Recap by phillip woo

Ace King was fortunate to run down Beauty Master close to home from midfield after that one stumbled and broke down close to home. He's perfect in two rides under Nash Rawiller and always a chance over this Sha Tin trip. Favourite Beauty Master looked the winner after reclaiming the front from Peace N Prosperity 350m out travelling on the stands side prior to his demise inside the last 50m. Money Boy stayed on well following a handy run to fill a placing. He's honest but is on his mark. Royal Mojito finished full of run from the rear of the field to give the Quartet some value. He's starting to get the hang of things. Turf Sprint was held up travelling fore of midfield until the last 120m. He's not reliable but should have gone closer. Saul's Special peaked on his run 100m out after sitting handy near the far side carrying top weight. Super Junior struggled 150m out after travelling far side on his lonesome near the speed from gate one. He's capable of better.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (116) - WORLD HAKKA CAPITAL HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Meters

CALIFORNIA ARCHER was withdrawn on 13.10.17 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter WINNING SUPREME (Apprentice H T Mo).

Before being allowed to race again, CALIFORNIA ARCHER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After being loaded into the barriers, WINNING SUPREME became very fractious, reared and momentarily sat down.

WINNING SUPREME was removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

Before being allowed to race again, WINNING SUPREME will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

MEGA TREASURE was crowded for room on jumping between SAUL'S SPECIAL which shifted out and FORTUNE BO BO which shifted in after beginning only fairly.

In this incident, FORTUNE BO BO became badly unbalanced and shifted out and in doing so bumped the hindquarters of LEAN AMBASSADOR.

ROYAL MOJITO was slow to begin.

In the early stages, ULTIMATE DREAM was steadied and shifted across behind runners towards the outside rail.

Near the 450 Metres, PEACE N PROSPERITY shifted in and bumped FORTUNE BO BO.

TURF SPRINT was unable to obtain clear running from the 400 Metres until near the 150 Metres and then over the concluding stages was shifted in away from the heels of SAUL'S SPECIAL when that horse was taken in by ROYAL MOJITO.

Because of this, TURF SPRINT was not able to be properly tested.

Passing the 100 Metres, FORTUNE BO BO was steadied when crowded for room between SAUL'S SPECIAL which was laying out under pressure and ROYAL MOJITO which, when shifting to the inside of MONEY BOY to obtain clear running, was then required to shift further as a result of MONEY BOY being taken in by ACE KING.

Passing the 50 Metres, BEAUTY MASTER went amiss in the left front leg, resulting in the horse being eased down.

When questioned, Mr T P Yung, the trainer of both FORTUNE BO BO (Apprentice H N Wong) and SUPER JUNIOR (K C Leung), stated that he is of the view that both horses and in particular FORTUNE BO BO perform best when able to race close to a rail.

He said there had been occasions that FORTUNE BO BO had performed disappointingly when obliged to race away from the rail and as both horses had drawn towards the inside, particularly SUPER JUNIOR, which drew barrier 1 and with the rail in the C position, he asked both Apprentice Wong and K C Leung to race close to the inside rail.

He said SUPER JUNIOR and FORTUNE BO BO generally race up on the speed and given the makeup of the field of today's race and the fact that both horses had drawn inside gates, he believed that it would not be possible for FORTUNE BO BO and SUPER JUNIOR to clear horses drawn closer to the outside rail and therefore both horses would be obliged to race towards the centre of the track.

He said he did not believe this would be in the best interests of either horse given their previous racing history and given the rail in the C position, this would provide the opportunity to race on the inside rail.

Apprentice Wong confirmed that he had been asked to shift FORTUNE BO BO across from barrier 6 towards the inside rail and lead if possible as FORTUNE BO BO had previously led in a number of its races.

He stated that FORTUNE BO BO did not begin well and became unbalanced at the start which resulted in him having to ride along for a considerable distance in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

He said approaching the 900 Metres he turned FORTUNE BO BO's head inwards in an attempt to have it shift towards the inside rail, however, the horse was reluctant to shift in and at this time SAUL'S SPECIAL was able to shift across to race inside FORTUNE BO BO and because of this he was then not able to shift in any further.

He said he therefore took the initiative to continue towards the outside rail which, while being in contrary to his instructions, was in his opinion the best option for the horse given the circumstances of the race in the early stages.

K C Leung also confirmed the instructions given to him by Mr Yung.

He said in accordance with his instructions he held a straight line after the start as he was already positioned near the inside rail having drawn barrier 1.

He said he expected FORTUNE BO BO to shift across towards the inside rail as he had been asked to obtain a position with cover behind that horse given that FORTUNE BO BO had shown more speed than SUPER JUNIOR in its races.

He said when FORTUNE BO BO did not shift towards the inside rail, he continued to race closer to the inside rail albeit he allowed SUPER JUNIOR to gradually drift more towards the centre of the track.

Mr Yung confirmed that he had advised both sets of connections of the tactics to be adopted in today's race and the reason for SUPER JUNIOR to take a trailing position behind FORTUNE BO BO was that he is of the opinion that FORTUNE BO BO has more pace than SUPER JUNIOR and therefore he felt that that horse would be able to cross SUPER JUNIOR without having to make too much use of the horse.

The Stewards informed Mr Yung that they would review the previous races of both FORTUNE BO BO and SUPER JUNIOR before deciding on the most appropriate way for the matter to proceed.

After the race, both O Doleuze (SAUL'S SPECIAL) and T Berry (PEACE N PROSPERITY) reported that their mounts did not feel comfortable in today's race, particularly over the latter stages.

A veterinary inspection of SAUL'S SPECIAL and PEACE N PROSPERITY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, C Schofield was not able to offer any explanation for the performance of TRAVEL EMPEROR.

He said the horse travelled satisfactorily, however, when placed under pressure did not respond to his riding and was disappointing.

A veterinary inspection of TRAVEL EMPEROR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of FORTUNE BO BO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ACE KING was sent for sampling.

Samples were also taken from BEAUTY MASTER.
