Recap by phillip woo

Chater Legend jumped well to settle in a prominent spot along the fence before responding nicely under pressure to wear down Wisky in the final few metres for a second win this term. He rarely runs a bad race over this Valley trip and might surprise a few off a light weight in a higher grade. Wisky rushed to the front 250m out after setting one off in third from a wide gate and kept on gamely to just miss off a light weight. Off this run, he won't be far off a winning performance at this level. Litterateur dashed late down the outside after travelling fourth from the rear to spice up the exotics in a vastly-improved effort in cheek pieces and return to the turf at his eighth run. He'll need to prove this run was no fluke. Land Grant got going 500m out following a handy run and just failed to place. On his past two performances, he's near a bottom. Favourite Jade Fortune only plodded inside the last 150m after being ridden along to sit outside the leader from a tricky gate. It's not the way to ride him and he can be forgiven for this run. Thunder Stomp came up one-paced over the last 150m after trying to get going after a deep run beyond midfield. He covered too much ground.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (588)-SO KON PO HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Metres

At declaration time, Z Purton was declared as the rider of both JADE FORTUNE and PHOTON WILLIE.

It was established that Z Purton had a firm commitment to ride JADE FORTUNE.

As such, the Stewards permitted K Teetan to be substituted as the rider of PHOTON WILLIE.

For this declaration error, Trainer P O??Sullivan was fined $2,000.

FANTASTIC KAKA began only fairly and then lost ground when crowded for room between MY GIFT and YOUNG RANGER which shifted out.

From the outside barriers, PHOTON WILLIE and HERO LOOK were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

LITTERATEUR was also steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Passing the 1400 Metres, FANTASTIC KAKA commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CHATER LEGEND.

YOUNG RANGER lost its right front plate approaching the winning position on the first occasion.

Near the 650 Metres, LAND GRANT was taken wider by WISKY which shifted to the outside of JADE FORTUNE.

After this, LAND GRANT travelled wide and without cover.

YOUNG RANGER made the Home Turn awkwardly.

At the entrance to the Straight, CHATER LEGEND shifted out and brushed LAND GRANT.

Also at the entrance to the Straight, YOUNG RANGER was directed in away from the heels of WISKY.

Approaching the 100 Metres, PHOTON WILLIE was directed out away from the heels of YOUNG RANGER to continue improving.

In the Straight, LAND GRANT lay in under pressure and passing the 100 Metres was awkwardly placed outside the heels of CHATER LEGEND when proving difficult to ride.

When questioned, H W Lai stated that he had been asked to ride THUNDER STOMP in about a midfield position with cover.

He said it was felt that there were a number of horses that would be ridden up on the speed and were he to ride THUNDER STOMP positively, that horse may be left racing wide.

He said in accordance with his instructions he steadied THUNDER STOMP in the early stages as LAND GRANT, which was racing directly to the inside of THUNDER STOMP, was being ridden along to obtain a forward position.

He said as he shifted across to race behind LAND GRANT, MY GIFT maintained its position one horse off the rail, resulting in THUNDER STOMP being left racing three wide.

He said he then steadied THUNDER STOMP further with a view to shifting in behind MY GIFT as he felt that he may be able to manoeuvre LITTERATEUR closer to the rail to allow THUNDER STOMP to obtain cover one horse off the rail behind MY GIFT.

He said however that LITTERATEUR maintained its position one horse off the rail and this resulted in THUNDER STOMP initially being very awkward on the heels of MY GIFT and then being left racing in a three wide position and much further back in the field that had been intended.

Prior to concluding this matter, the Stewards will interview Mr Y S Tsui, the trainer of THUNDER STOMP, prior to the Sha Tin racemeeting to be conducted on Sunday, 23 April 2017.

A veterinary inspection of THUNDER STOMP immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that PHOTON WILLIE was lame in its left front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, PHOTON WILLIE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of FANTASTIC KAKA and AGREE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

JADE FORTUNE, CHATER LEGEND and WISKY were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

After the running of Race 2, the track classification was officially changed from "Good" to "Good to Firm".

This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective.

As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 2 being run on a track rated "Good to Firm".
