Recap by phillip woo

Specked late at odds, Banksters Bonus travelled nicely ahead of midfield and on the rails, switched into the clear one off the leader at the 200m and took control 80m out for an upset win. Finezza made his run at the rear, peeled widest out upon straightening and finished up willingly to grab second 30m out. Mr Bond bided his time fourth from the rear, stayed to the inside upon straightening and went to the line nicely to grab a placing. Jimson The Best had to work to lead rounding the first bend, straightened near two lengths on top and gave way grudgingly over the last 100m. Perfect Cheers travelled behind midfield and two deep, switched into the clear with two wider out upon straightening and was doing his best work late to make it close for fourth. Early favourite Bubble Chic made his run second from the rear and two deep, made his move 650m out, cornered with one wider out and kept on all right with a switch to Happy Valley for this run. He's looking for a longer trip. Business As Usual enjoyed the box-seat, straightened one off the fence with every chance and came up one-paced over the last 100m. Firming late to jump favourite Dragon Fighter turned the final bend six deep and only held his ground over the final 200m with a return to Class Two.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (082) - YEW HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650 Meters MR BOND was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, BUBBLE CHIC and FINEZZA were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 1000 Metres, BANKSTERS BONUS became unbalanced and lost ground when momentarily tightened for room inside ENABLING which got its head on the side and shifted in marginally.

Near the 500 Metres, ENABLING, which was being shifted to the outside of DRAGON FIGHTER to prevent HOLIDAY SUN improving to its outside, was checked when disappointed for running between HOLIDAY SUN and DRAGON FIGHTER which was shifted to the outside of REAL SUPREME which was commencing to give ground.

For some distance after the 500 Metres, PERFECT CHEERS and BUBBLE CHIC raced tight as PERFECT CHEERS shifted out to obtain clear running.

A Suborics (STRAIGHT FORWARD) 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 ENABLING, causing that horse to be crowded for room, to be severely checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

A Suborics was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 25 October 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 Wednesday, 17 October 2012.

Passing the 250 Metres, PERFECT CHEERS and BUBBLE CHIC bumped.

Over the final 100 Metres, ENABLING was not able to obtain clear running and because of this was not ridden out to the end of the race.

Over the concluding stages, BUBBLE CHIC and PERFECT CHEERS raced tight.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of REAL SUPREME, M Chadwick stated that, from a wide barrier, he allowed his mount to improve into a forward position in the early stages.

He said whilst the early tempo was solid, REAL SUPREME was able to work its way forward to race outside the leader, JIMSON THE BEST after the 1100 Metres.

He said he became concerned with the manner in which REAL SUPREME was travelling at the 900 Metres as the horse was not on the bridle and travelling as well as it had done in its previous races when ridden by him.

He added that he had to niggle at REAL SUPREME along the Back Straight to maintain its position, however, the horse came under heavy pressure at the 600 Metres and despite being ridden along weakened out of the race from this point of the race.

He said he was not able to offer any reason for the disappointing performance of REAL SUPREME as the horse had worked well in the lead up to tonight's race.

A veterinary inspection of REAL SUPREME after the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of REAL SUPREME was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, REAL SUPREME will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of DRAGON FIGHTER after the race did not show any significant findings.

DRAGON FIGHTER, BANKSTERS BONUS and FINEZZA were sent for sampling.
