Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Romantic Warrior took control near the 200m after slotting one off with cover in fourth from the widest draw 1,650m out for an eighth win from nine starts. They'll have to be very good to beat him in next month's HK Cup. Tourbillon Diamond found one too good after getting all favours in the box seat to cap a stable quinella. He's as honest as the day is long. Senor Toba just got up to edge Ka Ying Star for third after a rails run in midfield. He's crying out for 2,400m. Ka Ying Star grudgingly gave way after a pace-stalking run. It was a better effort after costing himself after a slow start last time out. Money Catcher weakened over the last 100m dictating genuine fractions from gate two. It wasn't a bad run despite being badly handicapped. Panfield ran on without menacing from near the rear. He's not easy to get right on his day. Beauty Joy was never a factor after failing to settle travelling one-off in midfield. He'll need to take a chill pill if he wants to take the next step higher. Russian Emperor and Savvy Nine never got into the act from the back of the field.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (185) - THE BOCHK JOCKEY CLUB CUP - Class G2 - 2000Meters

SENOR TOBA shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of BEAUTY JOY which became unbalanced when crowded for room inside KA YING STAR.

TOURBILLON DIAMOND bumped the inside of its gate on jumping and began awkwardly.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, PANFIELD was awkwardly placed close to the heels of RUSSIAN EMPEROR when being steadied to obtain cover.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, SENOR TOBA raced tight inside the heels of SAVVY NINE.

Near the 850 Metres, SAVVY NINE was awkwardly placed behind BEAUTY JOY.

After the race, Z Purton reported that after being crossed by ROMANTIC WARRIOR near the 1600 Metres, BEAUTY JOY got its head up repeatedly in the middle stages when racing ungenerously.

He said although BEAUTY JOY did not settle in today's race, it had performed similarly in the past and been able to finish off stronger than it did today.

He said he therefore formed the view that BEAUTY JOY may not have run out the distance of today's race and may be better suited back in trip.

A veterinary inspection of BEAUTY JOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Also after the race, B Shinn was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of RUSSIAN EMPEROR.

He said although RUSSIAN EMPEROR had previously won on a track rated "Good?? the only reason he could find for the disappointing performance was that the horse may not have handled the "Good to Firm??racing surface today.

A veterinary inspection of RUSSIAN EMPEROR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
