Recap by phillip woo

Rumba King was nicely rated around midfield and one off the rails, just avoided an incident at the 650m, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished up nicely to run down favourite Noble Alpha 50m out with money coming on late. Noble Alpha settled fifth along the rails, rushed to the front one off at the 250m and found one too good in the end. Slick Bullet settled behind midfield and on the rails after a tardy break, rallied four deep and ran on steadily. Pretty One made his run third from the rear along the rails after breaking awkwardly, straightened three deep and kept on nicely to the line, despite shifting under the whip over the final 200m. Keen Wongchoy bided his time second from the rear and was hitting the line well. Choice Treasure travelled one-out, one-back, straightened four deep and kept on one-paced over the final 200m. Masquerader gave way over the final 150m. Jun Gong did little. Rocket Let Win ran off the track when getting squeezed out between runners at the 650m and never recovered thereafter.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (738)-THE HONG KONG REUNIFICATION CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 2 - 1200Metres

BUNDLE OF LOVE was withdrawn on 30.6.13 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore foot) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter CHOICE TREASURE (Z Purton).

Before being allowed to race again, BUNDLE OF LOVE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GETAWAY GUY, which kicked a rail when proceeding to the Start, was examined by the Veterinary Officer on arrival behind the barriers who said the horse was suitable to race.

SLICK BULLET began only fairly.

PRETTY ONE began awkwardly.

Making the first turn near the 700 Metres, GETAWAY GUY hung in despite the considerable efforts of its rider, M L Yeung, to prevent the horse from shifting in.

As a result of GETAWAY GUY hanging in, JUN GONG was severely checked away from the heels of that horse.

R Fourie (MASQUERADER) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 700 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of CHOICE TREASURE, resulting in that horse being taken across the rightful running of ROCKET LET WIN which was severely checked, became badly unbalanced and then shifted out abruptly across the heels of CHOICE TREASURE and bumped heavily with SKY MASCOT which was severely hampered and taken wide.

When ROCKET LET WIN was severely checked, RUMBA KING, which was following, was shifted in abruptly away from the heels of that horse.

R Fourie was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 25 July 2013 on which day he may resume race riding.

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 10 July 2013.

The performances of ROCKET LET WIN and SKY MASCOT, which finished tailed out, were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, ROCKET LET WIN and SKY MASCOT will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of ROCKET LET WIN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

RUMBA KING and NOBLE ALPHA were sent for sampling.
