Recap by phillip woo

Well-fancied favourite Peri Peri Saffron made his run fifth the from the rear and one off the fence after a tardy break, swung the final bend with two wider out and let down willingly to take control 150m out for an overdue win with a suitable step up in distance. He's got more room for improvement and remains one to follow next season. Lucky Chevalier settled midfield and one off the fence, straightened four to five deep and ran on well to grab second 100m out. Triumphant Way was taken back to eventually settle at the rear from the widest gate, pushed into the clear with two wider out upon straightening and ran on nicely to take third 50m out. Young Talent home nicely an encouraging fourth in his debut. One Of A Kind kept on one-paced over the last 200m, while Step High kept plugging away without threatening in an improved performance. All Bountiful was off stride when copping a bump by Triumphant Way while cornering and kept on late passed beaten gallopers.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (763) - MY CHOICE HANDICAP (Sec 2) - Class 4 - 1400 Meters MONEY WIN WINS began awkwardly and shifted out, resulting in PERI PERI SAFFRON being badly hampered and losing ground.

Soon after the start, LUCKY NISTELROOY was hampered when crowded for room between MATSUKAZE which shifted out slightly and STEP HIGH which was taken in by ONE OF A KIND.

In this incident, LUCKY NISTELROOY bumped MATSUKAZE which became unbalanced.

From wide barriers, GRAND CHAMPION and TRIUMPHANT WAY were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the 900 Metres, TRIUMPHANT WAY got its head up and proved difficult to settle when awkwardly placed close to the heels of GRAND CHAMPION.

Approaching the 700 Metres, GOLDEN BAUHINIA was checked away from the heels of PINNASINGA.

LUCKY NISTELROOY, which was following, shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse, resulting in LUCKY CHEVALIER racing tight inside STEP HIGH for some distance.

K C Leung (PERI PERI SAFFRON) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that rounding the Home Turn he permitted his mount to shift out when not clear of GRAND CHAMPION, causing that horse to be checked and blunder badly.

ALL BOUNTIFUL, which was following, was severely checked away from the heels of GRAND CHAMPION and when being checked away from the heels of that horse became further unbalanced when obliged to avoid the heels of TRIUMPHANT WAY which at this time was shifting out.

In considering all the circumstances, the Stewards decided to exercise the discretion provided to them by the Rules of Racing to defer Jockey Leungs suspension from riding in races to commence on the first racemeeting of the 2012/2013 racing season and thereafter for a period incorporating the first two racemeetings of the season (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, K C Leung was fined $60,000 in lieu of a suspension for a period incorporating two further racedays.

When considering penalty, the Stewards took into consideration the severity of the incident.

Also rounding the Home Turn, MONEY WIN WINS momentarily raced tight inside LUCKY NISTELROOY which momentarily got its head on the side and shifted in slightly when racing tight inside LUCKY CHEVALIER.

Throughout the race, STEP HIGH and DIAMOND RAINBOW travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that PERI PERI SAFFRON had sustained a superficial abrasion to the right hind tendon region.

Also after the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on PINNASINGA at the request of Trainer A S Cruz.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in the horse's trachea.

A veterinary inspection of MATSUKAZE, GRAND CHAMPION and ALL BOUNTIFUL after the race did not show any significant findings.

PERI PERI SAFFRON and LUCKY CHEVALIER were sent for sampling.
