Recap by phillip woo

Jolly Banner kept up a strong gallop after rolling forward to lead one off the fence from a wide gate at the 1,000m for an impressive win carrying top weight. He's extremely consistent and should remain competitive up in class. Magnetism never looked like catching the winner after pulling out for a clear run at the 250m following a handy run. He had no excuse. Beauty Kingdom stayed on third best after reefing and tearing early on tracking the leading pair one off the fence. He confirmed his preference for the 1,400m following a dull mile run at the Valley. Care Free Prince grudgingly gave way over the final 100m after making the winner work for his win sitting to his outside. He needs to have his own way. Avellino was the only one to really make ground from near the back. He's still a work in progress.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (093)-TIN SHUI WAI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Metres

On arrival at the Start, THE SHOW had its left front plate refitted and subsequently was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said, in his opinion, it was suitable to race.

SUNNY ORIENT began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped LOTUS BREEZE which became unbalanced.

After this, SUNNY ORIENT was shifted across behind runners.

From wide barriers, AVELLINO and TEAM SWEET was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Passing the 1000 Metres, BEAUTY KINGDOM, which was travelling keenly, and CARE FREE PRINCE bumped, resulting in BEAUTY KINGDOM becoming unbalanced an shifting out across the heels of JOLLY BANNER.

BEAUTY KINGDOM was then forced to race wide and without cover throughout the middle stages of the race.

Passing the 700 Metres, AVELLINO commenced to prove difficult to settle and got its head up when racing close to the heels of LANSBURY.

Throughout the race, RAGING BULL and LOTUS BREEZE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of FASHION MAESTRO, Z Purton stated that, as usual, the horse was somewhat reluctant to stretch out in the early stages, however, this did not concern him as FASHION MAESTRO had previously felt that way when able to be successful.

He said in the early stages he shifted FASHION MAESTRO across to race close to the rail and after the 1100 Metres he had to niggle at the horse in an endeavour to have it improve its position as FASHION MAESTRO did not appear to be stretching out.

He said whilst FASHION MAESTRO was momentarily crowded for room near the 600 Metres, the horse was already under some pressure and then in the Straight did not respond to his riding at any stage and it was concerning to him that the horse did not make up any ground.

He said the only explanation he could offer for the disappointing performance was that at its two wins late last season, the horse was positioned outside of runners whereas today FASHION MAESTRO was behind and inside runners and perhaps it may be more comfortable to be ridden outside of other runners.

A veterinary inspection of FASHION MAESTRO immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

The performance of FASHION MAESTRO, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, FASHION MAESTRO 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 LOTUS BREEZE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

JOLLY BANNER and MAGNETISM were sent for sampling.


5 October 2016 Happy Valley Racemeeting - Race 8 (83) The Stewards today questioned Trainer P F Yiu regarding SKY MAN being ridden from off the speed in this race.

Mr Yiu stated that SKY MAN's best form had been over 1000 Metres when ridden in a forward position.

He said as this race was over 1200 Metres and having regard to the horse being drawn 9, he felt that SKY MAN's best opportunity to finish off the race would be by having ridden it more conservatively.

He said he had noted that the pattern of racing earlier in the programme had indicated that horses being ridden on the speed had found it difficult to finish off their races, so he felt that there was an opportunity for SKY MAN to be ridden more patiently in about a midfield position.


Additional Veterinary Reports from Happy Valley Racemeeting on 5 October 2016 Subsequent official veterinary inspections (without endoscopy) of SWEET BEAN, MALAYAN PEARL, FINE ROCK, FLYING MONKEY, VERBINSKY, PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT, SHARP HUNTER, YOURTHEWONFORME, ROYAL PARTNER, SPARKLING SWORD, SOUL ACHIEVER, VICTORY BOYS, NEWSWIRE FREE, TEN FLAMES, THE SYLPH, VICTORY MARVEL, HAPPY SURVEYS and SUPER LEADER revealed no apparent abnormality.
