Recap by phillip woo

Drifting in the betting, Flying Force came from a detached spot to snatch victory from the firming favourite Powermax. Trainer Danny Shum Chap-sing appears from his two outings this term to have revitalised the seven-year-old and he should be able to win another. Powermax found one better after sitting one off in third. He'll be winning shortly if he remains in the grade. Thou Shall Sing grudgingly gave way after dictating the run. His tendency to over race is costing him in the end. Punted late Waldorf stayed on all right following a prominent run on the fence. It was a better effort with a step back in distance but he'll likely need to drop further in the handicaps. Mickey Rich stayed on without menacing following a one-off run in midfield. The rise in weight following a laststart win anchored him. Specked late London Master made some ground without menacing travelling third from the rear. He's trying to find his mark.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (68) - KWOON CHUNG ZHUHAI EXPRESS HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

As the start was effected, TOM'S DRAGON lunged at the front gates which caused the gates to open marginally prior to the remaining gates.

LONDON MASTER began awkwardly.

TOM'S DRAGON shifted in at the start, resulting in FOX CHEUNGER and FLYING FORCE being hampered.

Passing the 1000 Metres, MICKEY RICH was steadied away from the heels of POWERMAX which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of TOM'S DRAGON.

N Callan (MICKEY RICH) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that over the concluding stages he permitted his mount to shift in under pressure when not sufficiently clear of LONDON MASTER, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

N Callan was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday 24 October 2018 and to expire on Monday, 29 October 2018 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

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

In the Straight, COURT RULER lay in and proved difficult to ride.

Throughout the race, STAR SUPERIOR travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on FLYING FORCE at the request of Trainer C S Shum.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, FLYING FORCE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

FLYING FORCE and POWERMAX were sent for sampling.
