Recap by phillip woo

King Derby settled nicely fourth from the rear along the rails, shifted four deep at the 250m and quickened nicely to take control 100m out for the win. Apollo Cavalier stayed on well after sitting outside the leader Ambitious King in the run to hold down the Quinella spot. Cheetah Boy travelled deep on the course third from the rear, swung the final bend very wide and closed off willingly to inject value into the tierce. Clever Beaver found his second wind after looking beaten at the 350m following a deep run without cover on the speed to snare a First-4 spot. Kirov was patiently ridden second form the rear and was making headway late to just miss a spot in the First-4. He's improving with racing and will be better suited over a longer trip. Favourite Ambitious King was under a good hold coming to the final bend a length on top and was stopping 100m out. London Walk was handy in the run and one off the rails, stayed near the inside upon straightening and only held his ground. Well-punted late, Comeback Kid travelled midfield and one off the rails, was under the pump coming to the final bend and struggling 300m out. He was certainly in need of the outing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (018)-CHUNG HOM KOK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

SCIMITAR was withdrawn on 15.9.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetence).

Before being allowed to race again, SCIMITAR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

The Stewards and the Department of Veterinary Regulation were this morning informed by staff allocated to Trainer A S Cruz that the pre-race urine sample meant to be taken from CLEVER BEAVER (S352) had in fact been taken from MAJESTIC ANTHEM (P238).

A blood sample was later taken from CLEVER BEAVER which was subsequently subject to routine pre-race screening.

Mr Cruz was advised that an inquiry into this matter had been adjourned to allow a preliminary investigation into the circumstances of this matter.

The inquiry was adjourned until a date and time to be fixed.

LONDON WALK began only fairly.

On jumping COMEBACK KID was crowded for room between KING DERBY and APOLLO CAVALIER which was taken in by GETAWAY GUY which shifted in.

CLEVER BEAVER, which was leaning on the inside of its stall, began awkwardly and shortly after the start became unbalanced when bumped by LAUGH OUT LOUD.

Shortly after the start, KIROV lost ground when crowded for room between KING DERBY and AMBITIOUS KING which shifted out.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, CHEETAH BOY failed to muster speed.

CHEETAH BOY shifted out under pressure in the early part of the Straight.

Passing the 300 Metres, KIROV was shifted to the outside of LONDON WALK when disappointed for running inside that horse which shifted in.

Throughout the race, CLEVER BEAVER travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding his riding of KIROV in the Home Straight, C Y Ho stated that as his mount was obliged to race at the rear of the field due to being crowded for room at the start, he was subjected to a significant amount of kickback which adversely affected his vision, particularly in the middle and latter stages of the race.

He said he was able to establish, shortly after entering the Straight, that there was a run directly in front of KIROV, however, he was also aware that a horse was shifting in towards the rail and therefore he elected to shift to that horse??s outside.

He said near the 150 Metres he wiped the visor he was using in an attempt to clear his vision, however, he was not able to do so to the degree where he was able to fully establish where his mount was in relation to other horses in the race.

He added nonetheless he rode KIROV out as best as he was able under the circumstances, however, his riding of the horse was impacted upon by a lack of vision.

Having viewed the videos, the Stewards accepted that, particularly in the early part of the Straight, there was a significant amount of kickback apparent on Jockey Ho??s visor and that this had a bearing over the manner in which he was able to ride the horse.

However, the Stewards formed the view that after the 100 Metres he was in a position to ride KIROV more vigorously than he had given that he had partially cleared the kickback from his visor.

C Y Ho was advised that his riding out of KIROV over the latter stages of the race had come under notice and he was further advised that in future he must avail himself of all necessary measures to ensure that he is able to properly test his mounts.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of AMBITIOUS KING, J Moreira stated that although his mount was able to obtain the lead without having to be made use of in the early stages, AMBITIOUS KING travelled too keenly throughout the race and because of this was not able to finish off ifs race.

A veterinary inspection of AMBITIOUS KING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of COMEBACK KID immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

AMBITIOUS KING, KING DERBY and APOLLO CAVALIER were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

After the running of Race 1, the track classification was officially changed from "Wet Slow" to "Wet Fast".

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 "Wet Fast".
