Recap by phillip woo

Jun Huo jumped well to travel one off in third, cornered five deep and wore down Club Life 150m out for the victory with a step up in distance following a positive debut effort last month over 1,400m. Plunged late, Club Life strolled forward from the widest gate to lead 1,250m, cornered a length in top and went down fighting. It was a good three lengths back to Ambitious Champion who came on six off the rails in the stretch drive following a deep run with cover in midfield to just snare third close to home. Little Dragon had shown little in four prior starts but came with a good run with two wider out after a patient ride fifth from the rear to inject value into the Quartet. Carrying roll-up money, Terrific Master settled at the tail from a wide gate, pushed furthest out upon straightening and finished well to just miss a First-4 spot despite a step up in grade. So Caffe enjoyed a nice run three back along the paint, straightened one off and came up one-paced with every chance. Berlini, who was stepping up in distance, wasn't able to find much after a prominent run without cover. Divine Diya only passed beaten rivals from the back from the widest gate. He's better over 1,400m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (167)-PANASONIC MY CHEF STEAM COMBINATION OVEN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600Metres

At declaration time, B Prebble was declared as the rider of both MODERN TSAR and JUN HUO.

It was established that B Prebble had a firm commitment to ride JUN HUO.

As such, the Stewards permitted W M Lai to be substituted as the rider of MODERN TSAR.

For this declaration error, B Prebble was fined $2,000.

BOY OH BOY was withdrawn on 14.11.14 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter THE SYLPH.

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

When parading behind the barriers, MODERN TSAR and LITTLE DRAGON made contact.

Both MODERN TSAR and LITTLE DRAGON were examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion they were suitable to race.

SHORT SQUEEZE and THE SYLPH were slow to begin.

From wide barriers, TERRIFIC MASTER and DIVINE DIYA were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, AMBITIOUS CHAMPION, which commenced to prove difficult to settle, shifted out abruptly away from the heels of BERLINI which was proving difficult to settle when attempting to obtain cover behind JUN HUO.

Near the 1200 Metres, DIVINE DIYA shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of LITTLE DRAGON.

On a number of occasions along the Back Straight and making the turn out of the Back Straight, THE SYLPH got its head up and proved very difficult to settle.

After speaking with K Teetan regarding this matter and having in mind that this was the second occasion that THE SYLPH had proved very difficult to settle in its races from only two starts in Hong Kong, the Stewards ruled that prior to the being permitted to race again, the horse will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial around a bend.

Near the 600 Metres, THE SYLPH was steadied away from the heels of SO CAFFE.

For the major part of the race, BERLINI travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, C Y Ho stated that he could offer no explanation for the disappointing performance of GRAND ELITE as he expected the horse to quicken well in the Straight given that it had enjoyed a good run throughout the race.

A veterinary inspection of GRAND ELITE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of GRAND ELITE, a last start winner, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, GRAND ELITE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of DIVINE DIYA and SHORT SQUEEZE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BERLINI, JUN HUO and CLUB LIFE were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

12 November 2014 Happy Valley Racemeeting - Race 5 (154) When viewing the films in correlation with the sectional times, the Stewards believed it was appropriate to question J Moreira regarding his riding of SOUTHERN SPRINGS.

J Moreira stated that he had been asked to ride SOUTHERN SPRINGS in about 3rd or 4th position with cover behind the speed.

He said he rode his mount positively in the early stages with a view to shifting in to race outside HURRY HURRY UP and then hopefully allowing other runners to improve around SOUTHERN SPRINGS to provide his mount with cover.

He said however that PLAIN BLUE BANNER was vigorously ridden to his inside and he felt that were he to ride SOUTHERN SPRINGS to clear that horse, SOUTHERN SPRINGS would then be required to most likely lead which would be contrary to his instructions.

He said therefore he elected to allow PLAIN BLUE BANNER to improve to his inside in the run to the winning post on the first occasion and had hoped to obtain cover behind KOKODA which eventually settled on the back of PLAIN BLUE BANNER.

He said however that ONE OF A KIND and DRAGON GLORY improved quickly to his inside and passing the winning post on the first occasion he was left racing in a position three wide and without cover.

He added that after the 1200 Metres he did consider allowing his mount to improve its position, however, he felt that the race was not being run as slowly as it subsequently eventuated and therefore he was not sure whether he would have sufficient horse to make a forward move at this time of the race and still be able to finish off the race.

He said after considering the sectionals of the race, he believed in retrospect he had erred in his judgement of how the race was being run at that time and with this knowledge he felt that SOUTHERN SPRINGS' best interests may have been served by allowing the horse to improve its position rather than continuing to race in a three wide position and without cover.

J Moreira was advised that his explanation would be reported and that he must, wherever circumstances permit, ride his mounts in such a manner so as to ensure that they do not cover unnecessary ground.
