Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed late Heza Beauty showed a good turn of foot to get up in deep stretch for the win after a patient ride three deep with cover beyond midfield. The penny does appear to have dropped with him in his two starts this term. The Hulk just edged Taking Aim for second after travelling better than midfield with cover. He's building towards a win in his four runs this term. Taking Aim was swamped late after assuming the lead from Armor Star 400m out following a pace-stalking run from a wide gate. Romantic Combo finished well from the rear of the field. He's hit the line well in back-to-back runs and is likely crying out for a mile or even 1,800m trip. Top Score stayed on all right following a one-out, one-back run. He's not far off a bottom. Gift Of Lifeline ran on without menacing from towards the rear. The mile seems to suit him better nowadays. President's Choice will sleep well after a torrid run without cover in midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (120) - SHA TIN HOI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Meters

MARVEL DRAGON was withdrawn on 17.10.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (colic) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter EMERALD SPUR (C Y Ho).

Before allowed to race again, MARVEL DRAGON will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

EMERALD SPUR and ARMOR STAR bumped at the start.

ARMOR STAR then shifted out and inconvenienced TELECOM ELITE.

From the outside barrier, ROMANTIC COMBO was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Near the 1300 Metres, CHARIZARD was checked when crowded for room between SMART PATCH and HEZA BEAUTY which, when being shifted across to race behind PRESIDENT'S CHOICE, got its head on the side and shifted in abruptly as a result of being checked away from the heels of that horse which at this stage was being steadied in an attempt to obtain cover.

As the Stewards were satisfied that the racing manners of HEZA BEAUTY, together with PRESIDENT'S CHOICE being steadied in advance of that horse, had been the reason for HEZA BEAUTY shifting in abruptly rather than any carelessness on the part of its rider, no further action was taken.

C Schofield (TAKING AIM) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1150 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of THE HULK, causing that horse to be taken in onto SMART PATCH which was unnecessarily hampered and lost the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

In this incident, SMART PATCH shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of TELECOM ELITE which became unbalanced.

CHARIZARD, which was following TELECOM ELITE, was hampered in consequence.

C Schofield was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 11 November 2020 and to expire on Sunday, 15 November 2020 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, Jockey Schofield was fined $25,000.

After the 1100 Metres, THE HULK and PRESIDENT'S CHOICE were left racing wide and without cover.

Approaching the turn near the 900 Metres, TELECOM ELITE commenced to prove difficult to settle and shifted out away from the heels of TOP SCORE, resulting in SMART PATCH being taken out onto PRESIDENT'S CHOICE.

HEZA BEAUTY, which was following SMART PATCH, was checked away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

CHARIZARD, which was following TELECOM ELITE, was inconvenienced in consequence as was GIFT OF LIFELINE.

Passing the 400 Metres, PRESIDENT'S CHOICE was awkwardly placed outside the heels of THE HULK which was taken out marginally by TOP SCORE.

Close to the finishing line, GIFT OF LIFELINE raced tight outside ROMANTIC COMBO which, when closing off the race strongly, was shifted to the outside of HEZA BEAUTY which lay in under pressure over the concluding stages.

After the race, M Chadwick was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of CIRCUIT HASSLER.

He said he raced with cover behind the eventual winner HEZA BEAUTY and immediately shifted to the outside of that horse rounding the Home Turn, however, CIRCUIT HASSLER did not show the same turn of foot as HEZA BEAUTY and that horse was able to establish a margin on CIRCUIT HASSLER.

He said after this CIRCUIT HASSLER did not finish off the race as well as expected and, in his opinion, was disappointing.

A veterinary inspection of CIRCUIT HASSLER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of PRESIDENT'S CHOICE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of ARMOR STAR immediately following the race found that horse to have bled from both nostrils.

ARMOR STAR, HEZA BEAUTY and THE HULK were sent for sampling.


Race 5 was put back 5 minutes.


After the running of Race 3, the track classification for the turf course was officially changed from "Good??to "Good to Firm?? This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective.

As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 3 being run on a track rated "Good to Firm?? 3.
