMS and BUSINESS AS USUAL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SAME WORLD and RAINBOW CHIC were sent for sampling.
