Recap by phillip woo

Well-punted late, Newswire Too made his run behind midfield and on the rails, straightened two deep, pushed four deep at the 350m, ducked inside for a clear run at the 200m and stretched out nicely to take control 60m for an overdue win after coming up third in six earlier starts. Firming favourite, Real General settled fifth and one off the fence, rallied five wide upon straightening and stayed on second best with every chance while laying inside at the 150m. Lotus Love failed to obtain cover three deep in midfield, cornered to the outside of Real General upon straightening and kept grinding away. Epee De Hua cleared Speedy for the lead at the 1,000m, went a good pace while cornering a length on top and kept on OK. Super Gentleman was ridden quietly, pushed into the clear with two wider out at the 400m and was finding the line strongly with a drop in grade. Island Spring was never a factor, while Speedy wasn't going anywhere fast when copping a check 120m out from Real General.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (628) - NEWS BAR TALK HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400 Meters As the start was effected, SEIZE THE DAY put its head down and lost a considerable amount of ground.

Before being allowed to race again, SEIZE THE DAY will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial.

Also as the start was effected, NEWSWIRE TOO lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently was slow to begin.

ALPS GLORY was slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, GLITTERING was shifted in to obtain a position with cover behind the speed in the early stages, however, after being caught wide was taken back further after the 1000 Metres in an attempt to obtain cover behind LOTUS LOVE.

Near the 800 Metres, LOTUS LOVE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of REAL GENERAL and shifted out.

Near the 700 Metres, GLITTERING got its head on the side and hung out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of LOTUS LOVE.

After the 700 Metres, LOTUS LOVE was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 250 Metres, NEWSWIRE TOO, which was finishing off the race well, was momentarily awkwardly placed close to the heels of KING OF FISH II and was shifted in to continue improving.

Apprentice K C Ng (REAL GENERAL) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 100 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of SPEEDY, causing that horse to be checked and lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

Apprentice Ng was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 18 June 2012 on which day he may resume race riding (4 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 3 June 2012.

Near the 50 Metres, LOTUS LOVE was brushed by REAL GENERAL which shifted out.

Close to the finishing line, ALPS GLORY raced close to the heels of KING OF FISH II.
