Recap by phillip woo

Murray's Partners came with a determined move from behind midfield to deny the late-plunged Starlit Knight on the wire for the win. The writing had been on the wall in a few of his six starts this term and birthday boy Karis Teetan can't seem to do no wrong of late. It was a huge effort by the runner-up who had to work hard from a wide gate to eventually sit outside the leader Smiling Success 1,200m out before moving to the lead 250m out. Universal Go Go ran on nicely near the outside after a patient ride third from the rear to just overhaul Oriental Elite for third without menacing the top pair. Oriental Elite stayed on all right after a prominent run on the fence. He's run all right in defeat in backto- back runs following lameness in March. Green Envy ran on steadily without threatening from midfield. He's naturally improving with racing. Classic Posh didn't seem to get the trip after chasing the speed in third carrying top weight following a last-start win.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (712) - WYNDHAM HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650Meters

GREEN ENVY began awkwardly.

UNIVERSAL GO GO shifted out at the start and bumped DRAGON PRIDE.

EVEN KEEL and HAR HAR HEART bumped at the start.

After this, EVEN KEEL and HAR HAR HEART were shifted across behind runners.

After travelling a short distance, INDIGENOUS STAR and UNIVERSAL GO GO raced tight between DRAGON PRIDE and AFTER ME which shifted out.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, GREEN ENVY got its head on the side and shifted out towards the heels of CLASSIC POSH, resulting in GREEN ENVY being checked away from the heels of that horse and losing ground.

At the entrance to the Straight, GREEN ENVY was shifted out away from the heels of ORIENTAL ELITE which shifted out.

N Callan (ORIENTAL ELITE) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that after attempting to improve between SMILING SUCCESS and STARLIT KNIGHT near the 350 Metres and being disappointed for running between those horses, he failed to make sufficient endeavours to prevent ORIENTAL ELITE from shifting out after the 350 Metres across the rightful running of CLASSIC POSH, causing that horse to be checked.

When CLASSIC POSH was checked, INDIGENOUS STAR was shifted out away from the heels of that horse and then shifted out further, resulting in AFTER ME being steadied and losing ground.

N Callan was suspended from riding in races for the racemeeting to be conducted at Sha Tin on Sunday, 21 June 2020.

As such, N Callan is eligible to resume race riding on Monday, 22 June 2020.

In addition, Jockey Callan was fined $35,000.

Near the 50 Metres, STARLIT KNIGHT (T H So) and MURRAY'S PARTNERS raced tight as STARLIT KNIGHT shifted out under pressure.

Due to the two horses racing tight, T H So was restricted in his use of the whip.

Close to the finishing line, ORIENTAL ELITE and UNIVERSAL GO GO raced tight.

For the majority of the race, DRAGON PRIDE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the performance of CLASSIC POSH, Z Purton stated that although the horse was quite badly checked after the 350 Metres, at this stage CLASSIC POSH was already under heavy pressure.

He said from a favourable draw he was able to obtain a good position in the early stages without having to make any use of CLASSIC POSH and the horse travelled well in the middle stages behind STARLIT KNIGHT.

He said CLASSIC POSH came under pressure near the 500 Metres and after being vigorously ridden after that point did not respond as he anticipated.

He said rounding the Home Turn CLASSIC POSH was under considerable pressure and after being checked near the 350 Metres gave ground noticeably and finished at the rear of the field.

He added, in his opinion, despite the interference at the entrance to the Straight CLASSIC POSH was disappointing as it was under heavy pressure prior to that point.

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

The performance of CLASSIC POSH, a last start winner, was considered unacceptable.

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

A veterinary inspection of AFTER ME, SMILING SUCCESS and DRAGON PRIDE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

ORIENTAL ELITE, MURRAY'S PARTNERS and STARLIT KNIGHT were sent for sampling.
