Recap by phillip woo

Apache Pass was too strong after hitting the front 250m out after chasing the speed one off with cover in third for a third win over this AWT trip. He loves this surface and should remain competitive up in grade off a light weight. Romantic Combo kept on gamely for second after going forward to sit outside the leader Skyey Supreme 650m out. It was another honest performance. So We Joy ran on steadily to finish a clear-cut third without menacing the top two after a midfield run on the fence. It was another good effort carrying 13 pounds more following a win. Ultra Express made good ground late near the inside to fill the frame after biding his time near last from a wide draw. He doesn't know how to produce a bad run over this surface and trip. Emerging dashed well to nearly fill the frame after making his run three from the rear. It was a vastly improved effort with a switch to the dirt at just his second local start. Bear Slam came up one paced over the final 100m after launching his bid rounding the final bend travelling one off behind midfield. He has trouble stringing together two good runs. Leap Of Faith held his ground after a wide run without cover in midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (641) - TIN SHUI WAI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650Meters

EMERGING began only fairly.

SKYEY SUPREME shifted in at the start and bumped TRUE LEGEND.

From wide barriers, A LA KING, FUNCTION PATCH and ULTRA EXPRESS were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

M F Poon (SKYEY SUPREME) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 1400 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of TRUE LEGEND, resulting in that horse being taken in and causing APACHE PASS to be crowded and in turn taken in which resulted in ROMANTIC COMBO, BEAR SLAM and SO WE JOY being unnecessarily crowded for room and for ROMANTIC COMBO to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled so as to prevent causing further interference to both BEAR SLAM and SO WE JOY.

M F Poon was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 11 May 2022 and to expire on Monday, 16 May 2022 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

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

After this incident, ROMANTIC COMBO was left racing wide and without cover and after the 1200 Metres was allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead after the 1000 Metres.

Passing the 1200 Metres, LEAP OF FAITH commenced to travel keenly and was awkwardly placed behind BEAR SLAM and then after the 1000 Metres was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 650 Metres, LEAP OF FAITH shifted out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of APACHE PASS.

Approaching the 400 Metres, ROMANTIC COMBO became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by TRUE LEGEND (K Teetan) which attempted to shift out from behind SKYEY SUPREME.

This resulted in ROMANTIC COMBO becoming unbalanced and TRUE LEGEND losing ground.

K Teetan was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

After the race, K Teetan stated that after this incident TRUE LEGEND came under pressure and then did not respond to his riding over the latter stages.

A veterinary inspection of TRUE LEGEND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of TRUE LEGEND, favourite for tonight's race and which finished towards the rear of the field, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, TRUE LEGEND will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

In the Straight, SO WE JOY lay in under pressure.

Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that the riding of M Chadwick (ULTRA EXPRESS), 4th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horse's finishing position, he was nonetheless reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

After the race, it was reported that A LA KING had bled from both nostrils.

TRUE LEGEND, APACHE PASS and ROMANTIC COMBO were sent for sampling.
