Recap by phillip woo

King Of Reason cleared from gate 11 to enjoy the box-seat run behind the leader Californiavitality, slipped through along the inside to hit the front 250m out, opened up by two lengths at the 150m and kept finding to score back-to-back wins. Sterling City settled three deep around midfield with cover, turned the final bend with two wider out, loomed a winning chance at the 200m and couldn't get to the winner. It was a nice effort in defeat off a rise in grade and trip and he remains one to follow. Flash Knight finished off with purpose to grab third 50m out. Green Eagle was badly strung up in traffic while straightening, eventually got into the clear at the 150m and finished up well to be a luckless fourth. G-One Winning was a handy fifth in the run and one off the fence, cruised to a narrow lead at the 300m and found little under pressure over the last 150m with every conceivable chance. Groovy made a steady late bid without menacing, along with Keen Wongchoy.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (194) - CHEVALIER SENIORS HOUSING HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1400 Meters BEST WIN was withdrawn on 24.11.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (substantial amount of mucopus on scoping after track work) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter TRUMP (M Chadwick).

Before being allowed to race again, BEST WIN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

From wide barriers, TRUMP, FLASH KNIGHT and RIDE WITH THE WIND were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, GROOVY was hampered and SIR EAGLES checked when crowded for room between G-ONE WINNING which was taken out by BERIO and CALIFORNIAVITALITY (K C Leung) which, when being ridden along, shifted in.

K C Leung was reprimanded and advised to ensure he employs every available measure to prevent his mounts from shifting ground.

Approaching and passing the 1000 Metres, GROOVY proved difficult to settle and had to be checked away from the heels of KING OF PATCH for some distance.

Then after the 800 Metres, GROOVY got its head up when being checked away from the heels of SIR EAGLES.

TRUMP, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

After the 800 Metres, GREEN EAGLE was checked away from the heels of KING OF REASON.

Also after the 800 Metres, G-ONE WINNING was shifted out away from the heels of BERIO when awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse.

KING FOLKS, which was racing to the outside of G-ONE WINNING, was taken wider.

After this, KING FOLKS travelled wide and without cover.

TRUMP was badly held up for clear running until near the 250 Metres.

GREEN EAGLE was not able to obtain clear running until after the 200 Metres.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of BERIO, T H So stated that his mount travelled well until the 400 Metres at which point he placed the horse under pressure.

He said BERIO did not respond to his riding and, in his opinion, was disappointing, particularly given that it had been racing consistently prior to this race.

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

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that SIR EAGLES had lost its right front plate.

A veterinary inspection of CALIFORNIAVITALITY after the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in the horse's trachea and it had lost its right hind plate.

KING OF REASON and STERLING CITY were sent for sampling.

18 November 2012 Sha Tin Racemeeting !V Race 5 (170) The Stewards today interviewed Trainer Y S Tsui regarding the instructions issued to G Moss?m, the rider of COSMO ONE in this race.

Mr Tsui confirmed that he had asked Jockey Moss?m to ride COSMO ONE more quietly than had been the case in its previous races, predominantly due to the horse's wide barrier.

He said whilst COSMO ONE had been running consistently, the horse had not been finishing off as he would have hoped when ridden for speed in the majority of its races.

He said that from barrier 13, he felt that too much use would have had to be made of COSMO ONE to cross runners to its inside which would not have afforded the horse the opportunity to close off the race.

He added that given the circumstances of this race, he was satisfied with the way in which COSMO ONE raced when ridden in a position just worse than midfield.
