Recap by phillip woo

Wah May Friend rushed forward to easily lead from a wide gate, straightened nearly two lengths on top and kept finding to land a betting plunge. Another well-punted runner, Hammer King sat on the back of the leader along the fence, stayed to the inside upon straightening and kept on well for second in a blanket finish or the minors. Invincible Dragon was posted without cover in a handy spot, straightened with three wider out and stayed on nicely to make it a bob of heads for second. Racing Supernova settled three back along the fence, shifted into the open five deep at the 300m and was making some ground late to just miss a placing. Exciting Dream made some ground without menacing five deep in the straight drive following a patient ride third from the rear. All You Wish got by a few widest out after making his run at the tail of the field. Second favourite New Asia Sunrise failed to let down after making his run outside Racing Supernova in midfield.

EXCITING DREAM was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

C Schofield (WHY WHY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that after the 1000 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of NEW ASIA SUNRISE, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

C Schofield was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 11 July 2016 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).
