Recap by phillip woo

Happy Yeah Yeah jumped much better this time to lead from gate six, cornered two lengths on top and kept up a strong gallop for a sixth career win over this trip. Favourite Key Witness settled fourth form the rear and one off the rails from a wide gate, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished willingly to grab second 50m out. Smart Man came charging from behind midfield with two wider out to snatch third in the final few strides from Mr Ginger, who kept on all right after tracking the leader one off. Plunged late, Trump stayed on five deep without menacing following a midfield run with some cover. Happy Journey settled behind along the rails, straightened near the inside and made some ground without menacing. He's looking for a longer trip. Charity Joy grudgingly gave way after travelling without cover near the speed from a wide gate. Well-punted late, Master Kochanwong never recovered after copping a check coming to the final bend following a box-seat run. Ensemble was hampered travelling in behind Master Kochanwong and allowed to fade out in the drive.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (129)-YEW HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Metres

ENSEMBLE shifted in at the start, resulting in SMART MAN being crowded for room outside MASTER KOCHANWONG.

Shortly after the start, RAINBOW FIGHTER was steadied after being crowded for room between KEY WITNESS and MR GINGER which shifted out.

From wide barriers, RAINBOW FIGHTER and COUR VALANT were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 1000 Metres, SMART MAN got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of ENSEMBLE.

Making the turn after the 1000 Metres, RAINBOW FIGHTER proved difficult to settle and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of KEY WITNESS.

Approaching the 400 Metres, TRUMP raced tight between ENSEMBLE and CHARITY JOY.

C K Tong (MR GINGER) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 400 Metres he failed to make sufficient effort to prevent his mount from shifting in, resulting in MASTER KOCHANWONG being crowded for room and having to be severely checked.

ENSEMBLE, which was following MASTER KOCHANWONG, was also severely checked in consequence.

C K Tong was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 1 December 2014 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 19 November, 2014.

C Y Ho (HAPPY JOURNEY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 200 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of RAINBOW FIGHTER, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

C Y Ho was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 1 December 2014 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 19 November, 2014.
