Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Harmony Fire won going away 70m out after enjoying all favours in the box-seat for a second win from five starts. He made no mistake from a good draw for a change and should remain competitive up in grade off a light weight. Punted late Super Commander kept on gamely for second after rushing forward to lead from a wide draw 750m out. The tactics change nearly paid off. Happy Gathering ran on nicely after settling behind midfield on the fence to fill a placing. The move to blinkers had a positive effect. Specked late Happy Time finished well to fill the frame after biding his time third last from the widest draw. He can produce an odd good run now and then. Circuit Seven stayed on all right after settling midfield on the fence following a slow start. He should be able to find his mark shortly in this grade. Sugamo gradually faded after a prominent run one-off the fence. He's still a work in progress. Very Sweet Orange weakened over the final 150m after a pace-stalking run. He still continues to disappoint on his 10 starts this term and will need to drop lower in the handicaps.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (645) - MA TAU KOK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Meters

NOIR RIDER was withdrawn on 4.5.21 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter CIRCUIT SEVEN (K Teetan).

Before being allowed to race again, NOIR RIDER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

K C Leung (GIVE WAY PLEASE) was fined the sum of $3,000 for initially weighing out with two girths which resulted in the saddle having to be returned to the Weighing Room and K C Leung having to re-weigh.

At the time of declaration, H N Wong notified a probable overweight of 2 lbs in respect of BOND A STAR's allocated weight of 113 lbs.

H N Wong then weighed in an additional 1 lb overweight, resulting in H N Wong weighing in 3 lbs over the horse's allocated weight.

H N Wong was fined the sum of $7,500.

CIRCUIT SEVEN, which was fractious in the barriers, began awkwardly and shifted out towards the heels of VERY SWEET ORANGE, resulting in CIRCUIT SEVEN losing ground.

PRECIOUS SWEETIE shifted out at the start and bumped HAPPY GATHERING.

SUPER COMMANDER shifted in at the start and brushed EVERYONE'S VICTORY which in turn shifted in, resulting in SUGAMO being bumped.

After this, EVERYONE'S VICTORY was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

From the outside barrier, HAPPY TIME was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

After the 700 Metres, POWER PROFIT shifted in and bumped CIRCUIT SEVEN.

CIRCUIT SEVEN and POWER PROFIT then raced tight which resulted in CIRCUIT SEVEN shifting out marginally passing the 650 Metres and bumping POWER PROFIT which in turn shifted out and bumped PRECIOUS SWEETIE.

Then making the turn near the 550 Metres, POWER PROFIT got its head on the side and lay out, resulting in PRECIOUS SWEETIE being taken wider.

HAPPY TIME, which was following POWER PROFIT, was steadied away from the heels of that horse passing the 500 Metres.

BOND A STAR also made the turn near the 550 Metres awkwardly, shifted out and inconvenienced EVERYONE'S VICTORY.

After this, BOND A STAR continued to lay out making the turns.

M Chadwick (HAPPY GATHERING) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 450 Metres he directed his mount to the outside of GIVE WAY PLEASE which resulted in HAPPY GATHERING shifting out across the rightful running of POWER PROFIT when not clear of that horse, resulting in POWER PROFIT being checked.

M Chadwick was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 12 May 2021 and to expire on Monday, 17 May 2021 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, Jockey Chadwick was fined $50,000.

When POWER PROFIT was checked, PRECIOUS SWEETIE, which was following, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

Near the 150 Metres, HAPPY TIME was shifted out away from the heels of VERY SWEET ORANGE to continue improving.

A veterinary inspection of GIVE WAY PLEASE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of PRECIOUS SWEETIE immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm and had bled from both nostrils.

HARMONY FIRE and SUPER COMMANDER were sent for sampling.
