Recap by phillip woo

Euro Swiftly made his run behind midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend widest out and let down nicely to wear down Jimson The Best and Beauty Success for a narrow win. Jimson The Best was rated midfield and two deep, straightened six wide and finished nicely to come up a stride short. Beauty Success dived inside for a clear run at the 200m, swept to the lead 100m out and was swamped late. Ole Ole bided his time at the rear of the field, shifted into the middle of the track upon straightening and was getting going late to fill the frame in fourth. Punted late, Bet On Me sat outside the crawling pace of Smart Fortune, assumed the lead 400m out and kept on evenly over the final 100m. Vigor Delight was always off the track around midfield, swung the final bend to the outside of Beauty Success and only held his ground in the run to the line. Open Sesame made his run in midfield and on the rails, straightened four deep short of room and made some ground late before finishing up evenly over the last 50m as the late-fancied favourite. Jolly Good enjoyed the box-seat run but found nothing when push came to shove. Specked late, Smart Fortune faded after dictating a cheap run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (107) - LO WAI HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1650 Meters MOONWALK was withdrawn on 18.10.11 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter OPEN SESAME (Apprentice T H So).

PEGASUS SUPREME was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (injury to left hind limb).

CHATER D'CAT was also withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (swollen right knee).

Before being allowed to race again, MOONWALK, PEGASUS SUPREME and CHATER D'CAT will all be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SHIFACHI TRADITION was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, OPEN SESAME raced in restricted room between BEAUTY SUCCESS and JOLLY GOOD.

After passing the winning post on the first occasion, EURO SWIFTLY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of JIMSON THE BEST.

At the 1200 Metres, OPEN SESAME was checked away from the heels of JOLLY GOOD after being awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse for some distance.

In this incident, OPEN SESAME struck the heels of JOLLY GOOD which became unbalanced.

After this, OPEN SESAME got its head up and proved difficult to settle.

EURO SWIFTLY, which was following OPEN SESAME, was checked away from the heels of that horse in this incident and in doing so shifted out, resulting in BLESSING becoming unbalanced when bumped and taken wider.

When BLESSING was taken wider, it shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of VIGOR DELIGHT which became unbalanced, got its head up and shifted wider.

After this, VIGOR DELIGHT continued to travel wide and without cover.

Rounding the Home Turn, VIGOR DELIGHT and BEAUTY SUCCESS bumped as BEAUTY SUCCESS shifted to the outside of BET ON ME into clear running.

In this incident, BEAUTY SUCCESS turned its head to the left and attempted to savage VIGOR DELIGHT.

As this was the first occasion on which BEAUTY SUCCESS had come to notice in this respect, its actions were brought to the attention of Trainer A S Cruz who was advised that a warning would be placed upon BEAUTY SUCCESS.

Approaching the 200 Metres, VIGOR DELIGHT got its head on the side and shifted out, resulting in JIMSON THE BEST being taken wider.

Over the final 200 Metres, SHIFACHI TRADITION had difficulty obtaining clear running.

A veterinary inspection of JOLLY GOOD after the race did not show any significant findings other than the horse had lost its left hind plate.

OPEN SESAME, EURO SWIFTLY and JIMSON THE BEST were sent for sampling.
