Recap by phillip woo

Firming late, Costa Del Sol was rated ahead of midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend five wide and stretched out well to get up in the final 20m for the win with a switch to dirt racing. Palepale settled second and one off the fence, straightened three deep and finished up nicely to make it very close at the finish. Favourite Wah May Star was posted deep near the speed, before dashing nearly two lengths clear at the 800m, straightened nearly two lengths on top and gave way in the last 100m. Slick Bullet made his run ahead of midfield and near the rails, straightened three deep and made some ground to nearly snatch third at a price. Touch Well travelled prominently along the inside, shifted off the fence and was in the hunt until coming up flat in the last 100m in an encouraging debut. Forest Star missed the start but was making ground when the race was all over. Quantum Power was struggling 200m out in a disappointing performance. Royal Doctor broke down approaching the 800m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (396) - HEATHER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters FOREST STAR was checked when crowded for room at the start between PALEPALE and COSTA DEL SOL which shifted out.

NEEDLES AND THREAD was slow to begin.

When ROYAL DOCTOR broke down near the 900 Metres, SLICK BULLET and PERFECT FIT were hampered in consequence.

Making the first turn near the 650 Metres, TOUCH WELL got its head up and shifted out away from the heels of PALEPALE.

In the Straight, the whip carried by T Clark (PALEPALE) broke.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of QUANTUM POWER, G Mossm stated that making the first turn his mount got its head up on a number of occasions and shifted off the track.

He said after this QUANTUM POWER continued to hang out, which it did not do at its most recent start, resulting in it racing wide and without cover.

He said QUANTUM POWER came under pressure rounding the Home Turn and despite being ridden along was disappointing in the manner in which it weakened in the Straight.

Trainer R Gibson will be interviewed regarding the disappointing performance of QUANTUM POWER prior to the Happy Valley racemeeting next Wednesday, 15 February 2012.

A veterinary inspection of QUANTUM POWER and NEEDLES AND THREAD after the race did not show any significant findings.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that PALEPALE had lost its right hind plate.

WAH MAY STAR, COSTA DEL SOL and PALEPALE were sent for sampling.
