Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Holmes Legend was able to get in one off fore of midfield, fanned into the clear with one wider out and finished nicely to overhaul a determined Fat Choy Hong Kong 50m out for back-to-back wins at the Valley. Well-fancied Fat Choy Hong Kong rolled forward from a wide gate to eventually claim the lead at the 1,200m, cornered four deep a length on top and grudgingly gave way late. Trump was posted three deep without cover in fifth, strolled forward to sit outside the leader at the 600m, rounded the final bend with three wider out and just held on for a placing when peaking on his run 100m out. Plunged late, Noble Boy made his run second from the rear near the inside, angled into the clear rounding the final bend five-to-six deep and was hitting the line with purpose to make it close for a tierce spot. Winnie's Horse settled midfield and three deep with some cover, swung the final bend with two wider out and made some gains late. Wrath Of Fire was unhurried third from the rear and one-to-two off the rails, peeled widest at the head of the straight and ran on without menacing. Hong Kong Dancer travelled on the back of the leader in fourth after handing up the early lead, straightened four deep and was giving ground 150m out. Griffindor made his run behind midfield along the rails after a sluggish break, came two off upon straightening and failed to pick up under the pump.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (471)-SHAU KEI WAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

GRIFFINDOR became fractious as the start was effected and lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently was slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, NOBLE BOY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, ELEGANCE KLAMMER was shifted out to relieve tightening to GRIFFINDOR and in doing so was awkwardly placed close to the heels of IMPERIAL CONCORDE.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, HOLMES LEGEND was awkwardly placed inside the heels of TRUMP which shifted in before being shifted out to relieve the tightening.

TRUMP then travelled wide and without cover until near the 600 Metres.

Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, HONG KONG DANCER got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FAT CHOY HONG KONG.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, HONG KONG DANCER shifted in of its own accord and made contact with the running rail.

Passing the 50 Metres, WRATH OF FIRE was awkwardly placed outside the heels of WINNIE'S HORSE.

Over the concluding stages, EMPEROR CLAUDIUS got its head on the side and hung in.

A veterinary inspection of GRIFFINDOR and HONG KONG DANCER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HOLMES LEGEND and FAT CHOY HONG KONG were sent for sampling.

9 March 2014 Sha Tin Racemeeting - Race 10 (463) As advised in the incident report on Sunday, 9 March 2014, the Stewards tonight interviewed O Doleuze regarding his riding of NICE FOLKS in the early stages.

O Doleuze stated that, from barrier 3, he had been asked to ride the horse more positively than is the case when it is drawn wide.

He said in accordance with his instructions he rode NICE FOLKS along in the early stages and anticipated that PERFECT CHEERS might be shifted in to race behind BEAUTY LEAD on the rail which would have provided him the opportunity to obtain a position one horse off the fence with cover.

He said that PERFECT CHEERS remained racing outside BEAUTY LEAD and after he attempted to place some pressure on PERFECT CHEERS in an endeavour to have it shift in behind that horse, NICE FOLKS was left racing in a three wide position when PERFECT CHEERS maintained its position.

He added after the 1200 Metres NICE FOLKS was left racing without cover and continued to do so for the remainder of the race.

Trainer C W Chang confirmed the instructions given to Jockey Doleuze and stated that he asked for the horse to be ridden in a more forward position in this race due to the rail being positioned in the C course together with the horse's favourable gate.

O Doleuze was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must, wherever possible, and particularly from inside draws, ride his mounts to ensure that they do not cover unnecessary ground.
