Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Solar Hei Hei was caught three deep punching the breeze until muscling his way into one-out, one-back spot 600m out, advanced to the front three deep at the 250m and kept on gamely for a second straight win. Jun Gong was badly held up until popping into the open six deep at the 180m following a rail's run worse than midfield and finished willingly thereafter to make it close. He should have won. Jolly Spring ran on well four deep to snatch third by a whisker following a midfield run with cover. Joyeux enjoyed the gun run behind the leader My Legend, shifted outside a tiring Sea Warrior at the 250m and plugged away thereafter to just miss a placing. How Speedy was ridden for luck second from the rear from a wide gate, switched off heels with three wider out at the 300m and finished well to just miss a placing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (744)-THE GUANGDONG-HONG KONG CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

DYNAMIC VOYAGE was withdrawn on 30.6.15 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter HOW SPEEDY (D Lane).

PEARL WARM WARM was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (sore right fore fetlock).

Before being allowed to race again, DYNAMIC VOYAGE and PEARL WARM WARM will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

On arrival at the Start, SEA WARRIOR was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said that it was suitable to race.

WORLD CITY, which was fractious in the barriers, was slow to begin.

Before being allowed to race again, WORLD CITY will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

SOLAR HEI HEI shifted in at the start and bumped JOLLY SPRING which became unbalanced.

From the outside barrier, THUNDER DASH was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, JOLLY SPRING momentarily raced in restricted room between JUN GONG and SOLAR HEI HEI which shifted in.

Passing the 1100 Metres, JOYEUX momentarily raced tight between MY LEGEND and SEA WARRIOR which shifted in before being directed out to relieve the tightening.

WORLD CITY proved difficult to settle after the 1000 Metres.

Passing the 750 Metres, LONDON MASTER shifted out away from the heels of SPURS ON when travelling keenly.

JOYEUX had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Approaching the 200 Metres, HOW SPEEDY raced tight between SPURS ON and LONDON MASTER.

JUN GONG (D Whyte) was badly held up for clear running until passing the 200 Metres at which stage the horse shifted out, resulting in WORLD CITY being hampered when having to be steadied away from the heels of JUN GONG.

D Whyte was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

For the majority of the race, SPURS ON travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, N Callan stated that WORLD CITY made an abnormal breathing noise throughout the race.

WORLD CITY had previously been reported as being a "roarer".

A veterinary inspection of LONDON MASTER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SOLAR HEI HEI and JUN GONG were sent for sampling.
