Recap by phillip woo

Ambitious Treasure had put the writing on the wall last time out at Sha Tin and scored a decisive win with a returned to his preferred Valley course here. He settled fourth and one off the rails, rounded the final bend four deep and took control 200m out. Fiery Patrol made his run one off in midfield, was asked to make ground at the 500m, circled the final bend with three wider out and finished well to grab second 100m out. Favourite Good Times Roll enjoyed the gun run, cornered four deep and stayed on reasonably well to enter the placings 50m out. Man And Ming settled behind midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend widest out and ran on steadily to edge Casa Junior for a First-4 spot. Casa Junior made his run one off in second after leading early on, reclaimed the front 300m out and gradually gave way over the final 100m. All My Kingdoms easily cleared before the first bend to lead from a wide gate, cornered narrowly on top after setting slow fractions and didn't have much left to offer passing the 250m. Young Happy bided his time fourth from the rear along the rails and made only a mild bid after straightening one off the fence. Master Gunner made only a mild bid from the back following a sluggish break, despite the drop in grade. Specked late, Dynamic Cross caused City Delight to check badly approaching the first bend.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (344)-LAMBETH HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

MASTER GUNNER was slow to begin.

AMBITIOUS TREASURE shifted out at the start, resulting in GOLDMEN Y Y being crowded for room out onto the hindquarters of CASA JUNIOR which became unbalanced.

Shortly after the start, YOUNG HAPPY was crowded for room inside DYNAMIC CROSS which got its head on the side and shifted in away from GOOD TIMES ROLL.

In this incident, YOUNG HAPPY bumped CITY DELIGHT, resulting in that horse becoming unbalanced.

From a wide barrier, MARVEL PLUS was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

H W Lai (AMBITIOUS TREASURE) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that after the 1400 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of DYNAMIC CROSS, causing that horse to be taken in onto CITY DELIGHT which was severely checked and lost the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

When CITY DELIGHT was severely checked, YOUNG HAPPY, which was following, was checked in consequence and FIERY PATROL was hampered.

H W Lai was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 13 February 2014 on which day he may resume race riding (4 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 26 January 2014.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into consideration the high degree of carelessness exhibited by Jockey Lai in this incident and the severity of the interference suffered by CITY DELIGHT.

In the middle stages, ALL MY KINGDOMS got its head on the side and lay out.

Near the 250 Metres, ALL MY KINGDOMS and CASA JUNIOR raced tight as CASA JUNIOR got its head on the side and shifted in away from AMBITIOUS TREASURE.

GOOD TIMES ROLL, AMBITIOUS TREASURE and FIERY PATROL were sent for sampling.
