Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Giggles Forever settled worse than midfield and near the inside, peeled five wide upon straightening and stretched out nicely to take control 20m out for the win at his second start. He has the potential to head higher and won't mind a 1,400m trip as well. Meridian Treasure tracked the leaders Take By Storm and Honour List in third, circled the final bend three deep, hit the lead 100m out and held off Always Well for second in an encouraging debut effort. Always Well settled in midfield and two deep, briefly hit the front 150m out and stayed on one-paced over the last 100m with a return to Class Four. Mega Posh made his run at the back after a sluggish break, moved closer with three behind him at the 600m and was finishing up nicely over the final 100m to add value in fourth. Honour List crossed from a wide gate to hold the rails in a battle for the lead with Take By Storm, stayed to the fence upon straightening and gave way in the final 100m in a game effort with a return to Class Four. Take By Storm pressed forward from gate 14 to go toe-to-toe for the lead with Honour List, straightened narrowly on top and ran out of steam 100m out. Late-fancied favourite Supreme Hong Kong appears to want further than the 1,200m. En Masse was struggling 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (354) - BILLION WIN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200 Meters MEGA POSH was slow to begin.

GIGGLES FOREVER began awkwardly and then shifted out, resulting in SUPREME HONG KONG being taken out onto the hindquarters of ALWAYS WELL.

In the early stages, when being steadied, GIGGLES FOREVER got its head up and proved difficult to settle.

Near the 1000 Metres, DARS AUTO was momentarily crowded for room inside MERIDIAN TREASURE which shifted in.

When being corrected by its rider, MERIDIAN TREASURE shifted out, resulting in FLYING HIGH being steadied away from the heels of that horse.

Apprentice K C Ng (MERIDIAN TREASURE) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that after the 900 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of ALWAYS WELL, causing that horse to be checked when crowded for room and contributing to GIGGLES FOREVER which was racing to the inside of ALWAYS WELL being hampered and losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

Apprentice Ng was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 16 February 2012 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 5 February 2012.

After this, ALWAYS WELL shifted out when being checked away from the heels of MERIDIAN TREASURE, resulting in DARS AUTO being taken out and causing FLYING HIGH to be severely checked when crowded for room inside the hindquarters of EN MASSE which became badly unbalanced when contacted by FLYING HIGH.

GREY WHIZZ, which was following FLYING HIGH, was severely checked away from the heels of that horse and shifted out abruptly.

SUPREME HONG KONG and F S WINNER, which were also following, were hampered in consequence.

After this, EN MASSE travelled wide and without cover.

Near the 700 Metres, SUPREME HONG KONG was momentarily crowded for room between GIGGLES FOREVER which got its head on the side and shifted out and DARS AUTO which shifted in slightly.

Approaching the 200 Metres, DARS AUTO got its head on the side and shifted out abruptly.

Approaching and passing the 200 Metres, ALWAYS WELL got its head on the side and shifted in, resulting in its rider, Apprentice C Y Ho, having to stop riding and straighten his mount.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that EN MASSE had sustained a large laceration wound to the back of the right knee, that ALWAYS WELL had lost its left front plate and that HONOUR LIST had lost its left hind plate.

Before being allowed to race again, EN MASSE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SUPREME HONG KONG, GIGGLES FOREVER and MERIDIAN TREASURE were sent for sampling.
