Recap by phillip woo

Red Brick Fighter won going away 150m out after enjoying a perfect run in the box seat. He was able to take advantage of a light weight up in grade to add to his good form this season. Favourite Victory In Hand just held on for second after getting his own way in front from a middle draw. He was giving the winner too much of an advantage in the weights. Master Albert ran on steadily to just miss a placing travelling one off better than midfield. He's not far off a bottom. Hot Chilli Pepper came from near last and one from the outside to edge King's Trooper for a quartet spot. He's still a work in progress. King's Trooper ran on steadily widest out from the 250m to just miss the frame after a one-off run behind midfield. It wasn't a bad effort first up after a 226-day break. Good Luck Money made some ground late near the inside without menacing after settling five back along the fence from a wide gate. It was an improved effort at his fourth start. Newcomer Everyone's Victory was badly balked for a run near the inside at the 200m when trying to improve from towards the rear following a slow start.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (433) - MUT WAH HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

KING'S TROOPER, which was fractious when being transported to Happy Valley, was examined in the holding stables by the Veterinary Officer who said that the horse had sustained a small laceration to the right hock, however, was suitable to race.

Just prior to the start being effected, COOLCELEB became fractious and lunged at the front gates, resulting in that horse's barrier stall opening marginally prior to the remaining gates.

As a result of COOLCELEB lunging at the front gates of its own accord, this resulted in the horse beginning awkwardly, shifting in and bumping GOOD LUCK MONEY which shifted out.

As the Stewards were of the opinion that COOLCELEB had created the issue at the start of its own accord and that the horse had not been advantaged by the gates opening just prior to the remaining barrier stalls, no further action was taken.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on COOLCELEB at the request of Trainer T P Yung.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea and was also found to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

EVERYONE'S VICTORY began awkwardly and lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected, resulting in the horse being slow to begin and losing ground.

SURE WINNER shifted out at the start and bumped KING'S TROOPER.

From wide barriers, GOOD LUCK MONEY and HOT CHILI PEPPER were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 1100 Metres, KING'S TROOPER and AEROSONIC raced tight.

Making the turn after the 1000 Metres, KING'S TROOPER commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of MASTER ALBERT.

After this, KING'S TROOPER continued to travel keenly.

Passing the 800 Metres, AEROSONIC was awkwardly placed outside the heels of KING'S TROOPER when being steadied to obtain cover behind that horse.

At the entrance to the Straight, GOOD LUCK MONEY was shifted in away from the heels of CHAMP PATROL to obtain clear running.

EVERYONE'S VICTORY, which was following, momentarily raced tight inside the heels of GOOD LUCK MONEY.

Passing the 250 Metres, NOBLE BOYZ shifted in abruptly when commencing to give ground.

K C Leung (GOOD LUCK MONEY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 250 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of EVERYONE'S VICTORY, resulting in that horse being unnecessarily crowded for room and losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled passing the 200 Metres.

K C Leung was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 3 March 2021 and to expire on Monday, 8 March 2021 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into account Jockey Leung's good race riding record.

Passing the 100 Metres, AEROSONIC was shifted out away from the heels of CHAMP PATROL which was giving ground.

Also passing the 100 Metres, CHAMP PATROL momentarily raced in restricted room between HOT CHILI PEPPER and NOBLE BOYZ, both of which shifted ground.

Over the concluding stages, EVERYONE'S VICTORY raced tight outside the heels of GOOD LUCK MONEY.

When questioned regarding the performance of SURE WINNER which was having its first race start tonight, A Badel stated that after beginning awkwardly, he had to ride his mount along for a short distance in the early part of the race to obtain as forward a position as possible.

He said it had been hoped that SURE WINNER would obtain a position behind the lead, however, SURE WINNER was required to race two pairs further back due to the manner in which the horse began.

He said SURE WINNER travelled satisfactorily in the middle stages, however, after coming under pressure prior to the 400 Metres, SURE WINNER was then disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race.

He added that he had ridden SURE WINNER in a number of barrier trials in the lead up to tonight's race and he was of the opinion that the horse had performed better in the trials conducted on the All Weather surface than those on the turf albeit the turf trials were good.

A veterinary inspection of SURE WINNER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

RED BRICK FIGHTER and VICTORY IN HAND were sent for sampling.
