Recap by phillip woo

Favourite New Vision was posted in midfield and two-to-three deep from a wide gate, rounded the final bend five wide and quickened well to come home a nose ahead of a fast-finishing Open Sesame carrying a big weight. He'll remain competitive off a light weight in the next grade over this trip. In-form Open Sesame settled behind midfield and on the rails, shifted into the clear six deep at the 400m and was finishing off soundly off a light weight with a step up in grade. Berio pressed forward from gate 12 to lead outright at the 1,200m, straightened a length on top and was overhauled in deep stretch. Kyara bided his time and was held up for a run until forcing his way along the fence 100m out to finish a close fourth. He's overdue for a win. Majestic Falcon was rated third from the rear and two deep, was back to last at the 700m, pushed widest out at the 400m and just missed out on a placing in a blanket finish of five. Specked late, Adoration travelled fourth on the fence, shifted four deep off the heels of Voile Rouge and New Vision at the 150m and stay on OK. Voile Rouge went forward from a wide gate to park outside the leader and came up one-paced over the final 200m. Gift Is Gift travelled three deep with some cover behind midfield, was pushed four deep by New Vision at the 500m, hit the straight widest out, loomed a winning chance at the 200m and came up flat soon after. Amigo bided his time at the rear, strode closer at the 800m, swung the final bend with one wider out and only kept passed beaten runners.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (305) - LUNG KONG HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1400 Meters ABSOLUTE HEDGE was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (right fore capped elbow).

Before being allowed to race again, ABSOLUTE HEDGE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Shortly after the start, KYARA was crowded for room between ADORATION which shifted out and BOULD MOVER which shifted in after being bumped by FLYING SUPREME.

Also shortly after the start, MAJESTIC FALCON, which was being steadied to be shifted across behind runners, was crowded for room between IMPERIAL ROME and GIFT IS GIFT which shifted in.

For some distance approaching and passing the 1000 Metres, KYARA got its head up when proving difficult to settle.

Near the 900 Metres, BOULD MOVER was steadied away from the heels of VOILE ROUGE (T Angland) which shifted in when not properly clear.

T Angland was advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear when shifting ground in future.

Near the 700 Metres, GIFT IS GIFT was forced out into a position without cover by NEW VISION which shifted out to follow IMPERIAL ROME.

Rounding the Home Turn and again shortly after the 400 Metres, KYARA was momentarily crowded for room inside NEW DEERFIELD which shifted in.

OPEN SESAME had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

Over the final 300 Metres, MAJESTIC FALCON got its head on the side and hung in under pressure.

Prior to the 200 Metres, ADORATION had difficulty obtaining clear running and after the 200 Metres was shifted out to obtain clear running.

NEW DEERFIELD, which was racing to the outside of ADORATION, was inconvenienced when that horse shifted out.

Over the final 200 Metres, KYARA had difficulty obtaining clear running and over the concluding stages raced tight inside BERIO.

Throughout the race, IMPERIAL ROME travelled wide and without cover.

NEW VISION and OPEN SESAME were sent for sampling.

GENERAL : 1.

4 January 2012 Happy Valley Racemeeting - Race 7 (294) The Stewards today afforded Mr C H Yip, the trainer of TRAVEL GUIDE, the opportunity to view the video of Apprentice K C Ngs handling of that horse in this race, particularly after the 1000 Metres.

Mr Yip stated that he had advised Apprentice Ng that he had erred in not making a far greater effort to position TRAVEL GUIDE closer to the back of DELTA HEDGE and improve his position when it was clearly available to him to do so.

He said he also advised Apprentice Ng that he needed to be more positive in his races and more aggressive in the appropriate circumstances.
