Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late, Hayhay worked hard to find the front one off at the 850m, cornered a length on top and kept on gamely with a step back in distance. Favourite Golden Chopsticks was ridden for luck second from the rear, swung the final bend with one wider out and finished well to grab second 50m out. City Power bided his time at the rear of the field from a wide gate, shifted furthest out at the 250m and closed off nicely to inject value into the tierce. He is not far off a winning run. Baltic Warrior settled three deep with cover behind midfield, rounded the final bend six deep and just edged out late-fancied Mighty Equus for a Quartet spot. Mighty Equus settled fourth along the rails, lost some ground at the 500m, straightened four deep and kept plugging away to miss a First-4 by a bob of heads. Lovely Naughty worked hard to sit outside the leader Hayhay at the 600m and was swamped for a placing 50m out. Our Honour handed up the lead to sit one off in third with cover, straightened with every chance and was yielding ground 150m out in another disappointing effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (554)-KING'S PARK HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

CITY POWER began only fairly.

ENDLESS LOVE began awkwardly and shortly after the start was bumped by CHEERS VICTORIES which shifted in.

At the 900 Metres, ENDLESS LOVE was crowded for room inside GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS which shifted in away from GOOD VIEW DELIGHTS which was racing keenly when awkwardly placed inside the heels of CHEERS VICTORIES.

C Y Ho (HAYHAY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that at the 600 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of OUR HONOUR, causing that horse to be taken in across the rightful running of MIGHTY EQUUS which was checked when crowded for room.

C Y Ho was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 14 May 2015 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, 6 May 2015.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey Ho's good race riding record during the current racing season.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, ENDLESS LOVE was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CASTLE KNIGHT.

OUR HONOUR made the Home Turn awkwardly.

Approaching the 200 Metres, CHEERS VICTORIES and MIGHTY EQUUS raced tight.

In the Straight, BALTIC WARRIOR lay in under pressure.

J Moreira (BALTIC WARRIOR) was fined $3,000 for improper use of the whip in that he raised weal marks over the horse's right flank.

A veterinary inspection of CHEERS VICTORIES and OUR HONOUR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

HAYHAY and GOLDEN CHOPSTICKS were sent for sampling.
