Recap by phillip woo

Indigo Way was rated in midfield and two deep, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished up willingly to get up in the final 20m for the win with a step up in trip and light weight with a rise in grade. Fun Heroes eventually found cover two back and two deep behind the good pace asserted by the quartet of Public Figure, Jun Hua, Hollywood Kiss and Ho Wongchoy, was under the gun four deep approaching the final bend, straightened seven wide, hit the front 200m out and kept up a good gallop for second. Let's Goal settled ahead of midfield and on the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening and ran on well for a placing with money coming on late. Sichuan Legend settled behind midfield and on the rails, shifted four deep upon straightening and went to the line reasonably well in a much-improved effort with a return to blinkers. Owners' Glory made some ground late without menacing. Victory Mascot approached the final bend widest out and ran passed beaten runners. Favourite Delta Hedge rushed was running on empty at the 150m. Hollywood Kiss was posted three deep on the speed, dropped one off outside the leader Public Figure at the 500m, hit the straight four deep and was stopping 100m out. Public Figure was given too hard a time on the speed and was coming back to the field 150m out. Jun Hua was struggling 500m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (386) - THE VOLUNTEERS' CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class 3 - 1800 Meters HO WONGCHOY shifted out at the start and bumped OWNERS GLORY.

After this, OWNERS GLORY was taken across behind runners.

Passing the 1700 Metres, JUN HUA and PUBLIC FIGURE bumped.

Throughout the race, HO WONGCHOY travelled wide and without cover and in the Straight gave ground.

HOLLYWOOD KISS also travelled wide and without cover until near the 800 Metres.

After the 500 Metres, VICTORY MASCOT was taken wider by OWNERS GLORY which shifted out to improve its position.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of DELTA HEDGE, D Whyte said that after his mount began awkwardly he had to ride DELTA HEDGE along in the early stages to take up a forward position as instructed.

He said in the run to the winning post on the first occasion he had to ride DELTA HEDGE along to prevent FUN HEROES from shifting in, however, after passing the winning post on the first occasion he shifted in to race on the fence and after this DELTA HEDGE travelled satisfactorily.

He said rounding the Home Turn he made his run when FUN HEROES improved to his outside and whilst FUN HEROES was able to finish off the race, DELTA HEDGE was disappointing in the manner in which it did not respond to his riding and weakened over the final 200 Metres.

A veterinary inspection of DELTA HEDGE and HO WONGCHOY after the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of JUN HUA after the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being allowed to race again, JUN HUA will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

DELTA HEDGE, INDIGO WAY and FUN HEROES were sent for sampling.
