Recap by phillip woo

Japan's Admire Mars dashed strongly to take control 100m out after making his run one off in midfield. He's a rising star in Japan and was over the odds despite money coming for him late. Waikuku closed very well from the rear of the field to finish a good second. He's likely taken over the mantel from Beauty Generation as the top miler. Early favourite Beauty Generation was again on his tippy toes 100m out after hitting the front from Ka Ying Star 300m out following a pace-stalking run. It was still a huge run but it was below the high standards he's set in the past. Another Japan representative Normcore closed well after a deep run in midfield. Citron Spirit made up heaps of ground late after biding his time second from the back. He doesn't know how to produce a bad run. Post-time favourite, Japan's top miler Indy Champ was badly held up from the 400m to 100m after making his run midfield on the fence following a tardy break.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (233) - THE LONGINES HONG KONG MILE - Class G1 - 1600Meters

PERSIAN KNIGHT was slow to begin.

ZAAKI and INDY CHAMP, which both began only fairly, bumped at the start.

From wide barriers, CITRON SPIRIT and WAIKUKU were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

When joining up with the course proper near the 1500 Metres, KA YING STAR got its head on the side and shifted out.

INDY CHAMP was badly held up for clear running from on straightening until approaching the 200 Metres at which stage the horse was shifted to the inside of ZAAKI.

PERSIAN KNIGHT had difficulty obtaining clear running from on straightening until approaching the 300 Metres.

Throughout the race, SIMPLY BRILLIANT travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of KA YING STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BEAUTY GENERATION, ADMIRE MARS and WAIKUKU were sent for sampling.
