Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Hit The Bid jumped alertly to park on the back of the speed, moved to second 600m out, advanced to the front 300m out and drew clear for an overdue win following three earlier placings. Giant Stars travelled beyond midfield, angled into the open with two wider out at the 300m and finished well to run down Longwah Silent 50m out for second. Punted late, Longwah Silent was posted deep with cover in a handy position, moved to second four deep at the 100m and had to settle for third in the end. Fight Hero was eased back to last at the 750m, peeled into the open with one wider out upon straightening and finished well to fill a Quartet spot. He's crying out for a longer trip. Borntoachieve led from a middle gate, cornered a length on top and was yielding ground 100m out. Trillion Treasure was caught off the track near the speed, swung the final bend with three wider out and was only one-paced over the last 150m. No Money No Talk made some ground near the inside following a rail's run in midfield. Choice Treasure was getting going late after travelling second from the rear. Mr Ginger weakened soon after straightening after chasing the speed.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (268)-SHATIN PASS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

SEA RUBY was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (swollen left front cannon).

Before being allowed to race again, SEA RUBY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

MR GINGER began only fairly.

LONGWAH SILENT and BORNTOACHIEVE bumped at the start.

Shortly after the start, LONGWAH SILENT raced tight between BORNTOACHIEVE and TRILLION TREASURE which got its head on the side and lay out.

From wide barriers, GIANT STARS and CHOICE TREASURE were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

FIGHT HERO was left racing wide in the early stages and passing the 1000 Metres was shifted across behind runners to obtain a position with cover closer to the rail.

Making the turn near the 750 Metres, INVENTOR was steadied away from the heels of MR GINGER which, despite the efforts of its rider, got its head on the side and shifted in away from BORNTOACHIEVE which also shifted in at this point.

As there was no rider error involved in this incident, no further action was taken.

Making the turn after the 700 Metres, LONGWAH SILENT was left racing wide and without cover.

When questioned, R Fourie stated that he had been asked to ride INVENTOR positively in the early stages and obtain a positon on the rail if possible.

He said it was felt that INVENTOR would have sufficient speed to cross HIT THE BID which was drawn barrier 1, immediately inside INVENTOR.

He said in accordance with his instructions he rode his mount for some distance in the early stages to clear HIT THE BID, however, that horse began very well and was travelling strongly to his inside.

He said he did not feel it was reasonable to continue to ride INVENTOR along as he did not believe that the horse would have sufficient speed to be able to cross HIT THE BID without having to be ridden aggressively for a significant distance and as such would then not be able to finish off the race.

He said therefore he made the decision to continue racing outside HIT THE BID approaching the 800 Metres.

When questioned regarding his riding of TRILLION TREASURE in the early stages, Y T Cheng stated that he had been asked to ride the horse in the first half of the field but not to push it along in the early stages as the horse had weakened out of the race at its last start when ridden along in the early stages.

He said he was further asked to only allow the horse to use its natural speed to obtain a position in the early stages.

He said in accordance with his instructions he allowed TRILLION TREASURE to take up a forward position when the horse began well.

He said prior to the race he felt the principal speed would come from BORNTOACHIEVE which was racing to the outside of TRILLION TREASURE and his attention in the early stages of the race was directed to that horse.

He said because of this he did not immediately capitalize on the opportunity to shift TRILLION TREASURE across to race outside INVENTOR.

He added MR GINGER was then able to improve its position to be racing inside TRILLION TREASURE prior to the 900 Metres and, as a consequence, TRILLION TREASURE was left racing wide and without cover for the majority of the race.

Y T Cheng was advised that his handling of TRILLION TREASURE had come under notice and that his riding of the horse during this period of the race could have resulted in him being charged with a breach of a significant Rule of Racing.

Y T Cheng was severely reprimanded and advised that he must ensure he rides his mounts in such a manner so that they do not cover unnecessary ground and that he avails himself of the best position available in the prevailing circumstances.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on EXCELLENCE at the request of Trainer A Lee.

The Veterinary Surgeon reported that this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

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

HIT THE BID and GIANT STARS were sent for sampling.
