Recap by phillip woo

Sporting cheek pieces for the first time, Helene Super Star settled fourth along the rails, worked to the lead three deep at the 200m and just held on with a treble of runners breathing down his back in the shadows of the post. Dominant was quietly ridden one off the fence second from the rear, swung the final bend widest out and was closing the gap late to snatch second on the wire. Helene Happy Star settled one off in third behind the slow pace of Same World, straightened three deep and plugged on gamely to just nose out favourite Blazing Speed for a placing. Blazing Speed settled one off the rails in fifth, swung the final bend with two wider out and was plugging away to just miss a placing. Harbour Master was ridden cold from the widest gate, was short of room three deep upon straightening, dropped to the fence at the 200m and stayed on nicely thereafter to just finish out of the placings in his first run over the 2,400m. He would have made it very close with uninterrupted running. Mr Gnocchi wasn't up to the task over a route for the first time following a rail's run third from the rear following a stable change. Khaya stalked Same World in second, advanced to the front 600m out and was struggling at the 200m. Same World just doesn't get the trip.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (659)-THE STANDARD CHARTERED CHAMPIONS & CHATER CUP - Group One - 2400Metres

MR GNOCCHI and BLAZING SPEED bumped on a number of occasions shortly after the start.

Shortly after the start, K Teetan (KHAYA) adjusted his right stirrup iron.

HELENE SUPER STAR lost its right front plate at the 2100 Metres.

T Berry (DOMINANT) was found guilty of a charge of improper riding [Rule 100(1)] in that between the 1700 Metres and the 1600 Metres he directed his mount in onto MR GNOCCHI which had established its position one horse away from the rail.

As a result of directing DOMINANT in onto MR GNOCCHI at this time, MR GNOCCHI was unnecessarily hampered and became unbalanced on a number of occasions when being bumped by DOMINANT.

T Berry was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 9 July 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (6 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the race meeting to be conducted in Queensland on Saturday, 20 June 2015.

For some distance after this, DOMINANT and MR GNOCCHI continued to race tight.

Near the 650 Metres, HELENE SUPER STAR and HELENE HAPPY STAR raced tight.

Rounding the Home Turn, DOMINANT became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by MR GNOCCHI which was attempting to improve between DOMINANT and BLAZING SPEED which, when shifting to the outside of HELENE HAPPY STAR, was taken wider by that horse which was taken out by HELENE SUPER STAR which shifted out to improve around KHAYA.

HARBOUR MASTER was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Near the 100 Metres, HARBOUR MASTER was momentarily awkwardly placed when racing tight inside HELENE SUPER STAR.

The performance of SAME WORLD, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, SAME WORLD will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
