Recap by phillip woo

Wisdom Patch got up in the last bound after making his run one off worse than midfield for a first win at his 17th start. He had been knocking on the door in three prior starts. Newcomer Prosperous Win ran out under pressure but was just collared on the wire after poking his head in front 100m out following a prominent run four wide without cover. It was a good run on debut. Early favourite Smart Folks grudgingly gave way after turning just over a length on top leading from a middle draw. He's a winner waiting to happen. Utopia Life weakened late after pressing the pace from a middle draw. He's close to a bottom. Fiery Diamond just failed to fill the frame after copping a check close to home travelling four wide three from the back from the widest draw as the lateplunged favourite. He keeps promising without delivering. Touch Faith ran on steadily without menacing after a rails run behind midfield. He went OK with a return to Class Four following a win. Jazz Steed just held his ground after a two-to-three wide run fore of midfield. He's not easy to get right. Sunset Watch never landed a blow after a wide with cover run behind midfield. He's struggling to recapture form despite a downgrade.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (667) - ESSEX HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

On arrival at the Start, C Y Ho expressed concern regarding the action of TEAM GOODLUCK.

TEAM GOODLUCK was examined by the Veterinary Officer who, after the necessary consultations, said the horse was suitable to race.

PROSPEROUS WIN was crowded for room on jumping between COMMON ROOM and TOUCH FAITH which got its head on the side and shifted out despite the efforts of its rider.

COMMON ROOM was then steadied a short distance after the start when taken out across the heels of UTOPIA LIFE by PROSPEROUS WIN and TOUCH FAITH which continued to lay out.

WISDOM PATCH shifted out at the start and inconvenienced TEAM GOODLUCK.

SUNSET WATCH shifted out on jumping and inconvenienced YEE CHEONG BRAVE.

After this, from a wide barrier, YEE CHEONG BRAVE was shifted across behind runners.

M Chadwick (WISDOM PATCH) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that after the 800 Metres he rode his mount along to improve inside the heels of JAZZ STEED which resulted in WISDOM PATCH shifting in across the rightful running of TOUCH FAITH approaching the 700 Metres, causing TOUCH FAITH to become badly unbalanced and to be checked.

M Chadwick was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 1 June 2022 and to expire on Monday, 6 June 2022 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, Jockey Chadwick was fined $60,000.

When TOUCH FAITH was checked, COMMON ROOM, which was following, was checked and lost ground in consequence.

Near the 700 Metres, PROSPEROUS WIN was left racing wide and without cover and then passing the 600 Metres got its head on the side and lay out.

Rounding the Home Turn, JAZZ STEED shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of PROSPEROUS WIN, resulting in JAZZ STEED being checked away from the heels of PROSPEROUS WIN which shifted in marginally as a result of becoming unbalanced.

Approaching the 100 Metres, PROSPEROUS WIN (R Maia), which was having its first race start today, shifted out abruptly, resulting in WISDOM PATCH being shifted out away from that horse and causing FIERY DIAMOND to be hampered when taken wider.

As the Stewards were of the opinion that R Maia had reacted in a timely manner to his mount shifting out abruptly, no further action was taken.

PROSPEROUS WIN then again shifted out under pressure close to the finishing line.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that as FIERY DIAMOND had not been finishing its races off as well as anticipated recently, he was asked, from the outside barrier, not to ride his mount along in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

He said when steadying his mount in the early stages, FIERY DIAMOND commenced to lay out and then hung out after the 700 Metres.

He said FIERY DIAMOND continued to race with its head on the side and made the Home Turn awkwardly.

He added that under pressure in the Straight FIERY DIAMOND continued to lay out.
