Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Naughty Baby settled three deep and one off the rails, rounded the final bend five deep, poked his head in front at the 100m and kept on gamely to score a maiden win at his 14 th start, despite a tendency to badly hang in. Lovely Boy settled fourth along the rails, straightened three deep and ran on nicely to make it a ding-dong battle over the final 100m in a nice performance following a stable change to Casper Fownes. Ocean Roar easily found the front, cornered nearly two lengths on top and just held Brave Brother for third, despite the return to Class Four. Brave Brother settled midfield and on the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and ran on steadily to just miss a placing. China Power settled second on the rails, rounded the final bend four deep, had to steady when checked between Naughty Baby and Ocean Roar approaching the 100m and kept on evenly thereafter. Victory General settled fourth from the rear and along the rails, improved his position at the 600m, swung the final bend six deep and made up some ground without menacing. Southern Springs made his run worse than midfield and one off the rails, shifted widest out at the 250m and kept on evenly over the final 150m. Expedite settled fifth and one off the rails, rounded the final bend.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (706)-MOUNT NICHOLSON HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

After arriving at the saddling area, NAMJONG BLOSSOMS was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said the horse was lame in its right front leg and as such was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, the Steward ordered the withdrawal of NAMJONG BLOSSOMS.

Before being allowed to race again, NAMJONG BLOSSOMS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SMART KIDS began awkwardly and then despite being ridden along in the early stages was slow to muster speed and consequently raced back in the field.

From the outside barrier, VICTORY GENERAL was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, BRAVE BROTHER was steadied away from the heels of EXPEDITE which got its head on the side and shifted in despite the efforts of its rider.

After being ridden along in the early stages, MEDIC KINGDOM was left racing wide making the first turn and after the 1000 Metres was taken across behind runners.

A veterinary inspection of MEDIC KINGDOM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of MEDIC KINGDOM, which finished tailed out after racing wide and without cover for the majority of the race, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, MEDIC KINGDOM will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

OCEAN ROAR travelled keenly in the early and middle stages.

At the entrance to the Straight, LOVELY BOY was shifted to the inside of the heels of CHINA POWER to obtain clear running.

M L Yeung (NAUGHT BABY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 100 Metres he failed to take sufficient measures to prevent his mount from shifting in when not clear of CHINA POWER, causing that horse to be checked and lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

M L Yeung was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 11 July 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 Thursday, 4 July 2013.

After this, NAUGHTY BABY continued to hang in, resulting in OCEAN ROAR being bumped and taken in onto LOVELY BOY which was also hampered.

BRAVE BROTHER, which was racing to the inside of LOVELY BOY, was inconvenienced in consequence.

NAUGHTY BABY continued to hang in badly for the remainder of the race.

Having regard to NAUGHTY BABYs prior history of hanging in its races and the fact that the horse had previously been barred on one occasion for hanging in, the Stewards ruled that NAUGHTY BABY must perform satisfactorily in a series of consecutive official barrier trials under pressure before being allowed to race again.

For the majority of the race, EXPEDITE travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of SMART KIDS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

NAUGHTY BABY and LOVELY BOY were sent for sampling.
