Recap by phillip woo

Medic Champion was well-rated on the front after making things tight for Casa Junior as he crossed from gate 12 to lead passing the first bend, was then hounded to his outside by Perfect Ten, shook that one off to establish a length lead at the 200m and kept on nicely to land a betting plunge in a race with plenty of market movement. Casa Junior was steadied entering the first bend to eventually settle third along the rails, straightened five deep and wore down Perfect Ten in deep straight for second. Perfect Ten settled fourth and two off the rails, went forward to attack the leader at the 1,000m, straightened four deep and grudgingly gave way over the final 100m with a return to his preferred Valley course. Favourite Lucky Army settled behind midfield and on the rails, cornered in four deep and ran on steadily late, despite having to take hold between runners in the final 10m. Specked late, Mirage R settled third from the rear and along the rails, came two off upon straightening and was getting going late when the race was all but over. O'Reilly Magic settled behind midfield and two deep, swung the final bend with one wider out and made some ground late without menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (521)-JIANGUOMEN HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

Shortly after the start, MIRAGE R blundered after being crowded for room between OREILLY MAGIC and MING HOI GLORY which got its head on the side and shifted out away from SAMMYS FORTUNE.

From a wide barrier, YOUNG HAPPY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the 1600 Metres, SUPREME TYCOON was hampered by PERFECT TEN which shifted out slightly.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, SAMMYS FORTUNE was crowded for room inside MIRAGE R which itself was awkwardly placed close to the heels of OREILLY MAGIC which got its head on the side and shifted in and away from SUPREME TYCOON.

Apprentice C Y Lui (MEDIC CHAMPION) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1400 Metres he failed to take sufficient measures to prevent his mount from shifting in when not clear of CASA JUNIOR, causing that horse to be checked and taken in onto DYNAMIC CROSS which also was checked and lost the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

Apprentice Lui was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 25 April 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, 17 April 2013.

MING HOI GLORY, which was following DYNAMIC CROSS, was hampered and shifted out away from the heels of that horse, resulting in PERFECT TEN being taken wider.

After this incident, CASA JUNIOR proved very difficult to settle for some distance.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, MING HOI GLORY shifted out and bumped SUPREME TYCOON.

Near the 500 Metres, LUCKY ARMY and OREILLY MAGIC raced tight.

Rounding the Home Turn, SUPREME TYCOON, OREILLY MAGIC and YOUNG HAPPY were all taken wider by WINNER SMART which shifted out.

Shortly after entering the Straight, YOUNG HAPPY shifted in and brushed OREILLY MAGIC.

Near the 150 Metres, SAMMYS FORTUNE was steadied and shifted out when crowded for room inside DYNAMIC CROSS which was taken in by MIRAGE R which after initially shifting in slightly was then corrected by its rider.

Approaching and passing the 100 Metres, YOUNG HAPPY got its head on the side and shifted in under pressure.

Over the concluding stages, MIRAGE R was awkwardly placed inside the heels of PERFECT TEN.

Also over the concluding stages, LUCKY ARMY was steadied when crowded for room between PERFECT TEN and CASA JUNIOR (W M Lai) which shifted in.

W M Lai was severely reprimanded and advised that whilst his mount did not shift appreciable ground, nonetheless it had been enough to cause interference to LUCKY ARMY and in similar circumstances he would be expected to make more of an effort to prevent his mounts from shifting in than he did on this occasion.

For the majority of the race, SUPREME TYCOON travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of SUPREME TYCOON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LUCKY ARMY, MEDIC CHAMPION and CASA JUNIOR were sent for sampling.
