Recap by phillip woo

Enormous Honour finished well to get up in the final few metres after hugging the fence following a patient ride fourth from the rear from a wide gate for a maiden win after placing in 11 of 23 other starts. The softer ground conditions were in his favour. Early favourite Beauty Prince was given a lovely ride to find a midfield spot but found one too good after racing to the front 250m out in another solid run over this Valley trip. Joao Moreira did very well to land a spot on the fence beyond midfield from a wide gate on Red Marvel and just failed to get up when coming in contact with the top pair in deep stretch. He's likely hit a bottom and won't be far off a winning run over this trip. Nitro Express finished nicely near the outside after a patient ride third from the rear. Though he was a last-start winner at a mile, a future step to 1,800m may suit as well. Mambo Rock made up noticeable ground widest out after travelling one from the back in an improved second-up performance this term with a step up in distance in his Valley debut. At three years of age, he has scope for improvement and should get further than a mile when fully mature.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (209)-HUNG HOM HANDICAP (Sec1) - Class 3 - 1650Metres

MISSION POSSIBLE was withdrawn on 22.11.16 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter GRACE HEART (S Clipperton).

Before being allowed to race again, MISSION POSSIBLE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GRACE HEART shifted out on jumping and bumped CHARITY KINGDOM.

BEAUTY PRINCE was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

From the outside barriers, RED MARVEL and MAMBO ROCK were also steadied shortly after the start and shifted across behind runners.

O Murphy (INDUSTRIALIST WAY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 950 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of CHARITY KINGDOM, causing that horse to be crowded for room, to clip the heels of INDUSTRIALIST WAY and be checked.

O Murphy was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 7 December 2016 and to expire on Monday, 12 December 2016 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into account Jockey Murphy's good race riding record.

After the 600 Metres, CALIFORNIA JOY got its head on the side and lay out.

INDUSTRIALIST WAY improved its position to be racing tight inside the heels of CALIFORNIA JOY and outside BEAUTY PRINCE.

INDUSTRIALIST WAY then raced in restricted room between BEAUTY PRINCE and CALIFORNIA JOY for some distance.

At the entrance to the Straight, CHARITY KINGDOM was steadied when disappointed for running between INDUSTRIALIST WAY and NITRO EXPRESS which shifted in.

Passing the 300 Metres, RED MARVEL was shifted in away from the heels of GRACE HEART which, when commencing to give ground, momentarily raced tight inside WINSTON'S LAD which shifted in.

Passing the 150 Metres, RED MARVEL and ENORMOUS HONOUR improved into tight running inside BEAUTY PRINCE (Z Purton).

Then passing the 100 Metres, BEAUTY PRINCE shifted in marginally, resulting in RED MARVEL shifting in and bumping ENORMOUS HONOUR, causing that horse to become badly unbalanced and shift out, resulting in RED MARVEL being crowded for room between BEAUTY PRINCE and ENORMOUS HONOUR passing the 50 Metres.

As the Stewards found that BEAUTY PRINCE had only shifted in marginally under pressure, Z Purton was reprimanded and advised that in similar circumstances he must make every endeavour to ensure that his fellow riders have comfortable racing room.

Passing the 100 Metres, INDUSTRIALIST WAY was shifted in away from the heels of WINSTON'S LAD to continue improving.

A veterinary inspection of TRENDY WIN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of TRENDY WIN, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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