Recap by phillip woo

Saul's Special got the bob down when it counted most after hitting the front 200m following a speed-chasing run outside Moment Of Power from a wide gate to remain unbeaten in two outings over this trip. Cheerfuljet stayed on very well settling third in the run to just miss by a whisker. He's an effective sprinter on the dirt and up to 1,200m at the Valley. Hichinlove closed well from midfield to fill a placing in a promising debut. He'll have room to head higher. Gunnison closed nicely to get the head down for fourth after travelling third from the rear. He got too far back and is better suited over the 1,200m. Plunged late, Fantastic Eight finished nicely down the outside after settling back from a wide gate. He's not good enough at this level but will have strong claims if he finds his way into Class Three. Both favourite Mr Lumieres and Baltic Whisper were never really a threat at any point in their initial runs over the course.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (89) - VERBENA HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1000Meters

BALTIC WHISPER began only fairly and then was crowded for room between KEEP MOVING and MR LUMIERES which shifted out.

In this incident, KEEP MOVING shifted out after being bumped by BALTIC WHISPER, resulting in GUNNISON and FABULOUS ONE, which began awkwardly, being hampered.

SAUL'S SPECIAL shifted in at the start and bumped HINCHINLOVE.

From the outside barrier, FANTASTIC EIGHT was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

A Sanna (HINCHINLOVE) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 700 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of ALMABABY, causing that horse to be unnecessarily crowded for room and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

GUNNISON, which was following, was hampered in consequence.

A Sanna 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 Sanna's good race riding record.

Passing the 600 Metres, KEEP MOVING was steadied away from the heels of HINCHINLOVE (A Sanna) which shifted in when not properly clear.

A Sanna was reprimanded.

BALTIC WHISPER, which was racing behind KEEP MOVING, ran out making the turn after the 600 Metres and in doing so was checked after bumping the hindquarters of GUNNISON which became unbalanced.

The Stewards were satisfied that this incident was as a result of BALTIC WHISPER's racing manners rather than any influence from KEEP MOVING being hampered inside HINCHINLOVE.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, MR LUMIERES became unbalanced after shifting in of its own accord and brushing the running rail.

Apprentice C Wong will be questioned regarding the disappointing performance of KEEP MOVING prior to the Sha Tin racemeeting on Saturday.

13 October 2018.

A veterinary inspection of BALTIC WHISPER and KEEP MOVING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MR LUMIERES, SAUL'S SPECIAL and CHEERFULJET were sent for sampling.
