Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Travel Brand settled midfield and one off the fence, swept to the lead 300m out and drew clear for a convincing win with a step up in distance. He's come right and remains one to follow in the next grade. Super Strike settled behind midfield and two deep, straightened with three wider out and got up in the final 50m for second. It was a good effort on the back of a slow pace. Kharu enjoyed the box-seat run behind the muddling pace of Naughty Baby and kept on well to edge Good Thinker in the final few strides with a step up in trip. Good Thinker settled one off the fence, went to second at the 300m and kept on evenly over the final 100m. He's better over the mile. Burgundy Mac travelled underneath Travel Brand, rallied five wide upon straightening and made some ground. Happy Score settled a handy fifth and kept on one-paced under pressure. Sounds Excellent bided his time second from the rear, cornered in with one wider out and kept on passed beaten gallopers. Glory Of India , made a move at the 800m to settle a shade closer than midfield entering the straight, but came up flat over the last 200m. Sure Champ found little under the whip over the last 200m with some late-market support.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (067) - HUIZHOU HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800 Meters W M Lai (GOOD THINKER) was fined $2,000 for initially weighing out without a girth and a surcingle.

GOOD THINKER shifted in abruptly at the start, resulting in PANTHER RUN, which had been slow to begin, being checked.

When being crossed by NAUGHTY BABY at the 1500 Metres, KHARU got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of NAUGHTY BABY and became unbalanced.

KHARU continued to shift out, resulting in GOOD THINKER being checked when tightened for room between that runner and SURE CHAMP.

Approaching the 1200 Metres, PANTHER RUN commenced to over-race and shifted out away from the heels of GLORY OF INDIA.

W M Lai pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1300 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when insufficiently clear of TRAVEL BRAND, resulting in that horse being checked.

W M Lai was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 18 October 2012 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 10 October 2012.

HAPPY SCORE had difficulty obtaining clear running from the entrance to the Straight until approaching the 200 Metres.

After passing the 200 Metres, SECRETARY OF STATE was obliged to be shifted to the outside of the heels of SURE CHAMP after being disappointed for running between that runner and the tiring NAUGHTY BABY.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SOUNDS EXCELLENT, D Whyte stated that the only explanation he could offer was that the tempo of the race did not suit the horse.

He added nonetheless that SOUNDS EXCELLENT was quite disappointing in its failure to run on in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of SOUNDS EXCELLENT after the race did not show any significant findings.
