Recap by phillip woo

Lucky Nine settled behind midfield and three deep with cover, rounded the final bend with two wider out and wore down Entrapment and Joy And Fun in a thrilling three-way battle over the final 200m for a narrow success. Entrapment was rated sixth and on the rails, swept to the lead 300m out from Bated Breath and kept finding to go down in a nail-biter while settling for a dead-heat second. Joy And Fun settled midfield and two deep, poked his head narrowly in front and went down fighting. Little Bridge travelled a handy fourth along the fence, strung up in traffic four deep behind Bated Breath, shifted inside at the 200m and kept on well for a distant fourth. Current Chan slotted in fifth and one-off the fence, hit the straight four deep and kept on OK without quickening. Rich Unicorn made his run at the rear and never made an impression. Admiration travelled fourth from the rear and two-to-three deep, swung the final bend with one wider out and only got passed beaten runners late.Sacred Kingdom and Rocket Man did nothing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (234) - THE CATHAY PACIFIC HONG KONG SPRINT - Group One - 1200 Meters SOCIETY ROCK and SACRED KINGDOM were slow to begin.

When being steadied to obtain cover after the 1100 Metres, SACRED KINGDOM got its head up and proved difficult to settle.

K Ikezoe (CURREN CHAN) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 900 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of ENTRAPMENT, causing that horse to be checked.

K Ikezoe was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 5 January 2012 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Arima Kinen racemeeting (Group 1) to be conducted at Nakayama Racecourse on Sunday, 25 December 2011.

Rounding the Home Turn, CURREN CHAN was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ROCKET MAN.

Near the 200 Metres, PAS DE TROIS, which was commencing to give ground, was steadied away from the heels of LITTLE BRIDGE which shifted in after being held up for clear running.

ROCKET MAN travelled wide and without cover throughout the race.

Trainer P B Shaw was spoken to regarding ROCKET MAN proceeding to the Start not having paraded in front of the grandstand without having sought the approval of the Stewards.

A veterinary inspection of ROCKET MAN and SACRED KINGDOM after the race did not show any significant findings.

LITTLE BRIDGE, LUCKY NINE, ENTRAPMENT and JOY AND FUN were sent for sampling.
