Recap by phillip woo

King Bountiful swept to the front 250m out after travelling second from the rear and held off the fast-finishing Blazing Pass for a third win from seven starts over this course and distance. He had been out of form of late but appreciated the softer ground conditions. Blazing Pass was ridden for luck from a wide gate and finished with a flurry down the outside. He likes this Valley trip. Favourite Garlic Yeah stayed on well near the inside after getting shuffled back to have only three behind him coming to the final bend to fill a placing. He looks like he has the tools to add to two recent wins when he steps out over 1,800m to 2,200m. Allcash plugged on without looking a threat despite a prominent run with cover. He's still a maiden but certainly is in the right grade now. Industrialist Way did have to work a bit to find the front from a wide gate and didn't have much left in the tank upon straightening after being headed by Bo Duke 750m out. He's better over the 1,800m and needs a claimer's allowance. Premium Champion ran on late after travelling behind midfield. He's better suited at Sha Tin over the 2,000m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (600)-DAEJEON HANDICAP - Class 4 - 2200Metres

BO DUKE began awkwardly.

GARLIC YEAH shifted out on jumping and bumped AMAZING GOLD.

Shortly after the start, AUTUMN GOLD and HAPPY ROCKY bumped.

From the outside barriers, KING BOUNTIFUL and BLAZING PASS were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

C Schofield (GARLIC YEAH) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that in the vicinity to the 2100 Metres, he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of ALLCASH, resulting in that horse being taken in onto HAPPY ROCKY which in turn was taken in onto AUTUMN GOLD, causing AUTUMN GOLD to be crowded onto PREMIUM CHAMPION which was checked and lost the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

C Schofield was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 17 May 2017 and to expire on Monday, 22 May 2017 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

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

Passing the 900 Metres, AUTUMN GOLD was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GARLIC YEAH.

Passing the 600 Metres, AUTUMN GOLD was awkwardly placed when attempting to improve into tight running between ALLCASH and KING BOUNTIFUL.

AUTUMN GOLD then raced tight between GARLIC YEAH and KING BOUNTIFUL.

PREMIUM CHAMPION, which was following, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of GARLIC YEAH.

Passing the 500 Metres, ALLCASH and AMAZING GOLD raced tight as ALLCASH attempted to improve to the outside of HAPPY ROCKY.

Approaching the Home Turn, ALLCASH (J Moreira) commenced to shift to the outside of HAPPY ROCKY and raced tight with AMAZING GOLD.

Then passing the 400 Metres, AMAZING GOLD was awkwardly placed close to the heels of ALLCASH and KING BOUNTIFUL which improved quickly around AMAZING GOLD.

AUTUMN GOLD was shifted out away from the heels of AMAZING GOLD in consequence, resulting in PREMIUM CHAMPION and BLAZING PASS being taken wider.

As the Stewards were satisfied that J Moreira was entitled to initially commence to shift to the outside of HAPPY ROCKY given that KING BOUNTIFUL was behind AMAZING GOLD at that time, no further action was deemed necessary as they were of the view that when J Moreira became aware that KING BOUNTIFUL was improving to the outside of AMAZING GOLD, he desisted from continuing to improve to the outside of HAPPY ROCKY.

AUTUMN GOLD and PREMIUM CHAMPION bumped at the entrance to the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPY ROCKY and INDUSTRIALIST WAY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of AUTUMN GOLD immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, AUTUMN GOLD will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GARLIC YEAH, KING BOUNTIFUL and BLAZING PASS were sent for sampling.
