Recap by phillip woo

Galaxy Emperor kept finding to edge clear from Kung Fu Tea after hitting the front 140m out following a prominent run without cover the entire trip. He was able to ring up a second win from his past three starts and the claimer's allowance was crucial in the end. Kung Fu Tea found one too good after hitting the front 250m out following a deep run with cover behind the eventual winner in midfield from a wide draw. He relished the downgrade after hitting the line nicely in two prior starts. Victorious Leader ran on steadily to fill a placing after travelling deep with cover behind midfield. He was able to bounce back following a luckless run last start. Taken back from a wide gate to find the fence behind midfield, late plunged, Spicy Grill ran on well to fill the frame. He can produce a good run now and then. Punted late, Apolar Warrior ran on late without menacing from towards the rear. He's produced a positive performance in two of three runs following a downgrade and can bob up at any moment.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (576) - VIOLET HILL HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400Meters

DESTIN began only fairly.

JOYFUL MOMENTS began very awkwardly, shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of LAOS ENLIGHTENMENT, causing LAOS ENLIGHTENMENT to become unbalanced and JOYFUL MOMENTS to lose ground.

SURE WIN WIN shifted in abruptly at the start, resulting in APOLAR WARRIOR being crowded for room outside M M JOHNNY.

GALAXY EMPEROR lost its left hind plate shortly after the start.

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

From a wide barrier, MONEYMORE was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Near the 1200 Metres, APOLAR WARRIOR commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of VICTORIOUS LEADER.

DESTIN lost its right front plate passing the 1100 Metres.

For some distance after the 1100 Metres, SPICY GRILL raced tight inside M M JOHNNY.

M M JOHNNY was then shifted out to relieve the pressure on SPICY GRILL and after the 1000 Metres again shifted out and bumped VICTORIOUS LEADER which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of KUNG FU TEA.

This resulted in VICTORIOUS LEADER shifting out and being awkwardly placed close to the heels of KUNG FU TEA approaching the 900 Metres.

Passing the 400 Metres, DESTIN was directed to the inside of ALLOY KING to obtain clear running.

Also passing the 400 Metres, M M JOHNNY shifted out and bumped SURE WIN WIN which resulted in both horses becoming unbalanced and as a result of being unbalanced again bumped a short distance later.

Approaching the 200 Metres, HAPPY RUBY, which was continuing to give ground, was checked when momentarily racing in restricted room between SPICY GRILL and ALLOY KING which, after laying in, then shifted out marginally.

Approaching the 100 Metres, DESTIN shifted out and brushed the hindquarters of ALLOY KING.

Apprentice C L Chau (GALAXY EMPEROR) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 300 Metres he failed to make sufficient endeavours to prevent his mount from shifting in which resulted in it shifting in across the rightful running of HAPPY RUBY which was checked and in turn taken in onto ALLOY KING which was inconvenienced.

After considering all the circumstances of this case and Apprentice Chau's race riding record this season, the Stewards were of the opinion that the appropriate penalty was for Apprentice Chau's licence to ride in races to be suspended for a period to commence on Wednesday, 19 May 2021 and to expire on Thursday, 27 May 2021 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, Apprentice Chau was fined $35,000.

In this incident, DESTIN, which was racing to the inside of ALLOY KING, was inconvenienced.

Throughout the race, GALAXY EMPEROR travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of DESTIN and ALLOY KING immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

DESTIN, GALAXY EMPEROR and KUNG FU TEA were sent for sampling.
