Recap by phillip woo

Specked late, Triumphant Jewel rolled forward from a wide gate to punch the breeze in second behind Fun 'N' Games, assumed the front 100m out and held off the late surge of Excel Oneself for the win. Excel Onself was ridden along to hold a position one off the rails fore of midfield, shifted out of traffic five deep at the 200m and finished strongly thereafter to just miss as the late-fancied favourite. Fun 'N' Games battled on gamely after dictating the run to just hold Fantastico for a placing. Fantastico travelled one off with cover in fourth, straightened four deep and plugged on all right to just miss a placing. Roman Legend ran on reasonably well with three wider out after travelling without cover in midfield from a wide gate. Winfull Patrol was badly checked when trying to go through a gap along the rails 200m out following a box-seat run and never a factor thereafter. St Yazin settled second from the rear, straightened four deep, ducked underneath a one-paced Touch Go at the 200m and wasn't fully tested over the final 100m. Touch Go came up flat following a rail's run worse than midfield. Lucky Celebrity made his run four deep without cover third from the rear, forced off the track by Andnowurmine 500m out and was eased down when beaten 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (316)-THE HONG KONG CLUB CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1000Metres.

CHOICE EXCHEQUER began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of ST YAZIN.

From a wide barrier, SPITFIRE was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Making the first turn after the 600 Metres, FANTASTICO shifted out after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of TRIUMPHANT JEWEL.

ROMAN LEGEND and LUCKY CELEBRITY were hampered and taken wider in consequence.

ANDNOWURMINE got its head up and made the turn after the 600 Metres awkwardly.

SPITFIRE, which was following ANDNOWURMINE, shifted out away from the heels of that horse and ran wide.

Approaching the 500 Metres, ST YAZIN, which was racing keenly, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ANDNOWURMINE.

After the 500 Metres, EXCEL ONESELF raced tight inside FANTASTICO.

Passing the 250 Metres, ST YAZIN was shifted in away from the heels of TOUCH GO.

Approaching the 200 Metres, EXCEL ONESELF was shifted to the outside of FANTASTICO after being disappointed for running between that horse and TRIUMPHANT JEWEL.

N Callan (FUN 'N' GAMES) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that for some distance approaching the 200 Metres he failed to make sufficient endeavours to prevent his mount from shifting in, resulting in WINFULL PATROL initially being crowded for room and then after the 200 Metres losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

N Callan was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 5 February 2015 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, 25 January 2015.

Approaching the 100 Metres, TOUCH GO was bumped by ST YAZIN which got its head on the side and shifted out away from WINFULL PATROL.

At the 100 Metres, SPITFIRE was struck over the nose by the whip of B Prebble (LUCKY CELEBRITY).

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of D Whyte (WINFULL PATROL), 6th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horse's finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

When questioned, G Mosse stated that over the concluding stages ST YAZIN was awkwardly placed inside the heels of FANTASTICO after laying out away from WINFULL PATROL.

He said because of the positioning of ST YAZIN at this time, he was not able to ride the horse out all the way to the end of the race.

A veterinary inspection of LUCKY CELEBRITY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

TRIUMPHANT JEWEL and EXCEL ONESELF were sent for sampling.
