HEARTILY WINS was withdrawn on 24.9.16 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (sore left front tendon) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter SOCCER BRAVE (H W Lai). Before being allowed to race again, HEARTILY WINS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
SOCCER BRAVE was slow to begin and then shortly after the start lost ground when crowded for room between THUNDERSTROKE and SPICY DOUBLE which was taken out by PLENTY OF SPEED.
SUPER GIFTED was crowded for room shortly after the start between MANHATTAN STRIKER and FORZA AVANTI which shifted out.
Despite being vigorously ridden in the early stages, THUNDERSTROKE failed to muster speed.
From the outside barrier, FREE NOVEMBER was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.
N Rawiller (SEA WARRIOR) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 1100 Metres he failed to make sufficient endeavour to prevent his mount from shifting in when that horse was not clear of GOOD LUCK MAN, resulting in GOOD LUCK MAN being checked and losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled. N Rawiller was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Saturday, 1 October 2016 and to expire on Thursday, 6 October 2016 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays). In addition, N Rawiller was fined $30,000.
Making the turn after the 900 Metres, FREE NOVEMBER got its head up on a number of occasions when travelling keenly.
Rounding the Home Turn, PLENTY OF SPEED was bumped by SMART GAIN which became unbalanced and shifted out after also being bumped by FORZA AVANTI which shifted out to obtain clear running.
Throughout the race, PLENTY OF SPEED travelled wide and without cover.
A veterinary inspection of GOOD LUCK MAN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
SEA WARRIOR and FORZA AVANTI were sent for sampling.
