Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite, Redwood Baby was in no hurry travelling second from the rear, straightened three deep and let down willingly to run down Fat Choy Hong Kong close to home for a second win from five starts with a gear change to a hood. Fat Choy Hong Kong was caught three deep in fifth without cover from a wide gate, rolled to third at the 1,000m, swung the final bend five deep, hit the lead 200m out and just found one better on the day. He's ready to win from a proper gate at the Valley. Real Generous made his run behind midfield along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and ran on well to just out-bob Royal Partner for third. Royal Partner was handy along the rails, rounded the final bend four deep and finished up well to just miss a placing. Smart Ball caused Dashing Super to check at the 1,050m when crossed to the lead, cornered near two lengths on top and was yielding ground 100m out. Trump was ridden cold near the back from a wide gate, swung the final bend widest out and was doing his best work late when the race was all but over. Great Sky was one-paced over the final 150m. Specked late, Dashing Super had to take evasive action when crossed for the front at the 1,050m, cornered three deep in third and was struggling 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (543)-WYNDHAM HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 3 - 1650Metres

From wide barriers, BANKSTERS BONUS and TRUMP were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Apprentice K C Ng (SMALL BALL) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 1100 Metres he failed to take sufficient measures to prevent his mount from shifting in when not clear of DASHING SUPER, causing that horse to be crowded for room, become unbalanced and lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

Apprentice Ng was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 5 May 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 Monday, 21 April 2014.

Near the 1150 Metres, GREAT SKY got its head up after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of SMART BALL.

After the 1000 Metres, FLYING CHAPARRAL was left racing wide and without cover.

Over the concluding stages, ROYAL PARTNER was inconvenienced when racing in restricted room between SMART BALL and FAT CHOY HONG KONG which shifted in slightly under pressure.

Also over the concluding stages, FLYING CHAPARRAL was steadied when awkwardly placed between GREAT SKY and TRUMP.

A veterinary inspection of BANKSTERS BONUS immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, BANKSTERS BONUS will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of DASHING SUPER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BEST TANGO, REDWOOD BABY and FAT CHOY HONG KONG were sent for sampling.
