Recap by phillip woo

Blue Caviar was turning heads from the training track and delivered a smart win on debut as the late-fancied favourite. He was up on the speed, stuck his head in front at the 600m and drew clear in the final 100m for a convincing win. Solar Great vied for the lead with a group of five to the outside of Blue Caviar, three off the grandstand side, was under pressure 400m out and kept on nicely with roll-up money. Wind Damper was handy in the run, closest the inside and stayed on well to secure a placing. He's yet to miss the board in four runs over this trip. My Melody made his run near the outside fence ahead of midfield, shifted inside at the 300m and kept on well to figure outside the placings. Real Generous made his run at the rear after a slow start but finish off well with a move to a tongue tie. Oriental Courser recovered after copping up bump at the break to settle behind midfield and kept up a steady gallop. He was in need of the run off a lengthy break with lameness issues and throat surgery. Hero's Win was beaten for speed and made up a fair deal of ground in a much-improved effort. Early favourite Smiling Watch made his run third from the rear, was under pressure to pick up at the 450m and only worked passed beaten runners. It was a disappointing effort, but needs a longer trip.

Race Three: (021) - HUIZHOU HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Meters ROCKET PROUD was withdrawn on 17.9.11 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame and sore left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter TWIN TURBO (J Lloyd).

For some distance approaching the 300 Metres, TWIN TURBO was awkwardly placed close to the heels of PAPAS.

After the race, K C Leung reported that his saddle shifted back on ORIENTAL COURSER near the 200 Metres.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of SMILING WATCH, B Prebble stated that in the Parade Ring and on the way to the Start SMILING WATCH was settled and did not get stirred up.

He said however that after being loaded SMILING WATCH became very fractious and reared on a number of occasions.

He said SMILING WATCH began awkwardly and then in the early stages did not stretch out as it had done in its barrier trial and in its work in the lead up to todays race.

He added that he placed SMILING WATCH under pressure prior to the 600 Metres, however, the horse still did not stretch out and was disappointing.

A veterinary inspection of SMILING WATCH after the race did not show any significant findings.
