Recap by phillip woo

London Master made a good bid following a handy run along the stands side to grab Winner St Paul's on the line for a maiden win at only his second outing. Winner St Paul's got squeezed out passing the 800m by the eventual winner to travel behind midfield and three off the grandstand side, responded well to poke his head in front 50m out and was nipped on the wire. He'll be winning a race soon. Highland Hammer kept on gamely despite being headed for the lead 300m out after making his run near the outside fence. Excitable Boy was up sharing the lead 650m out, gained a half-length advantage at the 300m and knocked up in the final 50m. He was in need of the run and will be hard to run down next time out. Diego Kosta held his ground following a prominent run near the center of the course. Whistle Blower gave way 100m out after travelling third on the far side from a difficult gate. Plunged late, Speedy Sandy came up one-paced after shifting into the open one from the far side at the 200m following a midfield run in the center of the course. Favourite Timely Arrived came up flat after copping a check 200m out following a run fore of midfield two from the far side.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (056)-CHICAGO HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Metres

Whilst in the saddling stalls, LONDON MASTER had its left hind plate refitted.

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

K C Ng (G-ONE LEADER) was fined the sum of $2,000 for presenting himself to be weighed out with the incorrect saddle cloth number.

TIMELY ARRIVED and DIEGO KOSTA bumped heavily at the start.

WINASWEWISH was very slow to begin.

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

HAYHAY and G-ONE LEADER bumped shortly after the start.

HANG'S DECISION was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 600 Metres, G-ONE LEADER raced tight between SPEEDY SANDY and WINNER ST PAUL'S.

Approaching and passing the 400 Metres, G-ONE LEADER got its head on the side and hung in.

Near the 50 Metres, SPEEDY SANDY was shifted in away from the heels of WHISTLE BLOWER.

The Stewards considered a protest/objection lodged by D Whyte, the rider of WINNER ST PAUL'S, which finished second, against LONDON MASTER (G Mosse), the winner of the race, alleging interference near the 900 Metres.

After taking evidence from all parties concerned and after viewing the official videos, the Stewards found that near the 900 Metres when racing to the outside of LONDON MASTER, WINNER ST PAUL'S lost its rightful running and was checked as a result of LONDON MASTER shifting out.

However, given that the incident occurred near the 900 Metres, the Stewards could not be satisfied that had the interference not occurred, WINNER ST PAUL'S would have beaten LONDON MASTER and accordingly the protest/objection was overruled and weighed-in declared on the numbers as displayed by the Judge.

At a subsequent inquiry, G Mosse pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that in this incident he failed to make sufficient endeavours to prevent his mount from shifting out which resulted in LONDON MASTER shifting out across the rightful running of WINNER ST PAUL'S.

G Mosse was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 26 October 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Ascot (UK) racemeeting on Saturday, 17 October 2015.

M L Yeung, the rider of the 6th placegetter, WHISTLE BLOWER, pleaded guilty to a breach of Rule 100(2) in that he failed to ride his mount out all the way to the end of the race to the satisfaction of the Stewards.

M L Yeung was fined the sum of $15,000.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of TIMELY ARRIVED, B Prebble stated that after becoming unbalanced at the start, he was able to obtain a good trailing position behind EXCITABLE BOY in the early stages.

He said TIMELY ARRIVED travelled only fairly and after the 700 Metres became unbalanced when racing in restricted room between WHISTLE BLOWER and DIEGO KOSTA.

He added TIMELY ARRIVED came off the bridle before the 500 Metres and then, despite being placed under pressure, did not respond to his riding.

He said although TIMELY ARRIVED was steadied when crowded for room approaching the 200 Metres between WHISTLE BLOWER and DIEGO KOSTA, both of which shifted ground, TIMELY ARRIVED was already a beaten horse at this stage.

He said after this, despite being ridden out, TIMELY ARRIVED did not finish off the race as he expected.

A veterinary inspection of TIMELY ARRIVED immediately following the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had twisted its right front plate, however, it was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.
