Recap by phillip woo

Northern Falls easily cleared from a wide gate to lead 1,300m out, cornered near two lengths on top and edged clear for a comprehensive first win at his ninth start to land a betting plunge. Hit The Bid out-finished Green Dispatch three deep for second following a prominent run with cover. Green Dispatch stayed on nicely following a box-seat run to live up to his good overseas form on the gritty surfaces. Gold Dragon finished willingly four deep after travelling second from the rear to snatch a Quartet spot. Majestic Anthem ran on steadily after a deep run behind midfield to make it close for fourth. Dilly was stopping inside the 100m after making his run one off in second. Noble Alpha made some ground without menacing after travelling fourth from the back. Both Lucky came up one paced after easing into the open five deep at the 200m following a three back run along the fence. Midnight Rattler struggled in the run to the wire following a one-off run outside Both Lucky. Vanilla only got by beaten rivals after travelling at the rear from a wide gate. Young Ranger did not lift after settling third from the rear from a wide gate. Industrialist Way weakened tamely despite a relatively comfortable run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (543)-PORT SHELTER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

GOLD DRAGON began only fairly.

YOUNG RANGER lost its left front plate on jumping.

HORSE APLENTY shifted out at the start and bumped DILLY.

After this, HORSE APLENTY was vigorously ridden, however, failed to muster speed.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, MAJESTIC ANTHEM was steadied away from the heels of INDUSTRIALIST WAY which shifted in when barely clear.

Also passing the winning post on the first occasion, BOTH LUCKY and NOBLE ALPHA raced tight inside INDUSTRIALIST WAY.

C Schofield (INDUSTRIALIST WAY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that at the 1400 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of NOBLE ALPHA, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

C Schofield was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 2 May 2016 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 24 April 2016.

In addition, C Schofield was fined $52,500 in lieu of a suspension for a period incorporating 1½ further racedays.

After the 1300 Metres, BOTH LUCKY commenced to prove very difficult to settle and was checked away from the heels of GREEN DISPATCH.

After this, BOTH LUCKY continued to prove difficult to settle.

INDUSTRIALIST WAY lost its right hind plate in the middle stages.

GOLD DRAGON was held up for clear running rounding the Home Turn.

For the majority of the race, MIDNIGHT RATTLER and HAPPY JOURNEY travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of YOUNG RANGER, Z Purton stated that after shifting his mount across behind runners in the early stages, YOUNG RANGER did not travel comfortably at any stage of the race.

He said the horse came off the bridle rounding the turn after the 700 Metres and, despite being vigorously ridden along, did not respond to his riding in the Straight.

He added over the latter stages of the race and after the race YOUNG RANGER did not appear to be comfortable in its action.

A veterinary inspection of YOUNG RANGER immediately following the race found that horse to have sustained a wound to the left hind coronet.

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