Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Apollo's Choice enjoyed an uninterrupted run this term to come from midfield on the fence to take control 200m out for an easy win. He's racing well and can't be written off carrying a lighter weight in a higher grade. Royal Mojito finished nicely after travelling behind midfield to just get second 100m out. The return to Sha Tin and claimer's allowance worked well and he'll be breaking through shortly. Energetic Class closed off all right after travelling one-off fore of midfield to blouse outsider God Of Dragon for a placing. If he doesn't win shortly at this level he will be in Class Four. God Of Dragon closed well from the second half of the field to just miss a placing at huge odds at his fourth local run following a rise in trip. He's naturally coming around. Merrygowin was getting going late near the inside after a patient ride at the tail of the field from a wide gate. He keeps promising but has trouble delivering at this level.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (416) - TAI PING SHAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Meters

ROYAL MOJITO was slow to begin.

From the outside barriers, RAGING BLITZKRIEG and MERRYGOWIN were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

GOD OF DRAGON was also steadied on jumping to obtain cover.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, DARING FIT was slow to muster speed, subsequently travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

GO GO WIN lost its left hind plate after the 800 Metres.

For some distance approaching and passing the 500 Metres, ENERGETIC CLASS was awkwardly placed behind GO GO WIN.

ENERGETIC CLASS was then held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 150 Metres was bumped by GOD OF DRAGON which shifted out.

RAGING BLITZKRIEG was unable to obtain clear running until passing the 300 Metres.

Passing the 300 Metres, MERRYGOWIN momentarily raced tight inside GOD OF DRAGON which shifted in when racing tight inside ENERGETIC CLASS.

When questioned, N Rawiller stated that DYNAMIC EAGLE, which was only having its second race start in Hong Kong today, made the Home Turn awkwardly when ROYAL MOJITO, which was racing to its inside, shifted out to obtain clear running.

He said he ensured that DYNAMIC EAGLE was properly balanced in the early part of the Straight whilst slapping the horse down the shoulder with the whip in the right hand.

He said he commenced using the whip on the horse near the 250 Metres and DYNAMIC EAGLE closed off the race well.

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

APOLLO'S CHOICE and ROYAL MOJITO were sent for sampling.
