Recap by phillip woo

Affluence Of Rain settled one-out, one-back, rallied three deep upon straightening and wore down the late-plunged Pretty One 50m out for the win in a race with no depth. Pretty One drove forward from the widest gate to park outside the leader Gold Edition at the 1,000m, assumed the front 200m out and went down fighting. He'll be hard to beat when drawing a proper alley. Turin Champion travelled three back along the rails, peeled two-to-three deep upon straightening and ran on steadily to inject value into the tierce. Smart Forward settled outside Turin Champion in the run, rounded the final bend five deep and made some headway to grab a First-4 spot in an encouraging debut.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (282)-HO CHUNG HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

BEAUTY JOURNEY began only fairly and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of AFFLUENCE OF RAIN which shifted in.

GOLD EDITION and SMART FORWARD bumped at the start, resulting in SMART FORWARD shifting out across the running of SMART PLANET which was inconvenienced.

After the 1100 Metres, SKY FAR became unbalanced.

U Rispoli (PRETTY ONE) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 900 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of SIR JOHN, causing that horse to be checked.

U Rispoli was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 16 January 2014 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, 5 January 2014.

Near the 850 Metres, BEAUTY JOURNEY became unbalanced.

At the 700 Metres, BEAUTY JOURNEY was checked when reluctant to maintain its position inside SMART PLANET which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of MASTER SOMMELIER.

When BEAUTY JOURNEY was checked, that horse shifted out, resulting in GLAMOROUS RYDER being hampered.

Near the 650 Metres, SMART FORWARD raced tight between SIR JOHN and TURIN CHAMPION which got its head on the side and lay out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SKY FAR.

For some distance after this, TURIN CHAMPION continued to be awkwardly placed close to the heels of SKY FAR.

SKY FAR had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and after the 200 Metres shifted out abruptly when attempting to be positioned to take advantage of a run between PRETTY ONE and GOLD EDITION.

After this, SKY FAR continued to lay out and proved difficult to ride.

A veterinary inspection of BEAUTY JOURNEY and MASTER SOMMELIER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MASTER SOMMELIER, AFFLUENCE OF RAIN and PRETTY ONE were sent for sampling.
