Recap by phillip woo

Post-time favourite Gallant Rock edged clear over the final 200m after leading narrowly early on from a perfect gate. Early favourite Winner St Paul's ran on well after travelling one off the stands side fore of midfield to easily take second. He'll be winning shortly. Natural Team travelled three off the grandstand fence in midfield, switched outside for a clear run at the 200m and finished well to grab Timely Arrived in the shadows of the post for third. Timely Arrived Just held off the fast-finishing Newswire Free after a handy run along the far side from a low gate. Newswire Free settled third from the rear in the center of the course, switched into the open with one further out on the far side at the 300m and was hitting the line nicely. Newcomer I'm A Witness gradually faded after sharing the early lead. Fantastico was only plodding over the final 150m after making his run to the outside of Timely Arrived.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (076)-HWAMEI HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Metres

Whilst in the saddling stalls, TIMELY ARRIVED had its left front plate refitted.

TIMELY ARRIVED was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

As the start was effected, GOLDEN BAUHINIA lifted its front feet off the ground and consequently lost ground.

Then when being ridden along to make up lost ground, GOLDEN BAUHINIA became unbalanced when crowded for room outside FANTASTICO which shifted out.

This resulted in GOLDEN BAUHINIA racing back in the field.

SMILING ALL and KING WINSA bumped at the start.

GALLANT ROCK began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped TOUCH GO.

MASTER STEED was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 800 Metres, GOLDEN BAUHINIA was awkwardly placed outside MASTER STEED.

Near the 700 Metres, FANTASTICO was awkwardly placed inside the heels of I'M A WITNESS which shifted in marginally.

Approaching the 500 Metres, the left rein of FAST MARVEL (B Prebble) snapped, resulting in Jockey Prebble becoming badly unbalanced.

MASTER STEED, which was following, was checked in away from the heels of FAST MARVEL in consequence.

After this, B Prebble made an unsuccessful attempt to regain some use of the broken rein, however, after travelling some distance was able to grasp the left side of the bridle.

As a consequence, B Prebble was not able to ride out FAST MARVEL for the remainder of the race.

After the race, the Stewards examined the reins used on FAST MARVEL in this race and found them to be relatively new with no obvious sign of wear.

The necessary measures were taken to ensure that the batch from which these reins emanated will not be used in future.

K C Ng (I'M A WITNESS) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 300 Metres he permitted his mount to shift out when not clear of SMILING ALL, causing that horse to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

K C Ng was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Friday, 23 October 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Saturday, 10 October 2015.

A short distance after this, SMILING ALL was checked away from the heels of WINNER ST PAUL'S which shifted in marginally.

In this incident, I'M A WITNESS and WINNER ST PAUL'S both became unbalanced after making contact.

Approaching the 100 Metres, TIMELY ARRIVED shifted in under pressure.

Over the concluding stages, KING WINSA was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FANTASTICO and outside MASTER STEED.

Because of this, KING WINSA was not able to be ridden out.

A veterinary inspection of I'M A WITNESS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GALLANT ROCK and WINNER ST PAUL'S were sent for sampling.
