Recap by phillip woo

Archer's Bow box seated after handing up the lead at the 1,400m, burst to the front four deep approaching the 150m and held off the late surge of Rising Power for an overdue win at his 19th start. Rising Power was ridden cold from a wide gate, angled into the clear five deep at the 300m and finished willingly to make it close on the wire. Favourite Jun Hao settled third from the rear near the inside following a slow break, swung the final bend with one wider out and was running on reasonably well for a placing. Amazing Gift made the decision to go forward mid-race after being posted without cover in midfield to hit the front 500m out, cornered two lengths clear and peaked on his run 100m out. Red Adventure settled three back along the fence, straightened one off and made a mild bid. Kharu travelled one off in a prominent spot, cornered five deep and was one-paced over the final 200m. Wine Lovers settled one off with cover in midfield, took closer order at the 650m, swung the final bend with two wider out and came up flat over the final 150m. Super Team travelled one off beyond midfield, was short of room five deep approaching the 200m and gave up the chase 100m out. American Fame travelled one off fore of midfield, cornered four deep and was checked passing the 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (206)-BELLFLOWER HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650Metres

JUN HAO began awkwardly.

AMERICAN FAME and SUPER TEAM were crowded for room on jumping between RED ADVENTURE which shifted out and WINE LOVERS which shifted in.

From the outside barrier, RISING POWER was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, FIERY PATROL failed to muster speed.

Passing the 1300 Metres, JUN HAO got its head up on a number of occasions when proving difficult to settle.

Near the 1200 Metres, AMAZING GIFT was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 1100 Metres, WINE LOVERS, which was proving difficult to settle, was crowded onto the hindquarters of AMAZING GIFT by RED ADVENTURE which shifted out after being checked away from the heels of ARCHER'S BOW.

YOUNG HAPPY, which was following RED ADVENTURE, was inconvenienced in consequence.

Near the 1000 Metres, JUN HAO, which was continuing to prove difficult to settle, got its head up when awkwardly placed behind YOUNG HAPPY.

Passing the 800 Metres, JUN HAO shifted out away from the heels of YOUNG HAPPY when continuing to over-race and in doing so bumped SUPER TEAM which became unbalanced.

Making the turn near the 600 Metres, AMERICAN FAME was steadied away from the heels of KHARU which got its head on the side and shifted in away from AMAZING GIFT which shifted in slightly.

Passing the 400 Metres, SUPER TEAM was hampered when racing close to the heels of WINE LOVERS.

T H So (KHARU) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 200 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of AMERICAN FAME, resulting in that horse being taken in onto YOUNG HAPPY, causing those horses to be badly hampered and to lose the running to which they were rightfully entitled.

T H So was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 18 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, 7 December 2014.

Over the concluding stages, AMERICAN FAME and SUPER TEAM were steadied when unable to proceed into tight running between KHARU and WINE LOVERS.

A veterinary inspection of WINE LOVERS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

JUN HAO, ARCHER'S BOW and RISING POWER were sent for sampling.
