Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite Blizzard made use of a good gate to sit handy along the rails, came one off upon straightening and copped a couple of sharp bumps from Travel Renyi when just failing to miss victory by a bob of heads. He was later promoted to the win position. Travel Renyi made his run one off the rails in midfield, swung the final bend with three wider out, rolled in under pressure to hit the front 180m out and kept on gamely for the win after interfering with Blizzard. He's ready to win. Tonyboy settled midfield along the rails, rounded the final bend five deep and closed off nicely to edge out Multimax for a placing. Multimax shifted out three deep at the 300m and lost a placing when having to steady 100m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (570)-AUDEMARS PIGUET LADY JULES AUDEMARS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

HAPPY METEOR was withdrawn on 23.4.15 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (respiratory infection) and was replaced by first Standby Declared Starter BRILLANTE.

LINE SEEKER was withdrawn on 25.4.15 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetence) and was replaced by second Standby Declared Starter NOBLE ALPHA (B Prebble).

Before being allowed to race again, HAPPY METEOR and LINE SEEKER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

AFFLUENCE OF RAIN began very awkwardly and lost ground.

EYE ON YOU was crowded for room on jumping between TRAVEL RENYI which shifted out and BRILLANTE which shifted in.

In this incident, EYE ON YOU and TRAVEL RENYI both became unbalanced.

WONDERFUL COUPLES began awkwardly.

THOR THE GREATEST lost its right front plate shortly after the start.

Rounding the Home Turn, BLIZZARD and MULTIMAX raced tight due to BLIZZARD shifting out.

Approaching the 400 Metres, TONYBOY was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of MULTIMAX.

BLIZZARD had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and passing the 300 Metres shifted out and bumped BRILLANTE which became unbalanced.

Neat the 300 Metres, TONYBOY was crowded for room between BOSSIEE and MULTIMAX (D Whyte) which shifted out.

D Whyte was advised to exercise more care.

Passing the 100 Metres, MULTIMAX was crowded for room inside TRAVEL RENYI (O Doleuze) which shifted in.

O Doleuze was advised to exercise more care.

The Stewards deferred the declaration of weighed-in as they were of the prima facie view that an incident had occurred over the final 50 Metres which cast doubt on whether TRAVEL RENYI (O Doleuze) should be declared the winner of the race.

Subsequently K Teetan, the rider of BLIZZARD, second placegetter, lodged a protest/objection against TRAVEL RENYI being declared the winner alleging interference to his mount over about the final 50 Metres.

After taking evidence from all parties concerned and after viewing the videos, the Stewards found that near the 50 Metres TRAVEL RENYI shifted in under pressure and bumped BLIZZARD and that over the concluding stages TRAVEL RENYI continued to shift in and bump BLIZZARD, causing that horse to become badly unbalanced.

Having regard to the manner in which the horses were closing off the race and the nose margin between TRAVEL RENYI and BLIZZARD at the end of the race, the Stewards were comfortably satisfied that the interference had affected the finishing positions of the horses.

Accordingly, the protest/objection was sustained and the placings were amended to read No.

14, BLIZZARD, 1st; No.

10, TRAVEL RENYI, 2nd; No.

2, TONYBOY, 3rd; and No.

5, MULTIMAX, 4th.

Subsequently O Doleuze was severely reprimanded and advised that in similar circumstances he would be expected to stop riding and straighten his mounts and ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground and causing interference to other runners.

For the majority of the race, FIONN'S TREASURE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that BOSSIEE travelled keenly, however, was disappointing in its failure to respond to his riding in the Straight.

TRAVEL RENYI and BLIZZARD were sent for sampling.

Adjourned Inquiry - 22 April 2015 Happy Valley Racemeeting- Race 8 (560) Apprentice C Y Lui (YOU READ MY MIND) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1000 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when insufficiently clear of HARBOUR PUNK, causing that horse to be hampered and steadied out across the heels of YOU READ MY MIND.

Apprentice Lui was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Sunday, 17 May 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (4 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 3 May 2015.

Apprentice Lui also pleaded guilty to a further charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that over the final 200 Metres he permitted his mount to shift out under pressure, resulting in HARBOUR PUNK being unnecessarily crowded for room between HIGH FIVE and YOU READ MY MIND over the concluding stages.

Apprentice Lui was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 21 May 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (5 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was also deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 3 May 2015.

The Stewards ruled that both terms of suspension be served concurrently.

Apprentice Lui, in the presence of his allocated trainer, Mr P F Yiu, was advised that notwithstanding his right of appeal in respect of each of these charges, his race riding record in respect of careless riding matters this season was of significant concern to the Stewards as these were his 5th and 6th charge of careless riding respectively this season from just 141 rides during the relevant time.

He was advised that he must take the necessary steps to ensure that his race riding improves in respect of safety matters and that his riding record would be referred to the Licensing Committee when they consider licences for the 2015/2016 racing season.

Apprentice Lui was also shown the video of his riding of YOU READ MY MIND over the final 200 Metres and was told that the manner in which he rode the horse out in this race was also a concern to the Stewards albeit he is still an apprentice.
