Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on choice, Designs On Rome was ridden patiently third from the rear and three deep with cover, was revved up 700m out, swung the final bend furthest out and dashed strongly to nail Military Attack on the wire by a nose. Military Attack settled behind midfield and one off the rails, cornered two from the right, swept to the front 50m out and kept on gamely to lose out in a bob of heads. Outsider Criterion settled one off in second behind the leader Same World, advanced to the front 300m out and kept on gamely to find only a couple too good. He can return to Australia with his head held high. Cirrus Des Aigles had cover one off in midfield, straightened five deep and kept plugging away to grab a First-4 spot 100m out. Helene Super Star produced a huge run five-to-six deep to come from behind midfield near the rails after a slow break to earn a pay cheque despite racing 14 points beyond his handicap. Farraaj enjoyed a nice run one off in fifth, cornered four deep and kept on evenly. Archimedes stayed to the inside following a rail's run in midfield and ran on steadily without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (240)-THE LONGINES HONG KONG CUP - Group One - 2000Metres

HELENE SUPER STAR reared as the start was effected and then shortly after the start was crowded for room between FARRAAJ which was taken out by SAME WORLD and MILITARY ATTACK which shifted in.

This resulted in HELENE SUPER STAR losing ground.

From a wide barrier, CALIFORNIA MEMORY was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After the 1100 Metres, ENDOWING was taken wider by MILITARY ATTACK which shifted out.

Neat the 100 Metres, PLEASURE GAINS momentarily raced tight between FARRAAJ and ARCHIMEDES, both of which shifted ground marginally.

Near the 25 Metres, MILITARY ATTACK (Z Purton) shifted out and bumped DESIGNS ON ROME, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

DESIGNS ON ROME and MILITARY ATTACK then raced tight over the concluding stages.

Z Purton was reprimanded.

Throughout the race, BLAZING SPEED travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of BLAZING SPEED immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

DESIGNS ON ROME and MILITARY ATTACK were sent for sampling.
