Recap by phillip woo

Co-favourite Eroico was ridden along from a wide gate to settle one off in second from a wide gate, advanced to the front 300m out and kept on gamely to notch a second win from three starts. He's got plenty more up his sleeves. Tonyboy made his run third from the rear after a sluggish get away, was held up until switching into the clear with two wider out at the 180m and thundered home thereafter. He should have gone closer to winning in his season debut for his new trainer. Tango Fire travelled deep with cover behind midfield, swung the final bend with one wider out, moved to second at the 100m and was caught late. Punted Brilliant Dream had every chance after a rail's run in fourth and came up one-paced over the final 150m. He's better suited over the 1,400m. Golden Deer made a steady bid without menacing following a one-off run in midfield. Chater Legend travelled a distant last, shifted widest out at the 350m and ran on reasonably well in a nice debut effort. Dashing Ceramibo weakened after setting a genuine pace. Harbour Victory nearly dumped rider Gerald Mosse when losing his irons at the 350m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (235)-LONDON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres


Shortly after the start, BRILLIANT DREAM was bumped by CHEERS JOY which shifted in.

Also shortly after the start, HARBOUR VICTORY was momentarily crowded for room inside GRIMMY which was taken in by DASHING CERAMIBO.

J Moreira (EROICO) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 950 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not sufficiently clear of JOYFUL THE GREAT, causing that horse to be hampered and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

J Moreira was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Friday, 2 January 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 17 December 2014.

Approaching the 800 Metres, JOYFUL THE GREAT, which was over-racing, was checked away from the heels of EROICO (J Moreira) which shifted in when not properly clear.

J Moreira was severely reprimanded and advised that whilst there were some circumstances to this incident, nonetheless he must ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Shortly after entering the Straight, TONYBOY was shifted out away from the heels of GRAN BOLIVAR to obtain clear running.

GOLDEN DEER was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and approaching the 300 Metres was shifted to the inside of SKY MAN to obtain clear running, resulting in JOYFUL THE GREAT, which was giving ground, being inconvenienced.

Approaching the 350 Metres, the left stirrup leather attached to G Mosse's saddle broke, resulting in the stirrup iron becoming dislodged and causing G Mosse to become badly unbalanced and almost to be dislodged from HARBOUR VICTORY.

Because of this, G Mosse was unable to ride out HARBOUR VICTORY for the remainder of the race.

After the race, the Stewards inspected the faulty stirrup leather and found this piece of equipment to be relatively new.

When this incident occurred, CHATER LEGEND, which was following, was shifted out abruptly away from the heels of HARBOUR VICTORY.

Passing the 300 Metres, CHEERS JOY was crowded for room between HARBOUR VICTORY which shifted in and TONYBOY which was also shifting ground.

M Demuro (TONYBOY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 200 Metres he permitted his mount to shift out when not clear of CHEERS JOY, causing that horse to be checked, to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled and to blunder.

M Demuro was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Sunday, 11 January 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The Stewards ruled that this period of suspension is to be served cumulatively with the previous period of suspension Jockey Demuro incurred at the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 7 December 2014 and accordingly will commence on Friday, 2 January 2015.

After the 100 Metres, CHEERS JOY was awkwardly placed inside HARBOUR VICTORY.

Throughout the race, SKY MAN travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

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

BRILLIANT DREAM, EROICO and TONYBOY were sent for sampling.
