Recap by phillip woo

Debutant Holy Power just held off the late surge of early favourite Brave Dreams after hitting the front 50m out from midfield on the fence. He was suited by the pace but it was a smart performance. Brave Dreams finished well down the outside after making his run deep towards the rear from an outside gate. He continues to race well this season. Super Wise Dragon ran on well two from the right to fill a placing after making his run one off in midfield outside the eventual winner. It was a pleasing effort on debut. Punted late Master Of Luck came from near last and widest out to nearly place. He had shown hints of ability in six prior starts. Post-time favourite United We Stand weakened 50m out after straightening four lengths on top leading as expected from a middle draw. He went too hard carrying eight pounds more following a win. Easy Snip made some ground without menacing after a one-off trip behind midfield. He's still trying to find his mark. E Rainbow ran on without threatening from towards the rear.

Racing Incident Report


GOOD RUNNER was withdrawn on 17.12.22 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (heart irregularity) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter UNITED WE STAND (Apprentice Y L Chung).

Before being allowed to race again, GOOD RUNNER will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

HOLY POWER shifted out at the start and brushed SUPER WISE DRAGON which in turn shifted out and bumped MACH TEN.

SUPER WISE DRAGON, MACH TEN and E RAINBOW were then crowded for room between HOLY POWER and EASY SNIP which shifted in after being brushed by UNITED WE STAND.

In this incident, HOLY POWER became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by SUPER WISE DRAGON.

From wide barriers, MASTER OF LUCK and BRAVE DREAMS were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

From the outside barrier, HERO ICON was ridden along for a considerable distance in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, MACH TEN got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover and racing tight outside SUPER WISE DRAGON which was taken wider by HOLY POWER.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, both EASY SNIP and SUPER WISE DRAGON were steadied away from the heels of HAR HAR AT HEART (V Borges) which shifted in.

V Borges was reprimanded and told to ensure that he provides sufficient clearance when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

J McNeil (MACH TEN) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 1000 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of E RAINBOW, resulting in that horse being unnecessarily crowded for room and taken in onto GOLD TACK which resulted in GOLD TACK losing ground when crowded for room inside E RAINBOW.

J McNeil was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Saturday, 24 December 2022 and to expire on Thursday, 29 December 2022 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

Approaching the 800 Metres, BRAVE DREAMS was left racing wide and without cover.

At the 400 Metres, HERO ICON shifted out away from the heels of HAR HAR AT HEART which also shifted out marginally.

Passing the 350 Metres, EASY SNIP was shifted in away from the heels of HERO ICON.

Approaching the 200 Metres, E RAINBOW was shifted in a number of horses to obtain clear running.

Passing the 50 Metres, MASTER OF LUCK was awkwardly placed outside the heels of BRAVE DREAMS.

After the race, Z Purton was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of HUGE WIN which he said gave ground noticeably over the latter stages of the race after coming under pressure prior to the 600 Metres to maintain its position.

A veterinary inspection of HUGE WIN immediately following the race which included an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of mucus in the horse's trachea.

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

UNITED WE STAND, HOLY POWER and BRAVE DREAMS were sent for sampling.
