Recap by phillip woo

In a sterling performance, favourite Maurice came with an electrifying move near the inside after settling second from the rear following a slow break to win going away 200m out. He's unbeaten in three Hong Kong starts and is clearly a superstar. Secret Weapon came on strongly after switching out for a clear run approaching the 200m following a rails run behind midfield to snatch second close to home in a terrific performance. In his past two starts, he has assumed the mantle as the top 2,000m performer in Hong Kong. Staphanos was nicely positioned in third behind the runaway leader A Shin Hikari and stayed on well to get the nose in for third over country mate Lovely Day who was prominent in the run along the fence. Ageing Blazing Speed didn't have any excuses following a one-off run with cover in midfield. A Shin Hikari spread the field out nearly 20 lengths from top to bottom while opening up by six lengths at one point but had little left in the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (257)-THE LONGINES HONG KONG CUP - Group One - 2000Metres

When commencing to be saddled up outside the Parade Ring, A SHIN HIKARI got loose from its handlers and then trotted unattended for a short period.

After being recaptured, A SHIN HIKARI was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

On arrival at the Start, Z Purton informed the Veterinary Officer that SECRET WEAPON had made a number of unusual noises whilst proceeding to the Start.

Accordingly, the girth and tongue tie carried by SECRET WEAPON were loosened.

SECRET WEAPON was then trotted up in front of the Veterinary Officer who advised that Z Purton was completely comfortable with the action of the horse and that it had not made any further abnormal noises.

Accordingly, SECRET WEAPON was passed suitable to race.

As the start was effected, MAURICE bounded in the air and became unbalanced, resulting in MAURICE losing ground.

DESIGNS ON ROME was slow to begin.

From a wide barrier, QUEENS RING got its head up on a number of occasions when being steadied in order to be shifted across behind runners.

Approaching the 1400 Metres, LOVELY DAY shifted in and brushed the running rail.

Passing the 1200 Metres, MAURICE was bumped by GUN PIT which shifted in after being brushed by QUEENS RING.

SECRET WEAPON was unable to obtain clear running from passing the 400 Metres until near the 250 Metres.

Passing the 200 Metres, HORSE OF FORTUNE and BLAZING SPEED bumped on two occasions, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

Passing the 50 Metres, HORSE OF FORTUNE raced tight inside BLAZING SPEED.

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

MAURICE and SECRET WEAPON were sent for sampling.
