Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite Approve drove to the front at the 1,200m from a wide gate, came to the straight a length on top, was headed at the 250m by Trump and fought back gamely underneath that one to reclaim victory 100m out. Ho In One settled second from the rear, swung the final bend widest out and finished up willingly to nail Trump in the final stride for the Quinella spot. Trump settled effectively one-out, one-back, worked to the lead four deep at the 250m and peaked on his run 100m out. Medallist made his run at the tail from a wide gate, straightened three deep and ran on steadily to shade Jun Gong for fourth and inject value into the Quartet. Jun Gong made his run fourth from the rear and one off the rails, angled into the clear with two wider out at the 300m and was doing some nice work late. Early favourite Classic Jewellery settled midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend six deep, copped a sharp bump between runners at the 250m and ran on steadily thereafter to just finish out of the exotics. Majestic Anthem was posted three deep outside Classic Jewellery in the run, swung the final bend three deep, drifted onto Classic Jewellery at the 250m and kept on evenly when balancing up. Mr Medici was badly checked at the 250m and never got into the act.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (398)-WAN CHAI GAP HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

MR MEDICI was slow to begin.

Shortly after the stat, ALWAYS SOMETHING was crowded for room between FAIRY EAGLE which shifted in and CLASSIC JEWELLERY which was taken out by TRUMP.

HO IN ONE and MEDALLIST were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Near the 900 Metres, TRUMP shifted out away from the heels of FAIRY EAGLE when proving difficult to settle.

Near the 500 Metres, FLEET COMMAND was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FUN TAPESTRY.

Rounding the Home Turn, CLASSIC JEWELLERY and MAJESTIC ANTHEM bumped as CLASSIC JEWELLERY shifted out from behind FAIRY EAGLE after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse which commenced to give ground abruptly.

Shortly after entering the Straight, HO IN ONE became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by ALWAYS SOMETHING.

M Demuro (MAJESTIC ANTHEM) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that after the 300 Metres he failed to take corrective measures sooner than he did to prevent his mount from shifting in, resulting in MAJESTIC ANTHEM bumping CLASSIC JEWELLERY, causing CLASSIC JEWELLERY to be taken across the rightful running of MR MEDICI which was checked.

M Demuro was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Sunday, 2 March 2014 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin on Sunday, 23 February 2014.

In assessing the appropriate penalty, the Stewards took into consideration that this was the first occasion that Jockey Demuro had been charged with careless riding in Hong Kong during his current period of licensing, that MAJESTIC ANTHEM shifted ground quickly and the fact that he did attempt to take corrective measures to relieve the tightening to runners to his inside albeit belatedly.

Throughout the race, MAJESTIC ANTHEM travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that FLEET COMMAND had bled from both nostrils.

A veterinary inspection of MR MEDICI and MAJESTIC ANTHEM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

APPROVE and HO IN ONE were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

At the Sha Tin racemeeting on 26 January 2014, HELENE FUN STAR was required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test before being permitted to race again.

HELENE FUN STAR undertook its required stalls test on Monday, 10 February 2014 without Sheepskin Cheek Pieces and accordingly is required to race without that gear.

Trainer A S Cruz was fined the sum of $2,000 for failing to submit a gear change removing the Sheepskin Cheek Pieces from HELENE FUN STAR by the required time.

HELENE FUN STAR is entered to race at the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 16 February 2014.
