Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Cheerfuljet responded well to take control 80m out from the loose-onthe- lead Peace On Earth for a first win from five starts. He relished a return to the Valley with Zac Purton hopping back on board and there's still another win in him. Starlot came on well from midfield to finish a clear second. He built on a last-start win and appears to have points in hand over this Valley trip. Peace On Earth led easily from a wide gate and wouldn't go away without a fight. He's run a lot better in his past two of three starts following a lengthy layoff and doesn't look far off a winning run in this grade of down in Class Five. Post-time favourite Showing Character had his chance following a box-seat run. It wasn't a bad effort but the quick back-up likely worked against him following a season debut second last Wednesday. Confucius Spirit made only a minor bid following a rail run in midfield. He's does have much upside if any following a last-start win.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (231) - KOWLOON CITY HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

EASTERN PROWESS and HOUSE OF LUCK were crowded for room on jumping between CHEERFULJET and STARLOT which got its head on the side and shifted in when being ridden along.

HURRICANE HUNTER and SO GENEROUS bumped at the start.

Then from a wide barrier, SO GENEROUS was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

From the outside barrier, NOBLE DE BOY was also steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners in an attempt to obtain cover, however, for the majority of the race travelled wide and without cover.

Apprentice M F Poon (PEACE ON EARTH) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1150 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of STARLOT, causing that horse to be hampered and taken across the rightful running of EASTERN PROWESS which was checked and blundered.

Further, he permitted his mount to shift in near the 1100 Metres when not clear of CHEERFULJET, resulting in that horse being hampered when bumped by PEACE ON EARTH and in turn shifting in onto SHOWING CHARACTER, causing that horse to be badly hampered.

In this incident, HAPPY WARRIOR was also hampered when crowded for room inside SHOWING CHARACTER.

Apprentice Poon was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 6 December 2017 and to expire on Monday, 11 December 2017 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, Apprentice Poon was fined $30,000.

Making the turn near the 1000 Metres, EASTERN PROWESS got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of HOUSE OF LUCK.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, HOUSE OF LUCK was awkwardly placed inside the heels of HAPPY WARRIOR.

When questioned, Apprentice M F Poon stated that he was asked to ride PEACE ON EARTH positively from its awkward draw and obtain a position with cover and it was hoped that the horse would be able to obtain a position in advance of midfield or behind the leaders.

He said in accordance with his instructions he rode his mount positively in the early stages but did not have to ride it aggressively to do so.

He said due to the circumstances of the race in the early stages he was left racing to the outside of CHEERFULJET in a much more forward position than had been envisaged.

He said after the 1000 Metres CHEERFULJET was steadied by its rider, therefore he allowed PEACE ON EARTH to continue to shift over towards the rail.

He said PEACE ON EARTH travelled keenly in the lead and he attempted to steady the horse without fighting against it.

He said although PEACE ON EARTH opened up somewhat of a margin over the remainder of the field, he did not believe the pace was fast at this time but in any event he was not able to do any more to steady PEACE ON EARTH back towards the field due to the horse travelling keenly in the lead.

A veterinary inspection of FUNNY BUDDIES 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, FUNNY BUDDIES will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SHOWING CHARACTER, CHEERFULJET and STARLOT were sent for sampling.
