Recap by phillip woo

Goldland Dancer was confidently ridden worse than midfield and two off the rails with cover, eased out coming to the final bend with two wider out and let down willingly to win going away 60m out under a light weight to notch win number three from six outings on this surface. Smiling Watch was parked fourth on the back of a good pace, advanced to the front four deep at the 300m and found one too good in the end. Riyadh was ridden cold from a wide alley and finished willingly to just miss the Quinella spot at long odds. He was suited by the tempo. Ho In One settled midfield along the paint, worked to second three deep at the 250m and peaked on his run 100m out. Ole Ole settled second from the rear and got going late without menacing. Early favourite Alpinefield was handy in the run and one off the rails, swung the final bend with three wider out and was struggling at the 150m. Late-plunged favourite Flying Unicorn was the meat in the sandwich vying for the lead through slick fractions with Racing Hero and None Other posted his outside and was giving way at the 200m. Vanilla made his run third from the rear and only got by well beaten rivals. Racing Hero held the fence and was gone at the 250m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (015)-DEEP WATER BAY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

VANILLA was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, OLE OLE and RIYADH were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 600 Metres, GOLDLAND DANCER was shifted out away from the heels of ALPINEFIELD which was shifted out away from the heels of NONE OTHER.

Approaching the 400 Metres, VANILLA was hampered when shifted in away from the heels of NONE OTHER which was giving ground.

In the early part of the Straight, VANILLA got its head on the side, hung in and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BACKBENCH BLUES.

The performance of NONE OTHER, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, NONE OTHER will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

When questioned regarding his riding of NONE OTHER, Apprentice K C Ng stated that he had been asked to ride NONE OTHER in a forward position and lead if possible.

He said in accordance with his instructions he rode his mount vigorously out of the barriers in an endeavour to be as forward as possible.

He said RACING HERO, which was drawn inside NONE OTHER, showed more early speed than his mount and he attempted to ride NONE OTHER to obtain a position outside that horse.

He said passing the winning post on the first occasion FLYING UNICORN, which was racing to the inside of NONE OTHER, was vigorously ridden to improve its position and therefore passing the 1400 Metres NONE OTHER was left racing in a position three wide and without cover.

He said he felt the tempo of the race in the early stages was good.

He added after allowing NONE OTHER to be balanced rounding the turn near the 1100 Metres, he had a look to his inside to ascertain whether it would be possible to shift NONE OTHER in behind FLYING UNICORN to obtain cover behind that horse.

He said however that SMILING WATCH was positioned directly behind FLYING UNICORN and for this reason he was not able to obtain cover behind FLYING UNICORN.

He said rather than remain racing three wide and without cover, he therefore elected to ride his mount forward to see whether he would be able to cross FLYING UNICORN.

He said however that FLYING UNICORN maintained its position between RACING HERO and NONE OTHER and as such he was not able to cross that horse.

He added whilst he was aware that the tempo of the race was quick at that time, he felt that that was a better option rather than remaining in a three wide position without cover.

He said in hindsight he considered that it would have been better had he remained racing outside FLYING UNICORN rather than continuing on in an endeavour to clear that runner.

Mr A S Cruz, the trainer of NONE OTHER and allocated trainer of Apprentice Ng, confirmed that he had asked Apprentice Ng to ride the horse positively in tonight??s race.

Apprentice Ng was advised that, in the opinion of the Stewards, he had erred in attempting to press forward on NONE OTHER after the 1100 Metres given the tempo of the race.

Apprentice Ng was reprimanded and advised that whilst he is still an apprentice jockey, he is a senior apprentice and as such he would be expected to ride his mounts with sufficient judgement so as to give them every opportunity to finish off their races.

Z Purton (RACING HERO) pleaded guilty to a charge of misconduct under Rule 155(5) in that in the vicinity of the Weighing Room following the race, he directed an inappropriate comment to Stipendiary Steward E C Kwok.

Having regard to Jockey Purton??s prior record of charges under this Rule, the Stewards were of the opinion that, given the circumstances, the appropriate penalty was for him to be fined the sum of $25,000.

A veterinary inspection of RACING HERO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of RACING HERO, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, RACING HERO will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of FLYING UNICORN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
