Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Longwah Supreme was nicely rated ahead of midfield and three deep, rounded the final bend six wide and quickened brilliantly at the 100m to win going away 20m out to remain unbeaten in three outings. He's a serious galloper and remains one to follow. King Mossman pinged straight to the front from gate nine, straightened a length on top, tended to lug out in the final 100m and went down fighting. Captain Sweet made his run third from the rear and two deep after breaking from the widest gate, rounded the final bend five wide, switched inside for a clear run at the 150m and finished full of run, before peaking 50m out off a big weight. He'll come on for this run and will be hard to oppose next time out. Gift Is Gift sat three deep outside the leaders, straightened four deep and stayed on gamely off a light weight, despite a step up in grade. Bullish Champion was parked three deep near the speed, straightened five wide and kept on well to finish just outside the placings in a very encouraging debut performance. Perfect Gear got going without threatening, while Pretty One kept on evenly. Firming late, Eagle Regiment was allowed to go to the line under his own steam after looking awkward passing the 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (082) - THE CHINESE RECREATION CLUB CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 2 - 1200 Meters SIR EAGLES was withdrawn on 8.10.11 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right front foot) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter LUCKY BRAVO (Apprentice M L Yeung).

Before being allowed to race again, SIR EAGLES will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

CLEARLY SILVER and GIFT IS GIFT were slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, CAPTAIN SWEET was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After the 1000 Metres, GOLDEN BAUHINIA raced tight inside EAGLE REGIMENT which, after itself initially racing tight inside BULLISH CHAMPION, got its head on the side and shifted in away from that horse.

A short distance later, GOLDEN BAUHINIA (C W Wong) shifted in slightly, resulting in PRETTY ONE being taken across the running of LUCKY BRAVO, causing LUCKY BRAVO to be checked and PRETTY ONE to be hampered and lose ground.

In this incident, CLEARLY SILVER was steadied away from the heels of PRETTY ONE.

C W Wong was reprimanded and advised that, whilst GOLDEN BAUHINIA had initially been pressured by EAGLE REGIMENT, he should have attempted to shift out to relieve the tightening to PRETTY ONE and LUCKY BRAVO when the opportunity existed.

Near the 850 Metres, GOLDEN BAUHINIA was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FIRST IN COMMAND.

Near the 300 Metres, LUCKY BRAVO was checked when momentarily crowded for room between EAGLE REGIMENT and CAPTAIN SWEET which, when taking a narrow run between LUCKY BRAVO and PRETTY ONE, shifted in and away from PRETTY ONE after that horse initially shifted in of its own accord.

No further action was taken.

Passing the 300 Metres, BRIGHTEXPECTATIONS got its head on the side, shifted in and hampered CLEARLY SILVER.

KING MOSSMAN got its head on the side and hung out over the final 200 Metres.

In the Straight, GIFT IS GIFT got its head on the side and hung in.

Throughout the race, BULLISH CHAMPION and BRIGHTEXPECTATIONS travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding his riding of PERFECT GEAR in the Straight, C K Tong stated that he commenced to ride PERFECT GEAR vigorously hands and heels passing the 500 Metres and shifted the horse to the outside of runners.

He said PERFECT GEAR responded well to his riding, he hit the horse in the backhand manner passing the 250 Metres, however, as PERFECT GEAR was continuing to close off the race strongly, he did not continue to hit the horse with the whip, rather he rode it out vigorously hands and heels to the end of the race.

C K Tong was severely reprimanded and advised that his riding of PERFECT GEAR in the Straight had come under notice and that in future he should ride his mounts in such a manner so as to leave no room for query.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of EAGLE REGIMENT, B Prebble stated that his mount appeared to him to resent racing in restricted room between BULLISH CHAMPION and GOLDEN BAUHINIA after the 1000 Metres.

He said after this EAGLE REGIMENT became unbalanced in its action and did not travel comfortably.

He said prior to the Home Turn EAGLE REGIMENT came under pressure and did not feel to him to be stretching out as he thought it should.

He added that near the 300 Metres EAGLE REGIMENT became further unbalanced in its action when LUCKY BRAVO was taken across the heels of EAGLE REGIMENT and after this EAGLE REGIMENT continued to give ground noticeably.

He said although EAGLE REGIMENT was attempting 1200 Metres for the first time today, the distance of todays race was not an issue.

He added that whilst EAGLE REGIMENT had been found to have lost its left front plate, he believed this occurred after the finish and was not relevant to the horses disappointing performance.

A veterinary inspection of EAGLE REGIMENT after the race did not show any significant findings.

LONGWAH SUPREME and KING MOSSMAN were sent for sampling.
