Recap by phillip woo

Don't Miss was nicely rated on the lead and just held off Thunder Stomp over the last 50m to ring up a fourth course-and-distance win this term. Thunder Stomp stayed on well to just miss following prominent run on the fence. He doesn't know how to run bad races over this Valley trip. Sleep Education came on well from near the back to add value to the tierce. He's improved to place once at each track following a step up to the mile and bottom is near. Har Har Heart just failed to place following a one-off run in midfield. He's a specialist over this Valley trip but doesn't have much upside off his current mark. High Volatility gradually faded after chasing the leader. The Valley mile is his trip but he requires ratings relief. Favourite Sam's Love made only a mild bid from near the back after getting squeezed out at the jump. He had excuses but do prefer him at Sha Tin. Intrepic had trouble staying in touch at the back under the whip and finished eased down.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (759) - CHEUNG CHAU HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Meters

MULTI FACETS was withdrawn on 26.6.18 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter HAR HAR HEART (K Teetan).

Before being allowed to race again, MULTI FACETS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SAM'S LOVE was bumped heavily at the start by CHEERFUL BOY which, after beginning awkwardly, shifted in abruptly.

From wide barriers, INTREPIC, HANG'S DECISION and SLEEP EDUCATION were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, SAM'S LOVE momentarily raced in restricted room between THE JUDGE and HANG'S DECISION which got its head on the side and shifted in.

When being directed out to alleviate the tightening to SAM'S LOVE, HANG'S DECISION and INTREPIC bumped.

Approaching the 1300 Metres, MCMUNIGAL was momentarily crowded for room inside HIGH VOLATILITY (T H So) which shifted in before being directed out abruptly to relieve the tightening to MCMUNIGAL.

T H So was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is properly clear when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

In this incident, HAR HAR HEART, which was racing to the inside of MCMUNIGAL, was bumped by HAPPY SPIRIT which shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of THUNDER STOMP.

Also approaching the 1300 Metres, HANG'S DECISION was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CHEERFUL BOY.

Passing the 100 Metres, THE JUDGE was directed out away from the heels of HAR HAR HEART (K Teetan) which shifted out under pressure.

K Teetan was reprimanded and advised that in similar circumstances he would be expected to stop riding and straighten his mounts sooner than he did on this occasion.

Over the concluding stages, DON'T MISS and THUNDER STOMP raced tight.

After the race, Z Purton stated that after shifting INTREPIC across behind runners, his mount was reluctant to maintain its position behind SAM'S LOVE after the 1000 Metres.

He said he commenced to ride INTREPIC along near the 950 Metres including slapping it down the shoulder with the whip, however, the more he rode the horse, the more it wanted to give ground.

He said he commenced to ride INTREPIC along vigorously after the 900 Metres and as the horse was not responding to his riding, he commenced to ride it even more urgently after the 700 Metres.

He said despite being hard ridden, INTREPIC continued to lose ground, however, he continued to ride the horse until approaching the Home Turn and as it was showing no response to his riding, he felt that there may be something amiss with the horse.

He said as INTREPIC was well out of contention, he therefore eased it down in the Straight.

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

The performance of INTREPIC, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, INTREPIC will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Also after the race, J Moreira stated that after being crowded for room on jumping, SAM'S LOVE was required to race further back in the field than had been hoped.

He said because of the manner in which the race was run, SAM'S LOVE was too far out of its ground to be a serious threat in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of SAM'S LOVE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of HANG'S DECISION immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SAM'S LOVE, DON'T MISS and THUNDER STOMP were sent for sampling.
