Recap by phillip woo

Cultural City was deep on the course fourth from the rear, circled the field four deep at the 1,000m to sit wide in third at the 600m, shot to the front 300m out and kept up a good gallop for a first win at his 22 nd outing. Firming late, Expedite ran on nicely one off the rails to grab second 100m out following a handy run from a good gate. Oyster strolled forward from the widest gate to sit outside the leader Record Again at the 1,300m and kept on gamely under the pump to easily hold on for a placing despite the hard run. Favourite Verdane was prominent in the run and three deep with cover, rallied six wide upon straightening and kept plugging to fill a First-4 spot. Record Again held the lead along the rails despite Oyster pulling up outside him at the 1,300m, cornered narrowly on top and was stopping at the 150m. Skip Court settled effectively one-out, one-back, straightened five deep and kept on one-paced when popped the question. Smart Planet was shuffled back to a position third from the rear at the 1,000m and only stayed on passed well beaten rivals down the far outside.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (071)-TIU YUE YUNG HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Metres

HOXO and SMART PLANET began awkwardly.

From a wide barrier, HOLY MAC was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Also from a wide barrier, SPICY SIAM was slow to begin and then was shifted across behind runners.

H W Lai (INDIGO WAY) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1500 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of SMART PLANET, causing that horse to be taken in onto HOXO, resulting in HOXO being badly crowded for room and losing ground.

H W Lai was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 10 November 2014 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 26 October 2014.

For some distance after this, HOXO was then ridden along by its rider, K Teetan, to re-establish its position inside SMART PLANET.

This resulted in HOXO improving into very tight running inside SMART PLANET which continued to race tight inside INDIGO WAY which had improved its position to be racing tight inside the heels of KING OF PATCH.

Near the 1300 Metres, SMART PLANET was checked and lost ground when crowded for room between INDIGO WAY and HOXO which got its head on the side and shifted out when racing tight inside SMART PLANET.

K Teetan was advised that whilst there was some influence to this incident from horses to the outside of SMART PLANET and whilst the initial pressure to HOXO had not been as a result of his own doing, nonetheless he should be circumspect when continuing to endeavour to establish running where there is doubtful or insufficient room.

After the 1300 Metres, VERY WELL was left racing wide and without cover.

For some distance after the 1200 Metres, HOXO got its head up on a number of occasions when awkwardly placed close to the heels of EXPEDITE.

Near the 900 Metres, CULTURAL CITY was left racing wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of HOXO immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

VERDANE, CULTURAL CITY and EXPEDITE were sent for sampling.
