Recap by phillip woo

Marvel Tribe settled one off in second, rushed to the lead four deep at the 200m and drew clear for a convincing win following a stable change. Flying Moochi eventually emerged with the lead from an inside gate, cornered a length on top and found one too smart on the day. The Full Bloom came on nicely five deep from the rear of the field to grab a placing in an encouraging debut. He'll likely come on for this run and is a better prospect over 1,400m. Newcomer Mr Potential was another to catch the eye when finished nicely with one wider out following a patient ride second from the rear from a wide gate to fill a Quartet spot. He's a good looking sort and looks a nice money spinner at a mile and under. Lucky Day made some ground near the inside after settling third from the rear. Fresh with blinkers on, Colossus was only one-paced following a handy run with cover. Punted late, Happy Cooperation weakened after four deep run without cover near the speed. Racing Mate never fired after travelling one off the fence behind midfield despite a tonne of money for him late. First-time starter and favourite Arizona Blizzard dropped out after travelling keenly deep without outside the leading pair.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (626)-THE LI CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

From wide barriers, THE FULL BLOOM and MR POTENTIAL were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, HAPPY COOPERATION was unable to cross into the lead and was obliged to race four wide and without cover throughout the race.

HAPPY COOPERATION also became badly unbalanced when bumped by ARIZONA BLIZZARD on the first turn after the 900 Metres and consequently weakened in the Straight.

Apprentice K K Chiong (MARVEL TRIBE) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 1100 Metres she permitted her mount to shift in when not clear of RACING MATE, causing that horse to be hampered and taken in across the rightful running of RAINBOW FIGHTER which was checked.

Apprentice Chiong was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 6 June 2016 on which day she may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 29 May 2016.

In addition, Apprentice Chiong was fined $7,500.

Passing the 300 Metres, MR POTENTIAL was shifted out away from HAPPY COOPERATION which was weakening.

After the race, K Teetan reported that in the middle stages the bit pulled through CLASSIER's mouth which caused him some inconvenience for the remainder of the race.

When questioned, J Moreira stated that ARIZONA BLIZZARD, which was having its first race start in Hong Kong, sweated up and became quite nervous in the Parade Ring prior to the race and also became fractious once loaded in the barriers.

He said after beginning fairly, he rode the horse along in order to take up a forward position, however, approaching the first turn ARIZONA BLIZZARD got its head on the side, hung out and bumped heavily with HAPPY COOPERATION and as a consequence became unbalanced.

He added ARIZONA BLIZZARD continued to hang out throughout the middle stages and then compounded badly in the Straight.

He further stated that, in his view, ARIZONA BLIZZARD's poor performance could be attributed to its inexperience and its fractious nature before the race.

A veterinary inspection of ARIZONA BLIZZARD immediately following the race revealed the horse to be displaying post-race distress.

The performance of ARIZONA BLIZZARD was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, ARIZONA BLIZZARD will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of RACING MATE and HAPPY COOPERATION immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
