Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Conte was too good after hitting the front 200m out following a oneoff run fore of midfield to up his credentials to seven wins from nine starts. Morethanlucky stayed on gamely for second following a prominent run. He was a little out of the handicaps but relished the light weight. Rattan closed off reasonably well to fill a placing following a one-off run in midfield. What Else But You finished well following a patient ride second from the rear to fill a Quartet spot. It was a solid effort but the mile might suit him a shade better. Winner's Way ran on steadily from behind midfield to finish a nonthreatening fifth. It was another honest effort but the big weight was too much to overcome. Taking Aim wasn't too far away in the end after leading from an awkward gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (309) - THE CHINESE CLUB CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class G3 - 1400Meters

BEAUTY ONLY was slow to begin.

NOTHINGILIKEMORE shifted out at the start and hampered BORN IN CHINA.

Shortly after the start, ROMANTIC TOUCH was steadied away from the heels of NOTHINGILIKEMORE which was taken in by RATTAN (C Schofield).

C Schofield was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

When NOTHINGILIKEMORE was shifted out to relieve the tightening to ROMANTIC TOUCH, BORN IN CHINA was steadied away from the heels of that horse.

WHAT ELSE BUT YOU was steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Near the 1000 Metres, CONTE was hampered when crowded for room inside MORETHANLUCKY (A Badel) which shifted in.

A Badel was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is properly clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

As CONTE was steadied to allow MORETHANLUCKY to cross, RATTAN and NOTHINGILIKEMORE (S de Sousa), which were following, were hampered in consequence and WINNER'S WAY, which was racing behind RATTAN, got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of that horse.

After the race, S de Sousa reported that after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of CONTE, his mount was left racing three wide and without cover and immediately came off the bridle.

He said NOTHINGILIKEMORE did not travel well for the remainder of the race and gave ground noticeably over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of NOTHINGILIKEMORE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

The performance of NOTHINGILIKEMORE, which finished at the tail of the field, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, NOTHINGILIKEMORE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Near the 600 Metres, NOTHINGILIKEMORE raced tight outside RATTAN which shifted out marginally.

WINNER'S WAY had difficulty obtaining clear running until near the 150 Metres at which time the horse was shifted to the outside of PINGWU SPARK.

A veterinary inspection of BEAUTY ONLY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

CONTE and MORETHANLUCKY were sent for sampling.
