Recap by phillip woo

Nordic One went straight to the front from gate eight, cornered nearly two lengths on top and kept finding to land a betting move. Hong Kong Dancer enjoyed a box-seat run, came one off upon straightening and kept on well to secure second 100m out. Sunny Fay was handy along the rails in fifth, swung the final bend four deep and got up 30m out for a placing. Specked late, King Derby settled fourth from the rear and two off the rails with cover, swung the final bend widest out and finished up reasonably well to fill a Quartet spot. Plunged late to start favourite, Silly Buddies jump alertly from a wide gate to sit one off in second, straightened three deep and yielded ground over the final 150m. Early favourite All Win Boy settled behind midfield along the fence, straightened four deep with a clear path, but failed to respond under the whip in a disappointing effort. Super Abundante travelled one-out and one-back, swung the final bend with three wider out and gave ground 150m out when failing to respond under the whip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (646)-ARC DE TRIOMPHE CHAMPIONSHIPS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

ALL WIN BOY shifted out at the start and bumped BEAUTY JOURNEY, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

After being bumped by SUPER ABUNDANTE shortly after the start, HONG KONG DANCER got its head on the side and shifted in, resulting in ALL FRIENDS being crowded for room between that horse and SUNNY FAY.

From a wide barrier, KING DERBY was taken across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the first turn near the 1000 Metres, UNIVERSAL UNION got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of BEAUTY JOURNEY.

Near the 450 Metres, SUPER ABUNDANTE lay in and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SILLY BUDDIES.

Over the concluding stages, SILLY BUDDIES was awkwardly placed outside HONG KONG DANCER (K C Leung) which shifted out.

K C Leung was advised to exercise more care.

Because of this, SILLY BUDDIES was not able to be properly tested right to the finishing line.

When questioned, K Teetan stated that from a wide barrier he had been asked to shift UNIVERSAL UNION, which was having its first race start in Hong Kong, across behind runners and obtain a position close to the rail so that it did not cover unnecessary ground.

He said in accordance with his instructions, he immediately shifted UNIVERSAL UNION across behind runners and making the turn near the 1000 Metres he anticipated that BEAUTY JOURNEY may shift across to race on the rail which would allow UNIVERSAL UNION the opportunity to race to that horse's outside.

He said however that BEAUTY JOURNEY took some time to shift across to the rail which allowed CHEERS JOY the opportunity to shift in and for this reason he was obliged to race behind both those horses at the rear of the field.

He added he commenced to ride his mount along hands and heels after the 600 Metres to ensure that UNIVERSAL UNION did not get too far out of its ground.

He said at the entrance to the Straight he balanced up UNIVERSAL UNION and commenced to ride it out, however, it got its head up and shifted some ground.

He said he rode UNIVERSAL UNION out vigorously hands and heels and passing the 200 Metres rode with the whip in the backhand manner as the horse was finishing off the race strongly.

K Teetan was advised that his comments would be reported, however, he was told to ensure that he tests his mounts with sufficient vigour so that his riding is not open to query.

A veterinary inspection of ALL WIN BOY, SUPER ABUNDANTE and CHEERS JOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SILLY BUDDIES, NORDIC ONE and HONG KONG DANCER were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

After the running of Race 1, the track classification was officially changed from "Good to Yielding" to "Good".

This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective.

As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 1 being run on a track rated "Good".
