Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late, Sparkling Sword tracked the leader Fresh And Fresh one off in second, worked to the lead three deep at the 150m and kept on gamely to win for a second time in three rides under Joao Moreira. Early favourite Triumphant Dragon settled third along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and got up 50m out for second. Oxford Charley travelled at the tail of the field along the inside, switched into the open six deep upon straightening and closed off willingly to make it close for second. Fresh And Fresh enjoyed an easy time in the lead after clearing from a wide gate, cornered a length on top and grudgingly gave way late in a much-improved performance. Late-fancied favourite Kitaya travelled deep on the course second or third from the rear, swung the final bend widest out and was making a good bid late. Southern Springs made an even bid after a rail's run in midfield. Loving Star settled effectively one out, one back, rounded the final bend six deep and was eased down over the final 150m when looking a beaten runner. He didn't handle the ground. Towering Storm never ran on after travelling fifth from the rear and one off the rails.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (629)-EQUIDIA RACING CHANNEL HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1800Metres

On jumping, RIYADH was bumped by LOVING STAR which shifted in when crowded for room inside SOUTHERN SPRINGS (T H So) which shifted in.

T H So was advised to exercise more care.

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

Near the 1600 Metres, TOWERING STORM was checked when crowded for room between ONE OF A KIND (O Doleuze) which initially shifted out and RIYADH which was taken in by LOVING STAR (D Whyte).

Both O Doleuze and D Whyte were severely reprimanded and told that in similar circumstances they would be expected to make more endeavour to prevent their mounts from shifting ground and causing interference to other runners.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, SOUTHERN SPRINGS was momentarily crowded for room inside TRIUMPHANT DRAGON which got its head on the side and shifted in despite the efforts of its rider.

Near the 1050 Metres, DRAGON PINS was taken wider by KITAYA which shifted out away from the heels of TOWERING STORM.

Near the 900 Metres, KITAYA, which was proving difficult to settle, got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of RIYADH.

ONE OF A KIND lost its left hind plate near the 600 Metres.

Passing the 300 Metres, FRESH AND FRESH got its head on the side and shifted in.

After this, FRESH AND FRESH was inclined to lay in under pressure.

K Teetan (OXFORD CHARLEY) 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 TOWERING STORM, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

K Teetan was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 15 June 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 7 June 2015.

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

Approaching the 200 Metres, OXFORD CHARLEY was shifted in away from the heels of LOVING STAR to obtain clear running.

Throughout the race, RIYADH travelled wide and without cover.

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

A veterinary inspection of TOWERING STORM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
