Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Classic Beauty just held on for the win after moving to the front 300m out tracking the leader Jolly Gene from a wide gate. It was a deserving win after placing threes times over this trip from his past four starts. I Do made it close on the wire after getting a lovely run in the box-seat despite a wide gate. He's clearly got the tools to get away with a race in this grade. Glorious Dragon came on nicely settling beyond midfield and one off the fence to finish two necks away in third. He's building towards a win with placings in his past two of five starts. Marzouq kept on all right following a handy run. He can bob up now and then. Well-backed Ho Ho Feel was making good headway late after a patient ride fourth from the back. It was an honest effort after a last-start win in Class Four but he tends to find it hard winning in this grade. General Sherman had his chance saving ground behind midfield. He's capable of big runs but isn't reliable.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (777) - SPORTSMANSHIP 2000M HANDICAP - Class 3 - 2000Meters

MARZOUQ was crowded for room on jumping between CHAMPION SUPREME and DRAGON COMMANDER, both of which shifted ground.

In this incident, all three horses became unbalanced.

NEW ELEGANCE stood flat-footed as the start was effected and then on leaving the barrier stalls became unbalanced.

This resulted in NEW ELEGANCE losing a considerable amount of ground.

Before being allowed to race again, NEW ELEGANCE will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial.

From a wide barrier, OWNERS' STAR was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the turn after the winning post on the first occasion, GLORIOUS DRAGON and CHAMPION SUPREME were crowded for room inside MARZOUQ which was racing tight inside GRAND CHANCELLOR as that horse was steadied to avoid the heels of I DO (K C Leung) which shifted in when not quite clear.

After being crossed by I DO, GRAND CHANCELLOR then raced tight inside CLASSIC BEAUTY which shifted in to take up the room which had previously been made available by GRAND CHANCELLOR being taken in by I DO.

This resulted in MARZOUQ being taken in further and causing both CHAMPION SUPREME and GLORIOUS DRAGON to be checked when crowded for room.

In the circumstances, K C Leung was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is properly clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Passing the 1700 Metres, GENERAL SHERMAN got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of CHAMPION SUPREME.

After the 1700 Metres, GRAND CHANCELLOR proved very difficult to settle and got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover behind ROCKETEER.

Passing the 1200 Metres, GLORIOUS DRAGON was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CHAMPION SUPREME.

After this, GLORIOUS DRAGON travelled keenly and near the 900 Metres was again steadied away from the heels of CHAMPION SUPREME.

Passing the 400 Metres, GRAND CHANCELLOR shifted in and raced tight outside CHAMPION SUPREME.

CHAMPION SUPREME and GRAND CHANCELLOR then raced tight for some distance approaching and passing the 200 Metres.

LOBO'S LEGEND had some difficulty obtaining clear running from passing the 300 Metres until approaching the 200 Metres.

After the 300 Metres, NEW ELEGANCE was steadied and shifted to the outside of GENERAL SHERMAN after being disappointed for running between that horse and HO HO FEEL.

Passing the 200 Metres, ROCKETEER, which was giving ground, momentarily raced in restricted room between CHAMPION SUPREME and LOBO'S LEGEND which was racing tight outside DRAGON COMMANDER.

In the Straight, GLORIOUS DRAGON lay in under pressure, resulting in its rider having to change his whip over into his right hand after the 300 Metres.

GLORIOUS DRAGON continued to lay in under pressure and was corrected by its rider near the 150 Metres.

GLORIOUS DRAGON again lay in under pressure over the concluding stages.

Throughout the race, GRAND CHANCELLOR travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, M F Poon stated that the crossed nose band applied to HO HO FEEL came loose shortly after the start.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of CHAMPION SUPREME, C Y Ho stated that after being crowded for room in the early stages, his mount travelled well in the middle stages, however, came under pressure after the 600 Metres.

He said he had noted that in a number of its previous races CHAMPION SUPREME had quickened well, however, today the horse stayed on only fairly in the early part of the Straight before finishing off the race one-paced.

A veterinary inspection of CHAMPION SUPREME immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of GRAND CHANCELLOR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

CLASSIC BEAUTY and I DO were sent for sampling.
