Recap by phillip woo

Rock The Tree was posted without cover behind midfield until the 800m, angled into the clear with two wider out at the 350m and let down nicely with first-time blinkers to run down Demokles 30m out for a first win at his 12th start. He's come good this campaign and could win another. Demokles found one too smart after hitting the front 250m out following a handy run outside Winning Premium, then just held off old-timer Always Something for second. Always Something made his run underneath Rock The Tree, cornered five deep and finished up nicely with a return to Class Four. Oxford Charley was patiently ridden third from the rear from a wide gate and was slicing his way through the field to get up for a Quartet spot. Favourite Towering Storm was ridden to hold a rail's position in midfield after a sluggish break, stayed near the inside upon straightening and plugged on without menacing despite a return to Class Four. Winning Premium made his run in fourth along the rails, switched off the heels of Demokles with three wider out at the 350m and ran on steadily. Giggles Forever travelled in the second half of the field and made some ground with one wider out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (144)-SANA HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Metres

HEAVENISARACEHORSE was withdrawn on 6.11.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (wound to left front fetlock) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter SUPER STRIKE.

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

GIGGLES FOREVER began awkwardly.

STREET CAT was slow to begin.

From wide barriers, OXFORD CHARLEY and LET'S GOAL were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1500 Metres, GIGGLES FOREVER got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SPICY DRAGON.

WINNING PREMIUM lost its left hind plate at about the 800 Metres.

Passing the 700 Metres, TOWERING STORM was momentarily crowded for room when improving into tight running inside WINNING PREMIUM.

Near the 500 Metres, TOWERING STORM was awkwardly placed close to the heels of JUST ACE.

OXFORD CHARLEY had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

G Mosse (OXFORD CHARLEY) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 250 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of STREET CAT, resulting in that horse being checked and losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

G Mosse was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 29 December 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, 14 December 2014.

Approaching the 50 Metres, OXFORD CHARLEY raced in restricted room between ALWAYS SOMETHING and WINNING PREMIUM which shifted in.

Then over the concluding stages, OXFORD CHARLEY and ALWAYS SOMETHING raced tight outside DEMOKLES which shifted out under pressure.

A veterinary inspection of GLORIOUS RYDER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

TOWERING STORM, ROCK THE TREE and DEMOKLES were sent for sampling.
