Recap by phillip woo

Punted late Grade One raced his way to the lead 150m out after barging his way out at the 320m following a handy run and kept on nicely thereafter for a maiden win at his eighth start and best on this surface despite an injury setback in June. He didn't beat much but might have a bit more improvement in him and does handle both surfaces. Raging favourite Flying Noble came on nicely one from the right after travelling fore of midfield to come home a clear second to live up to a solid lead-up trial. He's headed in the right direction now and will be winning shortly. Tourbillon King held on for a placing after finding his way to the lead from a wide gate. He didn't have much behind him and fitness edge on most rivals. My Honey made ground from near last to add some value to the Quartet in a vastly-improved effort at his third start. He still needs more time. Plunged late Paddington rallied well widest out without menacing after travelling third.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (73) - CHENGDU HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

After beginning only fairly, FANTASTIC SHOW was slow to muster speed.

Near the 1000 Metres, PADDINGTON was steadied away from the heels of FLYING NOBLE which was also steadied and shifted in to obtain cover behind MULTIMAX.

Approaching the finishing line, MY HONEY and PADDINGTON made contact.

S Clipperton (GRADE ONE) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 350 Metres he directed his mount out around the heels of NONE OTHER and in so doing bumped MULTIMAX which resulted in that horse becoming unbalanced, shifting out and bumping the hindquarters of FLYING NOBLE which in turn became unbalanced and then lay in despite the efforts of its rider, resulting in MULTIMAX being severely checked when buffeted for room between GRADE ONE and FLYING NOBLE.

In this incident, GRADE ONE also became unbalanced due to making contact with MULTIMAX on several occasions.

S Clipperton was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 18 October 2017 and to expire on Monday, 23 October 2017 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, S Clipperton was fined $15,000.

Throughout the race, NONE OTHER travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of MULTIMAX and NONE OTHER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GRADE ONE and FLYING NOBLE were sent for sampling.
