Recap by phillip woo

Consistent relished a return to the dirt and riding change to Joao Moreira to run down Sledge Hammer in the shadows of the post after travelling fourth from the rear for a first win from 12 starts. The dirt appears to be his meal ticket and the mile might not trouble him. Sledge Hammer emerged from a five-horse tussle with the lead and wouldn't go down without a fight in a solid first run for his new trainer. It may pay to follow up on him in a dirt sprint. Plenty Of Speed finished well travelling around midfield to get up late for a placing in his first run on the surface. He won over 1,400m last season and the step to a mile on the dirt may suit. Intellectual Glide ran another honest race but wasn't good enough. Favourite Flying Captain was weak after tracking the speed. Planet Giant missed the kick and never involved.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (121)-PARMIGIANI EXCELLENT HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1200Metres

DYNAMIC VOYAGE was withdrawn on 22.10.16 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter GOLDEN GUNNERS (Apprentice K K Chiong).

Before being allowed to race again, DYNAMIC VOYAGE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SLEDGE HAMMER began only fairly.

Shortly after the start, INTELLECTUAL GLIDE was steadied and shifted across behind runners.

Also shortly after the start, PARENTAL SPIRIT shifted in and bumped STARRY STARLIES.

Despite being vigorously ridden in the early stages, PLANET GIANT failed to muster speed and then was checked shortly after the start.

Apprentice H T Mo (ORIENTAL FANTASIA) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1100 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of PLANET GIANT, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

Apprentice Mo was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Saturday, 12 November 2016 and to expire on Monday, 21 November 2016 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

During this period, there are two racemeetings scheduled to be conducted at Sha Tin Racecourse.

After attempting to improve between MIGHTY GAINS and GOLDEN GUNNERS where there was insufficient room for some distance in the early part of the Straight, STARRY STARLIES was steadied and shifted to the inside of MIGHTY GAINS when unable to improve.

Throughout the race, MIGHTY GAINS, GOLDEN GUNNERS and ORIENTAL FANTASIA travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of FLYING CAPTAIN, O Doleuze stated that with MIGHTY GAINS racing to the outside of FLYING CAPTAIN in the early and middle stages, FLYING CAPTAIN did not relax and then, making the turn after the 700 Metres, got its head on the side and lay out.

He said FLYING CAPTAIN had trialed on two occasions in the lead up to today's race and on the most recent occasion it trialed without blinkers.

He said having in mind the manner in which FLYING CAPTAIN travelled keenly today, he did suggest to connections that they consider removing the blinkers from FLYING CAPTAIN in its future starts to see whether it will relax better in its races.

A veterinary inspection of FLYING CAPTAIN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that ORIENTAL FANTASIA had sustained a wound to the inside of the right hind cannon.

A veterinary inspection of PLANET GIANT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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