Recap by phillip woo

Best Eleven settled midfield and two-to-three deep, rounded the final bend with one wider out, quickened well to hit the lead 200m out and held a comfortable margin to the line for his third win from seven starts, despite carrying extra weight for this run. He is only a three-year-old and has more improvement to come. Tuxedo was posted behind midfield and three deep, cornered in with two wider out and ran on nicely to be a clear second as the short-priced favourite. He lost nothing in defeat and remains one to follow. Speechmaker bided his time second from the rear and three deep, shifted widest out at the 200m and was finding the line well to be a clear third. Super Goodies recovered after a slow break to settle better than midfield and along the rails at the 1,000m, worked to the lead three deep at the 300m and lost a placing 100m out. Horseshoe Fortune bided his time third from the rear and along the rails, stayed to the inside and kept on OK after barging his way between runners 100m out. Intellectualstride was rated worse than midfield and on the rails, rallied two deep upon straightening and whacked away over the final 200m. Longwah Rising travelled a handy fourth and one-off the fence, straightened four deep and came up empty 250m out. Won Ton King Prawn punched forward from a wide gate to lead before the first bend, lost the lead at the 500m to Perfect Gear, straightened four wide and was stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (322) - EPSOM HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters In the Parade Ring, HAPPY HOMING reared, resulting in its rider, C W Wong, being dislodged.

When parading behind the barriers, WON TON KING PRAWN became fractious and reared, resulting in its rider, B Doyle, being dislodged.

TUXEDO was difficult to load and then became fractious after being loaded.

Before being allowed to race again, TUXEDO will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

WON TON KING PRAWN began awkwardly.

SUPER GOODIES was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, SPEECHMAKER was crowded for room between LONGWAH RISING and BEST ELEVEN which shifted in.

Making the first turn near the 850 Metres, TUXEDO was severely checked and INTELLECTUALSTRIDE badly hampered when crowded for room between SUPER GOODIES which got its head on the side and hung out and BEST ELEVEN (M Guyon) which shifted in.

When TUXEDO was severely checked, SPEECHMAKER, which was following, was shifted out away from the heels of that horse.

M Guyon was advised that whilst the movement of SUPER GOODIES had a considerable bearing on this incident, nonetheless, in the opinion of the Stewards, he had permitted BEST ELEVEN to shift in slightly which also contributed to the incident.

He was advised to ensure that he leaves sufficient racing room for runners to his inside in future.

After the 600 Metres, WON TON KING PRAWN got its head on the side and hung out.

Near the 350 Metres, INTELLECTUALSTRIDE got its head on the side and shifted in, resulting in HORSESHOE FORTUNE being inconvenienced.

After the 200 Metres, HORSESHOE FORTUNE (C K Tong) was held up for clear running and near the 150 Metres was shifted to the outside of FREE AND EASY to obtain clear running.

When being shifted out, HORSESHOE FORTUNE made contact with INTELLECTUALSTRIDE, resulting in that horse becoming unbalanced.

C K Tong was advised to ensure that he exercises care when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

After the 100 Metres, INTELLECTUALSTRIDE was steadied away from the heels of SUPER GOODIES when unable to improve between that horse and HORSESHOE FORTUNE.

Because of this, INTELLECTUALSTRIDE was not tested over the concluding stages.

Throughout the race, HAPPY HOMING travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

A veterinary inspection of WON TON KING PRAWN after the race revealed that the horse had sustained a small cut to the right hind coronet.

BEST ELEVEN and TUXEDO were sent for sampling.
