Recap by phillip woo

Dashing King settled one off the fence in fourth, rushed to the lead four deep at the 250m and kept finding to make it back-to-back following a step to a mile. Giant Stars settled third from the rear, peeled out for a clear run six deep approaching the 200m and finished willingly to grab second in the final few metres. He's ready to win. Well-punted late, Happy Spirit grudgingly gave way after working to the front 260m out following a pacestalking run. Foodie settled one off in midfield, loomed a winning chance three deep at the 200m and came up one-paced over the last 100m. Little Island saved ground fore of midfield, straightened three and only held his ground in the run to the wire. Ka Ying Kid did make up heaps of ground four deep after travelling at the tail of the field. Heroic Guru ran on well with one wider out without menacing after making his run third from the rear. Red Marvel was prominent in the run along the fence, peeled off a tiring Looks Like The Cat at the 250m and came up flat when asked for an effort. The Show was never a factor after travelling deep near the back from a wide gate. Looks Like The Cat was stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (471)-ARSENAL HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

PACKING DRAGON was withdrawn on 7.3.16 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (right fore tendon injury) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter LITTLE ISLAND.

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

LOOKS LIKE THE CAT began awkwardly.

GIANT STARS began only fairly.

HAPPY SPIRIT began awkwardly and shortly after the start shifted in and bumped ABLE DEED.

After initially being ridden along in the early stages, THE SHOW was left racing wide passing the winning post on the first occasion and was steadied to obtain a position with cover.

Then after the 900 Metres, THE SHOW was left racing wide and without cover.

LOOKS LIKE THE CAT travelled keenly in the lead and in the Straight gave ground.

N Rawiller (HEROIC GURU) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 450 Metres he directed his mount out when not clear of THE SHOW, causing both horses to make heavy contact and for THE SHOW to be badly hampered.

N Rawiller was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 24 March 2016 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 13 March 2016.

Rounding the Home Turn, THE SHOW became unbalanced when bumped on two occasions by HEROIC GURU which shifted out after initially being taken out by TRENDY WIN which improved to the outside of FOODIE.

In this incident, HEROIC GURU also became unbalanced due to the contact with THE SHOW.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that after obtaining a good run throughout the race, RED MARVEL was badly held up for clear running rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight when LOOKS LIKE THE CAT, which had been leading, commenced to weaken back through the field.

He said it was not until near the 250 Metres that RED MARVEL was able to obtain clear running, however, by this time the horse had lost its momentum.

He said whilst RED MARVEL may have appeared somewhat disappointing after its failure to close off the race strongly, he felt that RED MARVEL's run was better than it appeared as the horse was not able to pick up after losing momentum rounding the turn.

A veterinary inspection of RED MARVEL immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

When questioned, Y T Cheng stated that as ABLE DEED was racing over 1650 Metres at Happy Valley for the first time, he had been asked to ensure that he obtained cover on the horse.

He said it was hoped that ABLE DEED would be able to obtain a position in about midfield or just slightly worse than midfield.

He said in accordance with his instructions he steadied ABLE DEED in the early stages to take up a trailing position behind HEROIC GURU which was then steadied which resulted in ABLE DEED racing slightly further back than had been intended.

He added it was stressed to him that ABLE DEED should obtain cover in the race as this would afford the horse the best opportunity to finish off.

The Stewards will interview Trainer J Moore at the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 13 March 2016 regarding the instructions given to Jockey Cheng.

A veterinary inspection of LOOKS LIKE THE CAT and TRENDY WIN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

RED MARVEL, DASHING KING and GIANT STARS were sent for sampling.
