Recap by phillip woo

Shiny Day pinged straight to the front from a middle gate, was allowed to getaway with slow fractions and kept finding for a maiden win at his fourth start. Chancellor was prominently ridden one-off the fence, straightened four deep and wore down John Dory for second as the best-backed runner. John Dory tracked the leader in second one-off the fence, straightened three deep and kept on one-paced over the final 100m. Favourite Peppermint was taken from gate 12 to settle third from the rear, rounded the final bend widest out and came home strongly to fill the frame in fourth. It was a big run in defeat behind slow fractions and will be hard to beat next time out. Master Elite settled behind midfield and two deep, hit the straight with two wider out and ran on well, before peaking inside the final 100m. The filly Honey Fortune made her run second from the rear and on the rails after going back from gate 13 and made a good deal of ground in a much-improved performance with a drop in grade. Sohna was travelling in restricted room and then three deep in midfield, rallied six wide and kept on only evenly over the final 200m. Sweetie Music enjoyed a soft run behind the speed and found nothing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (023) - SHENZHEN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400 Meters SOHNA blundered at the start and consequently lost ground.

SEASONS CREST was checked on jumping when crowded for room between DRAGON VICTORY and JOHNSON which got its head up and shifted out.

From wide barriers, PEPPERMINT and WADASURPRISE were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

For some distance approaching the 900 Metres, SOHNA raced tight between DRAGON VICTORY which had been shifted away from the fence and TELECOM TOP STAR (M Du Plessis) which shifted in.

M Du Plessis was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he leaves comfortable racing room for runners to his inside in future.

After this, TELECOM TOP STAR travelled wide and without cover.

Approaching and passing the 800 Metres, SEASONS CREST lost ground when reluctant to maintain its position inside MASTER ELITE.

Near the 650 Metres, JOHNSON got its head up and became unbalanced when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SWEETIE MUSIC.

Near the 200 Metres, ROMANCING TAMAR, which was commencing to give ground, was momentarily steadied when crowded for room between PEPPERMINT and MASTER ELITE, both of which shifted ground.

Whilst the Stewards were of the opinion that Apprentice C Y Hos riding out of PEPPERMINT, 4th placegetter, over the concluding stages did not affect the horses finishing position, nonetheless he was, in the presence of his allocated trainer, Mr C Fownes, reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out right to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

When questioned, G Cheyne stated that at its final start last season it had been intended for HONEY FORTUNE to be ridden with cover in order for the filly to be more settled in its races.

He said however that due to the circumstances of that race HONEY FORTUNE was obliged to lead and then did not finish off the race.

He stated in todays race, from barrier 13, he had been instructed to ride HONEY FORTUNE in a midfield position if possible, however, his overriding instruction was to ensure that the filly was settled and was then able to finish off the race.

He said from the wide barrier he was obliged to ride HONEY FORTUNE further back in the field than had been intended, however, the filly settled well.

He added that when placed under pressure HONEY FORTUNE closed off the race well and over the concluding stages was awkwardly placed close to the heels of JOHN DORY.

A veterinary inspection of SWEETIE MUSIC after the race did not show any significant findings.

PEPPERMINT, SHINY DAY and CHANCELLOR were sent for sampling.
