Recap by phillip woo

Owners' Glory settled behind midfield and one off the rails, shifted off heels four deep at the 200m and responded nicely to get up in the shadows of the post for the win. Mazandaran settled one-out, one-back, briefly hit the front three deep 50m out and was nipped on the wire. Young Talent was shuffled back by the tiring Heavenisaracehorse following a handy run along the rails to have only three behind him coming to the final bend, straightened four deep and finished willingly to make it a blanket finish on the wire. He'll be winning a race soon over this Valley trip. Southern Springs rushed forward from a wide gate to lead 1,300m out, opened up a length on Good Thinker at the 300m and was swamped late for a placing. Kokoda travelled keenly one off in midfield, swung the final bend with three wider out and ran on steadily without menacing. One Of A Kind settled third from the rear after a sluggish break, shuffled back to have only one beaten while straightening five deep and was doing his best work late when the race was all but over. Elegance Klammer made good progress with one wider out in the drive after travelling second from the rear from the widest gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (097)-RUBY HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Metres

ONE OF A KIND began awkwardly and lost ground.

On jumping, KOKODA shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of MAZANDARAN.

OWNERS' GLORY shifted in at the start and bumped PANTHER RUN which in turn shifted in and bumped YOU KNOW I WIN which became unbalanced.

SOUTHERN SPRINGS and SPICY SIAM made heavy contact on jumping.

From the outside barrier, ELEGANCE KLAMMER was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1600 Metres, OWNERS' GLORY was steadied away from the heels of SOUTHERN SPRINGS (T H So) which shifted in when not properly clear.

T H So was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

T H So pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the winning post on the first occasion he failed to take sufficient measures to prevent SOUTHERN SPRINGS from shifting in, resulting in MAZANDARAN being taken in across the rightful running of KOKODA which was checked.

T H So was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 13 November 2014 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 29 October 2014.

Apprentice C Y Lui (GOOD THINKER) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that for some distance after the 850 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of MAZANDARAN, resulting in that horse being unnecessarily crowded for room and losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled approaching the 700 Metres.

Apprentice Lui was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 1 December 2014 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 19 November 2014.

Passing the 800 Metres, KOKODA got its head up on a number of occasions when proving difficult to settle.

OWNERS' GLORY, which was following KOKODA, shifted in abruptly away from the heels of that horse, resulting in ONE OF A KIND being badly crowded for room.

PANTHER RUN, which was following OWNERS' GLORY, was hampered in consequence.

For some distance after this, KOKODA continued to prove difficult to settle and making the turn near the 550 Metres got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of SPICY SIAM.

Prior to the 800 Metres, YOU KNOW I WIN was left racing wide and without cover.

For some distance prior to the 400 Metres, YOUNG TALENT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HEAVENISARACEHORSE.

Passing the 300 Metres, KOKODA was shifted out away from the heels of YOU KNOW I WIN which shifted marginally.

Near the 150 Metres, KOKODA shifted in, resulting in its rider having to stop riding and straighten his mount.

A veterinary inspection of YOU KNOW I WIN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

KOKODA, OWNERS' GLORY and MAZANDARAN were sent for sampling.
