Recap by phillip woo

Pearl Win enjoyed the box-seat run, worked to a narrow lead at the 200m, was headed 150m out by Key Witness and fought back in the shadows of the post to land a betting plunge. Early favourite Key Witness was posted without cover three-to-four deep in midfield from a wide gate, rounded the final bend six deep, hit the front at the 150m and lost it late when wandering about inside the final 100m. It was a big run in defeat and he remains one to follow. Victorius settled behind midfield and one off the rails, straightened three deep and was finishing well to grab a placing. Smart Forward travelled second and one off the rails, briefly found the front four deep at the 300m and grudgingly gave way late. St Yazin kept on reasonably well after handy run one off the rails in his first go over the 1,200m at Sha Tin. Speedygonzalez was pulling hard three deep around midfield, was posted without cover four deep at the 800m and made some ground without menacing in the straight drive with one wider out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (748)-POK FU LAM COUNTRY PARK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

Whilst in the saddling stalls, SPEEDYGONZALEZ had its left front plate refitted.

SPEEDYGONZALEZ was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

On arrival at the Start, it was noted that HAPPY JOURNEY had lost its left hind plate.

After being replated behind the barriers, HAPPY JOURNEY was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

After being loaded, HAPPY JOURNEY became fractious and reared.

Before being allowed to race again, HAPPY JOURNEY will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

WINDICATOR STAR was slow to begin and from a wide barrier was taken across behind runners in the early stages.

Shortly after the start, SMART FORWARD and SPEEDYGONZALEZ bumped on a number of occasions.

Also shortly after the start, KIROV lost its right hind plate.

From wide barriers, ROYAL PARTNER, CONFUCIUS SPIRIT and KIROV were shifted across behind runners shortly after the start.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, FAT CHOY HONG KONG failed to muster speed and shortly after the start was taken back to a position with cover.

Passing the 1100 Metres, SPEEDYGONZALEZ was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of SMART FORWARD.

After this, SPEEDYGONZALEZ got its head up on a number of occasions when proving difficult to settle for some distance.

After the 1000 Metres, HAPPY JOURNEY lost its left hind plate.

The Stewards inquired into the reason for O Doleuze being dislodged from FABULOUS NOVEMBER approaching the 800 Metres.

After taking evidence from O Doleuze and K Teetan (ALL THE BEST) and after viewing the videos, the Stewards found that at about the 850 Metres ALL THE BEST became unbalanced, lost ground and shifted out abruptly after jumping shadows on the track.

FABULOUS NOVEMBER, which was following, was severely checked in consequence, struck the heels of ALL THE BEST and blundered badly, resulting in O Doleuze being dislodged.

The Stewards ruled that prior to being permitted to race again, ALL THE BEST must satisfactorily undergo a series of official barrier trials around a bend.

This mater will be brought to the attention of Mr D Cruz, the trainer of ALL THE BEST, who was not in Hong Kong today.

After this incident, ALL THE BEST travelled wide and without cover.

Approaching the 800 Metres, PEARL WIN momentarily raced tight inside SMART FORTUNE which got its head on the side and shifted in away from ALL THE BEST.

After the 800 Metres, CONFUCIUS SPIRIT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SPEEDYGONZALEZ which continued to prove difficult to settle.

After the 700 Metres, SPEEDYGONZALEZ, which was continuing to prove difficult to settle, was shifted out away from the heels of KEY WITNESS and after this travelled wide and without cover.

Near the 350 Metres, ST YAZIN was shifted to the inside of ALL THE BEST to obtain clear running.

Passing the 200 Metres, ALL THE BEST got its head on the side and shifted in, causing ST YAZIN to be inconvenienced.

After the 100 Metres, KEY WITNESS got its head on the side and shifted in under pressure, resulting in its rider, N Callan, having to stop riding and straighten his mount near the 50 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of FABULOUS NOVEMBER and ALL THE BEST immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

FABULOUS NOVEMBER, PEARL WIN and KEY WITNESS were sent for sampling.
