Recap by phillip woo

Outsider Rickfield took off mid-race to sit second coming to the final bend, assumed the front 200m out and edged clear for a first win at his eighth start following an unacceptable effort in September. He'll need to prove this run was not a fluke. Sharp Sailor rallied well from midfield to just grab second from Sky King but was no match for the winner. It was another good run this term despite a big weight for his new trainer this term and he might have the tools to win another before season's end. Sky King had every chance following a box-seat run. He didn't quite see out the trip and is better over the mile on either surface. Jolly Gene was on his tippy toes 150m out after clearing to the front 1,500m out. He isn't far off a bottom. McQueen made some ground without menacing travelling worse than midfield. He's in the right grade but the big weight did not help. Favourite Easy Hedge was shuffled back to midfield by the retreating Indigenous Union at the 600m but came up empty when push came to shove. He's not genuine. Magnetism made some ground without menacing after travelling three deep behind midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (425)-SING WOO HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Metres

SHARP SAILOR was hampered on jumping when SKY KING shifted in.

From a wide barrier, AMAZING GOLD was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, SHARP SAILOR and MCQUEEN raced tight inside LITTLE ISLAND which was then shifted out to relieve the tightening.

After this, LITTLE ISLAND travelled wide and without cover until near the 500 Metres and in the Straight gave ground.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, RICKFIELD raced tight between JOYFUL PARK and MAGNETISM which shifted in.

In this incident, RICKFIELD bumped the hindquarters of JOYFUL PARK.

Near the 1100 Metres, RICKFIELD got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of MCQUEEN.

INDIGENOUS UNION gave ground abruptly from the 600 Metres before finishing tailed out.

A veterinary inspection of INDIGENOUS UNION immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being allowed to race again, INDIGENOUS UNION will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

N Rawiller (SHARP SAILOR) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 400 Metres he permitted his mount to shift out when not clear of LITTLE ISLAND, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

EASY HEDGE, which was following LITTLE ISLAND, was hampered in consequence.

When LITTLE ISLAND was checked, that horse shifted out, resulting in MAGNETISM being taken wider.

N Rawiller was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 1 March 2017 and to expire on Thursday, 9 March 2017 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, N Rawiller was fined $100,000.

After the race, M L Yeung (JOYFUL PARK) informed the Stewards that his whip became entangled in the reins for some distance approaching and passing the 200 Metres which placed him at a disadvantage in riding his mount out.

A review of the video confirmed Jockey Yeung's report.

The Stewards opened an inquiry into C Schofield's handling of AMBITIOUS PINS.

After taking evidence from Jockey Schofield, the Stewards adjourned the matter until a date to be fixed at which time further evidence will be taken from C Schofield and evidence will be taken from Mr R Gibson, the trainer of AMBITIOUS PINS, who was not on course for this race.

A veterinary inspection of LITTLE ISLAND and AMBITIOUS PINS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

EASY HEDGE, RICKFIELD and SHARP SAILOR were sent for sampling.
