As the start was effected, ENERGETIC CLASS, which was fractious in the barriers, reared and lost ground. Before being allowed to race again, ENERGETIC CLASS will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.
PERFECT TIMING was slow to begin.
From a wide barrier, THUNDER DASH was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
Passing the 1000 Metres, DISTINCT COMMANDER got its head up and raced keenly when being steadied to obtain a position with cover.
Near the 900 Metres, FAITHFUL BOY shifted out marginally and bumped JOLLY SPRING.
Passing the 600 Metres, FAITHFUL BOY became unbalanced when momentarily crowded for room inside JOLLY SPRING which in turn was racing tight inside MASTER COMMANDER which was shifted in away from the heels of PEARL WARM WARM (Z Purton) which shifted in when travelling wide. Z Purton was advised to exercise more care.
PEARL WARM WARM travelled wide and without cover until near the 500 Metres and then in the Straight gave ground.
Approaching the 300 Metres, JOLLY SPRING raced tight between PEARL WARM WARM and GOOD LUCK MAN which got its head on the side and shifted out under pressure.
G Mosse (VICTORY HEART) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 250 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of MASTER COMMANDER, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled. G Mosse was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 19 November 2015 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, 8 November 2015.
Also passing the 250 Metres, PEARL WARM WARM, which was giving ground, momentarily raced in restricted room between MASTER COMMANDER and JOLLY SPRING.
MAGICAL BEAM was badly held up for clear running until approaching the 200 Metres.
Throughout the race, MASTER COMMANDER travelled wide and without cover.
The performance of PERFECT TIMING, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable. Before being allowed to race again, PERFECT TIMING will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on VICTORY HEART at the request of Trainer K L Man. The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea. Before being allowed to race again, VICTORY HEART will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
A veterinary inspection of PEARL WARM WARM immediately following the race found that horse to have sustained superficial cuts to the left hind leg.
A veterinary inspection of FAITHFUL BOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
CLEVER SPIRIT and DISTINCT COMMANDER were sent for sampling.
