Shortly after the start, DANEWIN WINNING shifted out and bumped LEELI’S STAR.
Despite being ridden along in the early stages, FRESH AIR failed to muster speed.
From the outside barrier, CHINA GOOD was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
Making the turn after the 600 Metres, COSMO ONE and DELIGHT FORTUNE bumped.
M L Yeung (TRILLION TREASURE) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that he unnecessarily slowed the tempo of the race after the 600 Metres which resulted in GOOD SMILE, which was following TRILLION TREASURE, being badly hampered, LYRIC ACE, which was following GOOD SMILE, being checked and COSMO ONE, which was following LYRIC ACE, also being checked. When being checked, COSMO ONE shifted out away from the heels of LYRIC ACE, resulting in DELIGHT FORTUNE being hampered when crowded for room between COSMO ONE and MIGHTY GAINS. For some distance after this, COSMO ONE became unbalanced when racing in restricted room between LYRIC ACE and DELIGHT FORTUNE. M L Yeung was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 20 November 2014 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays). The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 9 November 2014.
Near the 400 Metres FRESH AIR was steadied away from the heels of COSMO ONE which continued to race in restricted room.
Approaching the 200 Metres, COSMO ONE and DELIGHT FORTUNE bumped due to DELIGHT FORTUNE shifting in slightly to improve inside GOOD SMILE which was giving ground.
Near the 50 Metres, COSMO ONE was shifted to the inside of TRILLION TREASURE (M L Yeung) which shifted out under pressure. M L Yeung was advised that in similar circumstances he would be expected to make every endeavour to keep his mount on a straight course.
Approaching the 50 Metres, MIGHTY GAINS was awkwardly placed outside the heels of CHINA GOOD which shifted ground marginally.
For the majority of the race, DANEWIN WINNING travelled wide and without cover.
After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that GOOD SMILE had sustained a cut to the right front leg.
A veterinary inspection of MIGHTY GAINS and GRACYTOM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
LYRIC ACE, TRILLION TREASURE and COSMO ONE were sent for sampling.
