Recap by phillip woo

Classa finally got his day in the sun at his 41st outing. He travelled nicely worse than midfield and two deep with cover, rounded the final bend with three wide and let down nicely to look the winner 100m out. Well-punted, Gorgeous Ruler sat outside the leader Ray's Favourite, worked to a narrow lead at the 200m and was unable to match the winner over the final 50m. Polygold made his run second from the rear and two deep, peeled widest out at the 300m and finished off with plenty of purpose to overhaul Conqueror for third. Conqueror enjoyed a cosy trip in fifth, hit the straight four wide and stayed on well, but came up one-paced over the final 100m. Ray's Favourite wasn't flash into stride and posted deep early on from a wide gate before mustering to lead outright on the fence at the 1,200m, was pestered by Gorgeous Ruler to his outside at the 1,000m, cornered in nearly a length on top and was struggling 150m out. Cheerful Double settled behind midfield and on the rails, straightened three wide and only passed beaten runners. Grandfield enjoyed the run of the race in third, straightened four wide and was stopping 100m out in a disappointing effort. Full Version enjoyed a nice sit underneath Classa and kept on one-paced along the rails. Sohna made his run three deep and third from the rear, took closer order at the 500m and never looked likelywith a drop in grade.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (111) - SHEK TONG TSUI HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1650 Meters From a wide barrier, MEDIC CHAMPION was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

C K Tong (SPEED RACER) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that after the 1500 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when insufficiently clear of POLYGOLD, causing that horse to be checked and lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

C K Tong was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Sunday, 6 November 2011 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 26 October 2011.

C K Tong also pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the winning post on the first occasion he rode SPEED RACER along in an attempt to force a run between CLASSA and CHEERFUL DOUBLE where there was insufficient room, resulting in SPEED RACER being checked and in doing so shifting in, causing CHEERFUL DOUBLE to be badly crowded for room outside FULL VERSION which itself became badly unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by CHEERFUL DOUBLE.
