Recap by phillip woo

Glory Win was able to get into a spot one off the fence in fifth from the widest gate at the 800m, swung the final bend with two wider out and let down well to take control 50m out to land a betting plunge. Favourite Tomodachi held the fence while sharing the lead with Great Alexander, assumed a clear lead entering the final bend and found one too good in the final 50m. Well-punted late, Novel Start settled fourth along the fence, cornered in four deep, swept to third 100m out and held off the late surge of Star Of Fame for a placing. Star Of Fame settled behind midfield and one off the rails, peeled to the center of the course at the 200m and finished up nicely over the last 100m. Happy Homing settled midfield and one off the fence, swung the final bend widest out and ran on steadily without ever looking a threat of placing. Geronimo Meadow settled midfield and on the fence, stayed to the inside upon straightening and whacked on one-paced. Great Alexander narrowly led one off the fence, lost the front approaching the final bend and had no more to offer over the final 150m, despite a gear change to a hood and pacifiers. He will need more education. Dragimova cornered in five wide and was gradually giving way over the final 150m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (335)-CANAL HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200 Metres On arrival at the Start, it was noted that AMAZING ALWAYS had lost its right front plate.

This plate was refitted.

AMAZING ALWAYS was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

JACKS GEM, which was fractious in the barriers, began only fairly and shortly after the start was crowded for room between DRAGIMOVA and LITTLE RAINFOREST which shifted out.

GERONIMO MEADOW and GREAT ALEXANDER bumped at the start.

From a wide barrier, AMAZING ALWAYS was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

For some distance after the 1000 Metres, GREAT ALEXANDER proved difficult to settle.

W M Lai (NOVEL START) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 850 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of HAPPY HOMING, causing that horse to be hampered and lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

W M Lai was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 18 February 2013 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, 6 February 2013.

Close to the finishing line, JACKS GEM was checked away from the heels of DRAGIMOVA.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that LITTLE RAINFOREST had lost its left front plate.

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

GLORY WIN and TOMODACHI were sent for sampling.
