Recap by phillip woo

Best Hope was gifted an uncontested lead and kept up a good gallop for the win. Plunged late, Unique Joyful kept on nicely after prominent run without cover from a tricky gate. Danewin Express rallied four deep following a rail's run in midfield for a placing. If he stays sound, he'll be winning a race at this level. Double Point kept plugging away following a one-out, one-back run to give the Quartet some value. Favourite Glacier Blue made some ground without menacing after travelling behind midfield along the rails following a sluggish break. Cash Courier made only a mild bid widest out after travelling fourth from the rear despite a drop in grade. He wasn't suited by the tempo. Strathearn was getting going with one wider out after travelling last from the widest berth. He too was beaten by the pace. Packing Dragon held his ground following a one-off run in midfield. Specked late, Wire To Wire made some progress near the inside after travelling second from the rear.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (023)-HUIZHOU HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Metres

SECRET CODE was withdrawn on 10.9.15 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (inappetence).

Before being allowed to race again, SECRET CODE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Whilst in the saddling stalls, CASH COURIER had its right hind plate refitted.

CASH COURIER was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

FORTUNE TERRITORY was slow to begin and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of GLACIER BLUE which was hampered and taken in by DANEWIN EXPRESS which began awkwardly.

DASHING SUPER shifted in at the start and bumped PACKING DRAGON.

From the outside barrier, STRATHEARN was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

WIRE TO WIRE was also shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 950 Metres, GLACIER BLUE got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of PACKING DRAGON which was awkwardly placed close to the heels of DOUBLE POINT.

Then approaching the turn near the 900 Metres, GLACIER BLUE raced tight between DANEWIN EXPRESS and HARBOUR VICTORY.

Passing the 900 Metres, FORTUNE TERRITORY got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of GLACIER BLUE.

In the early part of the Straight, STRATHEARN was shifted out across the heels of CASH COURIER to obtain clear running.

Passing the 250 Metres, DOUBLE POINT was awkwardly placed outside the heels of DANEWIN EXPRESS.

When questioned, Apprentice K K Chiong, in the presence of her allocated trainer, Mr K W Lui, stated that in the early stages UNIQUE JOYFUL was able to obtain a three wide position outside DASHING SUPER.

She said near the 1100 Metres she became aware that the rider of DASHING SUPER was shifting that horse in to race on the rail and she immediately commenced to steady UNIQUE JOYFUL to obtain a trailing position behind ALL IS WELL.

She added as she was doing this, UNIQUE JOYFUL commenced to prove somewhat difficult to steady and consequently she was not able to immediately shift that horse across to obtain the available position behind ALL IS WELL.

She said as she was continuing to steady UNIQUE JOYFUL, DOUBLE POINT was ridden along from a trailing position behind UNIQUE JOYFUL to obtain the position inside her mount following ALL IS WELL and this resulted in UNIQUE JOYFUL being left racing in a three wide position without cover.

Apprentice Chiong was told that the Stewards were very mindful that her riding career in Hong Kong had only just commenced and that a necessary aspect of being an apprentice jockey is gaining experience.

She was advised however that, in the opinion of the Stewards, she could have been more assertive on this occasion when shifting UNIQUE JOYFUL across which would not have provided DOUBLE POINT the opportunity to improve inside UNIQUE JOYFUL, the consequence being that UNIQUE JOYFUL was left racing wide and without cover.

GLACIER BLUE, BEST HOPE and UNIQUE JOYFUL were sent for sampling.
