Recap by phillip woo

A drop in grade and step up in distance brought out the best in Cloud Nine who fought on well to assert his authority 50m out after tracking the speed in second for a first win at his 13th start. He'll likely need all favours in the run to figure up in grade over 2,000m or further. Autumn Gold closed off well after travelling one off the fence beyond midfield to run down Winaswewish in the final few metres stretch for second. He's not reliable but is well-rated on a past win and can pop up at any time. Winaswewish found a couple too good in the end after poking his head in front approaching the 200m following a prominent run. He's racing honest but doesn't have many points in hand. Blazing Pass went by beaten rivals after travelling third from the rear. He's better at a mile. Favourite King Bountiful never lifted following a rails run in midfield. He appears from his past two to be on his mark. Towering Storm was pulled up 600m out after travelling at the rear of the field.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (260)-CHEUNG SHA WAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 2200Metres

NEWSWIRE FREE began awkwardly and then shortly after the start was bumped by CLOUD NINE which shifted out.

BLAZING PASS shifted out on jumping and bumped PEARL FURU which became unbalanced.

From the outside barriers, TOWERING STORM, GO SANDY GO and AUTUMN GOLD were all steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Near the 900 Metres, TOWERING STORM (O Murphy) shifted out and bumped GO SANDY GO.

O Murphy reported that after this contact, TOWERING STORM's action shortened noticeably and as he felt that the horse appeared to be sore in front, he elected to ease it out of the race approaching the 800 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of TOWERING STORM immediately following the race found that horse to be lame in its left front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, TOWERING STORM will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of PEARL FURU and CHOICE EXCHEQUER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

KING BOUNTIFUL, CLOUD NINE and AUTUMN GOLD were sent for sampling.
