Recap by phillip woo

Jun Dao led while shifting to the stand side, was two lengths clear mid-race and won with plenty in hand for a third success from five starts over this Sha Tin trip this season. Late-fancied favourite Mi Savvy settled midfield on the grandstand side and finished nicely to easily claim second at the 100m, but was never getting to the winner. He's improved on his two runs this term and will be hard to beat when next stepping out in a sprint at either course. Specked late, Dynamic Voyage settled behind midfield and two off the stands side before finishing up well to overhaul Oriental Prosper 30m out for a placing in a much-improved second-up effort. He may be worth keeping safe when next stepping out up to 1,200m. Oriental Prosper was prominent in the run two off the far side, shifted out under the right whip at the 300m and kept on well with a return to the Sha Tin straight. Early favourite Po Ching King had only one underneath in midfield and kept on one-paced when asked for an effort at the 400m. Newcomer Good Directions was in the betting market, but was yielding ground over the final 300m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (243) - HO CHUNG HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000 Meters DARPANA and MI SAVVY began awkwardly.

Shortly after the start, DOUBLE MASTER was awkwardly placed outside the heels of ORIENTAL PROSPER which shifted out.

ORIENTAL PROSPER was then shifted back in to relieve the tightening to DOUBLE MASTER.

After the 600 Metres, EVER BEAUTY raced in restricted room between PO CHING KING and POLYMER WIN which shifted in.

A short distance later, EVER BEAUTY was crowded for room inside POLYMER WIN when bumped by PO CHING KING which became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by EVER BEAUTY.

D Whyte (PO CHING KING) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 150 Metres he failed to take sufficient measures to prevent his mount from shifting out, resulting in POLYMER WIN being taken out across the rightful running of DOUBLE MASTER which was checked and lost the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

D Whyte was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 10 January 2013 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 Tuesday, 1 January 2013.

Over the concluding stages, POLYMER WIN was awkwardly placed outside PO CHING KING and close to the heels of ORIENTAL PROSPER.

Because of this, POLYMER WIN was not able to be fully tested.

Mr D Cruz, the trainer of EVER BEAUTY, reported that as EVER BEAUTY had been weakening badly in its recent races when ridden into a forward position, from todays inside draw, he instructed the horses rider to ride EVER BEAUTY more conservatively in the early stages to see whether it may be able to close off its race better than it had been of late.

He said he was once again disappointed with the performance of EVER BEAUTY and, depending on the circumstances of the future races, he will likely revert to having the horse ridden more positively in the early stages.

JUN DAO and MI SAVVY were sent for sampling.
