Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Windicator Power was nicely rated fourth and one off the fence behind the slick pace of Loads of Joy, circled the final bend five wide, darted to the front 250m out and kicked clear for an easy win. Shahjee rushed forward to settle second in the runner-up spot at the 600m, rallied five wide upon straightening, put up a brief battle at the 200m, before plugging on one-paced over the final 100m for second. Topping Light jumped alertly before assuming the sit at the 1,000m, straightened near the inside and kept on gamely for a placing. Union's Star made his run behind midfield and two deep, circled the final bend with two wider out and finished up nicely to fill the frame in fourth. Team Work saved ground along the fence and kept up a steady gallop without threatening. Make It made his run second from the rear and only passed beaten runners late. Punted late, Flora Danica made his run in midfield and two deep with cover, swung the final bend five wide and kept on one-paced. Euro Power made his run behind midfield after breaking slowly and found nothing soon after straightening in a surprisingly disappointing run. Loads of Joy faltered badly after setting a brisk pace.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (036) - CYPRESS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters EURO POWER, which was fractious in the barriers, was slow to begin.

B Prebble (UNION'S STAR) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1000 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of EURO POWER, causing that horse to be hampered and taken in across the rightful running of REGENCY WINNER which as a result lost its running to which it was rightfully entitled and was checked and in turn was taken in onto MAKE IT which became unbalanced when crowded for room.

B Prebble was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Sunday, 2 October 2011 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 25 September 2011.

In the early stages, SHAHJEE travelled wide and without cover and after the 800 Metres was allowed to stride forward into a position outside the lead.

Approaching the 800 Metres, FLORA DANICA proved difficult to settle and was steadied away from the heels of WINDICATOR POWER which shifted out slightly.

Rounding the Home Turn, STAR OF FAME was checked away from the heels of TEAM WORK.

EURO POWER, which was following, was checked in consequence, shifted in and made contact with the running rail.

Shortly after entering into the Straight, TOPPING LIGHT was shifted in away from the heels of LOADS OF JOY.

Over the concluding stages, TEAM WORK was awkwardly placed close to the heels of TOPPING LIGHT which shifted in.

Because of this, TEAM WORK was not ridden out right to the end of the race.

A veterinary inspection of EURO POWER after the race did not show any significant findings.

WINDICATOR POWER and SHAHJEE were sent for sampling.
