Recap by phillip woo

Punted late, Tonyboy continued his terrific run of form when just holding off Born In China after finding the front 200m out following a pace-stalking run. Born In China finished willingly with three wider out after travelling one off the fence behind midfield to just miss carrying top weight. He's always a chance over this course. Accepted had his chance following a box-seat run and found a couple just too good. Majestic Anthem was ridden for luck third from the rear, straightened four deep and finished well to give the Quartet some value. Lucky Year faded back to last when forced very wide at the 950m, swung the final bend widest out and finished up well. Specked late, Your Read My Mind weakened in the final 100m after dictating the run from a wide gate. High Five made some ground with one wider out after making his run outside Born In China. Midnight Rattler didn't fire following a rails run in midfield in his first Valley outing. Favourite Line Seeker was among those hampered after a deep run in midfield passing the 1,000m, swung the final bend with two wider out and was eased down 250m out.

On jumping, FABULOUS NOVEMBER bounded in the air and lost ground.

ACCEPTED began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped LORD SINCLAIR.

PEACE N PROSPERITY shifted out at the start and bumped heavily with HIGH FIVE, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, HIGH FIVE was steadied away from the heels of PEACE N PROSPERITY which shifted out after being bumped by LINE SEEKER which was racing tight outside TONYBOY.

Apprentice H N Wong (YOU READ MY MIND) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 1100 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of LUCKY YEAR, causing that horse to be checked, to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled and in turn shift in onto PEACE N PROSPERITY which in turn was taken in onto LINE SEEKER, causing those horses to be badly crowded for room.

Apprentice Wong was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 23 May 2016 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Saturday, 14 May 2016.

He added after the 500 Metres he placed his mount under pressure, however, LINE SEEKER became unbalanced in its action, made the Home Turn awkwardly and commenced to give ground.
