Recap by phillip woo

Perfect Cheers settled midfield and three deep with cover, took off on the back of a slow pace to lead one off at the 800m from Flying Unicorn, straightened nearly level for the front and kept finding to score an upset win. Hammered late, Flying Unicorn rolled to the front from gate six, was headed at the 800m, fought back to level things up soon after straightening and lost out in a ding-dong battle off a light weight with a step up in grade. Well-punted late, Vital Gold tacked on fourth from the rear and one off from a wide gate, swung the final bend widest out and finished up willingly to snatch third from favourite Happy Era. The latter enjoyed a soft run in fourth along the rails, stayed to the paint upon straightening, had his opportunity if good enough and was one-paced over the final 150m under a big weight. Albiceleste went forward to track the leader in second and one off at the 1,200m, was back to third and one off at the 800m, rallied four wide upon straightening and came up one-paced. Noble Deluxe held a position in midfield and on the rails, straightened one off the rails and only held his ground in the dash to the line. Little Dreams travelled behind midfield and without cover three deep, swung the final bend with two wider out and kept on evenly over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (711)-WONG NAI CHUNG GAP HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650Metres

At declaration time, T Angland was declared as the rider of both HAPPY ERA and PERFECT CHEERS.

It was established that T Angland had a firm commitment to ride HAPPY ERA.

As such, the Stewards permitted W C Marwing to be substituted as the rider of PERFECT CHEERS.

For this declaration error, Trainer C Fownes was fined $2,000.

FLYING UNICORN began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, GALAXY PRANCER, VITAL GOLD and JUN GONG were all taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, LITTLE DREAMS was steadied away from the heels of WAH MAY STAR which shifted in.

After the 1100 Metres, PERFECT CHEERS was left racing wide and without cover and was allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead.

Approaching the 900 Metres, NOBLE DELUXE got its head up when proving difficult to settle.

Passing the 900 Metres, WAH MAY STAR commenced to race fiercely and had to be checked away from the heels of FAMILISTS for some distance.

Passing the 800 Metres, LITTLE DREAMS was left racing wide and without cover.

GALAXY PRANCER made the Home Turn awkwardly.

Rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, JUN GONG got its head on the side, hung in and proved difficult to ride.

O Doleuze (VITAL GOLD) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 100 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of LITTLE DREAMS, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

O Doleuze was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 11 July 2013 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Monday, 1 July 2013.

In addition, O Doleuze was fined $40,000 in lieu of a suspension for a period incorporating 1 further raceday.

For some distance approaching and passing the 100 Metres, HAPPY ERA raced in restricted room inside FLYING UNICORN.

Then approaching the 50 Metres, HAPPY ERA had to be steadied when unable to maintain its position inside FLYING UNICORN (C K Tong) which shifted in under pressure.

Because of this, HAPPY ERA was not able to be tested over the concluding stages.

C K Tong was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

GALAXY PRANCER was not able to obtain clear running over the concluding stages and because of this was not able to be tested.

After the race, T Berry (FUN RIDER) said that his mount did not stretch out when placed under pressure in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of FUN RIDER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

Also after the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that JUN GONG had lost its right front plate.

A veterinary inspection of WAH MAY STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HAPPY ERA, PERFECT CHEERS and FLYING UNICORN were sent for sampling.

GENERAL: 1.

Races 3 - 8 were each put back 10 minutes.

16 June 2013 Sha Tin Racemeeting - Race 3 (696) After reviewing the videos for the Sha Tin racemeeting conducted on 16 June 2013, the Stewards felt it appropriate to question Jockey W C Marwing, the rider of DARK SECRET, regarding his riding of that horse, particularly in the early part of the Straight.

W C Marwing stated that he had been instructed to ensure that he ride the horse quietly as it had not finished off its races when it was attempted to place the horse in a more forward position.

He said he was following MEDIC CHAMPION along for the majority of the race and rounding the Home Turn was taken back when that horse did not improve its position.

He said he had been asked if possible to obtain inside runs but when MEDIC CHAMPION commenced to give ground, he did not feel that inside runs would present themselves, therefore he switched the horse to the outside to make its finishing run.

He added in the early part of the Straight when he was riding the horse along hands and heels, DARK SECRET got its head up and for this reason he did not immediately commence to ride it with the whip but rather he attempted to ensure that it was balanced before commencing to ride it out with the whip.

He said near the 200 Metres he commenced to ride DARK SECRET with the whip and whilst the horse made up some ground, it finished off the race only one-paced.

Trainer D E Ferraris confirmed that he had asked Jockey Marwing to ride the horse quietly in the early stages and not to place it under full pressure too soon as it has limited ability and is not able to sustain a long run.

He also confirmed that he was satisfied with Jockey Marwings riding of the horse albeit he had been disappointed with the horses performance.

W C Marwing was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must ride his mounts in such a manner so as to ensure that there is no room for query.
