Recap by phillip woo

Sensationally-plunged in betting, Rich Tapestry was settled third from the rear and three deep after breaking about awkwardly, swung the final bend widest out and let down willingly to take control 100m out for the win with a switch to the dirt. Fortune Red Pepper settled midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend with two wider out and ran down short-priced favourite Happy Index 50m out for second. Happy Index worked hard from gate nine to dictate the running at a good pace, cornered a length on top and was giving way over the final 100m. Super Marshal settled fourth and one off the fence, cornered in four deep and wore down Sky Mascot late for a distant fourth with a switch to the dirt at only his second Hong Kong run. New Greenfield made his run fourth from the rear along the inside, peeled into the clear with two wider out at the 250m and ran on reasonably well to make it close in a battle for fourth. Sky Mascot sat third and one off the fence in the run, worked to second three deep entering the straight and kept on one-paced over the final 100m with every chance. My Name Is Bond was taken back to last at the break, was still last and two off the fence at the top of the straight and was getting going late when the race was all but over. He has been showing progress in recent runs and may be near a bottom. Adoration saved ground along the fence in fifth, failed to find under pressure soon after straightening and was stopping badly at the 200m with late-market support.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (625) - JUPITER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters ST DIDAR was withdrawn on 15.5.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right front foot) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter SUPER MARSHAL (M L Yeung).

Before being allowed to race again, ST DIDAR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

HAPPY TUMBLER and CAPITAL K were slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, RICH TAPESTRY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

D Whyte will be afforded the opportunity to explain the disappointing performance of ADORATION prior to the Sha Tin racemeeting on Saturday, 19 May 2012.

The Stewards opened an inquiry into Jockey Y T Chengs handling of MY NAME IS BOND.

After taking evidence from Jockey Cheng and Mr C H Yip, the trainer of MY NAME IS BOND, the Stewards adjourned the inquiry until a date to be fixed.

A veterinary inspection of ADORATION, MY NAME IS BOND and JUMBO GOLD after the race did not show any significant findings.

HAPPY INDEX, RICH TAPESTRY and FORTUNE RED PEPPER were sent for sampling.
