Recap by phillip woo

Fun 'n' Games was posted three wide without cover on the speed from an outside gate, got one off at the 600m, straightened three deep and wore down Sight Believer in a ding-dong battle over the final 200m for a narrow win with a drop in grade with blinkers. Plunged late, Sight Believer had to work to eventually lead from a wide gate, cornered a half-length on top and went down fighting. Early favourite Nobody But You made his run three back along the rails, shifted five deep upon straightening and ran on steadily to overhaul Golden Bauhinia in the final metres for a placing with a drop in grade. Golden Bauhinia enjoyed the run one-out, one-back, moved to be a clear third at the 250m and grudgingly gave way late. Delight Fortune settled at the rear, straightened three deep and worked home nicely in an improved performance. Sunshine Kid took up a position one off the rails in midfield, rounded the final bend five deep and only held his ground. Sunny Pearl travelled fourth from the rear and two off the rails, swung the final bend with three wider out, switched inside at the 250m and kept on passed beaten runners. Punted late, Mighty Gains enjoyed the box-seat run, stayed to the inside upon straightening and was giving way over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (139)-CYPRESS HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Metres

GOLDEN BAUHINIA shifted out at the start, resulting in DELIGHT FORTUNE being taken out onto D DAY SUPER.

FIERY FOUR BY FOUR was crowded for room at the start between SUNSHINE KID and MIGHTY GAINS which shifted out.

K Teetan (GOLDEN BAUHINIA) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that after the 800 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of SUNSHINE KID, causing that horse to be taken in across the rightful running of FIERY FOUR BY FOUR which as a result was checked and lost the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

In this incident, NOBODY BUT YOU became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by FIERY FOUR BY FOUR.

K Teetan was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 5 December 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, 24 November 2013.

Near the 700 Metres, SUNSHINE KID was hampered when crowded for room inside GOLDEN BAUHINIA which was taken in by FUN 'N' GAMES which was in turn taken in by SIGHT BELIEVER (T Angland).

T Angland was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear of other runners when shifting ground in future.

Also near the 700 Metres, SUNSHINE KID lost its right hind plate.

Near the 450 Metres, RECORD AGAIN became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by D DAY SUPER which shifted in when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FIERY FOUR BY FOUR.

At the entrance to the Straight, NOBODY BUT YOU and SUNSHINE KID raced tight.

Passing the 300 Metres, SUNNY PEARL was shifted to the inside of FIERY FOUR BY FOUR to obtain clear running.

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

FUN 'N' GAMES and SIGHT BELIEVER were sent for sampling.
