Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Amber Sky showed terrific gate speed to lead from near the stands side from gate nine, opened up by three lengths at the 600m and pulled away for an impressive victory in good time under a big weight. Sichuan Vigour settled midfield and two off the far side from a middle gate and picked up well under pressure to nail Hard Ball Get 50m out for second in a good effort with a switch to straight course racing here. Hard Ball Get travelled midfield on the stands side, worked to second at the 100m and kept on nicely in an improved third-place effort with the step back in distance here. Bear Hero was prominent in the run three off the outside fence and kept on reasonably well, despite being off the track for a long time. Choice Treasure settled behind midfield and near the stands side before running on without menacing. Beauty Sparkle enjoyed a lovely run tracking the leading pair on the grandstand side but only plodded over the final 200m. He may be on his mark now. Imperial Champion made some ground late without menacing in his initial run over the straight 1,000m. Dane Patrol couldn't match the speed of Amber Sky and was struggling 250m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (125)-ALBATROSS HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1000Metres

Whilst in the saddling stalls, HELLA HEDGE had its right front plate adjusted.

HELLA HEDGE was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

HELLA HEDGE was crowded for room at the start between IMPERIAL CHAMPION and SICHUAN VIGOUR which shifted in.

CHEETAH BOY was slow to begin.

FUN TAPESTRY, which was leaning on the outside of its stall as the start was effected, began awkwardly.

Apprentice C Y Lui (DANE PATROL) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that shortly after the start when riding his mount along he permitted it to shift out when not clear of KA YING KID, causing that horse to be badly hampered and in turn taken out onto IMPERIAL CHAMPION which was buffeted for room to the outside of KA YING KID.

Apprentice Lui was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 14 November 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 Sunday, 3 November 2013.

Approaching the 700 Metres, SICHUAN VIGOUR got its head on the side and lay in.

For the majority of the race, BEAUTY SPARKLE got its head on the side and hung in and over the final 200 Metres proved difficult to ride.

A veterinary inspection of BEAUTY SPARKLE, FUN TAPESTRY and DANE PATROL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

AMBER SKY and SICHUAN VIGOUR were sent for sampling.
