Recap by phillip woo

Royal Partner came with a strong move one off in midfield to take control passing the 100m mark for a third career win over this Valley trip. Griffindor enjoyed an easy time in the lead, cornered a half-length on top and kept on gamely for second. Late-fancied favourite Wah May Baby stalked the leader one off the rails, straightened three deep and whacked on reasonably well to hold off the late-surging Expedite for a place. Expedite made his run behind midfield along the fence, shifted to the outside of Royal Partner at the 200m and finished nicely thereafter. He is not far off a winning run. Cheers Joy straightened four deep following a prominent run with cover and kept on one-paced over the final 150m. Oscar Miracle enjoyed a box-seat run, stayed to the inside upon straightening and only held his ground over the final 200m. Monsieur Mongok was handy in the run along the rails, cornered one off the fence and kept on all right despite racing in tight quarters over the final 150m. Early favourite First Sight Love ran on steadily without menacing with three wider out after travelling with cover behind midfield. Fun Rider went back from a wide alley and was badly hampered upon straightening. He can be forgiven for this run. Spinning Dancer never was a factor after travelling second from the rear.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (175)-TAI TAM HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

At declaration time, M Demuro was declared as the rider of both FUN RIDER and CHEERS JOY.

It was established that M Demuro had a firm commitment to ride CHEERS JOY.

As such, the Stewards permitted G Mosse to be substituted as the rider of FUN RIDER.

For this declaration error, M Demuro was fined $2,000.

MONSIEUR MOGOK began only fairly.

As the start was effected, GRIFFINDOR lifted its front feet off the ground and began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, SUPREME ESSENCE, FUN RIDER, SPINNING DANCER and EXPEDITE were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 900 Metres, FUN RIDER was checked away from the heels of SNOWHOOVES which itself was checked away from the heels of EXPEDITE when travelling keenly.

After the 900 Metres, SPINNING DANCER proved difficult to settle when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SUPREME ESSENCE.

M Chadwick (SNOWHOOVES) was found guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 300 Metres he permitted his mount to shift out when not clear of FUN RIDER, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

M Chadwick 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 on Sunday, 30 November 2014.

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

Passing the 200 Metres, EXPEDITE and FIRST SIGHT LOVE raced tight.

Over the concluding stages, MONSIEUR MOGOK was awkwardly placed inside the heels of GRIFFINDOR.

In the Straight, CHEERS JOY hung in under pressure and proved difficult to ride.

A veterinary inspection of FIRST SIGHT LOVE and SPINNING DANCER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

WAH MAY BABY, ROYAL PARTNER and GRIFFINDOR were sent for sampling.
