Recap by phillip woo

Even money favourite, Beauty Only saved ground in midfield from gate one, shifted out five-to-six deep at the 400m and wore down Flame Hero in the shadows of the post to remain unbeaten in two outings. He remains one to following a will appreciate a longer trip as well. Flame Hero pushed forward from a wide gate to settle second behind the good pace of Smiling Watch, assumed the front four deep at the 350m and went down in a thriller with the weight swing of eight pounds the difference in the end. It was a terrific run in defeat. Tableaux was ridden quietly at the rear after jumping in the air from a wide gate, swung the final bend furthest out and finished well to nail What You Dream for third despite a return to Class Two. He appears to have acclimatized with a season under his belt and remains one to keep safe when next stepping out. What Your Dream travelled near the back, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished up reasonably well despite a rise in class. Little Men ran on well three deep after travelling fourth from the tail of the field. Flying Elite kept on all right along the rails following a prominent run. Gun Pit never fired after a deep run without cover.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (149)-CYBER COLORS HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1600Metres

JOLLY VICTOR was withdrawn on 8.11.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (fever) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter PO CHING TREASURE (K Teetan).

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

Whilst in the saddling stalls, PO CHING TREASURE had its left front plate refitted.

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

PO CHING TREASURE and LITTLE MEN were slow to begin.

BEAUTY ONLY began awkwardly.

TABLEAUX was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Rounding the Home Turn, BEAUTY ONLY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING ELITE.

FLAME HERO lost its right hind plate near the 400 Metres.

At the 400 Metres, PRESIDENT LINCOLN lost ground when crowded for room between GUN PIT and BEAUTY ONLY (N Callan) which, when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLAME HERO, was obliged to shift out away from the heels of that horse which shifted ground of its own accord after initially being taken out by SMILING WATCH.

As the Stewards were of the opinion that there were some circumstances with this incident, no further action was taken, however, N Callan was advised to ensure that, wherever possible, he exercises due care when shifting ground.

Near the 350 Metres, PRESIDENT LINCOLN was steadied away from the heels of GUN PIT which shifted in.

Throughout the race, GUN PIT and DR GOOD HABIT travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding his riding of SMILING WATCH, Apprentice K C Ng stated that it was agreed between himself and Trainer K L Man that SMILING WATCH should be ridden in a forward position from barrier 13 as the horse was carrying a light weight and there was only a limited number of horses in the field that were expected to take up forward positions.

He said it as felt that SMILING WATCH would be able to overcome its wide barrier and be able to dictate the terms of the race.

He said after crossing into the lead near the 1300 Metres, he immediately attempted to steady the tempo on SMILING WATCH, however, the horse would not relax and, despite his attempts, was running at a faster tempo than he had hoped.

He added he was reluctant to restrain his mount any further as he did not want it to become unbalanced, nonetheless he believed that he had made a reasonable effort to steady the tempo on SMILING WATCH so that it could finish off the race.

Apprentice Ng was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he must ride his mounts with sufficient judgement to ensure that, wherever possible, they are able to finish off their races.

A veterinary inspection of GUN PIT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BEAUTY ONLY and FLAME HERO were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

Adjourned Inquiry - 2 November 2014 Sha Tin Racemeeting - Race 10 (139) The Stewards today concluded their inquiry into the reason for COMEBACK KID (A Suborics) falling near the 650 Metres.

Evidence was taken from A Suborics, C Reith (THE SYLPH), C K Tong (MODERN TSAR) and K C Leung (ARCHIPPUS).

The Stewards found that making the turn passing the 900 Metres THE SYLPH, which was having its first race start in Hong Kong, got it head up and shifted out away from the heels of HO LEE HORSE when proving difficult to settle.

This resulted in THE SYLPH bumping COMEBACK KID, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

THE SYLPH then continued to prove very difficult to settle and improved into tight running between HO LEE HORSE and COMEBACK KID.

It was also established that approaching the 800 Metres MODERN TSAR commenced to prove difficult to settle and shifted out away from the heels of WAH MAY BABY which was racing close to the heels of MARVEL TRIBE.

At this time, the tempo of the race slackened which resulted in COMEBACK KID and THE SYLPH improving their positions between HO LEE HORSE and MODERN TSAR where there was insufficient room for two horses.

The Stewards further found that after the 700 Metres THE SYLPH, when continuing to race keenly, shifted out and bumped COMEBACK KID which was racing tight inside MODERN TSAR.

As a result of this bump, COMEBACK KID was taken out across the heels of MODERN TSAR, clipped the heels of that horse and fell, causing A Suborics to be dislodged.

ARCHIPPUS, which was following, was severely checked in consequence.

The Stewards advised all parties that they were of the view that the incident was as a consequence of the racing manners of THE SYLPH together with the tempo of the race which was quite slow which resulted in a number of horses, apart from those mentioned, proving difficult to settle.

As the Stewards were satisfied that there was no carelessness exhibited by any rider in this incident and that, whilst the tempo of the race was slow at this time, there was no undue slackening of the tempo on behalf of any individual rider, no further action was taken.
