Recap by phillip woo

Telephatia was ridden for luck at the back of the field, stayed to the inside upon straightening and got up in the final few strides for the win despite shifting ground under the whip. Towering Storm settled third from the rear, crept closer approaching the final bend, cornered with three wider out, hit the front 150m out and found one too good in the end. Loving Star still had one behind him upon straightening with two wider out and finished up nicely for a placing. Navel Orange's 800m move from behind midfield to lead 500m out backfired when he peaked on his run just 150m out. Zero Energy Act settled midfield along the rails, drifted back to have three behind him upon straightening three deep and made some ground without menacing. Favourite Money Cafe was prominently ridden along the fence, straightened one off the rails and came up flat 200m out in a disappointing run with a switch to the Valley track. Fortune Giggles worked forward to sit outside the leader Mister Marc from a wide gate and was yielding ground coming to the final bend. Mister Marc ran out of gas 200m out after setting some genuine early fractions on the lead.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (414)-TIN LOK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 2200Metres

LOVING STAR began only fairly.

MONEY CAFE began awkwardly.

TOWERING STORM and MOBILE KING were crowded for room on jumping between OCEAN POWER which shifted out marginally and HAPPY CENTENARY which shifted in.

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

After the 1600 Metres, MOBILE KING was left racing wide and without cover and after the 1200 Metres was allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead, however, continued to race wide and without cover.

At the 800 Metres, LOVING STAR was checked after attempting to improve between OCEAN POWER and DRAGON GLORY where there was insufficient room.

At the 500 Metres, LOVING STAR raced tight between ZERO ENERGY ACT and TOWERING STORM and close to the heels of OCEAN POWER.

At the 400 Metres, OCEAN POWER was checked away from the heels of FORTUNE GIGGLES.

LOVING STAR, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

Rounding the Home Turn, ZERO ENERGY ACT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MONEY CAFE.

Near the 250 Metres, TELEPHATIA was momentarily crowded for room inside MONEY CAFE which got its head on the side and shifted in away from MISTER MARC which shifted ground when commencing to weaken.

T H So (ZERO ENERGY ACT) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 250 Metres he permitted his mount to shift out when not clear of OCEAN POWER, resulting in that horse having to be checked when losing its rightful running between ZERO ENERGY ACT and FORTUNE GIGGLES which shifted in marginally at that time.

T H So was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 9 March 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

This suspension is to take immediate effect.

Near the 200 Metres, ZERO ENERGY ACT shifted out and bumped FORTUNE GIGGLES which became unbalanced.

Passing the 100 Metres, TELEPHATIA shifted out under pressure.

O Doleuze (HAPPY CENTENARY) was reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels all the way to the end of the race wherever circumstances permit.

When questioned, J Moreira (NAVEL ORANGE) stated that near the 900 Metres he shifted out into a three wide position and commenced to improve his position in the hope that a runner in advance of NAVEL ORANGE would make a forward move so that he would be able to trail that horse into the race.

He said NAVEL ORANGE took some time to gather momentum and after the 800 Metres he was positioned to the outside of HAPPY CENTENARY which shifted out into a three wide position which resulted in NAVEL ORANGE being left racing in a four wide position without cover.

He said as he was already very wide, with the turn approaching, he felt it was in NAVEL ORANGE's best interests to try and improve his position to cross runners to his inside so as not to be unnecessarily wide when making the turn into the Straight.

He added it took NAVEL ORANGE some time to improve its position and this resulted in NAVEL ORANGE having to make a sustained run over an extended period of the race.

He said NAVEL ORANGE's run consequently finished passing the 200 Metres.

After the race, Z Purton stated that he was not able to offer any excuse for the disappointing performance of MONEY CAFE.

He said the horse travelled satisfactorily in the run, however, did not finish off the race as expected when placed under pressure.

A veterinary inspection of MONEY CAFE immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, MONEY CAFE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of OCEAN POWER and MISTER MARC immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MONEY CAFE, TELEPHATIA and TOWERING STORM were sent for sampling.
