Recap by phillip woo

Smashed in betting, Apollos Bow led, cornered two lengths on top and just had enough left in the tank to hold off the fast-finishing favourite Vital Spring for a surprise win. He had done nothing in eight previous runs but was sharper for a run last Wednesday. Vital Spring ran on strongly from behind midfield to make it close on the wire. He's always a chance at this level. Smart Thinker closed well near the inside to just get third after a midfield run on the fence. It was an improved effort for his new trainer following a downgrade. Fantastic Fabio just lost a placing late after stalking the eventual winner in the run from a wide draw. Like the winner, he appeared to benefit from a run last week. Tigerlad only held his ground after getting all favours in the box-seat. He had his chance and is limited. Chunghwa Jingshen held his ground travelling one fore of midfield. It was another positive effort after waking up with a runner-up result on closing day.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (31) - TSEUNG KWAN O HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Meters

FLYING MONKEY was withdrawn 15.9.20 on by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetence) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter FANTASTIC FABIO (K C Leung).

Before being allowed to race again, FLYING MONKEY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

THE ONE began only fairly and then was bumped on jumping by TIGERLAD which shifted out.

TIGERLAD then continued to shift out and was awkwardly placed inside the heels of CHUNGHWA JINGSHEN shortly after the start.

WINNING WARRIOR shifted out at the start and hampered SHOW MISSION.

From the outside barrier, SWEETLY BABY was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

SPICY REALLY was also steadied shortly after the start to obtain cover.

Despite being vigorously ridden for some distance in the early stages, SMART THINKER failed to muster speed.

Approaching the 900 Metres, CHUNGHWA JINGSHEN got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover behind FANTASTIC FABIO.

SPICY REALLY travelled keenly approaching and passing the 900 Metres.

Passing the 300 Metres, CHUNGHWA JINGSHEN was shifted out away from the heels of FANTASTIC FABIO.

WINNING WARRIOR consequently shifted out away from CHUNGHWA JINGSHEN and inconvenienced ROMAN ODYSSEY near the 250 Metres.

Passing the 100 Metres, SWEETLY BABY was shifted to the outside of TIGERLAD after being awkwardly placed behind that horse for a short distance.

SWEETLY BABY then had some difficulty obtaining clear running over the concluding stages.

Throughout the race, WINNING WARRIOR travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that SWEETLY BABY had sustained a small laceration to the inside of the left hind fetlock.

A veterinary inspection of THE ONE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

APOLLOS BOW and VITAL SPRING were sent for sampling.
