Recap by phillip woo

The centre of the track appears the place to be this evening. Happy Champion made his run at the rear after a sluggish break from gate 12, had only Wiser further back after pushing widest out at the top of the straight and quickened brilliantly to take control 30m out for an impressive debut win. Wiser finished strongly to snatch second from Surfer Boy in the final stride. Fancied late, Surfer Boy swept to the lead briefly at the 50m while tending to lay out and was swamped late. Lucky Turbo travelled one-out, one-back, hit the straight four deep and kept on much better with the drop in grade. Lucky Red travelled sweetly along the rails in fourth, hit the lead at the 200m and kept on evenly over the final 100m. Turin Champion hit the straight five wide and was never tested over the final 100m when steadying off the heels of Surfer Boy. Well-punted late, Superior Warrior was struggling at the 200m. Favourite Lifeline Elite was hustled to lead through good fractions at the 800m after a sluggish break, was pestered three deep by Ride On The Fire at the 600m, straightened a half-length on top and was a spent force at the 200m. Amazing Sky made his run behind midfield and on the rails, hit the straight three deep and was never tested when short of room between Lifeline Elite and Ride On The Fire over the final 100m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (168) - DES VOEUX HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Meters RIDE ON THE FIRE began awkwardly.

WISER began awkwardly and then shortly after the start lost ground when bumped by AMAZING SKY which was taken out by LUCKY TURBO which itself shifted out after being bumped by SEIZE THE DAY.

LIFELINE ELITE was slow to begin.

From outside barriers, HAPPY CHAMPION and CREATIVE UNION were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the 400 Metres, TURIN CHAMPION was steadied away from the heels of SURFER BOY.

AMAZING SKY was not able to obtain clear running over the final 100 Metres and because of this was not properly tested.

Y T Cheng (SURFER BOY) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 100 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in across TURIN CHAMPION, resulting in that horse losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled and being hampered.

Y T Cheng was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 12 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, 4 December 2011.

After this incident, SURFER BOY then shifted out, resulting in TURIN CHAMPION, which was attempting to establish a run to the outside of that horse, being checked away from the heels of SURFER BOY for the remainder of the race.

Because of this, TURIN CHAMPION was not ridden out to the end of the race as it normally would be.

WISER, which was racing to the outside of TURIN CHAMPION, was taken wider and SUPERIOR WARRIOR, which was commencing to give ground, was steadied away from the heels of WISER.

Y T Cheng was told that whilst the Stewards were satisfied that TURIN CHAMPION did not establish running to the outside of SURFER BOY, nonetheless he was reprimanded and advised that he should make every effort to prevent his mounts from shifting ground.

A veterinary inspection of LIFELINE ELITE and AMAZING SKY after the race did not show any significant findings.

LIFELINE ELITE, HAPPY CHAMPION and WISER were sent for sampling.
