Recap by phillip woo

Easy Job was given an uncontested lead while pinging to the front from gate 11, set a moderate pace while opening up by two lengths at the 400m and kept on well for an upset win for his new trainer David Hall after showing absolutely nothing in three other runs. Early favourite Fantastisch settled ahead of midfield and three deep, was under pressure to pick up at the 600m, cornered in four deep and stayed on well for second. Telecom Gogo was finishing up best of all to collar Racing Spirit in the dying stages for third. Racing Spirit was pipped late for a placing. Storm's Destiny cornered in with three wider out and kept on steadily without threatening. Late-fancied favourite M's Magic kept on passed beaten runners with a step up in trip. Bullish Power came up one-paced over the final 200m. Noble Twins settled midfield and on the rails, peeled one off at the 400m and found nothing under a hustling ride. He just doesn't act on this surface. Plot Ratio travelled three deep and behind midfield, moved up to fifth and three deep entering the straight, cornered in five wide and was struggling 300m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (489) - TUNG LUNG CHAU HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1800 Meters PRECISION MAGIC was slow to begin.

HAPPY EAGLE was slow to begin and then a short distance after the start was steadied away from the heels of FANTASTISCH which shifted out after beginning awkwardly.

Near the 1700 Metres, CHEERFUL DOUBLE blundered after being bumped by HAPPY EAGLE.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, FANTASTISCH was steadied away from the heels of RACING SPORT which shifted in when only just clear.

After passing the winning post on the first occasion, MS MAGIC commenced to over-race and was checked away from the heels of RACING SPORT which got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of STORMS DESTINY.

BULLISH POWER travelled wide and without over until after the 700 Metres.

HAPPY EAGLE also travelled wide and without cover throughout the race.

Passing the 600 Metres, RACING SPORT became unbalanced when improving into tight running between NOBLE TWINS and STORMS DESTINY which made contact with FANTASTISCH on a number of occasions as STORMS DESTINY attempted to improve around the heels of BULLISH POWER.

MS MAGIC was held up for clear running rounding the Home Turn.

CHEERFUL DOUBLE had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Near the 300 Metres, TELECOM GOGO shifted out and bumped PLOT RATIO which was giving ground.

U Rispoli (TELECOM GOGO) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that over the concluding stages he permitted his mount to shift in under pressure, resulting in STORMS DESTINY being taken in onto MS MAGIC, causing MS MAGIC to be bumped heavily and to become badly unbalanced.

U Rispoli was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 19 April 2012 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 Monday, 9 April 2012.

A veterinary inspection of PLOT RATIO after the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, PLOT RATIO will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of NOBLE TWINS after the race did not show any significant findings.

MS MAGIC, EASY JOB and FANTASTISCH were sent for sampling.
