Recap by phillip woo

In a thrilling finish, top-rated Sun Jewellery was handy in the run along the fence, rallied five deep upon straightening, shifted inside for a clear run at the 300m, poked his head in front 60m out and kept battling away to just notch a sixth win from seven starts despite a rise in trip. Favourite Werther settled one off the fence beyond midfield, swung the final bend with two wider out and stayed on dourly to make it tight on the wire. He'll be looking forward to the extra 200m in next month's Derby. Blizzardfound the front 250m out after travelling without cover fore of midfield and just went down in a nail-biter. It was a huge run in defeat. Eastern Express settled a distant second behind Green Dispatch, assumed the front 350m out and kept up a strong gallop to finish level for third in a terrific run despite being badly out-handicapped. Giovanni Canaletto was ridden for luck at the rear of the field, straightened five deep and finished well despite drifting out under pressure to finish a respectable fifth. He's crying out for a longer trip. Friends Of Ka Ying made some ground near the inside without menacing after settling second from the rear. McQueen came up flat over the final 200m following a box-seat run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (422)-THE HONG KONG CLASSIC CUP - Hong Kong Group One - 1800Metres

SUN JEWELLERY shifted out at the start and bumped MCQUEEN.

WHITE MAGIC was bumped on jumping when crowded for room between MCQUEEN and WERTHER which was taken in by CALIFORNIA DISEGNO (N Callan).

WHITE MAGIC continued to race tight between MCQUEEN and WERTHER which raced tight inside CALIFORNIA DISEGNO.

In this incident, WHITE MAGIC was checked and MCQUEEN became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by WERTHER.

N Callan was advised that in similar circumstances he would be expected to make more endeavour than he did on this occasion to ensure that runners to his inside have comfortable racing room.

MCQUEEN lost its left hind plate near the 1400 Metres.

Near the 1300 Metres, CONSORT (C Soumillon) commenced to prove very difficult to manage and was severely checked after shifting out across the heels of WERTHER (H Bowman) which shifted in.

When CONSORT was checked, WHITE MAGIC was hampered in consequence.

After this, CONSORT continued to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed close to the heels of WERTHER.

After viewing the videos and taking into consideration C Soumillon's evidence regarding the racing manners of CONSORT at this time, the Stewards accepted that CONSORT's racing manners had contributed significantly to this incident, nonetheless H Bowman was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room for runners to his inside.

Passing the 1300 Metres, THE MONARCH got its head up when being steadied to avoid the heels of SUN JEWELLERY which shifted in marginally.

Rounding the Home Turn, CALIFORNIA DISEGNO was checked when crowded for room between WERTHER which was racing tight to its outside whilst maintaining its line and SUN JEWELLERY (R Moore) which attempted to shift to the outside of BLIZZARD which shifted out.

SUN JEWELLERY was then shifted back in to relieve the tightening to CALIFORNIA DISEGNO.

R Moore was advised that whilst BLIZZARD had rolled out in advance of his mount rounding the Home Turn, by attempting to place SUN JEWELLERY to the outside of BLIZZARD, this resulted in CALIFORNIA DISEGNO being crowded for room.

R Moore was advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

For the majority of the race, WHITE MAGIC travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, Mr T P Yung, the trainer of FRIENDS OF KA YING, said the horse was stepping up significantly in distance to the 1800 Metres today.

He said from a wide barrier he felt that were the horse to be ridden to obtain a forward position, it was most likely that it would be required to race without cover and he believed that over the 1800 Metres FRIENDS OF KA YING's chances would be best aided by being able to race with cover.

He said for this reason although he did not believed the race would be run at a good tempo, he felt that it was best for FRIENDS OF KA YING to be shifted across behind runners to ensure that it was able to race with cover.

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

SUN JEWELLERY and WERTHER were sent for sampling.
