Recap by phillip woo

In a thrilling finish, favourite Dancing Fighter defied a deep run better than midfield to get the head down on the wire for the win after threatening with seconds in his past three starts. Yoo Yoo King did everything right but get the win after hitting the front near the 100m following a prominent run on the fence carrying top weight. Ballistic King ran on nicely to make it close on the wire settling effectively one-out, one-back. Punted late My Darling was swamped late after emerging with the lead 800m out. Sensationallybacked Namjong Sings wouldn't go away without a fight after working hard without cover on the speed. He's caught the eye. Buoyant Boy finished in the mix after a midfield run on the fence. He rarely produces a bad run over this Valley trip. Nordic Warrior left things too late but made up heaps of ground after settling last from a wide gate. First Responder came up flat travelling one off in midfield. This was a bit too rich.

3 November 2019 Sha Tin Racemeeting a.

Race 3 (143) The Stewards tonight questioned J Moreira, the rider of MAJESTIC CONQUEROR, regarding the disappointing performance of that horse.

J Moreira stated that he had to make some use of the horse in the early stages to clear runners to his inside and it was not until approaching the 700 Metres that he was able to shift MAJESTIC CONQUEROR across to race on the rail in the lead.

He said during this time MAJESTIC CONQUEROR made a number of abnormal breathing noises.

He said after reaching the lead he attempted to steady the tempo on MAJESTIC CONQUEROR given that he had had to do some work in the early stages.

He added MAJESTIC CONQUEROR continued to make a number of abnormal breathing noises and then came under pressure after the 400 Metres.

He said FRESH POWER was able to improve forward of MAJESTIC CONQUEROR passing the 300 Metres after which MAJESTIC CONQUEROR came under heavy pressure and, despite being ridden out, gave ground noticeably over the concluding stages.

The performance of MAJESTIC CONQUEROR, favourite for this race, was considered unacceptable.

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