Recap by phillip woo

Raging favourite Packing Victory was too smart despite carrying top weight after moving to the front 300m out following a pace-stalking run outside Theta Hedge. He's now perfect in two starts and there's plenty more to come from him. Amigos Giggle ran on well to grab second 100m out after settling one off in midfield. He lived up to two pleasing efforts last season and will be saluting shortly. Well-backed Happy Time closed off reasonably well from behind midfield to fill a placing. He's getting long in the tooth but can bob up now and then and was resuming off a career low in the ratings. Fantastic Fabio kept on all right after a box-seat run. He's more effective at the Valley. Biz Power was doing some nice work late after settling last early on from a wide draw. He can get away with a race shortly at this level. Little Thunder made some ground without ever looking a threat following a rail run behind midfield. He's better suited on the dirt. Glorious Lover got going late when the race was all but over after biding his time second from the rear. He requires a longer trip and the Valley.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (3) - YI TUNG SHAN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

SIGHT HERO shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of FANTASTIC FABIO which became unbalanced.

In this incident, FANTASTIC FABIO shifted out and bumped THETA HEDGE.

WAH MAY LUCK, which began awkwardly, and LITTLE THUNDER were crowded for room on jumping between CASA DE FORCA and AMIGOS GIGGLE, both of which shifted ground.

From wide barriers, NIMBLE NIMBUS, GLORIOUS LOVER and BIZ POWER were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

HAPPY TIME was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

When being steadied to obtain cover passing the 1100 Metres, AMIGOS GIGGLE got its head up and proved difficult to settle and then after the 800 Metres, when continuing to prove very difficult to settle, again got its head up when being checked away from the heels of CASA DE FORCA.

THETA HEDGE travelled very keenly for some distance approaching and passing the 1000 Metres.

Passing the 900 Metres, SIGHT HERO was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FANTASTIC FABIO.

After the 800 Metres, NIMBLE NIMBUS was left racing wide and without cover and then after the 700 Metres was taken wider again by WAH MAY LUCK which shifted to the outside of HAPPY TIME.

For a considerable distance in the early and middle part of the Home Straight, AMIGOS GIGGLE hung in and proved difficult to ride, resulting in its rider having to stop riding and straighten his mount on a number of occasions.

Then after the 150 Metres, AMIGOS GIGGLE, which continued to lay in despite the efforts of its rider, shifted in, resulting in LITTLE THUNDER being steadied away from the heels of that horse.

After being corrected, AMIGOS GIGGLE (J Moreira) then shifted in approaching the 50 Metres, resulting in LITTLE THUNDER again being hampered.

Because of this, LITTLE THUNDER was not able to be properly tested over the concluding stages.

J Moreira was advised that whilst the Stewards accepted that AMIGOS GIGGLE had proved very difficult to manage in the Straight when laying in badly under pressure, nonetheless he must in future make every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground even in difficult circumstances.

The racing manners of AMIGOS GIGGLE were considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, AMIGOS GIGGLE will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial.

SIGHT HERO was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FANTASTIC FABIO which shifted in near the 350 Metres.

This resulted in SIGHT HERO being held up for clear running for a short distance.

Near the 250 Metres, PACKING VICTORY shifted out under pressure, resulting in its rider having to stop riding and straighten.

C Wong (FANTASTIC FABIO) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 100 Metres he permitted his mount to shift out when not clear of CASA DE FORCA, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

In the circumstances, C Wong was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Sunday, 12 September 2021 and to expire on Thursday, 16 September 2021 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

After the race, C Schofield reported that after having some difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight, SIGHT HERO finished off the race only one-paced over the concluding stages.

A veterinary inspection of SIGHT HERO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of CASA DE FORCA immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, CASA DE FORCA will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

PACKING VICTORY and AMIGOS GIGGLE were sent for sampling.
