Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Flying Chaparral eventually settled one-out, one-back from gate five, bolted to the front nearly four deep at the 200m and kept on gamely to notch a fourth win from 15 outings over this Valley trip. Safari Magic settled midfield along the rails, rounded the final bend four deep and just outfinished Win It by a whisker for second. Win It made his run fore of midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend five deep and ran on steadily to make it close for the Quinella spot. Late-fancied favourite Triumphant Dragon was stuck in a pocket following a box-seat run and only got out at the 150m. He can be forgiven for the run. Fresh And Fresh was revved up to sit outside the leader Fotogenic at the 1,050m, was still second at the 150m and peaked on his run 100m out. Restless in the stalls, Cheers Joy jumped okay to settle nearly three deep behind midfield, swung the final bend with three wider out and got going late without menacing. Rouge Et Blanc made his run fourth from the back after jumping sluggishly, straightened nearly three deep and did eventually get going in the final 150m. He's crying out for a longer trip. Strathtay made his run at or near the rear after copping a check passing the winning post for the first time, swung the final bend with one wider out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (435)-SIU SAI WAN HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 4 - 1650Metres

After being loaded, CHEERS JOY became fractious.

Before being allowed to race again, CHEERS JOY will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

ROUGE ET BLANC was slow to begin.

FOTOGENIC and WIN IT bumped at the start.

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

Despite being vigorously ridden along in the early stages, SAFARI MAGIC was slow to muster speed.

O Doleuze (SNOWHOOVES) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the winning post on the first occasion he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of STRATHTAY, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

O Doleuze was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 2 April 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Dubai World Cup Racemeeting on Saturday, 28 March 2015.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey Doleuze's good race riding record during the current racing season.

In determining the commencement date of this suspension, the Stewards took into consideration the number of available jockeys for the racemeetings prior to Sunday, 29 March 2015.

After the 1000 Metres, KING'S STEED was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 900 Metres, WIN IT was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FLYING CHAPARRAL.

Also passing the 900 Metres, SNOWHOOVES got its head up on a number of occasions when proving difficult to settle.

Approaching the 800 Metres, STRATHTAY commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ROUGE ET BLANC.

Passing the 800 Metres, ROUGE ET BLANC shifted in towards the running rail of its own accord and became badly unbalanced.

At the entrance to the Straight, TRIUMPHANT DRAGON was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PHOTOGENIC.

Passing the 300 Metres, TRIUMPHANT DRAGON got its head on the side and hung in across the heels of FOTOGENIC, causing TRIUMPHANT DRAGON to be severely checked.

TRIUMPHANT DRAGON was then badly held up for clear running until passing the 200 Metres.

For some distance after the 200 Metres, SAFARI MAGIC and WIN IT raced tight as SAFARI MAGIC shifted to the outside of FLYING CHAPARRAL.

Then over the concluding stages, WIN IT shifted in slightly, resulting in SAFARI MAGIC being inconvenienced.

When questioned regarding his riding out of SAFARI MAGIC over the concluding stages, Y T Cheng stated that at that time he was racing tight inside WIN IT which restricted the manner in which he was able to ride his mount out.

Nonetheless Y T Cheng conceded that he had misjudged the finishing line which resulted in him not riding SAFARI MAGIC out all the way to the end of the race.

Y T Cheng was severely reprimanded and was told that had SAFARI MAGIC not have run second, he would likely have been asked to face a charge which would necessarily attach to it a significant penalty.
