Recap by phillip woo

Vital Flyer was a handy fifth and three off the stands side, was under a relentless left whip at the 300m and overhauled the short-priced favourite Amber Sky 100m out with a return to blinkers. Amber Sky jumped well before handing up the lead to Psychologist, easily reclaimed the front 400m out on the stands side and found one too good on the afternoon. Rumba King made his run third from the rear with two outside him in the centre of the course and finished up well to grab Psychologist 50m out for a placing. Psychologist showed natural speed to lead underneath Amber Sky at the 900m, was headed 400m out and fought on well in her first run in Hong Kong. Punted late, Earl Of Leitrim made his run at the rear and just off the grandstand fence, switched into the clear at the 350m and got going late when the race was all over. My Name Is Bond made his run second from the rear and just outside Rumba King and made some progress late without ever looking a threat. He needs a longer sprint.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (007) - ALBERT HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1000 Meters MY NAME IS BOND began awkwardly.

RUMBA KING shifted in at the start and bumped NORDIC ONE.

EARL OF LEITRIM was slow to begin and shortly after the start was steadied away from the heels of AMBER SKY which shifted out.

AMBER SKY then bumped GOLD BALL which became unbalanced.

Near the 400 Metres, VITAL FLYER became unbalanced in its action.

Passing the 300 Metres, MY NAME IS BOND was shifted to the outside of LEELIS STAR after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse which was giving ground.

M L Yeung (RUMBA KING) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 50 Metres he permitted his mount to shift out when not clear of MY NAME IS BOND, causing that horse to be checked away from the heels of RUMBA KING and lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

M L Yeung was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 27 September 2012 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, 19 September 2012.

VITAL FLYER and AMBER SKY were sent for sampling.
