Recap by phillip woo

Late-fancied favourite Royal Partner settled one-out, one-back, stayed near the inside upon straightening, hit the front 100m out and kept on well for a second win from his past five starts. Winning Mascot travelled fore of midfield and one off the fence, launched his attack when pulling out at the 600m, cornered five deep and stayed on gamely to just edge Flying Unicorn for second. Flying Unicorn stalked the sedate pace of Grimmy, cornered four deep and kept grinding away to make it interesting at the finish. Grimmy crawled on the lead, was under siege entering the straight and kept on reasonably well to inject value into the Quartet. Early favourite Jazzy Feeling settled midfield along the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and ran on steadily to just finish out of the placings. Masquerader was able to slot in with cover behind midfield and one off the rails from an outside alley, swung the final bend with one wider out and kept on all right without threatening. Plunged late, Amber Dragon enjoyed a soft run along the rails in fourth, stayed to the fence upon straightening and came up empty over the last 150m in another disturbingly weak effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (563)-WYLIE PATH HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

As the start was effected, EMPEROR CLAUDIUS lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently began only fairly.

EMPEROR CLAUDIUS was then shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

WINNING MASCOT was crowded for room at the start between AMBER DRAGON which shifted out slightly and FLYING UNICORN which shifted in.

From the outside barrier, RED DANCER was taken across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, JAZZY FEELING was awkwardly placed close to the heels of AMBER DRAGON.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, ROYAL PARTNER got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING UNICORN.

Over the concluding stages, RED DANCER was awkwardly placed between EMPEROR CLAUDIUS and ROCK THE TREE.

Close to the finishing line, GRIMMY and FLYING UNICORN raced tight due to FLYING UNICORN shifting in slightly under pressure.

In the Straight, EMPEROR CLAUDIUS lay in and proved difficult to ride.

A veterinary inspection of RED DANCER and AMBER DRAGON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ROYAL PARTNER and WINNING MASCOT were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

Race 3 (547) - 13 April 2014 Sha Tin Racemeeting The Stewards tonight interviewed Mr D E Ferraris, the trainer of PALEPALE, regarding the manner in which the horse was ridden in this race.

Mr Ferraris stated that as he was not in Hong Kong, he provided the instructions to H W Lai through his assistant trainer, Mr K W Lee.

He said he intended for the horse to be ridden in about a midfield position or slightly worse due to the wide barrier.

He said he did not feel that PALEPALE would be able to finish off the race were it to be ridden aggressively in the early stages to obtain a forward position as it had experienced internal bleeding issues in the past.

He added he did not anticipate that the horse would get back as far as it did in this race, however, he was satisfied with the manner in which it finished off the race which gave him the indication that it can be ridden from off the speed if circumstances warrant.

Mr Ferraris was advised that his explanation would be noted.
