Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Western Express came with a well-timed move to get the bob down for the win after settling midfield on the fence following a slow break to up his record to four wins from six starts over the 1,400m. Plunged late Wah May Friend lived up to an upset win two back over the Valley 1,200m when nearly going pillar-to-post carrying a feather weight. He's returned on the top of his game and might get away with another this season. Racing Supernova finished well down the outside after travelling third from the rear to fill a placing. Limitless kept on all right following a one-out, one-back run. He's a quirky horse with ability and will come on for this run. Exultant ran on well after trailing the field for the most part in an encouraging debut. He's carrying out for a further trip. Market drifter Booming Delight never fired after a deep run without cover in midfield. He had excuses and is better suited over the 1,600m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (187) - THE PANASONIC CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 1 - 1400Meters

WESTERN EXPRESS and SIMPLY INVINCIBLE began only fairly.

After this, SIMPLY INVINCIBLE was shifted across behind runners.

RACING SUPERNOVA was awkwardly placed inside the heels of NEW ASIA SUNRISE shortly after the start.

LIMITLESS got its head up and proved difficult to settle when being steadied to obtain cover approaching and passing the 1100 Metres.

Making the turn after the 900 Metres, EXULTANT improved to be racing between SIMPLY INVINCIBLE and RACING SUPERNOVA where there was insufficient room which resulted in EXULTANT having to be checked and losing ground.

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

After the race, K C Leung (SIMPLY INVINCIBLE) reported that his mount appeared reluctant to stretch out in the Straight.

When questioned, S Clipperton stated that it had been hoped that BOOMING DELIGHT would be able to obtain a position in about midfield if possible.

He said in the early stages he rode his mount positively in an endeavour to cross RACING SUPERNOVA and obtain a position one horse off the rail.

He said however that he was unable to do so due to RACING SUPERNOVA maintaining its position to his inside one horse off the rail.

He said he therefore steadied BOOMING DELIGHT in an endeavour to obtain cover behind RACING SUPERNOVA, however, EXULTANT was able to obtain that position and for this reason he was left racing in a three wide position and without cover after the 900 Metres.

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

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

WESTERN EXPRESS and WAH MAY FRIEND were sent for sampling.
