Recap by phillip woo

Yuan's Fortune saved ground along the rails in sixth, stuck to the inside upon straightening, worked to a narrow lead at the 100m and just held off the surge of Snitzel Kid by the bob of heads for the win. Snitzel Kid enjoyed the box-seat run, peeled four wide upon straightening and eventually got going to come up a stride short with an ideal step up to the mile. He's ready to win. Home With Glory was settled four back on the rails after breaking sluggishly, ducked inside three off the fence at the 250m after being steadied for a run soon after straightening and finished willingly to take third. Leo's Pride looked the winner at the 150m, but blew up 50m out. Smashed late to start favourite, Gilded Flight eventually cleared at the 1,200m for the lead, hit the straight nearly a length on top after muddling fractions and gave way over the final 150m. Viva Guy made his run second from the rear, peeled widest out upon straightening and ran on well without threatening. Early favourite Jolly Wongchoy sat outside the leader in second, cornered in four deep and was in tight quarters at the 100m, though was already a beaten runner. Splendid Champion travelled a cozy fifth and one off the fence, straightened three deep and was a beaten runner 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (151) - LOS ANGELES HANDICAP (Sec 1) - Class 4 - 1650 Meters HOME WITH GLORY was slow to begin.

GILDED FLIGHT was crowded for room at the start between NICKU and SOMETHING SPECIAL, both of which shifted ground.

A short distance after the start, SOMETHING SPECIAL, which had been taken across behind runners, was steadied when crowded for room between GILDED FLIGHT and VIVA GUY.

Near the 400 Metres, HOME WITH GLORY was steadied when disappointed for running between SPLENDID CHAMPION and YUAN'S FORTUNE, both of which shifted slight ground.

After this, HOME WITH GLORY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SPLENDID CHAMPION.

Throughout the race, NICKU travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

T Angland (SNITZEL KID) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 100 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of HOME WITH GLORY, causing that horse to be hampered when taken in across the rightful running of JOLLY WONGCHOY which as a result was also hampered and lost the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

T Angland was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 5 December 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, 27 November 2011.

A veterinary inspection of JOLLY WONGCHOY after the race did not show any significant findings, however, it was not able to be scoped.

GILDED FLIGHT, YUAN'S FORTUNE and SNITZEL KID were sent for sampling.
