Recap by phillip woo

Firming favourite, Best Eleven settled ahead of midfield and one off the rails, rounded the final bend four wide and quickened well to take control 100m out for a fifth win from nine starts. Arrived Ahead wasn't flash into stride, rushed up four deep to sit level with King Mossman for the front at the 750m, assumed the lead outright three deep at the 200m and kept on gamely when headed to hold off fast-finishing Straight Gold for second. Straight Gold recovered after rearing at the start, had to duck and weave for a clear run upon straightening and eventually split runners at the 200m for a closing third. Tailwind settled third and along the fence, straightened one off the fence and stayed on OK. Chater Mikado stayed to the inside upon straightening and made only a mild bid late. King Mossman couldn't keep up the gallop over the final 150m off a big weight. Amigo made some ground without threatening. Paganini's Soul was posted three deep and kept on evenly over the final 200m. He can be forgiven for this run and will be worth keeping safe over the 1,400m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (415) - BAILEY HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200 Meters SIR EAGLES was withdrawn on 18.2.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (cut left forearm) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter PROLIFIC CHAMPION (T Clark).

Before being allowed to race again, SIR EAGLES will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

CHATER MIKADO was slow to begin.

As the start was effected, STRAIGHT GOLD bounded in the air and consequently lost ground.

ARRIVED AHEAD began awkwardly, shifted in at the start and in doing so bumped the hindquarters of PROLIFIC CHAMPION which became unbalanced.

After being crossed by KING MOSSMAN, TAILWIND was steadied away from the heels of that horse for some distance near the 800 Metres.

Near the 800 Metres, WINDICATOR POWER was checked when crowded for room between PROLIFIC CHAMPION which was racing tight to the inside of ARRIVED AHEAD and BEST ELEVEN (M Chadwick) which shifted away from the heels of TAILWIND.

M Chadwick was advised that whilst there were some circumstances to this incident, nonetheless he was severely reprimanded and advised that prior to permitting his mount to shift ground, he must ensure that he is sufficiently clear of other runners.

After the 800 Metres, PAGANINIS SOUL was left racing wide and without cover.

At the entrance to the Straight, CHATER MIKADO was steadied and shifted to the inside of TAILWIND to obtain clear running.

STRAIGHT GOLD was unable to obtain clear running until passing the 300 Metres.

After the race, K C Leung (PIZZAZZ) reported that, in his opinion, the horse was not suited by the tempo of todays race.

He said because of the manner in which the race was run, PIZZAZZ finished off the race only one-paced in the Straight.

Following the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that PROLIFIC CHAMPION had lost its right hind plate.

A veterinary inspection of ELEGANCE DESIRE after the race did not show any significant findings.

BEST ELEVEN and ARRIVED AHEAD were sent for sampling.
