Recap by phillip woo

Play Wise held off favourite Heavenly Thought for the win after overhauling Lightning Steed for the lead 80m out following a box-seat run. Heavenly Thought ran on steadily along the inside following a midfield run to make it close on the wire. There's a win coming after ringing up placings in half his six starts this term. Lightning Steed grudgingly gave way after hitting the front passing the 500m chasing the genuine pace of Electric Lightning. Indigenous Star ran on steadily to finish a distant fourth following a one-off run in midfield. Pretty Bauhinia ran on steadily without menacing after trying to follow the move of Management Star from near the back 800m out. Harrier Jet made some headway late after a patient ride second from the back. Management Star came up one-paced over the final 150m after taking off from the rear of the field at the 800m. He wasn't able to build on a last-start win carrying five pounds more here.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (336) - ICE HOUSE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Meters

MANAGEMENT STAR was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, HARRIET JET was bumped PRETTY BAUHINIA which was taken out by ELECTRIC LIGHTNING.

After this, from wide barriers, PRETTY BAUHINIA and HARRIER JET were shifted across behind runners.

Also from the outside barrier, TUNG WAH GLORY was steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

At the 800 Metres, HARRIET JET improved quickly behind CHARITY WINGS, resulting in HARRIET JET being checked away from the heels of that horse and shifting in, causing crowding to TUNG WAH GLORY.

At the 600 Metres, MANAGEMENT STAR was bumped and then raced tight outside MISTER MONTE (G van Niekerk) which improved to the outside of LIGHTNING STEED.

G van Niekerk was severely reprimanded and told that he must exercise appropriate care when shifting ground so as not to hamper other runners.

He was also told to ensure that when racing tight with other runners, his elbow does not extend unnecessarily away from his body.

When questioned regarding his riding of ELECTRIC LIGHTNING, Apprentice K H Chan stated that as the horse was carrying a very light weight, he was asked to obtain a forward position on the horse and lead if possible.

He said if the rider of another horse was intent on leading, then it was available to him to take a sit, however, it was preferable for the horse to lead outright in tonight's race.

He said in accordance with his instructions he rode his mount positively in the early stages to clear runners to his inside and after crossing MISTER MONTE he established somewhat a margin over LIGHTNING STEED which was racing on the rail and therefore he elected after the 1300 Metres to allow his mount to cross LIGHTNING STEED into the lead.

He said after being vigorously ridden in the early stages, ELECTRIC LIGHTNING travelled keenly after the 1200 Metres as he attempted to steady the tempo.

He said he was reluctant to steady ELECTRIC LIGHTNING too hard as he wished to ensure that he did not ease the tempo too dramatically and cause interference to runners behind and to ensure that other runners were not able to improve around ELECTRIC LIGHTNING and engage that horse in a speed battle.

After being advised of the particularly quick section after the 1200 Metres, Apprentice Chan stated that whilst he was aware that the race was being run at a good tempo, he did not realize that it was being run quite as fast as it was and had he been aware of this he would have made more of an effort to steady the tempo than he did.

Apprentice Chan was advised that his explanation would be reported and that as an apprentice jockey who has now ridden in a considerable number of races both in Hong Kong and overseas, he should be aware of the tempo that he is setting on horses and rate them such that they can finish off their race as best as they are able.

A veterinary inspection of CHARITY WINGS, MISTER MONTE and MANAGEMENT STAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

PLAY WISE and HEAVENLY THOUGHT were sent for sampling.
