Recap by phillip woo

Exultant worked to the lead from beyond midfield at the 750m following a mid-race move and kept on nicely to continue his fabulous campaign with a third straight win. Southern Legend finished well travelling fourth last to grab second 150m out in a terrific first-time effort over the trip. Specked late Dinozzo closed well from last at the 600m to just edge Simply Brilliant for third. It was a huge run despite being badly handicapped in this set weights test. Plunged late Simply Brilliant may have gotten up for third if not having to go around the tiring Pakistan Star mid-straight with a move from midfield. Glorious Forever only plodded after chasing leader Time Warp. He's at his best when dictating the run. Eagle Way peaked on his run 100m out after following the move of Exultant to sit three-deep in third coming to the final bend. Pakistan Star was struggling 200m out after taking closer order in midfield from near back at the 1,200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (430) - THE CITI HONG KONG GOLD CUP - Class G1 - 2000Meters

NORTHERN SUPERSTAR shifted out on jumping and bumped SOUTHERN LEGEND which in turn shifted out and made contact with GLORIOUS FOREVER.

SINGAPORE SLING and EAGLE WAY were steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

From the outside barrier, PAKISTAN STAR was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain a position closer to the rail, however, was left racing wide and without cover passing the winning post on the first occasion and then passing the 1300 Metres was allowed to improve its position.

Passing the 1400 Metres, GLORIOUS FOREVER raced close to the heels of TIME WARP.

Near the 1350 Metres, EXULTANT got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SOUTHERN LEGEND.

After this, EXULTANT continued to prove difficult to settle and got its head up for some distance when continuing to race close to the heels of SOUTHERN LEGEND.

Then passing the 1100 Metres, EXULTANT, which was continuing to travel keenly, shifted out away from the heels of SOUTHERN LEGEND.

EXULTANT was then allowed to improve its position to race in the lead after the 800 Metres.

When EXULTANT shifted out, EAGLE WAY improved its position with EXULTANT, however, was left racing wide and without cover after the 900 Metres.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, SINGAPORE SLING momentarily raced in restricted room between EAGLE WAY which shifted in and DINOZZO which shifted out away from the heels of GOLD MOUNT.

Passing the 700 Metres, PAKISTAN STAR and NORTHERN SUPERSTAR (K Teetan) raced tight as NORTHERN SUPERSTAR attempted to improve into tight running between PAKISTAN STAR and SIMPLY BRILLIANT.

In this incident, PAKISTAN STAR became unbalanced when bumped by NORTHERN SUPERSTAR.

Then approaching the 600 Metres, NORTHERN SUPERSTAR was steadied when unable to improve between PAKISTAN STAR and SIMPLY BRILLIANT.

When NORTHERN SUPERSTAR was steadied, SOUTHERN LEGEND shifted out away from the heels of that horse, resulting in SINGAPORE SLING being taken wider.

K Teetan was severely reprimanded for attempting to force a run where there was insufficient room.

Near the 350 Metres, DINOZZO was directed to the inside of SIMPLY BRILLIANT which shifted out to obtain clear running.

DINOZZO then had some difficulty obtaining clear running approaching and passing the 200 Metres and after obtaining a run between EAGLE WAY and GLORIOUS FOREVER momentarily raced in restricted room between those horses as GLORIOUS FOREVER shifted out marginally.

Passing the 200 Metres, SIMPLY BRILLIANT was shifted to the outside of PAKISTAN STAR after being disappointed for running inside that horse.

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

EXULTANT and SOUTHERN LEGEND were sent for sampling.
