Recap by phillip woo

Mr Gnocchi settled midfield and on the rails after jumping nicely, straightened three deep and quickened nicely to take control 150m out for the victory. He appears to have room to head higher. Early favourite Glorious Sunday settled three deep behind midfield, rounded the final bend with one wider out and was getting to the line well for second with a suitable step up to the 1,400m. Multivictory was up with the leaders and one off the fence, straightened four deep and stayed on gamely to hold third in a blanket result. Mac Row made his run worse than midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend six deep and stayed on well to just miss a place result. Trump was patiently ridden second from the rear and three deep, pinched ground to take closer order behind midfield at the 800m, swung the final bend with two wider out and ran on steadily to make it a photo finish for third. Late-fancied favourite Glacier Blue had no more to offer approaching the 100m. Jolly Victor went one wider out at the 300m and ran on without threatening.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (054)-TIANJIN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Metres

HO IN ONE began awkwardly and consequently jumped only fairly.

BO BO EXPRESS was crowded for room at the start between MAC ROW which got its head on the side and shifted in away from MR GNOCCHI which itself shifted in and GLACIER BLUE which shifted out slightly.

From wide barriers, TRUMP and JOLLY VICTOR were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

For some distance after the 1100 Metres, BO BO EXPRESS proved very difficult to settle and got its head up when being checked away from the heels of MAC ROW.

After the 500 Metres, ABSOLUTE FANTASY was checked away from the heels of INVICTUS which at this time commenced to give ground after travelling wide and without cover throughout the race.

Approaching the 200 Metres, BORN TO WIN was shifted out away from the heels of GLACIER BLUE after initially proving reluctant to shift out.

Over the concluding stages, MAC ROW and TRUMP raced tight as a result of MAC ROW being shifted out away from the heels of GLORIOUS SUNDAY which shifted out slightly.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that an endoscopic examination of HO HO LIFE showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, HO HO LIFE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of INVICTUS and GLACIER BLUE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GLACIER BLUE, MR GNOCCHI and GLORIOUS SUNDAY were sent for sampling.

3.

25 September 2013 Happy Valley Racemeeting - Race 7 (43) The Stewards today questioned Trainer C S Shum regarding instructions he issued to Jockey H W Lai on CHARITY SPIRIT in this race.

Mr Shum explained that he felt that CHARITY SPIRIT had sufficient speed to cross BEAUTY SPARKLE which was drawn more favourably than CHARITY SPIRIT and that as a result CHARITY SPIRIT may be able to obtain the lead on the rail.

He said BUNDLE OF LOVE is a horse which he knows to possess speed and he advised Jockey Lai that it was open to him to maintain the position inside BUNDLE OF LOVE if that horse did indeed show speed or he could allow that horse to cross CHARITY SPIRIT and obtain the box seat.

Mr Shum stated that whilst Jockey Lai did ride CHARITY SPIRIT along in the early stages further than he would have preferred, nonetheless he felt that Jockey Lai was attempting to fulfil his riding instructions to cross BEAUTY SPARKLE on the rail.

Mr Shum was advised that, wherever possible, he is to provide flexibility in the instructions he issues to his riders so that horses trained by him are given the opportunity to finish off their races.
