Recap by phillip woo

Shahjee went forward to lead from a wide gate approaching the 1,000m, straightened a length on top and kept finding to edge clear for a second win from four starts. Forever Elation settled three back and along the fence, straightened two deep, switched into the clear at the 300m and finished up nicely to grab Galaxy Prancer 100m out for second. Galaxy Prancer was deep early on, before slotting in with cover one off in fourth at the 1,000m, straightened three deep and kept on one-paced to hold a placing. Corporal Jones recovered quickly to settle behind midfield and on the rails after a sluggish break, straightened three deep and had to steady between Forever Elation and Galaxy Prancer 100m out. He should have gone closer. Gold-Fun ran on steadily to make it tight for fourth in a pleasing debut effort. Plunged at the jump to start favourite, Adoration enjoyed the run of the race but was disappointing once again. Supreme Flight cornered in three deep with every possible chance and came up empty over the last 150m. He'll need ratings relief. Cultural City blew up 150m out as the early favourite in his first run following a stable change and gelding operation for trainer John Moore.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (171) - LION ROCK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400 Meters BATCHELOR KEEN began awkwardly.

CORPORAL JONES was slow to begin.

From a wide barrier, SWEET CORNER was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

When left racing wide and without cover after the 1200 Metres, FLYING SMART proved difficult to settle.

O Doleuze (GOLD-FUN) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1100 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of SWEET CORNER, causing that horse to be checked and lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

In this incident, PRETTY BLUEBERRY was also hampered.

O Doleuze was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 17 December 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 Sunday, 9 December 2012.

In addition, O Doleuze was fined $40,000 in lieu of a suspension for a period incorporating one further raceday.

After the 900 Metres, CULTURAL CITY was left racing wide and without cover.

Also after the 900 Metres, FLYING SMART was bumped by CULTURAL CITY which was taken out by BATCHELOR KEEN which got its head on the side and lay out.

At the 500 Metres, PEPPERMINT was checked away from the heels of BATCHELOR KEEN which itself was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GALAXY PRANCER.

PRETTY BLUEBERRY, which was following, was checked away from the heels of PEPPERMINT in consequence.

Rounding the Home Turn, OPEN SESAME was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CORPORAL JONES.

Also rounding the Home Turn, PRETTY BLUEBERRY raced tight between SWEET CORNER and PEPPERMINT which shifted out to obtain clear running.

Inside the 100 Metres, CORPORAL JONES was checked and shifted to the outside of FOREVER ELATION when disappointed for running between that horse and GALAXY PRANCER which shifted out marginally.

A veterinary inspection of ADORATION and CULTURAL CITY after the race did not show any significant findings.

ADORATION, SHAHJEE and FOREVER ELATION were sent for sampling.
