Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Aerovelocity made his run second from the rear after rearing at the start, stayed to the inside upon straightening and finished willingly to grab victory 50m out. Firming late in betting, Super Jockey dictated the running, cornered a length on top and went down fighting off a light weight. Smart Volatility was covering plenty of ground third from the rear from an outside gate, swung the final bend very wide and finished off nicely to make it close at the wire in a huge effort. Punted late, Able Friend peaked on his run 100m out after looming large at the 200m after a deep run fourth from the rear. He'll come on from the run and will be hard to beat over a more preferable mile distance. Golden Harvest settled midfield and one off the rails, straightened five deep and finished well when switching off heels for a clear run at the 250m. He should have gone closer. Bundle Of Joy made his run one off in second, straightened three deep and came up one-paced over the final 150m. Charles The Great made some ground with two wider out without menacing from the back.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (118)-THE PREMIER BOWL (HANDICAP) - Hong Kong Group Two - 1200Metres

As the start was effected, AEROVELOCITY bounded in the air, resulting its rider, Z Purton, becoming unbalanced.

After this, AEROVELOCITY was shifted across behind runners.

GO BABY GO got its head on the side and shifted out at the start, resulting in FREDERICK ENGELS being taken out onto ABLE FRIEND.

BULLISH FRIEND began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped GOLDEN HARVEST.

From wide barriers, SMART VOLATILITY and CHARLES THE GREAT were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 600 Metres, SMART VOLATILITY was taken wider by ABLE FRIEND which shifted out.

GOLDEN HARVEST was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 350 Metres was steadied when disappointed for a run between GO BABY GO and STERLING CITY which shifted in.

GOLDEN HARVEST was then held up behind STERLING CITY until near the 250 Metres.

Passing the 100 Metres, SUPER JOCKEY shifted out under pressure.

Close to the finishing line, ABLE FRIEND was awkwardly placed outside SUPER JOCKEY.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of STERLING CITY, J Moreira stated that STERLING CITY was worked up in the Parade Ring and behind the barriers which was unusual for the horse.

He said after being left racing in a three wide position and without cover near the 800 Metres, STERLING CITY gave him only a limited response in the early part of the Straight when asked to quicken.

He said, in his opinion, STERLING CITY was disappointing in the manner in which it gave ground, particularly over the latter stages of the Straight.

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

AEROVELOCITY and SUPER JOCKEY were sent for sampling.
