Recap by phillip woo

Top Bonus eased back after jumping best to travel fourth along the fence, shifted outside the leader for a clear run at the 250m and finished well to get up for a second win from 16 outings. I'm A Witness was pestered for the front first by Idyllic Wind and then Joyful The Great after crossing to lead at the 1,000m, cornered a length on top and grudgingly gave way. He's overdue for a win after placing in five straight runs. Favourite Lucky Profit closed nicely after travelling near the rear following a sharp bump soon after the break to get up for a placing. Pearl Win drifted to the centre of the track under a hustling ride following a three back run along the fence to get up for a quartet spot with a return to Class Four. Idyllic Wind pressed the speed from a wide gate and kept up an even gallop over the final 150m. Love Chunghwa held his ground after travelling with cover worse than midfield. Joyful The Great weakened after a without cover run near the speed.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (372)-EDINBURGH HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

Trainer P F Yiu tonight pleaded guilty to a charge of Rule 50(2) in that as the person responsible for all matters pertaining to the running of his stable, he negligently entered and declared PROMPT EXPRESS to compete in this race within the recommended withdrawal period following that horse being last treated with Broncopulmin powder prior to being entered for this race.

For this breach, Mr Yiu was fined the sum of $30,000.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into consideration that Mr Yiu had made application for PROMPT EXPRESS to be withdrawn from this race prior to betting commencing, but also that he had been previously penalized for similar breaches of the Rule.

SGT ROCK and PLANET GIANT were severely checked on jumping when crowded for room between JOYFUL THE GREAT which shifted in marginally and LUCKY PROFIT which was taken out by TOP BONUS.

In this incident, SGT ROCK made heavy contact with the hindquarters of LUCKY PROFIT, resulting in that horse being turned out which resulted in the crowding to SGT ROCK and PLANET GIANT being exacerbated.

S de Sousa (PEARL WIN) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that at the 1150 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of GOOD LUCK MAN, causing that horse to be hampered and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

S de Sousa was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence immediately following the penalty incurred in Race 4.

Accordingly, this suspension will commence on Monday 29 February 2016 and to expire on Monday, 7 March 2016 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

Making the first turn after the 1000 Metres, GOOD LUCK MAN proved difficult to settle and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of JOYFUL THE GREAT.

After this, GOOD LUCK MAN continued to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up repeatedly throughout the middle stages.

After the 900 Metres, JOYFUL THE GREAT proved difficult to settle and shifted out away from the heels of IDYLLIC WIND which resulted in JOYFUL THE GREAT then racing wide and without cover.

This resulted in GOLDEN CANNON being taken wider still.

JOYFUL THE GREAT was then ridden forward to improve its position around IDYLLIC WIND to race outside the lead after the 600 Metres.

Shortly after entering the Straight, TOP BONUS was shifted away from the heels of I'M A WITNESS to obtain clear running.

Passing the 300 Metres, GOLDEN CANNON, which was giving ground, was inconvenienced when HELEN'S CHOICE shifted out.

Near the 250 Metres, LUCKY PROFIT was shifted in away from the heels of JOYFUL THE GREAT to obtain clear running.

Throughout the race, GOLDEN CANNON travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of JOYFUL THE GREAT immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, JOYFUL THE GREAT will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of GOOD LUCK MAN immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LUCKY PROFIT, TOP BONUS and I'M A WITNESS were sent for sampling.
