Recap by phillip woo

Mighty Gains was vying for the lead three-to-four deep with Xi Ying Men from an awkward gate, put his head on top three deep at the 250m and repelled a challenge from favourite Kingston Jumbo over the final 200m to chalk up a second win over this surface this term. Kingston Jumbo was never better than four-or-five deep without cover near the speed, drew within a neck at the 200m and couldn't get by the winner. Dragon Energy was handy in the run three deep with cover, swung the final bend with three wider out and just got up in the final stride to finish a distant third. Tang Palace travelled one-out, one-back after a sluggish break, straightened four deep and kept grinding with every chance. Xi Ying Men set a genuine pace, cornered narrowly on top and was stopping 150m out to continue his bad track record on the dirt. Rising Power settled one off in midfield and made only a mild bid four deep. Solar Boy had no excuses after box-seat run. Fortune Bravo couldn't stay in touch under hard riding and was never a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (158)-PANASONIC BREAD MAKER HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

TANG PALACE began only fairly and shortly after the start was crowded for room between XI YING MEN and SOLAR BOY which shifted out.

SKY FIRE and KINGSTON JUMBO bumped on jumping.

A short distance after the start, SKY FIRE was bumped by KINGSTON JUMBO which shifted in.

Near the 900 Metres, DRAGON ENERGY was momentarily crowded for room between SOLAR DRAGON which shifted in after being bumped on the hindquarters by DRAGON ENERGY and TANG PALACE which was taken out by SOLAR BOY.

In this incident, TANG PALACE also became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by DRAGON ENERGY.

Z Purton (MIGHTY GAINS) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 800 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of KINGSTON JUMBO, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

Z Purton was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 8 December 2014 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting to be conducted on Sunday, 30 November 2014.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey Purton's good race riding record during the most recent 2013/2014 and current racing seasons.

Making the turn approaching the 700 Metres, TANG PALACE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of XI YING MEN.

Close to the finishing line, FORTUNE BRAVO was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SOLAR BOY.

For the majority of the race, KINGSTON JUMBO travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that TELECOM TOP STAR had bled from both nostrils.

A veterinary inspection of SOLAR BOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

MIGHTY GAINS and KINGSTON JUMBO were sent for sampling.
