Recap by phillip woo

In a thrilling finish, old warhorse Blazing Speed showed plenty of tenacity after hitting the front 150m out following a prominent run to prevail by a head bob for an eight career win and second in this race. Punted late, Victory Magic finished willingly three from the right after travelling one off the fence in midfield to make it close on the wire. He was suited by the lightning fast strip. Raging favourite Werther came up just short following a box-seat run. He lost nothing in defeat but may prefer a ground with a bit more give. Designs On Rome was getting going 650m out after travelling second from the rear but didn't quite get the trip. Helene Happy Star set an even pace, cornered a length on top and found a few too good in the run to the wire. Ambitious Champion wasn't good enough following a pace-stalking run. Military Attack was put to sleep at the rear of the field but failed to let down when push came to shove. He didn't get the trip. Giovanni Canaletto had his chance following a rail's run in midfield in another disappointing run despite a suitable trip and switch in stables.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (664)-THE STANDARD CHARTERED CHAMPIONS & CHATER CUP - Group One - 2400Metres

From the outside barrier, MILITARY ATTACK was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 200 Metres, the whip of J Moreira (DESIGNS ON ROME) was knocked from his grasp by the whip of Z Purton (VICTORY MAGIC).

N Rawiller stated that in the early stages MILITARY ATTACK was reluctant to stretch out and became detached from the main body of the field.

He said he had hoped that the tempo may steady up in the middle stages which would provide the opportunity for MILITARY ATTACK to improve its position, however, it was not until after the 500 Metres that the horse was able to commence to improve.

He added after being placed under pressure in the early part of the Straight, MILITARY ATTACK again felt reluctant to stretch out and as the horse did not feel comfortable in its action, he rode it out only hands and heels over the concluding stages.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that MILITARY ATTACK was lame in its left front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, MILITARY ATTACK will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

WERTHER, BLAZING SPEED and VICTORY MAGIC were sent for sampling.
