Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Flying Elite was given a gem of a ride by local lad Ben So Ting-hung in a one-out, one-back position, straightened three deep, swept to the front 100m out and drew clear for the victory and give Dennis Yip Chor-hung the trainer's championship. Red Dancer was shuffled back to travelled fourth from the rear and one off the rails, turned the final bend four deep and finished off well to be a clear second. Supreme Essence made his run behind midfield and one off the rails, shifted into the clear with three wider out at the 300m and ran on reasonably well to come out a clear-cut third. Plentiful eased back to settle midfield and on the rails after taking up a handy position early on, rallied three wide upon straightening and got up in the final 20m for fourth. Electronic Fortune rolled forward to eventually clear for the lead 1,000m out from a wide gate, straightened two lengths on top and grudgingly gave way over the final 100m. Yeung Sing made his run third from the rear, swung the final bend with one wider out and ran on steadily late. He's improving with racing. Royal Partner drove forward from a wide gate to settle second in the run and one off the rails, straightened five deep and was one-paced over the final 200m with a step up in distance.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (769)-GLORY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

As the start was effected, AMAZINGLY lifted its front feet off the ground and shortly afterwards was taken across behind runners.

Shortly after the start, RED DANCER was steadied away from the heels of SUPREME ESSENCE which was taken out by PLENTIFUL.

Near the 1300 Metres, CIRCUIT STAR proved difficult to settle and shifted out after being checked away from the heels of SUPREME ESSENCE.

Passing the 1200 Metres, SUPREME ESSENCE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING ELITE.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, AMAZINGLY proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when being checked away from the heels of RED DANCER.

After the 1000 Metres, CIRCUIT STAR was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 800 Metres, AMAZINGLY travelled keenly and was checked away from the heels of RED DANCER which shifted out slightly.

Rounding the Home Turn, ROYAL PARTNER got its head on the side and lay out.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of GRIFFINDOR, W C Marwing stated that he had been asked to ride the horse in the first five if possible.

He said GRIFFINDOR began only fairly and he had to ride the horse aggressively in the early stages to take up a forward position as instructed.

He said GRIFFINDOR then raced keenly in the early stages until he was able to obtain cover behind ELECTRONIC FORTUNE after the 900 Metres.

He said after this GRIFFINDOR travelled more comfortably, however, did not show any turn of foot when placed under pressure in the Straight.

He added, in his opinion, tonights disappointing performance could be attributed to the amount of use that had to be made of GRIFFINDOR in the early stages.

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

FLYING ELITE and RED DANCER were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

The following horse was replated in the saddling stalls:- Race 1: EMPIRE CITY (left hind) 2.

Jockeys A Suborics and K C Leung were each fined a sum of $5,000 for failing to attend the Pre-season Jockeys Meeting conducted on Monday, 8 July 2013.

3.

The Stewards tonight questioned Trainer A Schutz regarding a report that EMPIRE CITY (L169) and WIN ESPRIT (M404) had their number cloths partly obscured during track work on 5 July 2013 which made it difficult for the horses to be identified.

Mr Schutz was reminded of the Track Work Regulations which state that the number cloths of every horse must be clearly visible.

4.

Adjourned Inquiry V 4 July 2013 Happy Valley Racemeeting - Race 3 (744) The Stewards tonight concluded their inquiry into the reason for MR MARFACH blundering passing the 1100 Metres which resulted in its rider, G Mosse, being dislodged.

After taking evidence from Jockey Mosse and after viewing the videos, the Stewards found that approaching and passing the 1100 Metres MR MARFACH got its head on the side and shifted out marginally towards the heels of DARK SECRET which at this time was maintaining a position one horse off the rail.

The Stewards found that MR MARFACH most likely clipped the heels of DARK SECRET which resulted in the horse blundering at this time.

As the Stewards were satisfied that there was no rider error involved in this incident and that the shift from MR MARFACH was only a minimal one, they took no further action.
