Recap by phillip woo

Super Chic followed a mid-race move by Packing Dragon travelling one-off in midfield, hit the front approaching the 100m and kept on gamely to just edge favourite Red Warrior for a second straight win. Favourite Red Warrior stayed on very well following a prominent run on the fence to just miss. He lost nothing in defeat and has the tools to head higher off his current mark. Punted late Glorious Artist wouldn't go down without a fight after pressing forward from a wide gate to lead 1,000m out. Good Omen finished well to edge Packing Dragon for fourth after switching into the open at the 200mn travelling worse than midfield on the fence. Packing Dragon peaked on his run 100m out after taking off from behind midfield to park outside the leader Glorious Artist at the 700m. Pikachu got going late down the outside following a patient ride second from the rear. Victory Boys never came on from the back in a rare off day.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (235) - FRANCE HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1800Meters

IMPERIAL GALLANTRY and PACKING DRAGON bumped at the start.

A short distance after this, PACKING DRAGON and GIANT TURTLE bumped.

After this, PACKING DRAGON, despite being vigorously ridden, failed to muster speed.

From wide barriers, VICTORY BOYS and PIKACHU were shifted across behind runners shortly after the start.

PACKING DRAGON lost its left front plate shortly after the start.

After travelling a short distance, ROCKETEER was steadied away from the heels of GLORIOUS ARTIST (G van Niekerk) which shifted in when not quite clear.

G van Niekerk was reprimanded.

Passing the 1400 Metres, GLORIOUS ARTIST was left racing wide and without cover and after the 1200 Metres was allowed to improve to obtain a position closer to the rail.

Passing the 500 Metres, VICTORY BOYS was awkwardly placed outside PEOPLE'S KNIGHT which shifted out marginally.

Rounding the Home Turn, VICTORY BOYS was awkwardly placed outside the heels of GRAND CHANCELLOR which lay out when giving ground.

After the race, Z Purton was dislodged from VICTORY BOYS.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that VICTORY BOYS did not travel as strongly as it had done in the past when ridden by him.

He said at its most recent start VICTORY BOYS had pulled up distressed and he felt that this may have had some impact on the horse's performance tonight.

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

SUPER CHIC and RED WARRIOR were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

Race 9 (225) - 2 December 2018 Sha Tin Race Meeting The Stewards tonight interviewed Mr K L Man, the trainer of BIG TIME BABY, regarding the improvement in the horse's form as compared to its previous start.

Mr Man informed the Stewards that he expected BIG TIME BABY would race well at its most recent start and advised the connections accordingly.

He said however that BIG TIME BABY was obliged to race back in the field on that occasion after being slow to begin and because of this the horse was not able to finish off the race.

He said after beginning well in this race, the horse was able to take up a forward position and consequently was able to close off the race strongly.
