Recap by phillip woo

Second-time starter Navas lived up to some improved trackwork to get up 100m out following a box-seat run. He'll improve for the run and does have a bright future. Happy Bao Bei sat on the back of the leader Outlawed and wore that one down late for second. He keeps running honest races but always seems to find one or a few too good. Outlawed wouldn't go down without a fight after pressing forward to lead from a wide gate. It was only his second run back following a lengthy injury-induced absence and he won't be far off a winning run if he stays healthy. Favourite Hang's Decision just got up late from behind midfield to snare fourth. It was a vastly-improved run by Balay Balay who finished well from midfield though he was suited by the softer ground conditions.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (120)-TAI TAM HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 3 - 1200Metres

PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT shifted out at the start, resulting in SWEET HOME and EXPEDITE being hampered.

Shortly after the start, HANG'S DECISION shifted out and bumped OUTLAWED, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

From wide barriers, GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS and BOTH LUCKY were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, EXPEDITE raced in restricted room inside GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS which got its head on the side and lay in towards the heels of SWEET HOME.

In the middle stages, PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT travelled keenly.

Passing the 500 Metres, PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT shifted out away from the heels of HAPPY BAO BEI when continuing to travel keenly.

Passing the 300 Metres, NAVAS momentarily raced tight inside HAPPY BAO BEI which shifted in.

For some distance after the 200 Metres, BALAY BALAY and SWEET HOME raced tight.

Approaching the 50 Metres, SWEET HOME and PRESIDENTPARAMOUNT raced tight between BALAY BALAY and HANG'S DECISION which shifted in abruptly before being corrected by its rider.

Then over the concluding stages, HANG'S DECISION raced with its head on the side and lay in.

When questioned, S Clipperton explained that he had been asked to ride NUMERO UNO in a forward position if the horse began well, however, if it did not begin well as it had done in some of its races in the past, he should take the horse across behind runners and obtain a position with cover.

He said after being placed in the barriers, NUMERO UNO became fractious and wanted to get its head down on a number of occasions.

He said as a consequence NUMERO UNO then began only fairly and, from the wide barrier, he believed that he would have had to do too much work to obtain a forward position and therefore, in accordance with his instructions, he elected to take NUMERO UNO across behind runners to a position closer to the rail making the first turn.

A veterinary inspection of BOTH LUCKY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of IMPERIAL FIGHTER immediately following the race found that horse to have bled from both nostrils.

HANG'S DECISION, NAVAS and HAPPY BAO BEI were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

3.

As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 3 being run on a track rated "Good to Yielding".

4.

After the running of Race 7, the track classification was officially changed from "Good to Yielding" to "Good".

16 October 2016 Sha Tin Racemeeting - Race 7 (108) The Stewards tonight afforded J Moreira the opportunity to explain the disappointing performance of EASY HEDGE.

J Moreira stated that, from a wide barrier, he had to make more use of EASY HEDGE than was anticipated in an endeavour to clear runners to his inside.

He said after the 1600 Metres he was left racing wide outside RAZOR QUEST and this necessitated him again having to ride EASY HEDGE along in an endeavour to cross that horse.

He said when he was not able to clear RAZOR QUEST and that horse was able to maintain its position, he steadied EASY HEDGE approaching the 1100 Metres and was able to obtain a trailing position behind that horse albeit three wide.

He added rounding the Home Turn he was taken very wide as he could not continue to follow RAZOR QUEST as that horse was commencing to give ground.

He said, in all the circumstances, he believed that the run of EASY HEDGE was better than it looked.
