Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite, Igniting led and never looked back for a comfortable win after knocking on the door in his opening three runs at both tracks. He relished a return to the Valley. Loving A Boom ran on well to overhaul Beauty Kobe late for second after threedeep run with cover behind midfield. He's as honest as the day is long but has trouble winning. It was an improved run by Beauty Kobe following a pace-stalking run in his Valley debut here. Wind N Grass ran on steadily to just miss a placing after a one-off run in midfield. He just wasn't good enough. Baby held his ground after a box-seat run. The extra six pounds took its toll following a last-start win. Falcon Turbo made ground late travelling fourth last after missing the kick. He can bob up at any moment. Kinda Cool came up one-paced after deep run fore of midfield without cover. Had got no favours from gate eight after back-to-back wins following sweet runs. Punted late, Here Comes Ted came up one-paced after making his run four back along the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (363) - SHEUNG HEI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

FALCON TURBO was very slow to begin.

Before being allowed to race again, FALCON TURBO will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

HERE COMES TED began only fairly.

From wide barriers, SNAP FIT and TAKE WHAT YOU NEED were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

SMOOTHIES travelled wide and without cover throughout the race and in the Straight gave ground.

After the race, J Moreira stated that KINDA COOL travelled three wide and without cover throughout the race and came under heavy pressure prior to the Home Turn to hold its position.

He said the horse's disappointing performance, in his view, could be attributed to the hard run that it endured which resulted in KINDA COOL weakening in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of KINDA COOL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of KINDA COOL, a winner of its last two starts, was considered unacceptable.

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

When questioned regarding his riding of LOVING A BOOM in the early part of the Straight, C Soumillon stated that he was instructed to ride the horse patiently and to save its finishing run for as long as possible.

He said having previously ridden the horse, he feels as though LOVING A BOOM does not possess a long finishing run, therefore he allowed the horse to improve to the outside of KINDA COOL upon straightening and to make ground of its own accord before placing it under full pressure at the 200 Metres.

C Soumillon was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must ensure that he places his mount under pressure at the appropriate stage of the race.

A veterinary inspection of SNAP FIT and HERE COMES TED immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

IGNITING and LOVING A BOOM were sent for sampling.
