Recap by phillip woo

I'm A Witness jumped well to sit one off in second behind favourite Flying Monkey, advanced to the front four deep at the 200m and edged clear for a deserving first win after placing in seven of 12 earlier runs. Flying Monkey over-raced a bit on the lead, cornered a half-length on top and grudgingly gave way late. Clever Spirit kept up only a grinding action following a box-seat run. Winning King was hustled from a wide gate to quickly land a spot one off the fence with cover in fourth, straightened five deep and kept plugging away to just miss a placing. Dr Race settled third from the rear, swung the final bend with one wider out and made some ground late. Hasta La Vista held his ground following a rails run in midfield. Happy Gains had a tough run travelling worse than midfield and kept on evenly with two wider out over the last 150m. Aeroluminance failed to let down after straightening five deep following a one-off run in midfield. He'll need more time. Meisterstueck was withdrawn on veterinary advice at the gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (736)-TAI MONG TSAI HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

GOLD TALENT was withdrawn on 21.6.16 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (right fore tendon injury) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter DR RACE (K Teetan).

Before being allowed to race again, GOLD TALENT will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After being loaded, MEISTERSTUECK became fractious and kicked out at the back gates, resulting in both hind legs being caught over the back gates.

Acting on veterinary advice that MEISTERSTUECK had sustained wounds to the left hind leg and as such was not suitable to race, the horse was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, MEISTERSTUECK will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

RED HORSE was slow to begin.

AEROLUMINANCE began only fairly.

HASTA LA VISTA and CLEVER SPIRIT bumped at the start.

PEACE ON EARTH and DR RACE were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

At the 1100 Metres, RED HORSE lost its right front plate.

Near the 1050 Metres, HAPPY GAINS and MIGHTY EQUUS momentarily raced tight inside WINNING KING.

Passing the 1050 Metres, HASTA LA VISTA became unbalanced when crowded for room between AEROLUMINANCE and CLEVER SPIRIT which was taken out by FLYING MONKEY which got its head on the side and shifted out.

M L Yeung (WINNING STAR) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1000 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of AEROLUMINANCE, causing that horse to be badly crowded for room, blunder and lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

In this incident, HASTA LA VISTA, which was racing to the inside of AEROLUMINANCE, became unbalanced when momentarily crowded.

M L Yeung was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 11 July 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 Friday, 1 July 2016.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey Yeung's good race riding record during the most recent 2014/2015 and current racing seasons.

Rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight, FLYING MONKEY lay out under pressure.

Throughout the race, HAPPY GAINS travelled wide and without cover.

A veterinary inspection of AEROLUMINANCE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

I'M A WITNESS and FLYING MONKEY were sent for sampling.
