Recap by phillip woo

London City one off the outside fence in second, advanced to the front 200m out and kept on gamely for a second straight win despite a return to Class Four and shorter trip. Well-punted late, newcomer Amazing Feeling travelled worse than midfield close to the near side fence, bumped with King's Dagger 150m out when pulling out sharply for a run and finished nicely when balancing up thereafter to run down outside Glory Horsie for second. He'll be winning races. Glory Horsie, who had to be vetted at the start, settled third three off the stands side after bumping the favourite Dancing Flames at the start from a low berth, responded under pressure to move to second 100m out and was just caught for second. He's one to keep safe when next stepping out. Raging favourite Dancing Flames was bumped at the start, pushed forward to lead 800m out two off the stands side and was giving way 150m out.

Racing Incident Report


G-ONE BO BO was withdrawn on 28.11.15 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter GLORY HORSIE (R Fourie).

Before being allowed to race again, G-ONE BO BO will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After being loaded, XINJIANG YARN became very fractious, bounded in the stall and then sat down, resulting in its rider, G Benoist, being dislodged.

XINJIANG YARN was removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said that in his opinion it was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of XINJIANG YARN.

Before being allowed to race again, XINJIANG YARN will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GLORY HORSIE, which was positioned in the stall adjacent to XINJIANG YARN, was also removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said that it was suitable to race.

SOCKET KING was slow to begin.

NOBLE BUDDIES began only fairly and on jumping was steadied when crowded for room between SEASONS KING and LONDON CITY which shifted in.

A short distance after this, BULB MASTER shifted in and bumped LONDON CITY.

For some distance after the 800 Metres, RICCO RICCO was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SIR JOHN.

Passing the 600 Metres, SOCKET KING shifted in away from the heels of RICCO RICCO.

AMAZING FEELING was unable to obtain clear running for some distance approaching and passing the 500 Metres.

Then passing the 400 Metres, AMAZING FEELING was steadied and shifted in after being disappointed for running between BULB MASTER and SUGAR which was giving ground.

Approaching the 300 Metres, NOBLE BUDDIES was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SUGAR which continued to give ground.

M L Yeung (SIR JOHN) dropped his whip passing the 250 Metres.

M L Yeung was advised that as this was the third occasion that he had dropped his whip in races, should he come to notice in the near future regarding this matter, further action may be taken.

Approaching the 200 Metres, SEASONS KING was shifted out away from the heels of AMAZING FEELING after being disappointed for running between that horse and KING'S DAGGER.

For some distance after the 200 Metres, SEASONS KING, which was inclined to lay out, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of SIR JOHN.

AMAZING FEELING had some difficulty obtaining clear running passing the 200 Metres.

Near the 150 Metres, SOCKET KING and KING'S DAGGER were checked when crowded for room between RICCO RICCO (Y T Cheng) which shifted out and AMAZING FEELING (C Schofield) which shifted in away from the heels of GLORY HORSIE to obtain clear running after being held up behind that horse.

Y T Cheng was reprimanded and advised that whilst the Stewards acknowledged that he was riding a horse, which when having its first start in Hong Kong, was racing greenly, nonetheless he would be expected to make every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground and causing interference to other runners.

C Schofield was advised to exercise more care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

For the majority of the race, LONDON CITY raced with its head on the side and lay in.

A veterinary inspection of BETA HEDGE immediately following the race revealed the horse to have bled from both nostrils.

A veterinary inspection of SUGAR immediately following the race confirmed the horse to be a "roarer" which had previously been reported.
