Recap by phillip woo

Mighty Equus was eye-balled early on by Bossa Nova, came to the final bend two lengths clear, went three clear at the 200m and was tippy-toeing while just holding off the late surge of Numero Uno and Celestial Smile for an upset win with a step up to the 1,400m with visors applied. Well-fancied Numero Uno settled midfield and one off the rails, rallied four deep and finished willingly to make it a bob of heads on the wire. It was only his second start with a step up in distance and he'll be hard to beat when next stepping out. Celestial Smile was patiently ridden third from the rear and one off the rails, peeled into the clear with three wider out at the 400m and ran on strongly to make it a thriller on the wire. He remains one to follow. Favourite How Speedy settled fourth from the rear underneath Celestial Smile, was briefly held up between runners while cornering five-to-six deep and ran on without menacing. Hinyuen Paladin settled in the box-seat, stayed to the rails upon straightening and only held his ground when popped the question. Sugar City plugged on without threatening.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (319)-PING SHAN HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1400Metres

BOSSA NOVA began awkwardly.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, CITY POWER, which began awkwardly, failed to muster speed.

From wide barriers, SKIP COURT and HOW SPEEDY were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, STARTING OVER raced in restricted room inside DOUBLE DRAGON which got its head on the side and shifted in.

When being steadied to obtain a position with cover after beginning from a wide barrier, CELESTIAL SMILE proved difficult to settle after the 1300 Metres.

Approaching and passing the 1200 Metres, NUMERO UNO proved difficult to settle and near the 1100 Metres shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of HINYUEN PALADIN.

After the 1000 Metres, SUGAR CITY was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 900 Metres, CITY POWER got its head on the side and hung out.

CITY POWER continued to hang out until after straightening.

Passing the 75 Metres, MIGHTY EQUUS shifted out under pressure.

Over the concluding stages, CELESTIAL SMILE shifted in abruptly under pressure.

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

HOW SPEEDY, MIGHTY EQUUS and NUMERO UNO were sent for sampling.
