Recap by phillip woo

Helene Wisdom Star just held on to win a three-horse thriller after working forward to lead narrowly 700m out after a prominent run without cover. He relished the light weight up in grade to add to an earlier win. Telecom Fighters wouldn't go down without a fight after quickly finding the front from gate eight. He's really come into his own in his past seven starts. Hall Of Champ finished strongly to make it close on the wire after making his run two-to-three deep with cover behind midfield. He's blossomed into a nice horse this season with three wins on the board. Post-time favourite Gift Of Lifeline got going late near the inside to finish fourth without threatening the top three following a rails run in midfield. He's likely on or near his mark. Magnificent came up flat over the last 100m after a pace-stalking run from a middle draw. He's been in the grasp of the handicapper all season long. Early favourite Flagship Glory came up one-paced after getting posted without cover in midfield from a wide gate. He had an excuse. Beauty Fit ran on without ever looking a threat settling second last after a tardy break from a wide gate. The switch to the Valley backfired carrying more weight following a last-start win.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (834) - WONG NAI CHUNG HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1650Meters

LAKESHORE EAGLE lost ground when crowded for room on jumping between GIFT OF LIFELINE and KASI FARASI which shifted out abruptly.

Shortly after the start, HOLY HEART was crowded for room between GIFT OF LIFELINE which was unbalanced as a result of being bumped on the hindquarters by LAKESHORE EAGLE and LOBO'S LEGEND which was taken in by HELENE WISDOM STAR.

GREEN LASER shifted out at the start and bumped HALL OF CHAMP.

After this, GREEN LASER was steadied to obtain cover.

BEAUTY FIT began very awkwardly and lost ground.

BEAUTY FIT was then shifted across behind runners from the outside barrier to obtain cover.

FLAGSHIP GLORY was also steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners and passing the winning post on the first occasion was left racing wide and without cover.

After traveling approximately 50 Metres, Apprentice C L Chau (LAKESHORE EAGLE) dropped his whip.

H T Mo (MAGNIFICENT) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that for some distance after the 1600 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of HELENE WISDOM STAR, resulting in that horse being taken in and causing LOBO'S LEGEND and GIFT OF LIFELINE to be badly hampered when unnecessarily crowded for room inside HELENE WISDOM STAR and for LOBO'S LEGEND to be steadied and lose its rightful running after passing the winning post on the first occasion.

In the circumstances, H T Mo was fined the sum of $50,000 in lieu of a period of suspension which would incorporate 5 racedays.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, MAGNIFICENT was steadied away from the heels of TELECOM FIGHTERS (T Piccone) which shifted in when not properly clear.

T Piccone was reprimanded.

Near the 1250 Metres, LOBO'S LEGEND got its head up when awkwardly placed behind HELENE WISDOM STAR.

Near the 950 Metres, HELENE WISDOM STAR was taken wider and without cover by MAGNIFICENT which shifted out away from the heels of TELECOM FIGHTERS.

HELENE WISDOM STAR was then allowed to improve forward of MAGNIFICENT to obtain a position closer to the rail.

The Stewards considered a protest/objection lodged by Mr Y S Tsui, the trainer of the second placed, TELECOM FIGHTERS (T Piccone) against HELENE WISDOM STAR (N Callan) being declared the winner alleging interference near the 550 Metres.

After taking evidence from all parties concerned and after viewing the videos, it was found that at about the 550 Metres HELENE WISDOM STAR shifted in marginally, resulting in TELECOM FIGHTERS momentarily racing in restricted room and losing some ground.

Having regard to the fact that this incident occurred a considerable distance from the finish of the race and that TELECOM FIGHTERS was not able to pass HELENE WISDOM STAR, the Stewards overruled the protest/objection and declared weighed-in on the numbers semaphored by the Judge.

N Callan was subsequently advised to exercise care.

Approaching the 200 Metres, FLAGSHIP GLORY was awkwardly placed outside KASI FARASI which shifted out.

Passing the 100 Metres, MAGNIFICENT momentarily raced tight outside HELENE WISDOM STAR due to both horses shifting ground.

A veterinary inspection of BEAUTY FIT and LAKESHORE EAGLE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GIFT OF LIFELINE, HELENE WISDOM STAR and TELECOM FIGHTERS were sent for sampling.
